Facts Are Facts Part 7.
Day 7 of facts produced from different studies that compares a low fat diet vs a high fat low carb diet for you.
Post is based on a study from Dashti HM, et al.
It shows the beneficial effects of low carb high fat diet in obese diabetic subjects. Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, 2008.
Please note that these results were not from a biased study done in order to promote one diet over another. These Facts Are Facts posts are based on the results of over 20 non biased studies.
Yesterday you looked at blood triglycerides and how they are an important marker of heart health, and describe the amount of fat in your blood.
Today you will learning about HDL and the beneficial effects of low carb high fat diet in obese diabetic subjects.
The rate of coronary heart disease for you is directly related to the serum HDL-cholesterol concentration levels. If you have low HDL levels you carry an increased coronary risk.
HDL is thought to be anti-atherogenic or in other words it helps protect you against abnormal fatty deposits which develop within the walls of your arteries.
This effect may bring about reverse cholesterol transport.
This is a process whereby excess cholesterol in cells and in atherogenic, help protect you against abnormal fatty deposits which develop within the walls of your arteries.
Then these plaques are removed from your blood and transported back to the liver.
Risk for heart attack increases by about 25 percent for every 5 mg/dL reduction in serum HDL-cholesterol below 40 mg/dL in men and 50 mg/dL in women..
Low HDL-cholesterol is a component of the metabolic syndrome that is characterized by obesity, insulin resistance, hypertension and dyslipidemia, which is a disorder of lipoprotein metabolism, including the overproduction or deficiency your body has.
Abnormal fatty deposits may develop within the walls of your arteries by the elevation of the total cholesterol, the “bad” low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and the triglyceride concentrations and a decrease in the “good” high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol concentration in the blood.
HDL cholesterol plays a key role in cholesterol metabolism by helping your body either recycle or get rid of it.
Higher HDL levels are linked to a REDUCED risk of heart disease.
One of the best ways to raise HDL is to increase dietary fat intake on a low-carb high fat diet.
And in answer to that picture post question; “Are Eating Eggs Bad For You If You Have High Cholesterol?”
Here is the short answer. Eggs where the chickens are given access to pasture to eat green plants and insects are perfectly fine and encouraged on a low carb high fat diet.
You don’t get bad cholesterol from eating cholesterol. You would die without cholesterol.
And a low carb high fat diet can cause a huge increase in HDL levels.
If you are interested in a healthy diet that may protect you from having a heart attack, build your on diet based on what you want in a diet.
