30 Bananas a Day!

Here is my most recent Lipid Panel (12/15/2011):

Cholesterol (total) = 161 mg/dL
HDL Cholesterol = 42 mg/dL
Cholesterol / HDL Ratio = 3.8
LDL Cholesterol (calculated) = 106 mg/dL
Triglycerides = 65 mg/dL
 
I am not completely satsified. My Cholesterol / HDL Ratio is higher than it once was, and my Triglycerides are now higher than my HDL Cholesterol (it once was the other way around). I eat a great deal of fruit; perhaps I am overdoing it. I get a great deal of exercise as well, and I weigh between 145 and 150.
 
I am most interested in seeing how the values of others here compare. Thanks.

Most recent scores, as of 12/11/2013:

Cholesterol (total) = 164 mg/dL
HDL Cholesterol = 53 mg/dL
Cholesterol / HDL Ratio = 3.1
LDL Cholesterol (calculated) = 100 mg/dL
Triglycerides = 57 mg/dL

My HDL cholesterol has gone up and both my triglycerides and cholesterol /HDL ratio have gone down. This is good.

Most recent scores, as of 12/13/2012:

Cholesterol (total) = 159 mg/dL
HDL Cholesterol = 46 mg/dL
Cholesterol / HDL Ratio = 3.5
LDL Cholesterol (calculated) = 96 mg/dL
Triglycerides = 84 mg/dL

It's not that I am worried that my trigylerides are now too high. It is rather that I am noting that eating so much sweet juicy fruit may have raised them from 34, which they were back in 2007. Everyone should be aware that fruits contain simple sugars and this can raise one's triglycerides.

Although I am not "worried" that my triglyceride level has almost doubled from 34 to 65, I did want to bring this to everyone's attention.

Often the first symptom of elevated triglycerides is heart disease.

I get the impression that many people here have no idea what their triglyceride or cholesterol levels are.

Are you having negative symptoms from eating a lot of sweet juicy fruit? If not, and if the numbers are in the low risk range, I wouldn't worry that you are overdoing it.

Comment by Eliot W. Collins on May 26, 2012 at 6:10am

Back in 2007 before I started eating so much fruit, my scores were:

Cholesterol (total) = 152 mg/dL
HDL Cholesterol = 54 mg/dL
Cholesterol / HDL Ratio = 2.8
LDL Cholesterol (calculated) = 91 mg/dL
Triglycerides = 34 mg/dL

It's not that my trigylerides are now too high (65 mg/dL), but rather that eating so much sweet juicy fruit may have raised them. Everyone should be aware of this. 

Comment by Mark Hovila on May 26, 2012 at 5:50am

Oh, and my total cholesterol/HDL ratio is 2.6.

Comment by Mark Hovila on May 26, 2012 at 5:47am

My numbers from a couple weeks ago:

total cholesterol 116

LDL 57

HDL 44

triglycerides 77

Eliot, why do you think that your triglycerides are too high? Below 150 is considered low risk.

Would everyone please post their Cholesterol (total), HDL Cholesterol, Cholesterol / HDL Ratio, LDL Cholesterol and Triglycerides? Everyone should know their numbers.

I want to see how I am doing compared with everyone else. Thanks.

Get moving man, worked on me;)... you dont have balance body by stufing your self, but by fueling your self and in the long run, balanced by vibrancy active life.

Another option is fasting, hahaha....trust me I tryed it, it works no doubt about that, but in the long run, you find your way to HCRV anyhow and start living and moving and having fun all day long, not going doctor, getting testes, stuffing and waiting for miracles....gods or who gives your the miracle in your self, but you must do for it something, eating is not a medicine, it is a tool. ;)...the worst cases do fast(I though I was worse case and fasted, and healed, but my mind set get confused due to undereating and after I gain all back and nearly damage my health again, I went HCRV and yeah, it really works, slowely but I got a time and now evergy and mood to do it properly with a higher fit level(meaning not a longer, but faster and more effective body).
