After reading through Jack Kronk's question regarding his cholesterol numbers I got to wondering whether high fat is only healthy in the absence of high carb and vice versa. Grok pointed out in Jack's thread someone who consumed a ton of fruit but... (more)

It is well known that a Paleo diet improves your triglyceride levels. However, can triglycerides get too low? How low is too low, and what does it mean when it is too low?
I recently had blood work done and it seems like the ratios are alright, but the overall cholesterol is a little high and I noticed that the HDL is high as well. Does cardio exercise tend to increase HDL levels? Total: 209 Triglyceride: 89 HDL:... (more)
