Ok well lfirst of all, I am female, 23 years old. I just got my bloodwork back from my doctor and my cholesterol is extremely LOW. The total is like 30-something.
I was really surprised because I eat beef every day, as well as two whole eggs everyday, and salmon and walnuts as well. So I am not low-fat, nor low-cholesterol. I also take at least 7 fish oils caps (nordic naturals- high epa/dha).
So what the heck do I do to raise it? I have heard it is associated with anxiety and depression, (which I feel I suffer from).
I am currently trying to put on weight so I am in a caloric surplus already… what should I be doing to remedy this cholesterol “problem”? And please don’t tell me to go eat a bunch of fast food or big macs because I care too much about my health and physique to do something stupid like that.
