    One word... Coconut oil. Oh, that's two words. :)
    The research, along with my experience (figure and body building clients) prove a very favorable response. :tucool:

    Simple replacement of fats like olive oil, etc. in cooking?

    I know you have tons of facts locked in that brain of yours - can you provide any specifics as to benefit over EVOO?

    From the feedback I've received, coconut oil has shown to have a more favorable impact with lowering levels of triglycerides, HDL, and total cholesterol. This is after making a switch from other type oils, as well. Tastes pretty good, too.


    This week:
    Triglycerides 90
    HDL 41
    Total cholesterol 152

    Interesting info about Coconut oil ... but just wanted to check, you wrote HDL, but did you actually mean LDL?

    Yes, Joe. My mistake. A healthy lifestyle will typically raise HDL. (If there is no family history of cholesterol problems)

    Very interesting info Aram, thank you.

    My family has a history of heart disease/attacks/strokes. (I would assume from the reasoning that most of the men in the family are 250+lbs, smoke, have horrible diets, some were alcoholics) but I'm sure the genes are there for me, and I'm looking for any advantage I can get in reducing my tri's and LDL.

    After performing your workout/diet regimen for 2.5 months last year (not the tightest it could have been) and not working out for 6 months after that, my LDL and tri's had still dropped by 25%.

    Goes to show the doctors who think diet and exercise can't provide a serious enough reduction in cholesterol levels without a statin...

    There's a doctor here in Houston who follows the mindset that a lot of heart attacks/disease is actually attributable to hypothyroidism. He tries to base medical recommendations off of hormone levels, diet, exercise, etc. instead of applying blanket prescriptions of synthetic pills.

    Might give Dr. Hotze a google.....
