Cholesterol Worries on a Protein Diet

I’ve heard some people get worried about the amount of cholesterol that they consume while on a high protein diet plan.

For me, dropping the carbohydrates has actually lowered my overall cholesterol numbers (even my hdl (the good type) of cholesterol has gone up).

There is increasing evidence that heredity and a diet high in saturated and trans fats has more of an effect on your cholesterol level than cholesterol in your diet.

Don’t listen to me, or anyone else though, make sure you discuss this with your doctor and see what his take is on things, also keep track of your numbers over the course of time.

Weight loss is going to make you healthier across the board, and for me, a high protein diet plan has really helped me get rid of a lot of excess weight. My doctor couldn’t be happier with my progress, and so I’m sticking to things. Again, as with anything you should always seek out the advice of your family doctor, and at least let him/her know what you are doing with your body so that you can find the best course of action for your individual situation.

Also, I don’t advise going crazy eating bacon all day, high fat meats, etc, like some of the low carb fanatics do. I still try to keep my high protein meals healthy. I eat a lot of skinless chicken breast and thighs, greek yogurt, lean cuts of pork loin, and top round beef. I also eat a few eggs a day (which didn’t make my dr happy at first, lol), but I feel much better when I get the good fats from the eggs.

Always, always, do your own research and make sure that you are comfortable with any plan that you look into. Don’t just take the advice of whoever is giving it without doing your own research.

Have a good one guys! Time to check on my pot of chicken breasts boiled in chipotle in adobo sauce broth
