    I see Dr Mark Porter writing in the Times has decided to restrict his carb intake to try to improve his chloresterol! He has gone lowish carb not low carb.

    Interesting to see he is doing this for six weeks ...

    Mark Porter says " My cholesterol is high, there is heart disease in my family and wholegrain bread has a similar GI score to sugar
    The war on sugar has gone hi-tech this week following the launch of an app that tells shoppers how much is hidden in foods and drinks. The Sugar Smart app, produced by Public Health England (PHE), scans barcodes. It is aimed at parents to help them reduce children’s intake.
    The average British five-year-old consumes their own bodyweight in sugar every year"

    ... Now I have been living the LCHF lifestyle for seven years now ... no complaints.  Smile

    Reducing carbs dependent on the amount should be beneficial for his trigs and as long as he increases that fat that can raise his HDL, as far as LDL goes it could show an initial rise which should come down given time but from what I've  read he's only doing it for six weeks which might not be long enough to see any improvement with his LDL
