Recently I got blood work done after keto dieting for about 6 weeks to see what type of an effect it had on me. Ive done Body Opus numerous times in the past and its always worked great.
The test results were horrible. High treglycerides, my HDL is almost rock bottom, my homocysteine is high and even my liver AST was high. I’ve always supplemented with Flameout and extra virgin olive oil but it obviously isn’t helping.
Anyone ever test themselves before while on a keto diet or have a clue of what is happening here? I’ve always had good blood work when eating a balanced normal diet. This will probably be my last keto diet. I was thinking of just using the EVOO and the Flameout as my main sources of fat intake and minimizing saturated fats.
You need to fast for 12 hours before you do this kind of blood work. I just had my blood tested and have never seen better results. Triglycerides 37, HDL 103, LDL 106, Total Cholesterol 216, Glucose 78. My diet meat, fish, poultry, raw eggs, green fiberous vegies, seeds and nuts, cottage cheese, whey protein powder.
Do you think eating the fatty breakfast 4 hrs earlier could’ve skewed the results that much. I was under the impression the the purpose fo drawing blood in a fasted state was for the purpose of checking fasting blood glucose.[/quote]
Four hours after a high fat meal, your blood will still have increased levels of fat. I once did a blood test after eating an egg and pancake breakfast. They were the worst results I have ever had.
