Siobhan Launches Her Patreon

Yes, our own Siobhan has finally launched a Patreon after months and months of our prodding her to do so. This is super important as she (like me) puts out a lot of cheddar for lab tests. If you appreciate the excellent data she’s brought us (particularly lately), please note it costs a very large amount with each experiment.

Dropping the Bomb in Houston Texas

Yes, I revealed seven days of my half of the Tandem Drop Experiment to a live audience. I’ll have a write up on it soon.

For now, you can watch the presentation yourself here:

When You Have One Twin Who is Keto, One Twin Who is Not

Just watch…

Siobhan on CarnivoreCast

Siobhan had a recent appearance on CarnivoreCast, a podcast centering around the science, and people, behind carnivorous diets. For those of you who don’t know, Siobhan has been eating carnivorously for over a year now, so if you’d like to hear more about her experiences (as well as other topics covered – including lipid metabolism, of course) you can listen to it here.

Final Stretch

I’ve nearly completed my long winding journey. I have just one jaunt this weekend to San Francisco for Low Carb USA and then on to Seattle to record a podcast before coming back home again to the Mrs. Then I’m staying put until Thanksgiving!

Impressive LDL drop. Do you also present results for LDL-p, since apparently LDL-C is now passe and LDL-p is the “critical” marker?

I don’t believe it was in the presentation, but he did get it tested and it dropped as well – although he doesn’t have day to day data since the cardiochek can’t do that. I’ll ping him and see if I can get the numbers – although it should be in the write-up he’ll be doing for his side of the experiment as well.

Hi Dave. In the video on the identical twins you mentioned seeing increased Lp-PLA2 activity in those on LCHF diets. Can you please elaborate? Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. Interesting. I suspect you believe that, in the context of a LCHF diet and good TGs and HDL, it isn’t an indicator of higher risk of CVD?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
