30 Bananas a Day!

High cholesterol/High Triglycerides on RT4....totally disgusted ready to give up!!!

I got my blood work done after about 2 years of being RT4 vegan....weight around 150/5'8 

cycle around 6 hrs a week, weight train 3 x a week, roughly 3k calories a day.

Still waiting for results but lost patience and got in home kit for tri's and cholesterol....tested them this morning after fasting and got a reading of 6.6 on cholesterol and a 2.6 on Tri's. Even if the kit is off they are still gonna be high as I doubt its "that" off.

the cholesterol was quit a shocker ....

I didnt even have these issues when eating meat!!! bummed ;(

Im ready to pack it in.....can anyone give me a reason not 2?   :(

What were your numbers before starting RT4? Any coconut oil in your diet? What does a typical day of eating look like for you?

hey thx for replay

typical day would be about 2k calories from dates/bananas/blueberries smoothies

then evening I do either brown rice, corn pasta , brown rice pasta or quinoa with salad, some kinda beans and my maybe a amy's sonoma burger on ezekial bun.....sometimes some oatmeal. But ratios are always in limits.. so almost doubled tri's and added roughly 40 to cholesterol (if the home kit is somewhat accurate)

numbers before rt4 were 100 tri's and 215 cholesterol....

You should talk to your doctor, diet is not the only thing that could increase your cholesterol, stress does too. If your diet has been healthy you should consider a metabolic disorder and eating meat and dairy is not going to help. Have you been keeping your fat intake law?

im sure he will be wanting to talk to me about :) , been reading mcdougall and maybe ill try that out ....he seems to think to much simple sugars get converted to tri's where the complex carbs are the way to go.

yes i stay below 10% fat

I wouldn't be citing anything that Zoe is saying. She's pretty pro-animal foods and anti fruit.
I thought about that too, but the thing is that he didn't have it before so it could be the bars or the sugar. If he doesn't improve after he doesn't consume those bars and sugar, maybe he has genetic hypercholesterolemia.

Hey all

Great news...well not so great but im happy with it :)  moral of the story is home kits dont work!! :D


TRI'S 195 only really isssue.....lower then expected thou

Cholest total 204

ldl 120

hdl 46

- Your complete blood count (CBC) is normal, without signs of infection or anemia.

 - Your blood glucose (sugar) and electrolytes are normal, and your liver and kidney tests are all perfect.

 - Your vitamin D level is within the normal range.

 - Your screening test for diabetes shows that your hemoglobin A1c (a measure of average blood sugar) is in a healthy range.

 - Your urine analysis is normal, without signs of infection, blood, or other abnormalities.

 - Your vitamin B-12 is within a healthy range.

- Your lipid profile (a.k.a. cholesterol test) results are as follows: 

     - Your total cholesterol level is flagged as high, but don't worry--it's fine in the context of your other numbers.

     - Your triglyceride level is slightly above what we recommend. Luckily, this can be improved with some simple lifestyle modifications.

     - Your LDL ("bad cholesterol") level is in safe territory (based on your calculated cardiovascular risk.)

     - Your HDL ("good cholesterol") is at a healthy level. 


Keep going but don't consume sugar and bars :P

Kind regards
