Over the last couple of weeks, I've been dealing with chest pains, loss of appetite, and light headed-ness. All of the tests showed no problem, however while talking with the cardiologist during a stress test, I mentioned to him that my HDL/LDL cholesterol numbers were lower than normal, and triglycerides were high. He explained that HDL-cholesterol was good while LDL-cholesterol was bad. He also stated that triglycerides are the chemical form of fat. He then went on to say that, in some people, staying away from refined sugars is not enough. He recommended that I limit my carbohydrate intake to 20g or less a day. He has a similar problem with numbers and it worked for him. So.....my journey begins.
