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
