Latest cholesterol results are in

Laurie has been asking me to get checked since I started the Paleo Diet months ago. The issue is simple, my family has a history of high cholesterol and my own has been as high as 265 in the past.

At my last physical (April of 2011) my cholesterol as at 177, but I was eating very little fat and tons of carbs. No red meat and no dairy, cheese, or eggs.

On Paleo, I stopped the carbs and added red meat and eggs (sometimes at the same time). Laurie wanted me to get checked before I committed to continuing on Paleo - especially with another Paleo Challenge coming up soon.

I got checked. Results were incredible... total cholesterol was 162 - the lowest number I have ever had.

Great stuff!
