Went for my 6 month evaluation yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised.

A bit of background: In the last 6 months, I have changed my diet to all plant forms with minimal sugar (some incidental is always there). All my oil is olive or avocado and if I use dairy, it's 2%. The two years prior to December 2021, I had been on strict Keto.
Here at my numbers from yesterday.

Cholesterol 162 mg/dL 3 - 200 mg/dL
Triglycerides 113 mg/dL 0 - 150 mg/dL
HDL 48 mg/dl >=40 mg/dl
LDL Calculated 91 mg/dl

My numbers from December 2021

Cholesterol 226 mg/dL 3 - 200 mg/dL
Triglycerides 358 mg/dL 0 - 150 mg/dL
HDL 59 mg/dl >=40 mg/dl
LDL Calculated 95 mg/dl

I know which one I will be maintaining.

2. Sorry, I had to edit. For some reason the entire post didn't show 1st time.

And yes, I lost 4lbs which was unexpected.

3. If I'm reading this right, your HDL (good cholesterol) went down. This is the

"H-happy" cholesterol ratio and it should be increasing.
