This week’s 2 Keto Dudes: Episode 221


This week it’s episode 221 with published peer-reviewed citizen scientist, Dave Feldman! Dave talks about a recent study he published in a peer-reviewed journal, along with 4 co-authors, that looks at Lean Mass Hyper-Responders (LMHR) - people (usually lean) who see LDL go up significantly when they go on a low-carb diet. Tune in!

Here’s the paper:

One of the figures:

Based on my 6 month after keto readings of 113 trigs and 37 HDL, that is about 3, and I was in the highest BMI. That indicates a possible change (increase) in LDL of about 40. (That has not panned out for me. In fact, my LDL has gone down since that test.)

Nonetheless, what this graph shows is people who initially had better trig/HDL profiles (particularly <1 and <<1) and who were leaner should have higher LDL increases, up to 134 for the leanest with lowest trig/HDL level.
