A Call To All Lean Mass Hyper-responders

[UPDATE 6-16-18: We’re currently at KetoCon and will return to further update this page with an edited version of the LMHR presentation from this conference next week. For now, feel free to check out the rough cut here.]

For the original article on LMHRs, be sure to read: Are you a Lean Mass Hyper-responder?

This is a question that we at Cholesterol Code are seeking to ask people who may fit a profile called a Lean Mass Hyper-responder and not even know it. A Lean Mass Hyper-responder is someone who fits the following criteria:

  • LDL of 200 mg/dL or higher
  • HDL of 80 mg/dL or higher
  • Triglycerides of 70 mg/dL or lower

This is the template for a Lean Mass Hyper-responder, but the figures may not be exact – LDL or HDL may be a little lower (LDL especially so, seemingly if the person does exercise similar to resistance training), triglycerides may be 75 instead of <70, but the typical profile remains the same.

A Lean Mass Hyper-responder is also characterized by being lean (generally under 20% bodyfat for men and 23% for women), more active (an endurance runner, a gymnast, a resistance trainer, you name it) and they’re powered by fat. The profile reflects their body utilizing fat for energy, and transporting it globally to supply fuel to cells.

This post is a call to all the Lean Mass Hyper-responders out there. Do you suspect you are one? Do you fit the profile? Comment below and let us know, and be sure to check out the article linked at the top (and all the comments!), and our FAQ. We want to hear from you – because Lean Mass Hyper-responders may be leading the way towards thinking differently about cholesterol…. and they may not even know it.
