In Episode 1138 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we welcome in senior software engineer, business developer, and low-carb, high-fat diet self-experimenter Dave Feldman today. With so much uncertainty in the scientific literature about the level of importance we should be giving to blood cholesterol, sadly that leaves patients with doubt about what they should be doing in their diet and lifestyle to mitigate their risk for cardiovascular disease. Even with the major advancements in technology from companies like Liposcience, makers of the NMR Lipoprofile particle size test, the science is still not settled on this topic. That’s why a senior software engineer, business developer, and low-carb, high-fat diet self-experimenter named Dave Feldman decided to take matters into his own hands by conducting a series of experiments eating various amounts of fat and other such factors to see what impact it would play on his lipid panel. The results he has seen doing several dozen NMR Lipoprofile tests has been nothing short of remarkable as you will hear in today’s interview. Dave set up a website for all the world to view his meticulous data (what else would you expect from an engineer?) at CholesterolCode.com.

“As a software engineer, I began seeing a familiar pattern in my cholesterol. To have an 82% reverse correlation between what I’m eating and a certain number in my blood cholesterol is absolutely jaw-dropping to me!” — Dave Feldman

Listen in as Dave and I dive deeply into what Dave refers to as the Dietary Fat Inversion theory, why the more fat he consumed the lower his LDL cholesterol went, how eating more fat leads to higher cholesterol in some hyper-responders, the direct correlation between fat intake and cholesterol levels, his Twin Diet Experiment that is currently underway with another hyper-responder, why he’s not afraid is the stated risks of high cholesterol with heart disease, why the lack of actual damage to blood vessels makes cholesterol levels irrelevant, and Jimmy’s challenge to do a fasting experiment together (that will likely happen in October/November 2016). Dave is a highly intelligent guy who understands this stuff better than most doctors and might be on to one of the biggest breakthroughs in cholesterol we’ve seen in a very long time.
