The Startling Truth About Reducing High Cholesterol


We’ve all heard that consuming less cholesterol can help us manage our cholesterol levels. This is appealing. It makes sense in an intuitive sense. If this were true, however, we wouldn’t see a rise in heart disease. The government has been telling us to reduce our fat and cholesterol intake for the past four decades, but something unexpected has happened. The prevalence of heart disease has increased. It is still the most significant cause of death in the United States today.

So, now what?

Are you prepared to be astounded?

Up your cholesterol intake!

Do I sound weird to you?

The truth is that it’s challenging to alter blood cholesterol levels by increasing cholesterol consumption. Your body naturally produces cholesterol since it is required for so many processes. If you eat more, your body will have less. Less eating means more pay.

Except when there are excess carbs, significantly refined carbs, and sugar are the same. Your body will respond by making an excessive amount of cholesterol.

Why is it the case?

Let’s start with some of the cholesterol’s most crucial functions:

The sex hormones (testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone) rely heavily on this compound. Many foods for thought: Could the meteoric rise in sales of Viagra be linked to the widespread adoption of low-cholesterol diets? Could they be contributing to the rising tide of women experiencing menopausal symptoms? Could they be contributing to the increasing rate of infertility in the country?

* Required for vitamin D production. Many foods for thought: a doctor I met not long ago said he no longer tests for vitamin D. He claimed that everyone is so deficient that he prescribes supplements. Maybe this is related to the prevalence of low-cholesterol diets.

* Low concentrations cause alterations in brain hormones. Low total cholesterol levels are connected with depression, aggressive conduct, and premature death.

Mother’s milk contains an essential ingredient. Consuming adequate fat and cholesterol is critical for a child’s growth and development.

* It has antioxidant properties.

The meaning of the final sentence is crucial. Surgery, as well as dental work, is known to increase cholesterol levels significantly. Why? The reason is cholesterol’s antioxidant properties. It plays a vital role in the inflammatory response, essential for repairing injured tissues.

Inflammation, especially from inflammatory meals, is invariably the direct cause of high cholesterol.

The typical American diet promotes inflammation in the body. Both sugar and refined carbohydrates are harmful to your health. What do you think happens to your body in that case? It’s a safeguard. But it can only keep up this pace for so long.

If you keep putting sugar into your system, your body will store it as fat. Obesity and weight gain occur.

If you constantly overload your system with sugar, your kidneys and liver will fail. Increase in blood sugar. This leads to type II diabetes.

If you keep consuming sugar, you risk damaging your artery lining. Your body will produce a lot of fat and cholesterol to keep you safe. Heart disease progresses.

All of your body’s systems will malfunction more when you consume sugar. It will weaken the immune system, deplete bone mineral content, disrupt the digestive ecosystem, etc. See what I mean?

Am I recommending that you give up sweets forever? In a word, no. Anyone who doesn’t like sweets is lying. Every once in a while, it’s okay to eat something sweet. In low doses, it is safe for your body.

But there’s no denying that our incredible consumption rates require drastic measures to be taken. If current trends continue, one in three American youngsters will develop type II diabetes. That’s terrifying. For the layperson, elevated blood sugar levels are the hallmark of type II diabetes. This is mainly because the average American consumes over 150 pounds of sugar yearly.

There is no doubt that the sugar sector will be scrutinized in the same way that the cigarette industry is now. Smoking’s link to lung cancer may now be shown beyond a reasonable doubt. Although it may be difficult to fathom now, there was once a time when this kind of study was met with skepticism. The truth gradually unfolded.

Sugar is seeing a similar trend. Despite progress, many still attribute health problems to obesity. The blame for cholesterol remains. They place the blame on meat. Eggs, whole milk, and butter are the scapegoats. As the dust settles, however, one obvious culprit remains as our epidemics spread and the low-fat and low-cholesterol approach continues to fail: sugar. Do I have it too easy? Not in my opinion. Stress and chemicals, in particular, contribute to our national health issues. However, in my opinion, sugar ranks first.

Someone left a remark on my last post: “I used to have high cholesterol. Then I gave up white flour, white sugar, and processed foods. The amount of (healthy) meat, eggs, dairy, and fat I consume is substantial and may even be higher than it was previously. Sure enough, the doctor ordered blood tests and saw a dramatic decrease in the patient’s cholesterol levels. The doctor was thinking about suggesting a statin. I’m relieved that I didn’t have to take those awful statins.

Cholesterol production can be lowered by taking statins. However, we have shown that the human body is not an idiot. Cholesterol production is being artificially increased. Do you recall the analogy I made in my last post? Statins delay the arrival of the fire department, which represents cholesterol, to the site of inflammation.


This happens frequently in my experience. Almost usually, when people come to see me, I have to give them a sugar lecture. I reveal its covert guises in commonplace foods like breakfast cereals, fruit juices, refined grains, sweetened yogurt, etc. I admit to them that their consumption is higher than they imagine. That’s how widespread it is. I then demonstrate how to extract it. And when they do, they see improvements across the board, including in their weight, cholesterol levels, energy levels, and other health indicators.

It’s not a complicated problem.

The real issue is how much sugar you consume. In my next post, I’ll share a quick and easy way to determine if your sweet tooth is out of control. After that, I’ll share some crucial advice for reducing sugar intake.
