In trying to get into ketosis, I was eating high amounts of saturated fat and coconut oil. However, my recent Cardio IQ showed LDL particle number of 1946, LDL small of 267, and LDL medium of 355. These numbers frankly frightened me! I have cut out the coconut oil completely and cut the animal protein to 2-3 servings per week.
I am almost never in ketosis even though my only carbs are 1/2 cup of berries, 1 small apple, and sometimes 2 cups of beans in a day. I have a sensitivity to nuts and need to eat something for protein. In fact, I have just given up on the ketosis because it doesn't seem to work for me.
