Here is why: I am hypoglycemic and anemic so eliminating the foods that cause highs and lows in my blood sugar is necessary for my sanity and more protein will cure my anemia naturally instead of me taking those nasty iron pills. I really hate eating pasta and being tired afterward. I really hate eating oatmeal for breakfast and feeling like I should take a nap. Based on my research this Ketogenic eating program will help get these in check since the program consists of 5% carbs, 65% good fat and 30% protein. Basically if it's green and has a face I can eat it. :-) The best part of this diet is BACON!
January 5th I weighed 225lbs. As of today, I weigh in at 193.
I had my cholesterol checked last week and these are my numbers:
Cholesterol. below 200mg
LdL. under 100 mg
HdL. over 55
Triglycerides under 100mg
My hdL and my LdL look good. They can definitely be better but my overall scores are fantastic and losing 14 lbs since March they are going to be slightly off. Apparently your triglycerides are the most important because they determine your likelihood of having a heart attack.
