How to Drop Your Cholesterol
< 1 day ago
Dave Feldman is a software engineer who discovered for himself the benefits of a ketogenic diet in April 2015, experiencing what he describes as “seven blissful months” - until getting some labs back that included a 300+ total cholesterol. He learned he was a “hyper-responder,” which inspired him to learn all he could about cholesterol and the lipid system. For the last 2.5 years he’s been using self-experimentation methods to meticulously adjust dietary macronutrient ratios in order to manipulate his blood chemistry. He’s found out that the lipid system is actually quite easy to change, and does so in surprising ways related to diet.
Dave is here today with Dr. Tommy Wood to share his discoveries about all things cholesterol: LDL, HDL, VLDL, lean-mass hyper-responders, and what you need to know to evaluate your own labs. Dave is an active speaker and blogger, and his N=1 experiments are detailed on his blog at cholesterolcode.com.
