I had my blood work done a few weeks ago. For the past I'd say 1/2 year or so, I was still doing Intermittent Fasting 2x a week. One of my main dietary goals was to see what around 100-125 grams a fat a day would feel like. I honestly have felt pretty good. Good energy for training, my sleep has been solid, I felt my recovery was OK. Joint discomfort was maybe a little above my normal. I wasn't keeping track of calories or protein intake.
I've posted before about some "Fat Shakes" that I was using, (still had lots of protein and carbs) and I've done bulletproof style coffee a few times, but mostly just shakes. Extra avocados, grass fed butter, whole raw milk and coconut oil were some staples.
Total Cholesterol: 250
Chol/HDL ration: 2.9 (they say under 5 is a good number)
CRP (c-reactive protein) 0.1 This is under 1.0 and is low risk for cardiovascular disease.
Homocysteine: 8.4 Another coronary risk marker They say the ideal level is under 8, but normal is 4.5-15.0
Testosterone Total: 840
Sex Hormone Bind Globulin 87 Test states 10-80 is normal. So this was high
Testosterone Free 6.76 1.9-27 is considered normal. I'm reading about how to raise the free levels.
Vitamin D 46 I'd actually like mine in the 55-65 range. So at 8000iu I'm still not getting enough.
I had Zinc RBC and Magnesium RBC and all within normal limits.
I had ordered an Hemoglobin A1C test but there was error so didn't get a reading.
No I'm going after around 175 grams of Protein a day with a caloric count of around 2700 calories. I've added in much more cardio as I'm training for a mountain bike race as well. We'll see how my numbers change.
