Eating smoking food increases triglycerides - Page 3

post #41 of 49

I am convinced to a great deal the way your BODY REACTS to food is the key. There should never be a general statement like " Eating XXXX will cause your YYYY to go up to dangerous limits! " in everyone. Case in point...Some years ago I was scheduled for a check-up and they wanted to run a fasting blood test for cholesterol, triglycerides an lipids.  I completely forgot about the appointment and had a Ham and Cheese Omlette, side of Bacon, Homefries fried in Butter and Buttered Toast, for breakfast. 2 hours later I went to the Dr. and got tested. The results came back well within the normal numbers across the board. Over the last decade, it don't matter if I fast or not, the numbers come back normal...YMMV.

I told my wife...I quit Smoking, drink only occasionally and stopped fooling around with wild women! I am going to Eat what I Damn well please!!!...JJ:hissyfit:

Nope, I'm looking at the blood work sheet right now.

 

It says triglycerides = 49, with the limit being below 150.

I agree, JJ. Everyone's body processes things differently. There is no standard to rely on. "Several" years ago I had my cholesterol checked at a WalMart where they were doing free checks. The tech took my blood twice because the first was so low she thought it was wrong. After the second time she asked if I was a vegetarian. After telling her no and that I had just had bacon & eggs, she asked if I had ever considered gene donation....True story.

I don't know what I'd do with a wild woman now, but sooner later you just have to put your foot down and say "Enough!!

That's the thing. We are still stuck in the old paradigm. Time and time again it has been shown dietary cholesterol accounts only for 10% of blood cholesterol, yet the first association made by most people is fat in diet = high blood cholesterol. Moreover to this day there is no solid scientific study linking fat to CVD. Everything we were told for decades is based on the Seven countries study by Ancel Keys. Who turns out picked and chose data.

Grandma UTZ are ok but I prefer Hartley's. They are kettle cooked. They are a local chip and are really good. I think you can order them online.
