I don't count carbs every day like I used to since I have a pretty good idea of what has carbs and what doesn't, and try to avoid the known sources of carbs. That said, I would think I am well below 50 carbs per day most of the time.
I totally agree re: the relationship between lipids and heart disease.
I've had two calcium scans, one just before I turned 50, and one last year (54).
Both of them were zero.
It was because my numbers didn't look like they should on a low carb diet that the genetic test was ordered.
I think they were exaggerated precisely because I was eating butter at every meal.
Literally. A spoonful or two of KerryGold all by itself at every meal.
Tasted delicious! But, not very good for an Apoe 3/4.
I think I am on the right track now that I understand the Apoe4 implications.
LCHF still, but mono instead of saturated.
I might be crazy, but I drink about a half shot glass of olive oil a couple times a week.
(Fresh olive oil from Queen Creek Olive Mill).
