My father is 72 years old and weighs abo9ut a buck sixty (skinny) He drinks a lot but is really active walking 18 holes a day playing golf (no carts) He is a vegeterian and does has not eaten meat for about18 years and yet he still has high cholesterol and has to take medication. I was told this is an inherited condition.
I am an active big guy and follow a ketogenic and/or cyclical ketogenic diet year round due to being very sensitive to insulin and type II diabetes running in the family.
Question: Am I screwed? Are people like Atkins right about lowering cholesterol through lowering car intake? He did have a heart problem a while back
Question: Do Protein powders contain anything (i.e., tropical oils) that would be bad for cholesterol?
