The LMHR Infographic Gets a Facelift

In July of 2017 I wrote an article about an emerging phenotype that would become very central to my research. Today I’m updating the infographic to that article, and this time it will feature an actual LMHR (special thanks to April for being our volunteer model!).

The update is also in part to be used for the upcoming presentation I have at Low Carb Houston this Friday. I’ll also be layout out some new announcements I’m quite excited about… stay tuned.

Also of note will be our Blood Testing Drive, which will hopefully yield a lot of excellent data for both the participants and our data pool.

Love that April is the model in this infograph. Very good one for needed information too. Well done as usual Dave.

I do comply with all LMHR markers:

TC:341
LDL: 253
HDL: 80
TRI: 40

Morning Ketones always between .4-.8
Fasting blood glucose: 95-99

But I am not that lean. I am around 22% fat based on my last DEXA. 130 lean mass and 40 pounds fat.

Any comments?

Hi again Edvier! 🙂
I believe we discussed this at Low Carb Houston, but essentially the “lean” part of Lean Mass Hyper-responder is a general trend we see. In other words we haven’t yet seen an obese LMHR, and LMHR tend to be on the leaner side (e.g. not typically overweight). “Fitness” level of bodyfat percentage for men is 17% at the higher side – so you’re really not too far off going by that. The profile ultimately makes the LMHR though, so if you meet the cutoffs, you qualify as one.

What is the range for body fat tp be LMHR and not just hyper responder

Although there’s no bodyfat percentage cutoff, generally Lean Mass Hyper-responders tend to be normal/lean. The cutoffs are entirely centered around the HDL, LDL, and triglycerides though, not how lean they are. The “lean” part is commenting on the pattern that they typically are not overweight/obese (e.g. I’ve never seen an obese LMHR). You may want to ask in the LMHR facebook group and just create a poll if you’re curious though.

I recently had blood work done after being carnivore for about a year. I was surprised to see that my HDL dropped to 69 pushing me out of the lmhr group, but my triglycerides also went down to 45. My LDL is 219 and total is 304. Any thoughts?????

Could you post the actual numbers? Were you fasted 12-14 hours water only when you went to the blood draw?
To note, there’s some normal amount of fluctuation for all the numbers. Especially if there are any changes in how much fat/what you’ve been eating, level of activity, etc.
