I've always enjoyed your posts. Just wondered if your lower fat diet showed any change in your cholesterol numbers ?

Sure. It lowered my LDL by about 70 points. (I knew that it would--within months after adding cheese to my diet back in spring, 2008, my LDL had increased by even more than that.)

Before the experiment (January 12, 2015):

•TOTAL CHOLESTEROL: 352
•HDL: 70
•LDL (CALCULATED): 270
•TRIGLYCERIDE: 61
•CHOLESTEROL, NON-HDL: 282


After three months (April 21, 2015):

•TOTAL CHOLESTEROL: 282
•HDL: 65
•LDL (CALCULATED): 203
•TRIGLYCERIDE: 68
•CHOLESTEROL, NON-HDL: 217


After six months (July 29, 2015):

•TOTAL CHOLESTEROL: 277
•HDL: 65
•LDL: 199
•TRIGLYCERIDE: 85
•CHOLESTEROL, NON-HDL: 212

I haven't had a lipid panel for a year, now. Waiting for my PCP to tell me she wants one.

Thanks. I know it's anecdotal but it is helpful to know what changes people have made and how it affected them. After I had been LCHF for about 6 months I had heard how so many had super cholesterol numbers and decided to quit taking a Statin. My numbers for cholesterol and triglycerides skyrocketed. I decided to stick it out for a while and saw gradual improvement and after about two years my cholesterol numbers are not bad at all. I guess my body just is slow to change.
