    Angry Does fasting cause a high cholesterol reading?

    So, I had blood drawn for my 50 year check up and I have the perfect diet 10 times over for at least 2 years now and I fasted from midnight to 2pm and the DOC said I had very high cholesterol and seriously thinks my diet is awful.

    Breakfast : oatmeal with honey or one egg twice a week or chicken spinach stir fry with avocado oil

    Lunch: multi grain sandwich with tuna or chicken or ham with mayo and spicy mustard and a side of greek
    yogurt

    dinner: Salmon with kale in franks hot sauce or a steak rib eye on the grill with acorn squash and honey

    What were your cholesterol and triglycerides numbers?

    My doctor didn't like my cholesterol numbers. I said to the doctor that, if my cholesterol particle size was not at healthy levels, I would consider either taking statins or reducing the calories in my diet. So she had me take a blood test for cholesterol particle size. The results were excellent, IMHO, and negate the need for cholesterol meds or reduction in calories.

    You might be interested in my post about my cholesterol particle size in 2017, having the title: Cholesterol particle size. The bigger the cell size the better? The link is: https://www.healthboards.com/boards/high-cholesterol/1038989-cholesterol-particle-size-bigger-cell-size-better.html
