How do I eat a low-carb diet and stay aware of my cholesterol concerns?

For a long time, we have been told the cholesterol we eat is the way our blood level cholesterol goes up. That has long been debunked.

If you look at the Framingham Heart Study, the largest heart study in the world, half the people who had heart attacks had normal cholesterol. It is useless to make clinical decisions based on your cholesterol.

The LDL in the US is presumed to be a bad particle, but we believe it is too generic of a measurement. It is like calling something an automobile, which could be any number of makes and models.

The smallest LDL particles can get into the walls of your coronary arteries and form inflammatory plaque that can result in a problem. We find that when folks reduce refined carbs, they reduce small LDL particles.
