"This is just my opinion...I advise against trying to change anyone. Be consistent, stick with it for the long term, and reap the rewards for yourself. Those around you will be curious and possibly influenced by your changes. People are so attached…"
"My triglycerides have doubled since I began this diet and my over-all cholesterol is now "high" while it used to be "good." I have been 80-90 percent hcrv for 1 year and 100 percent hcrv for 3.5months. Of course, this concerns me…"

Yes, my TG are definitely higher on this diet than they were eating any other way. But they're still below 150, so I'm not too stressed about them. What are yours now? I'm sure the increase is due to all the fructose we eat, and you're probably right that eating more than you need would tend to really increase them. It makes sense that this is how our bodies deal with too much fructose if we're not using it for fuel.
I know this site promotes eating loads, but I agree that overeating is not healthy. Enough to have energy and not get too skinny, but not too much.
