Every spring my employer conducts health screenings. We get paid $100 to have our cholesterol, glucose, BP, etc, measured. It's a no-brainer.
I began my low carb regime in September 2012, after last year's screening.
This year my numbers were excellent and a substantial improvement from last year.
Weight is down at least 20 lbs
BMI is 25 (28 last yr)
Waist is 37 inches
BP is 91/64
Nonfasting glucose is 91 (less than 2 hours after a meal)
Total cholesterol is 211 (same as last yr)
TC/HDL ratio is 2.8 (3.7 last yr)
HDL is 75 (57 last yr)
Forgot to fast, so they did not check my LDL or triglycerides, but I have no doubt that my triglycerides were excellent too.
All of this achieved without calorie reduction, without vigorous exercise, without depriving myself of anything except toxic carbs.
Call me committed!
