Thought I'd make a post that compares my vitals with a year in between since making a lifestyle change to a high protein/high fat/low carb diet. In order to get my health discounts at work, we have to get a health screen to see if we qualify, otherwise I would have no idea of these numbers. November 2012: Weight: 187 Waist: 36 inches Blood pressure: 126/89 HDL: 47 LDL 86 Non fasting blood sugar: 89 November 2013: Weight: 173 Waist: 31 inches Blood pressure: 118/62 HDL: 50 LDL <50 Non fasting blood sugar: 62 I had triglycerides run as well which were improved, but I don't have the data with me. I can update this later. Don't know if these changes are significant enough to matter, but I sure as heck do look and feel a lot better.
