    LIstening to Jimmy Moore – 95% accurate, 5% disappointing bullcrap. CT-calcium scan only shows plaque that has reached a stage where calcium has deposited. You youngsters may not reach that level until your 60′s but can be loaded with fatty plaques in the arteries that don’t appear in the scan. Be smug with your “zero” score if you want.
    The canard about Ancel Keys is repeated over and over – the guy has obviously not read his papers and is just mouthing stuff he’s heard 3rd hand. Keys threw out unreliable data and only kept data where records were well founded.
    Everyone is different – for some LDL cholesterol is a very important marker.

      Lots of conflicting information out there for sure. Hopefully you were able to find something of use from the show! – Emily, FBM Team

    Great podcast. I loved your question ‘how does it feel when you’re hungry?’ because as a skinny person I still feel hungry at times (not in the hypoglycemic way though).
    I’m looking to seeing your lipid panel :)

    Best regards,

    Thank you so much for this podcast! I’m in my 40′s & in great health, but every year when I get my mandatory physical for work I always get scolded about my total Cholesterol. This is despite having a very high HDL (good cholesterol) & optimal triglycerides. I eat clean most of the time, work out 4-5 days a week, but the total Cholesterol still haunts me every year! Thank you for some clarity. To others out there, I recommend watching the movie called Fat Head too. :D

    Hi guys!

    Awesome show! Does this device, which Jimmy showed us, measure ketone bodies in the blood and blood sugar at once? What’s the name of the brand or where can I get one of these?

      Not sure to be honest, but I’m sure Jimmy would be happy to answer your questions! Here’s his blog all about his n=1 experiment: http://livinlavidalowcarb.com/blog/n1 – Emily, FBM Team

    Since going to whole foods and higher fat my total cholesterol has gone from 185 to 284, Triglycerides from 72 to 34, and HDL from 51 to 90. This is from reference panels done in both 2008 and 2013. According to the info from the podcast and Jimmy this is good news, let’s hope so lol

    Great info…Thanks Able and Jimmy

    I’ve made the switch to low carb High Protein/High Fat diet about 4 months ago and dropped 25lbs. I was on a statin and stopped when I switched diet. Last May I had a total Cholesterol level of 132, HDL 32, LDL 72. Just had panel redone. and my numbers jumped. Total Cholesterol 199, HDL, 37, LDL 141.
    So I know the numbers jumped because I went off the statin. But, should I be worried that my LDLs doubled?

    What’s your thoughts…..

      Generally it’s the RATIOS that seem to provide the best information. You should definitely check out Jimmy’s book for some in depth info! – Emily, FBM Team
