Myth: I can’t do anything to change my cholesterol levels. Fact: You can do many things to improve your cholesterol levels and keep them in a healthy range! Get tested every 4 to 6 years (unless told otherwise by your doctor). Learn more about cholesterol screenings.; Make healthy food choices. Limit foods high in saturated fats.

Nutrients to get less of: Saturated Fat, Sodium, and Added Sugars. Saturated fat, sodium, and added sugars are nutrients listed on the label that may be associated with adverse health effects – and. Saturated Fat: Saturated fat is one part of the total fat in a food. It is thought to be more of a cause of heart disease than cholesterol. For this reason, you should not eat more than 10 to 15 grams of saturated fat per day.

The best foods for your heart are. Most of the fats you eat should be polyunsaturated and monounsaturated. People often consume too much total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, and dietary cholesterol.

Health experts recommend that you keep your intake of unhealthy fats and cholesterol as low as possible as part of a nutritionally balanced diet. Foods containing large amounts of saturated fat include red meat, butter, cheese, and ice cream. Some plant-based fats like coconut oil and palm oil are also rich in saturated fat. When you cut back on foods like red meat and butter, replace them with fish, bean. Whether you are trying to lose weight, lower your LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, or simply want to be more heart healthy, minimizing foods high in saturated fats is a good idea.

While some high-saturated fat foods may already be on your radar (beef, cheese), others, like ice cream and coffee creamer, may surprise you. Although including protein shakes in your diet in moderation isn’t likely to raise your cholesterol, Harvard Health Publishing recommends that you should use caution when making your choice. Many protein powders contain sugar and artificial ingredients whose negative effects can outweigh the benefits of protein shakes. Although foods that are high in sugar, fat or salt often taste really good, they are not good for you.

There is no set recommended dietary allowances for fat, sugars and sodium since these guidelines, which tell you the minimum amount of a nutrient you should consume, are only set for vitamins and minerals that have an established minimum amount necessary for good health. Total cholesterol should remain below 200 mg/dl, unless HDL is high. these liquid vegetable oils are highly saturated fats. Fear of Frying.

And when you steer away from the saturated fat. The American Heart Association recommends reducing the total fat, saturated fat, trans fats and cholesterol in your diet. • Total Fat Fat is a concentrated source of calories because it provides 9 calories per gram. In comparison, protein and carbohydrates provide only 4 calories per gram.

Epidemiological evidence and some experimental studies show that common dietary trans fatty acids raise LDL cholesterol and lower HDLs in healthy adults, so the main nutritional concern is that they may contribute to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (see Section 6.11).

  • Loved it. Roasted nuts (low SFA and high MUFA & high rancid PUFA) WHILST ANIMAL FATS ARE MORE LIKE OURS; HIGH MUFA, SFA, LITTLE PUFA SFA is very stable but most fats are not more than 45% SFA accept for coconut oil. Raw fat can go rancid.

  • now a days scientific reach is trash, saying one thing and after some timed changing or differ, utd unability to research rather then saying sm”new fatcs come in front of us”, its all non scence and ways yo get budget from ppl and government., image change ur statement in court like this every time, u will be in jail for 50 years.

  • What are your thoughts on the Paleolithic ketogenic diet from Paleomedicina? They prescribe a 2:1 radio of animal based fat to protein with organ meats.

  • This is interesting. I used to get those between eye brows as well but I didn’t know it had anything to do with my liver. After I started eating animal fats and meat again my face breaks out less and less. It’s actually nonexistent.
    Tell us, where would you say is the best information about how the face reacts to these bad things?
    I know chin tells you about your gut but what else?

  • They started out ok, reporting “some new study”, then failed to give the details or a reference, and then went on to try to undo its results. Fake news. These people don’t know what they’re talking about. High carb (Grain, Fruit, Cereals and other sugars) is the tried and tested road to CVD and diabetes.

  • Dear Vegetable Police,
    One protip for eating healthy meat is to eat only the meat. Intramuscular animal fat is very unhealthy, so eat only the (definitely cooked) muscle protein. As you cook it, the fat liquefies and you dispose of it, keeping only the meat behind. You feel good from the muscle protein.

  • So how do Eskimos live on whale blubber and have low incidence of heart disease? I think there’s something else in the common American diet that causes disease.

  • By the way people, we would not have evolved such big brains were it not for all the energy in the carbohydrates we were eating. See, I can make stuff up too.

  • Great insights here! Too much fat without some concentrated Lipase enzymes can clog the liver even if unheated. It’s finding that sweet spot. Also a fat is not a fat is not a fat, they all have different properties as u know. I positively do enzymes with any food, no acne in many many years cuz the enzymes keep the fat in my system well broke down and flowing. As healthy as fat can be if it is not broke down it can be clogging/obstructing, enzymes are the remedy. My opinion is that if most people did enzymes there would be FAR les problems from fats in general including heart disease. People generalize and blame fat for all kinds of ill’s but it’s more the way fat is processed as well as how utilized(or not) by the body. Ideal for example with nuts would be raw, sprouted, fermented as well as taken with enzymes and other digestive aids like ginger etc. There are many things we can do for digestion, depends on how much we wanna do with that. The cool thing about animal flesh is that enzyme supps should be plenty. Dairy can be more reactive so fermentation, plus enzymes are good. Enzymes are a religion for me, Enzymes Equate Life. One of the main reasons some people are so adaptable and healthy under all conditions(Like Ozzy and Keith) is that they have superior ass enzymes systems.The good enzymes will make Ur tongue stingy is U leave them in ur mouth for a minute

  • This guy has no idea what he is talking about. If he believes this. I wonder how many meds he is on?
    Shame on you
    Mayo Clinic.��������������

  • PUFAs go rancid straight away in your body. It doesn’t matter if it’s natural fresh seeds or something, when PUFA enters your body it will go rancid. It needs warmth and oxygen. The more you eat of it, the more free radical damage you’ll get. PUFA is seriously toxic shit.

  • Also the carcinogenic properties in bacon is due to the nitrates added by manufacturers, REAL bacon is not carcinogenic as it doesn’t contain these nitrates, its a cured meat check out Food Buskers series on bacon it’s really interesting. Honestly, the cure is local, ethical butchers. Get away from supermarkets.

  • “Fat causes heart disease. Sugar is good for you. Don’t eat butter-use margarine”….. said no one with any brains in 2019. Wake up Mayo clinic… 1976 called, they want their nutrition and food pyramid blueprints back.

  • Replace natural fats with these oils that are grown by the same corporations that are paying us to conduct our studies on how natural fats are bad.

  • Carbs and sugar had my BP at 145/90….my entire adult life! As soon as I quit the sugar and cut my carbs down to less than a 100 grams per day….within 2 weeks I had a BP of 110/70…sometimes 98/65…….LEGIT! Try it….and follow it to the T and see the results for yourself. This while living on bacon, eggs, and steak. We were all lied to….time for change.

  • Here’s my thought on it since you asked for it… you didn’t but here it is:
    The fats are best consumed in their natural state. Plant-based fats are naturally solid and consumed cold, animal fats are NOT naturally solid, their natural state is heated, solid animal fat isn’t natural. That’s why it’s better to heat it to restore it to it’s natural state…..I’m 42% sure this is accurate information.

  • “This new study suggest saturated fats are safe to eat. That is so confusing, so let’s instead just not eat them”

    Very informative, thank you

  • Do you believe that LDL cholesterol is bad for you? If you do then you should be aware of a study in the The Journal of the American Medical Association that shows that the more meat (saturated fat) that you feed test subjects, the more their blood LDL cholesterol rises.

  • weird that my body is 10% saturated fat, if its so dangerous. i have about 0,03% sugar in my body but you recommend i eat my weight in sugar every year.. super weird!

  • Thanks for keeping it real, and sharing your experiences and journey with us! I was in the ‘raw is law’ vegan camp for a long time, and then I started to question my own health journey after seeing some of your videos.

    I have now moved to being a vegetarian, and eat some eggs, and raw goat kefir. I have also followed you to a OMAD diet, and from next week am now moving to a higher fat centred diet. I still can’t ever imagine myself eating meat/fish but I am in a happy place as a vegetarian at the moment. I’m excited about my health journey to come.

    Thanks dude, love your videos!

  • Saturated animal fat and good fats are not the enemy. Our brain is mostly fat. I’m not surprised there is so much dementia we are starving our brains of what it needs to function.

  • Do you think it’s possible that the reason you are doing so well on a carnivore diet is not because it’s healthy, but because you actually enjoy your food now? you clearly were not enjoying the vegan meals. Not looking forward to your meal and forcing something down can make you feel “bad” even afther you ate. So changing that to something that you actually like may cause you to feel way better now even though it’s actually terrible for you

  • Ok to eat, what nonsense. If you want to stay out of the industry, stay away from meat, dairy, oil, fish. Moderately dead is still dead. Go for the touchdown and eat a whole food plant based diet based on starchy staples, vegetables, some fruit. If you have any indication of possible heart disease of compromised blood flow then no nuts no seeds except flax or chia, no caffeine.

  • Shame on you, Mayo Clinic, for your ignorance (or sellout to big food/pharmaceutical companies)! Every patient, friend, family I’ve seen has had dramatic physical and mental health, cognitive improvements by cutting out grains and sugar. When will you admit we’ve been wrong about diet since Ancel Keyes?

  • Go get the book “EAT BACON DON’T JOG”… It’s an easy read and really simplifies it all. Saturated fat is the best thing you can eat. Avoid sugar, grains, and heavy aerobic exercise, which is useless. Exercise doesn’t make you lose weightyour diet does.

  • I have experimented with fats as well. My conclusions are: (1) saturated fats are a bit inflammatory but not horrible; and (2) vegetable oil is bad. I haven’t had any issue with olive oil and avocado oil (omega-3). Based on what other people says, it appears that whether one can handle fats well depends on genetics. I do better on a carb-centric diet.

  • Respected Madam..The information and subjects you have covered are very inspiring and helpful. My Cholesterol doubts are clear and i am planning for a low carb diet. While, i do this i am also suffering from ulcer, stomach ailments and stomach inflammation..Can u kindly advise if u have any suggestions/diets to overcome this?

  • This guy has no idea what he is talking about. If he believes this. I wonder how many meds he is on?

  • According to the Cochrane review of trials reducing saturated fats, cardiac events leading to mortality were reduced when saturated fats were reduced.

  • I made myself a liver smoothie today with 1/2 c. of home made bone broth and the raw chicken liver and heart from my whole chicken. The liver emulsified but the heart didn’t but I ate it anyway. I lived, and no food poisioning!

  • That was so funny with the heated fats part and when you kept getting hit by the waves, cut to a huge one coming in behind you that just made my day lol. Thanks bro

  • @Vegetable police Wow this was eye opening. I have the same problem!!! I didn’t know why but now I know. Coconut oil, olive oil, butter ghee all gave me acne. What are your fat sources now vegetable police!?

  • I prefer to go with evidence and not studies.

    I have a friend who has very low cholesterol and she has type 2 diabetes and is obese and on insulin. She also has a vertibra in her back that has crumbled due to her weight issues. She even agrees that she sees her low cholesterols are not something to be proud of now. She used to be rather smug ( it felt nice to her that at least that was not an issue) and now, she sees the truth.
    It was related to me that someone was told by their medical profession that if they did not stop consuming peanut butter, they were going to land in hospital with a severe heart issue as she had extreme high cholestrols.
    Now, I had done some research before this was related to me, so I was curious. I mean: can’t exactly turn around and dispute something like that, so I asked: what were her symptoms and the response was a bit of surprise. Actually she was very healthy; it was only a routine blood test that caused this to come into focus. I said: you mean she was not in anyway suffering? No, she is as healthy as could be!
    I had heart issues myself and my LDS levels were high and thus told I had to lesson them. My blood was thick and blood pressure high and pain in my heart. So, I set out to lower mine, but I was really “blind” to the reality; just had the information that I was given. The first thing I did, was to drastically reduced refined sugars. I started eating an apple a day ( an apple a day, keeps the dr away….). I started using our exercise bike and after a month, I felt different. I had a blood test done and I saw clearly that my blood was no longer thick and discoloured. When I got to have my heart monitored, they actually laughed at me and said: who said you had heart problems? The pain in my heart stopped and YET, I still have high LDL levels.
    This is not the only video I have watched on these supposed bad cholestrols and they all say the same thing.
    What makes me believe all this evidence, is that most people have high “bad” cholestrols and most people do not have heart disease.

    My husband eats a high fat “diet” and his heart is in great condition.

    Again, I look at evidence.

  • On page 23 there is a fantastic nutrition trick that will tell your body that you’re not starving and keep your metabolic rate sky high. Now, this is going to shock you, yeah there’s a type of actual saturated fat, yeah you know the kind the media tells you is all bad no this saturated fat is healthy and even supports fat burning metabolism.

  • Hmm I’m trying to figure out my current issue. I have acne now, most of my life I was complimented for having nice youthful looking skin.. I’m 30 now and the last year or so I’ve developed teenage pizza face ��

    I also have chronic lower back pain that I’ve had for about 8 years that only went away when I was raw vegan for a month and was barely present on an 80/10/10 style diet with few cooked foods (freely style but less calories).

    I’m thinking my back issue worsened around the time I increase fat and protein in my diet, and when the acne and digestive issues started. Looking into leaky gut as some have suggested.

    Will begin soaking and roasting nuts and seeds before deciding to change my whole diet.

  • You need two glycerol molecules to create a glucose molecule. So two triglycerides, each made up of 3 fatty acids connected to 1 glycerol molecule. So you can create glucose from triglycerides alone, no protein/amino-acid necessary.

  • Wow more bullshit propaganda. Do you honestly think that after Ancel keyes that they didn’t do more research to confirm it? Fucking idiots

  • What’s your opinion on soaked almonds. Here at our place it’s overnight soaked nuts are highly recommended. Also I am trying to have vegetable with animal fat have you tried this combination.

  • But what about the toxins in the lard? Pigs does have really poor metabolism so they must be full of toxins? Just my two sents.:)

  • 8:03 �� yeah man, it’s same in my head, I am struggling to do everything as perfect as possible like vegan, things keep going wrong, and then a guy came from a MacDonald every single day but beautiful��������…

  • If you could pickle raw meats like you’d make corned beef, you’d maybe be able to tolerate it more, just an idea, I’ll link you a reference if you ever wanted to try it Veggie Police.

  • You have a great attitude Vegetable police, amazing to hear someone else talk about there ideas and willing changing with new information.

  • ….. I’ve starting buying the nuts and seeds that are raw, organic, sprouted, salted with sea salt or celtic salt, etc……….. they’re supposed to be easier for you to digest and alot of other good things……. 😉

  • I don’t store bacon grease but I cook enough pieces of bacon every day to cook my eggs in bacon grease. I try not to cook the yolks cause I love the taste of the bread with butter dipped into the yolks. I kind of feel like the bread is the unhealthy part.

  • I think your theory regarding the difference between freshly heated and older heated fats is most likely correct. I’ve made similar observations.

  • I would add an exception, if you are cooking/frying potatoes [and perhaps any other veg, but I can only speak for frying potatoes] in lard, you can re-use the same lard time and time again with NO issues. I have often used the same lard in my chip pan for well over 6 months, heating it at least 30 times to make chips with no issues of it being rancid or smelling nasty. The same can not be said for vegetable/sunflower/rapeseed oils.

  • Pork and lard are inferior, tons of PUFA 6, I cannot fathom why so many eat it, I tried bacon, sugar free and pastured and I was up all night, heartburn and thought I would puke. Pork not good for my body. It is the meat in Thailand though.

  • Its what our ancestors ate..they ate the entire animal kingdom…what they HUNTED…this deck of card thing is ridiculous…you think they stopped at that portion��? They want people sick and weak for big pharma

  • Any videos about diet just leave me more confused than anything rofl… Everyone saying so many contrary things.. I have no idea.. You don’t read/answer comments but im curious what overall opinion do you have now… Do you think the meat diets are healthier better than ur vegan days?

  • Just LOL @ yourself if you get scientific information from this goober in his shorts at a beach instead of reading published experiments in journals.

  • I buy a small block of pancetta (very fatty uncut bacon/cured pork belly) or lardo. Cured pork fat is the best. And I melt down a few slices of the pancetta and put that rendered fat in the fridge in an air tight glass container. Same process with the lardo. I use a teaspoon of the pork fat for making eggs or to add flavor to whatever I’m cooking. Pork fat is the best for cooking. At least it is in Italy. As for beef fat I don’t like it and it will sometimes make me feel nauseous. You are exactly right about mold in roasted nuts or any other precooked foods. I have a severe allergy to mold, and it will make me very sick. So I can tell if something has mold in it after one bite. Typically I only buy clean foods, so it isn’t much of a problem anymore. Btw Kasey, I am assuming you didn’t see the bolt of lightening on the horizon of the ocean as you were getting in haha. Maybe take it as a hint if no one else is in the water.

  • Dude you crack me up! I love vegetables but am on a carnivore diet now and loving it. You look way better as a carnivore than when you were a vegan. Keep Makin vids!

  • notice lard and animals fats are solid thus stable at room temperature and are rendered at low temperatures. Thus much safer. For other reasons, rancid animal fat is probably less bad than rancid plant oils

  • did you know lard has more omega 3 fatty acids than most fish… and is actually good for you… tallow is not for eating but for soap and candles… lard is the soft greasy fat from muscles… tallow is the hard not so greasy fat…. usually found farthest away from muscles… lard is best for cooking with in place of oils like linseed oil or vegetable oils… and will not impart flavour to your food… if you use the hard fat that joins close to the lard type fat it will add flavour to your food… and is best for frying with

  • you can think the carnivore diet is healthy all you like, but saying that saturated fat and cholesterol are healthy is akin to saying the earth is flat, scientically

  • Hey I’m 20 and I get heart rushes from time to time on the vegan high fat diet, also sometimes when I can’t find vegan fat I eat meat

  • Excellent Vid. Congrats on writing the book!!!!!!! Good points about fat being processed, like with Tallow/Lard, there are some good ones out there I’m sure but some are not processed for health and as well sometimes fat is better digested in it’s whole form, just depends. Like Coconut manna/butter for me has always been more digestible than pure coconut oil and like U said pork bellies being better than pure tallow/Lard. No matter how pristine and raw coconut oil may be it’s still not preferable to coconut manna, unless the fiber is a bitch for one perhaps. GHEE on the other hand is another story, in a good way! But as good as Ghee is I still use enzymes galore with it

  • Avoid seed oils like canola, corn and soy oils.
    Eat olive oil, coconut oil, ghee or butter in moderation and don’t be afraid of their saturated fat. (Their role in heart disease has been disproven)
    And try to get some omega 3’s in your diet from sources like Wild salmon, mackerel and sardines, as well as flax seeds and walnuts.

  • here’s a scientific explanation of why certain fats can be worse than others, depending on how you consume them. Saturated fats are the most stable, while PUFA’s are the least stable. This could be why it’s okay to heat saturated fat, and damaging to heat monoand polyunsaturated fats.

  • LOL. All these random people giving out health advice. Thanks, really sweet of you, but I’m going to trust the Mayo Clinic over random youtube comments.

  • Wow. You looked not well at all in your previous diet. Key words here in this whole topic.heated. Lard. Been heated and processed so of course it’s crap.All the store bought healthy diets people teaching everyone are doing just as good as the system that tells everyone what is healthy to eat and not eat.Im eating meat that is three weeks fresh from when it was alive. What do you know, it’s still just as wonderful and better than day one. I’d make a video showing you all how to do this but nobody would even watch it.

  • The only thing about bacon fat “drippings” I do different then some is I keep mine in the fridge. While I have seen & heard others keep it on the shelf,which I think is not good. For the simple reason is there still is small bits of bacon in it. Even if  you strain the bits out, I wouldn’t worry as much … Any how I’m kind of torn on some of the other ideas you mention lol

  • This is how it is to me they thought saturated fat was bad because they see LDL levels go up and it leads to bad things yet now using Lipid-electrophoresis they can separate the Low density lipo protein (LDL) into its separate constituents and see only certain ones oxidize and due to carbohydrates which are all converted into glucose, and in times of insulin resistance free flowing glucose binds to the lipo protein or specifically a protein (apo-b100) that attaches to the lipo protein and tells it where to go and now the molecule is to big or is unrecognized and cant be taken up by the liver so it travels back through our circulation and gets taken up by (macrophage) in a blood vessel so now oxidizes LDL is building up in the blood vessel lmao.

    Learned alot of this from one video and some from school
    Why eating saturated fat wont kill you, but vegetable oil might

    The amount of information i have learned in the past day from one video hahaha

    This is just the cholesterol aspect saturated is also better because its more stable do its structure like the truss of a bridge

    I will learn all this

  • Hey, bro, a looong time ago you told us in your videos that before taking action on your diet you were really depressed. Have you made a video on this?? I’m very interested in knowing why were you so depressed and how did you overcome it, thx mate, greetings from Mexico, peace.

  • Oluve oil, avocaso oil and nuts mainly contain omega 6 fatty acids, and not enough omega 3 acids. This creates an imbalance, which is why these oils shouldn’t be used in excess. Some essential omega 3 chains are only found in fish and other sea organisms. Natural saurated fats are good for your health.

  • Yo Chief, before you go back you should go further south man. Places like Krabi, Koh Lanta or Koh Chang.. This aint paradise man you are missing out…
