Cholesterol On the Ketogenic Diet

Are you interested in eating the ketogenic diet but are concerned about your cholesterol? Did your doctor warn you about cholesterol going up if you eat too many eggs? What is the true cause of heart disease and what does high cholesterol mean?

In this YouTube video Craig discusses all things cholesterol related.

Here are some other great videos to watch on cholesterol
Watch this video by Dave Feldman:
He shows how he manipulates his cholesterol based on how much fat he eats.
If you really want to know your heart disease risk, look at CAC score. Calcium score is a cheap (usually $100) and easy test that measures the plaque buildup in your coronary arteries. The score given correlates to heart disease (and overall death risk) by orders of magnitude better that total cholesterol every does. Total cholesterol is only a couple percent correlation in the statin companies own tests. CAC score of 100 (vs. 0) correlates at 800% increase in death risk!!

  • Sonja Hawbaker says:

    Where can I get one of these tests? Do I have to go through my doctor?

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Most imaging centers do it. Just call around. Usually $100 or even less sometimes.

  • Thanks Maria and Craig!

  • Robbie Shed says:

    Thinks this video was very helpful. I will get the test, and continue to review your videos for more helpful and great information. Thank you again

  • Patricia McNamara says:

    Is high cholesterol ever a problem from a health standpoint? In other words, forget about heart health, can it lead to other health problems? Thanks! Great video!

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      There are cases of a genetic disorder called FH (Familial Hypercholesterolema) where people have very high cholesterol no matter what they do. But otherwise I would just focus on inflammation and other markers.

  • Mel says:

    I have familial hypercholesterolemia. Can I still Keto safely?

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Yes, just use less of the saturated fats and oils (less coconut oil or MCT oil) and use more of the omega-9 type oils (avocado oil, olive oil, etc).

  • Andria says:

    So what if you get the CAC test and your score comes back high…would a keto diet help to lower that score? Can that score actually decrease and what would be the best method for doing so? Thanks!
