  1. Thank you for the video. I felt like you were verbally attacking me for having high numbers according to my dr. I am watching your video because I do exercise and eat a pretty healthy diet and don’t drink much alcohol. I gave up refined and added sugar a year ago. So please let me know what someone like me can do, who had low triglycerides and decent HDL but was high on LDL in a kind and supportive way. My doctor said to limit consumption of meat including chicken.

      I was verbally attacking you for having high numbers? I’m confused about that one. More likely I was deeply questioning/doubting your doctor for identifying that your numbers are in fact a problem and that his solution of limiting meat would AT ALL help that. Which isn’t the case. What were your numbers? It’s likely if you eat a well balanced diet of real foods and aren’t overly stressed that they are “unremarkable”- meaning not of concern at all. As I mentioned, high LDL over 200 can point to low thyroid function. Increasing HDL I also mentioned can be done by increasing healthy fats from egg yolks and coconut oil in your diet… Let me know what else you feel you need pointers on here!

      Definitely! I’m not anti-meds if they’re necessary or helpful, but I think people are super quick to assume they’ll “fix” a problem and not want to make dietary/lifestyle changes that truly do the work!
