I got my blood test results yesterday and my Triglicerides were high at 3.6.
My cholesterol is high (hyperresponder)
Not fussed about my cholesterol, but Triglicerides… my doctor is a lady I had not seen before and she actually knew about Keto. She looked at my bloods and told me I am not doing keto right!! She suggested I was perhaps eating too much protein and not enough fat.
I am sure everyone would agree, this doctor is a keeper!
So I started tracking my food again and was surprised my carbs where 40g and i did not hit my goal of 75% fat. Would this explain my high triglicerides do you think? It also highlights how easy it is to go over if you are not brutal and track everything.
