Brandy,
Somewhere (and I'll never be able to find this) but related to Dave Feldman's work on Cholesterol as an energy transport system in this forum: https://forum.lowcarber.org/forumdisplay.php?f=48 When I Fasted about 24 hours before the blood draw, results were my highest LDL-C and total ever. Not horrid by what I know about cholesterol, but out of range. My advice is before the draw, do as directions ask. If it says fast 12-14 hours...do it, or you risk falling out of "Normal Lab Ranges" which means nothing for a low carb eater, but why go through the hassle?

For a really short version of cholesterol, read Uffe's "Cholesterol is our Best Friend" at above link. Longer version Nina Teicholz interview.

Second Edit: Standard Comprehensive blood panel in the US does not include ketones. If yours does, just note you eat low carb. Dr. Westman always questions these "normal lab values" that are based on carb eaters for those of us not. https://www.facebook.com/AdaptYourL...82593915316501/
There may even be differences in your lab ranges which I assume are based on Japanese people eating the typical Japenese diet??

Nice!

Free weight loss resources from IDM
https://www.dietdoctor.com/free-wei...ources-from-idm

Quote:
Happy New Year to everybody! I took a couple of weeks off from the blog to spend with family and friends. I ate more than I should have, and definitely ate many things better left on the table. Now, like everybody else, I’m looking to lose some of those holiday pounds. This happens every year, but luckily I plan for it, and will increase the amount of fasting I do to compensate for those dietary indiscretions. For me, fasting is not particularly difficult, but for those new to fasting or low carb diets, it can be a daunting task.

We’ve developed these resources over the course of the last year, but released them mostly towards the end of 2018, so many of you may not be familiar with them. The most important components for weight loss, in my opinion are to have the proper knowledge, and then be part of a community that encourages you to follow through. In many cases, people don’t understand fasting and even if they do, they are surrounded by people who sabotage their progress. So the most important part of starting on the road to using fasting for weight loss is education and being part of a community that supports you. Luckily, the IDM program has free resources to help you.

12-week introduction to fasting email course
The idea of this course is to provide some basic information about fasting and how it can help with weight loss. You simply sign up on our home page, and you will receive a weekly email that provides some basic education. The topics covered include:

Fasting history
Fasting vs calorie restriction
Physiology
Fasting and weight loss 1
Fasting and weight loss 2
Autophagy
Fasting and muscle loss
Growth hormone
Exercise
Fasting and cholesterol
The #1 rule of fasting
Fasting regimens
This gives a very brief overview of topics and you are then free to explore the rest of our free blog for more related topics on fasting. You simply need an email address to sign up for our free introductory email course on the home page of the IDM program website.


For this reason, the Intensive Dietary Management (IDM) Program, run by myself and Megan Ramos provide a number of educational programs that can help with fasting. There are paid programs but also a number of free programs that I encourage you to take advantage of. In this post, I’ll highlight some free resources that I think can be very useful. You can sign up for both the 12-week introductory fasting program and the fasting community (Facebook) right from the home page of www.IDMprogram.com.

The second important component of weight loss is to find a supportive community. For that, we’ve put together a free Facebook Fasting support group called ‘The Obesity Code Network’ Anybody and everybody is free to join. Facebook is kind of a Wild West sort of place, but our moderators hopefully make it a little more inviting and supporting.

Podcast
Starch structureFinally, check out the new Low Carb MD podcast with Drs. Brian Lenzkes and Tro. This podcast, will feature both myself and Megan on a regular basis to discuss clinical aspects of fasting and practical tips to help you along the way. Megan is scheduled to be on once a week to answer questions about fasting.

IDM Physician’s Network
If you need a physician to oversee, check out our IDM Physician’s Network which lists doctors that support the therapeutic use of fasting.

Best of luck to everybody!

Brandy, here's a link in case it helps:

How to Lower Your Cholesterol Fast in Time for Blood Tests

And it sounds like it might not mess you up in other ways. What a minefield seeking medical help can be.

For instance, I would up getting a medical ID bracelet because I'm gluten free, and doctors of my acquaintance recommended it. When I think of how accidental glutening makes my stomach feel, and multiplying that throughout my body - YIKES! I ordered it the next day. (Lauren's Hope has the prettiest ones, IMHO.)

Another illustration is last week's extreme autoimmune flare crisis. I know from past attempts to get medical help they would only do things that remove symptoms in the short-term, in exchange for bigger problems in the long-term. So I did my own research and decided to go Keto instead. Working so far!

Great resources!! Thank you! And like I mentioned, my glucose and cholesterol has been stellar, but if that were to change, my doctor would freak. 😂

A top trending story on my news feed this morning:

Fasting diets are going mainstream — ahead of the science. Here’s why.
Some people lose weight fasting but many others can’t stick to it.

By Julia Belluz in Vox

Long article, leans heavily on Dr Valter Longo's work, balanced, though conclusion that it works ..if you can stick to it, rather obvious no mention of combining it with very low carb diets to make the "sticking" part easier.

Given that a common claim made for fasting is that it will be easier to stick to, that is sort of a valid caveat, though. Sure, anything works better if you do it than if you don't do it. Using people randomly assigned to Longo's style of fasting isn't really generalizable to other forms of fasting. Especially when they're not being controlled to another restricted style of eating, the control there was people eating whatever they bloody well pleased, and still ten percent dropped out.


Some things are difficult to look at by scientific method. Randomization is a good thing--but how then do you study the effect of self-selection of a plan on individual adherence?

ooohhh... a new book by Dr. Fung and Dr. Salt Fix, Dr. James DiNicolantonio

The Longevity Solution

https://www.amazon.com/Longevity-So...g/dp/1628603798

Quote:
Getting older doesn’t have to mean experiencing more pain and illness, becoming less mobile, or developing disease. Renowned cardiovascular research scientist and doctor of pharmacy Dr. James DiNicolantonio partners with leading physician and bestselling author Dr. Jason Fung to deliver The Longevity Solution, a groundbreaking new book that unlocks the secrets of healthy aging. Using evidence drawn from their years of medical research and clinical practice, Dr. DiNicolantonio and Dr. Fung lay out five simple, easy-to-follow steps you can take now for a longer, fuller, healthier life.

The Longevity Solution explains how to incorporate time-honored wellness traditions while doing away with fads, unnecessary supplements, and unsubstantiated wellness practices. It investigates the dietary habits and other practices of the healthiest, longest-lived humans on the planet, who live in regions known as Blue Zones, as a model for what and how we should eat. It teaches the benefits of intermittent fasting and calorie restriction, which have been shown to slow the aging process, while consuming proper ratios of protein and healthy fats. It also looks at how red wine, tea, and coffee play key roles in optimizing health and why salt is an ally, not an enemy, in the longevity equation.

In this comprehensive guide, Dr. DiNicolantonio and Dr. Fung unveil cutting-edge science in an approachable format that is easy to understand and can be put into practice immediately. Simple dietary changes can help you break the cycle of carbohydrate dependence, kick your metabolism into high gear, and jump-start your longevity genes. The Longevity Solution puts healthy aging back in your control!
