Wow - great info.

I know when i first changed over to eating lower carb along with higher fat, I took a lot of verbal interrogations from friends and family. So after a year I had a full blood panel drawn and compared it to the one I had had done about three months before starting a food plan lower in carbs and higher in fat and my LDL had went down by 50 and my HDL was up by 15. I didnt have high cholesterol in the first place but overall my doctor said it was a huge improvement!
