Anyone have good results lowering their triglycerides through diet/supps/training? I just had a blood test for life insurance. Every blood marker was perfect and in range (glucose was 67), except triglycerides which was a 238 where 200 was top of the range. My last test was 3 years ago where trigs were 80.
I eat <100g of carbs per day and very rarely eat sugar. Paleo+dairy diet at home and brown bag that food to work. I’m 28yo 235# with a 36" waist roughly 25% fat. Weight training 4-5/week, conditioning 3/week.
Working on losing weight and doing everything “right” (sleep, stress, training, diet etc…). Over the past 6 months probably had fast food or chipotle 2-3 times per month, that’s too often… But I didn’t think it’d kill my numbers that bad.
I know I’m going to die, but I’d like not to die of preventable lifestyle disease early if I don’t have to.
So far the game plan is no fast food, take: fish oil, vit D, Olive oil, psyllium husk. Trigs are supposed to be the easiest to fix. I guess carbs and alcohol can drive it up. Might consider giving up my 3 bourbons a week.
