I just take a blood test in an accutrend machine and my cholesterol is 279 and triglycerides 263.
I did the test 2 hours after my breakfast, is this too high??? or must take the test before breakfast?
I`m on week 6 of Metabolic Diet, this weekend is my second high carb day (only doing 1 carb day), eating 2300-2800 cal (55-64 fat, 30 -35 prot, less than 20 carb) on weekdays. My weight is 76 Kg
I`m a little worried about the result, should I keep this kind of diet or should I change it?
ItÂ´s a great diet, no hunger and feel energetic.
My english suck, so if I write anything wrong sorry
When I had my cholesterol checked they told me to fast for 8 hours prior to the test. I’m no doctor nor do I know the effects of eating directly prior to the test but I would try getting tested again after fasting properly.
When I was bulking, I was taking in a lot of fish oil and garlic tabs to keep my cholesterol in check and it was still at 290 when I got it checked. My doctor freaked because I was only 20 at the time and said it was way too high. I didn’t freak out though because I knew my diet was temporary and when I finally finished my diet I knew my cholesterol levels would normal out.
You are supposed to fast before taking the test.

Those are some pretty high numbers, so you might want to consider altering your diet in the long term. You are supposed to have fasted before the test, but I have had the test done only hours after eating and my levels were in the good range (sub 200).
