As of today, I’m declaring Phase I and II of my research complete.
- Phase I spans December 2015 to May 2017 where I was focused primarily on the Inversion Pattern.
- Phase II spans May 2017 to January 2018 where I was focused on Energy Status.
The Capstone Experiment combines both legs of this theory and demonstrates how fluid and agile cholesterol markers are when modifying dietary sources of energy in real time.
Naturally, there are many questions still to answer given how much there is to unpack. But for now, I want to put a white-hot spotlight on the most central and unmistakable observation of this experiment:
Cholesterol is a passenger, not a driver. Its markers are extremely agile and highly influenced by the larger energy metabolism. This runs counter to medical mainstream opinion.
- Certainly, I’d like to put this into a formal study. But the process of organizing these and raising money tends to be slow, which is why I haven’t taken a lot of time pursuing it to this point. I’m an engineer, not an academic, so I’d prefer to find someone who can better navigate those waters to make this happen.
- Falsify this! If you’re reading this and you have alternate theories or a way I can disprove this working theory, please let me know. I can’t emphasize enough that I appreciate contrarian views, so long as they are materially relevant and productive.
- Lastly, I’ll be taking a bit more personal time in the next week to rest and catch up some time with family. Everyone has been very patient and understanding of my work through this point, chief among them being my wife. These experiments take a lot out of me, with this one being the most intensive one yet.
