Cholesterol on Keto – Dave Feldman

By Dietdoctor @DietDoctor1

What happens to cholesterol levels on a keto diet? Can weight loss cause increased LDL cholesterol levels? Can resistance training lower LDL cholesterol?

Dave Feldman has carried out a number of extremely ambitious n=1 experiments and measured what happened to his cholesterol profile. In this presentation from the Low Carb Denver 2019 conference, he talks about his experiments and the sometimes surprising results.

This is our #15 published presentation from the Low Carb Denver conference. Find all the earlier ones here.

Transcript of the preview above

Dave Feldman: I hypothesize, when you make your muscles sore they consume LDL particles for repair and growth. You need more cell membranes to make more cells or to repair the ones that already have a problem.

So, I see a lot of studies like this one for example, we're sure not there's a lot of resistance training, if there's a lot of potential for micro terra's and so forth, you happen to see LDL tends to go down, and that's why I decided to structure this experiment.
