So my employer offers an increased discount if you meet particular criteria such as BMI, Cholesterol, blood pressure and nicotine use. I just got my results back for this year and wanted to share. I am rather perturbed because I am within the highest tier for everything except Cholesterol. I have been eating a paleo diet for the last ~9 months or so, before that I ate relatively well, but a lot more carbs and a lot less meat. Last year I was within the highest tier, but now because my cholesterol is of the lowest tier, thats where I will be.
2011/ 2012/ 2013
GLucose: 85/ 80/ 89 Trgiglycerides: 141/ 69/ 41 Total Cholesterol: 156/ 114/ 246 HDL: 58/ 55/ 114 LDL: 70/ 45/ 124
My diet is almost exclusively GF beef/ organic eggs/ organic chicken/ broccoli/ kale/ sprouted almonds/ TONS OF COCONUT/ organic bacon/ and a bunch of supplements/*NO ALCOHOL. Prior to have a herniated disc in my back, I exercise about 4 days a week. I expected my Cholesterol to raise, I am just bothered that I will now receive a %10 less discount. I do understand some of the parameters they give are rather strict, but I didn't think I would be this far off.
Any thoughts or opinions? I imagine I need more cardio, lol.
