Please consider supporting our newly launched Citizen Science Foundation and its central endeavor, the LMHR Measurement Project. Your contributions are making citizen science a reality – thank you!

  • If you know little to nothing about cholesterol->
    • And you want to learn the basics->
      • You can check out my Simple Guide to Cholesterol series. It’s full of illustrations and is written for laypeople. Enjoy!
      • Likewise, I have this video that goes over the basic markers for cholesterol while on a low carb diet. (Pictured to the right)
    • You can enter your cholesterol numbers into our popular Report tool to check them against many risk calculations at the same time.
  • If you have seen your cholesterol rise considerably on a low-carb high-fat diet (like myself):
    • You may want to first visit the FAQ.
    • I would strongly encourage you to read through this blog and my own journey revealing the Inversion Pattern. Key moments were the Identical Diet experiment and the Extreme Cholesterol Drop experiment that I wrapped around the first presentation of my data for the Ketogains Seminar.

Take. This. Survey.

With this vital survey (5-8m of your time), we’re looking to gather a very large number of entries for our anonymised data pool. We’ll post graphs of the data in future articles and it will allow for strong information on some important decisions ahead.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to the data!

Shooting for #TheCCDoc is About to Begin

Happy New Year!

I dropped a series of tweets this morning that I’ll just repost here to keep it short and sweet…

This will either be a single feature length documentary (90-120m) or a series of topic episodes (40-55m each)

I’ll be interviewing experts across the opinion spectrum. Pro lipid hypothesis, moderate, skeptic, liberal on statins vs conservative, etc.

We’ll explore:

  1. History of cholesterol discovery
  2. The #LowCarb movement and high “diet induced” #LDL
  3. The science and data of risk: intervention, genetic, and observational
  4. The two Triads, atherogenic dyslipidemia and ⬆️LDL+⬆️HDL+⬇️Triglycerides

And of course, we’ll be talking to many “Lean Mass Hyper-responders” (#LMHRs) across the world. Those who have gone low carb and have seen extremely high LDL and HDL, yet very low triglycerides.

Some are cautious, some confident, and some have taken steps to change.

I know many documentaries these days often tell one side of the story. When I say I hope to have experts across the opinion spectrum, I mean it! If you’ve followed my process for a while, you know I’m sincere in this endeavor. Each major position should be represented.

So if you’re a Lipidologist, Cardiologist, or other expert in this field and we’re visiting your city in January or February, please consider reaching out to us here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdFrcQVQPg-XFKfG-Su1qO_BTn8-JQJVR1gCNz2im0zl-4WFA/viewform

(U.S. schedule for March and later coming soon…)

Questions will include:

  • If a #LowCarb diet high in #SaturatedFat increases one’s cholesterol, even if it lowers many of their other heart disease risk factors, should it be avoided?
  • Do people with low #LDL live longer than those with high #LDL?
  • What can genetics tell us about the role of #LDL causality with heart disease? Are there any limitations in this form of science?
  • Do #LDL particles serve any benefit to the human body?
  • Is there any known context where high #LDL associates with low heart disease risk?

I can’t wait to ask these and many other questions on this journey of discovery. What better year to get a new perspective than 2020?

Lastly — I’ll be posting many updates on social media along the way. Use the hashtag #TheCCDoc to ping us.

Wish us good variance! 🙂
