This should be beneficial to everyone, but especially to us gear users.
according to my research, diets that are restricted in carbohydrates not only lower triglycerides and raise HDL, they increase the size of LDL particles (that is actually a good thing, can anyone explain why this is?).
the increase in size of the LDL particles tends to skew the LDL readings, making them higher (because the readings are based on weight). However, apparently large LDL particles directly correlate with lower levels of triglycerides.
Is there anyone who is very knowledgeable in this field who can confirm/refute this?
can someone post a link to threads that are similar to this one in terms of cholesterol levels?
