Telling The Truth About Cholesterol And Heart Disease

Filed under: Health — @ March 28, 2007

I’ve been thinking a lot about this whole issue of where to find “low-carb friendly” advice about diet, health, and fitness concerns over the past few days. My e-mail box is literally bursting (yes, I know it’s not a word, but I’m using it anyway to make my point) at the seams with question after question from people worried about this and that health indicator on their low-carb diet. Somehow, some way we need to have a place where people can go for answers and I’m open to suggestions.

Some people might say that’s what I do at my blog, but not exactly. Although I am pretty well-versed in most of the basic knowledge and even some secondary data about how and why livin’ la vida low-carb works, I am by no means the all-encompassing low-carb diet expert with an answer for every question that comes my way. With that said, though, if I don’t know something, then I’m happy to tell you and I will then go to the REAL experts and find you an answer you can use.

Two different people e-mailed me this week regarding the neverending confusion and concern over the subject of cholesterol and the ongoing myth that elevated levels of it in your body will lead to the development of heart disease. I brought in a very special guest today to help answer one of the e-mails directly, but let me handle the first questions myself since they are pretty easy.
