Re: Unkind labs with keto diet - where to go from here?

Have you gotten your fiber intake up? How many grams a day? It's 44 g/day now, up from 32 g/day just before that scary 2004 LDL-P NMR on July 12. This has been enough to totally end the sleep problems I was having, so hopefully it might be enough to reduce LDL-P. That 44 number includes my 10g of S...

Re: Unkind labs with keto diet - where to go from here?

I only reach 50 grams of fiber via food on days that I eat two meals. Aha, so that day was a 2 meal day; that makes it more doable! And I guess then, to hit 2100 cals with your macros, you would have to eat an additional 50g protein, 65g fat, and 17g carb from food without fiber. When you have 2 me...

Re: Unkind labs with keto diet - where to go from here?

Dan, keep in mind, what works for me; may not work for you. I suspect that I’m taller (5’9”) and weigh more (125 lbs.) You may have to scale my fiber intake to accommodate your slighter frame. I tend to switch it up a lot lately. One spread out meal a day is becoming my norm (4 days a week) with a ...

Re: Unkind labs with keto diet - where to go from here?

Phew! I had some really bad images of you cursing my name :oops:. Yes I do get around 50 g TOTAL of fiber- tons of non-starchy vegs, nuts, seeds. Avocados are a surprisingly good source. Evidence shows that it even lowers LDL-P. Sorry to keep bugging you, but can you tell me about how many fiber gr...

Re: Unkind labs with keto diet - where to go from here?

Kudos on figuring out the skipped thyroid = elevated LDL-P connection, Dan. Make sense as upregulated thyroid activity promotes improved LDL-R activity. My guess is that the SunFiber will also result in improved lipids. One way that it works is by absorbing liquids (including fats) in the gut and i...

Re: Unkind labs with keto diet - where to go from here?

It's interesting looking at the data that a ~8% SFA intake of ~17g/d provides the lowest LDL-P, while an 10-11% SFA intake brings you up to the highest LDL-P at ~20g of SFA. That's the difference of about 1 small can of sardines or a single square of dark chocolate... splitting the difference, the ...

Re: Unkind labs with keto diet - where to go from here?

... I noticed that your SFA intake has slowly risen while your fiber intake has concurrently dropped. It could be that simple. I get around 50 grams of fiber a day from a combo of my vegs and SunFiber, a prebiotic guar gum, recommended by my FMP. I was shocked at the positive effect that it had on ...

Re: Weight gain problems.... Any advice very welcome...

Gemma, I find it hard to stay at a BMI of 20. My "natural" tendency, given what I eat and the amount of exercise I do, is to drift downward. My solution is to just add an ounce of hazelnuts at the end of every meal, even if I might already feel complete. (Hazelnuts chosen because they're l...

Re: Unkind labs with keto diet - where to go from here?

Re your better lab numbers: What was the treatment during that period? Did you also get NMR numbers with the 2nd test sset? The details of my treatment are buried somewhere in that thread, Dan. Too much for me to remember it all. I started with a very complex antimicrobial protocol to heal my gut. ...

Re: Unkind labs with keto diet - where to go from here?

No, I haven't tried the blue-blocking glasses. I use f.lux on my computer and Twilight on my phone. Do you think the glasses are a better solution? I already wear glasses, and glasses over glasses are usually uncomfortable. I use similar programs as well with the blue blocking glasses. I wear conta...
