Low Carb Cruise 2018 Recap, Weight Gain Data Dump, and the Coming LMHR Speech

[Special note: By now you should’ve listened to Siobhan Huggins debut on Dr Bret Scher’s podcast where she covers a lot of the powerful immunological research regarding cholesterol and LDLs in particular. Where I put lots of focus on the energy model, she puts effort into the research on the “support” side, as I call it. So if you haven’t listened, stop reading this and queue it up — chop, chop!]

The Low Carb Cruise 2018

The trip was definitely a big success with a much networking and information sharing. I was happy with the presentation overall and appreciated that many who approached me afterward appeared to get the bigger fundamentals of what I was looking to communicate.

A lot of fantastic people were on this cruise, including Drs Jonny Bowden, Ted Naiman, Ken Berry, Ann Childers, Andreas Eenfeldt, and Eric Westman.

I have many pictured below including my good friend, Amy Berger.

Weight Gain Data Dump

I have a massive treasure trove of data that I’m getting together from the Weight Gain Experiment. In fact, it’s much more than I have time to analyze right now as I prepare for the next presentation (see below) and the series of experiments immediately following regarding resistance training.

Never fear — I plan to “open source” the data to all of you.

While I intend to do a short video on the key points I made in my presentation last week, I’m excited to read what others may find in the data and gather their analysis as well. Moreover, I’ll likely put up the most interesting and insightful comments into a blog post all its own.

The Coming Speech on Lean Mass Hyper-responders

Needless to say, this has been a long time coming. I’ll be doing a presentation on LMHRs, my opinion on their risks, and how I think they may be (unknowingly) changing the world.

Hi – Dave’s talk on Lean Mass Hyper Responders will be at Ketocon, which is in Texas in June this year. We’re working on making it available in some capacity after the fact, as well, but for sure we’ll keep you all updated on it.

OK… I have watched several of your videos on YouTube… And you said that 100% of the time when you looked at a person’s numbers you coukd tell if they were a lean mass hyper responder… So let me tell you my numbers… total cholesterol 328 HDL 80 triglycerides 52 LDL calculated 238… trust me when I tell you… That I am not a lean mass person… I’m 61 years old, female, five foot two, currently 137 lb… I was 147 when this lab work was done… I think your research on cholesterol is totally fascinating… And I wondered if you had any thoughts on why my numbers would be like this?

When do we see your weight gain experiment cholesterol results? I’m particularly interested in the LDL and Apo(b).

Before I started Keto and was on SAD: 200 total cholesterol (62 was HDL, but didn’t have Trig or LDL on that test)

After 2-3 months of Keto I’ve lost 15 pounds (I’m 38, now 173 pounds at 5’10”), feel great, and decided to get a full on cholesterol test which really alarmed me until i found your research about LMHR:
total cholesterol 355
HDL 90
Trig 35
LDL 254
ApoB 169 mg/dL

While I feel comfortable with above now, the problem is that my wife is worried sick about the overall cholesterol and I am going to see a primary care doctor this week.

I assume the doctor may want me to do another blood test (then may try and prescribe me a Statin if the LDL doesn’t go down) so:
a)I can try the 3 day hack of eating lots of saturated fat the 3 days prior to the blood test.
b)I’m thinking I could subtly go back to a modified SAD diet for the weeks leading up to that blood test (then just sublty go back to Keto/LCHF)
c)do you know a Dr in the SF Bay Area who I can see who is up to date with your type of research on cholesterol that I may be able to go see to check the box with my wife?

Hi! Sorry for the late reply on this…
We’re working on getting all the data together, still, but there will be a post when the data goes public.
You definitely do look like a Lean Mass Hyper-responder, so may be interested in the talk Dave gave at KetoCon last month

As for a doctor in your area, you may be able to reach out to Dr Bret Scher, a cardiologist based out of California. He goes by @bschermd on twitter, so you may be able to ping him there and ask if he’s taking patients. Otherwise there’s also Ken Berry, a GP, who does telemedicine (remote care).

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
