New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with You Have Good and Bad LDL (low-density lipoprotein)?
today we’re going to talk about the difference between good and bad LDL now normally someone is taught that LDL is the bad cholesterol but that’s not actually true LDL is divided between two different parts and just so you know LDL stands for a low-density lipoprotein it’s not cholesterol it’s a type of protein that is carrying cholesterol through the body from the liver out to the tissues HDL takes the cholesterol from the tissues and brings it back to the liver so we are so brainwashed to think that LDL is the bad cholesterol but they’re not differentiating the specific types of LDL it does take a special test to get this information but I would highly recommend that you do it I put a link down below for more information so when you go to your doctor you can ask for this specialized test so here’s the two types s d LDL – P this stands for a particle and SD is small dense okay so the LDL is a smaller dense type and this is the type that’s the real bad one that can invade the arteries deep into the tissues and create all sorts of problems this is the one that has the oxidized cholesterol which will increase your risk of getting heart attack by four times this is the type that you normally see with the diabetic because it comes from a high carb diet but especially high amounts of fructose fructose will create more of this more than glucose so also realize that sucrose like table sugar is like half fructose and half glucose so a lot of the sugars contain fructose and this type is called type B just so you could actually differentiate now we get 2 lb LDL / p which is particle right here lb is large buoyant the large fluffy type of LDL okay it’s type A you’re gonna see this when someone does the ketogenic diet because it’s a higher fat diet when you’re doing ketosis when you’re doing in a minute fasting you’re releasing a lot of fat in cholesterol from the fat cells so you need these these LDL carriers to transport cholesterol in different places but this type of LDL is benign it’s not the type that clogs up your arteries or creates damage okay this is the bad one this is the good one I suggest to do your own testing on this and you will see that if your LDL is high it’s going to be over here if you’re doing the healthy version of keto and in a minute fasting if you’re doing carbs you’re gonna probably see more of this right here the other thing to look at is the triglycerides you want them low and you’re normally going to see them low if you’re doing keto and I F which is a good indicator because you’re using triglycerides now for your energy source also you want your HDL higher and you normally see this when you’re doing keto and I F alright so that’s the summary I try to keep it very very simple and I put an additional link down below for more information on this but definitely get it checked and if you’re concerned about it you’re gonna see that if your LDL is high you’re gonna see this one right here you’re gonna see this one as normal or on the low side thanks for watching so if you want more knowledge on how to create a healthy body subscribe now and get daily notifications

Today we’re going to talk about good and bad LDL cholesterol.
People are typically taught that LDL is the bad cholesterol. But that’s not actually true. LDL actually stands for low density lipoprotein. It’s not cholesterol. It’s a type of protein that carries cholesterol through the body from the liver to the tissues. HDL takes the cholesterol from the tissues and brings it back to the liver.
The two types of LDL:
• This is type B.
• This is the bad type.
• The LDL is a smaller dense type.
• It can invade the arteries deep into the tissues and create problems.
• It has oxidized cholesterol that can increase your risk of heart attack by 4x.
• This is the type you normally see with a diabetic because it comes from a high carb diet.
• It also comes from high amounts of fructose. Fructose can create more of this than glucose.
• This is type A.
• This is the good type.
• The LDL is a large buoyant type.
• This is the type you normally see with a keto diet because it’s a high-fat diet.
• When you do ketosis and intermittent fasting, you’re releasing fat and cholesterol from the fat cells. You need these LDL carriers to transport the cholesterol to different places.
The other thing to look at is the triglycerides. You want your triglycerides to be low, and you’ll usually see them low if you’re doing keto and intermittent fasting. You will also want your HDL higher. If you’re on keto, you might see that you’re ibLDL-P is high, but your sdLDL-P is normal or on the low side.
