Had a physical today and went over my blood test results.
All the problems I had last year – especially cholesterol – solved. All of my numbers are perfectly in range. No signs of insulin resistance or fatty liver.
No statins (they’re seriously controversial and may even do harm…), no drugs or meds. Some supplements & lifestyle changes.
- Cut back on diet soda from 1 liter/day to about 1 small bottle a week
- Added Omega 3 + Coq10 supplementation, and Berberine
… and I didn’t do any long fasts (or even regular fasting) for 3 weeks leading up to my blood tests. Fasting can raise cholesterol – who know? My previous physician simply tried to put me on a statin with NO DISCUSSION of lifestyle or other factors that could play into the test results.
I fired that doctor.
Then I fixed me.
I am no longer at risk of cardiovascular disease. I am not a likely heart attack candidate.
All of the hard work, fasting, lifting, rowing, restrictions – they all paid off. I’m healthy, I like how I look in the mirror, I like that I can move. I found sustainable practices that will keep me healthy for decades.
I’m feeling incredibly proud of myself today.
