I’m not a Physician, Nutritionist or an Advisor. Velo-Pro is about “what works for me”. For your consideration are Links to Certified Medical Institutions and more.
That Glass of Vegetable- Fruit Juice in every video is far more than a prop. That’s the stuff I live on and other foods are sort of icing on the Cake.
We’ve all been hearing a lot about Cholesterol lately. Many people believe Cholesterol is directly related to Diet and that is partly true.
Lifestyle and Genetic components also play a role. It isn’t that one person has better Genetics than another. We’re simply different so we must learn to live with what we’re equipped with. The CDC has some good news for everyone; https://www.cdc.gov/cholesterol/risk_factors.htm.
We’ve discussed Customizing our intake, personalizing our Diets for our Body Types. I think that’s a good approach. We don’t need to spend money on a Genetic Analysis. Simply looking into the mirror and a look at our family may help. In my case I have a fair-sized Family to ponder upon. The Mayo Clinic discusses Family History and Cholesterol; https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/familial-hypercholesterolemia/symptoms-causes/syc-20353755
There’s a lot of motivation to lower your Bad Cholesterol if you’re Male; https://newsnetwork.mayoclinic.org/discussion/erectile-dysfunction-could-be-early-indicator-of-heart-disease/
The simplest thing we can do is to limit Saturated Fats especially Palm Oil which I’ve discussed. Eliminating Trans Fats all together and never eating Fried Food is an easy and great start. I truthfully will not touch anything if it’s been Fried and I don’t live on cooked foods. The Mayo Clinic has more on ways we can start looking at Processed Foods to eliminate Saturated and Trans Fats; https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/high-blood-cholesterol/in-depth/trans-fat/art-20046114
There’s a proven correlation between Aerobic Training and lower Cholesterol. Cholesterol is produced by the Liver, for those who experience Chronically High Cholesterol exercise may be the best solution. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3906547/ Only a Physician can preform a Blood Analysis, I have a Blood Analysis twice a year, I’m a Senior and it’s Advised. I don’t talk about my HDL, LDL or Triglyceride numbers on Doctor’s Advice but they’re exceptional. Funny, I love Ice Cream! Proof Training works!
My studies show it isn’t Meat that killing consumers but the Sugars and Fats in Processed Foods are. As I’ve mentioned numerous times I eat very little meat but I don’t avoid it. I don’t know how to make Chicken Soup any other way. None of my Doctor’s advocate Vegetarianism but won’t stop Patients, don’t think it comes up much in Spain. The Australian Government likes Fish, I find the Omega 3’s beneficial; https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/health/conditionsandtreatments/cholesterol-healthy-eating-tips
The addition of healthy water soluble fiber such as Oats and Whole Grains has proven beneficial in lowering LDL bad Cholesterol. Harvard Medical has the story; https://www.health.harvard.edu/heart-health/11-foods-that-lower-cholesterol
I’ve discussed Whey Protein several times. (Advanced Nutrition Playlist) It’s a valuable resource for Athletes, Seniors and people wishing to control their Cholesterol; https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/10-health-benefits-of-whey-protein
Of course there’s Exercise and we’ll never stop talking about that. It is a mathematical certainty we’ll have lower bad Cholesterol the more active we are. As with so many things Exercise is a function in Health, how much is relative to capability but that it exists is critical. There’s a reason Athletes of all ages have naturally low cholesterol. The Mayo Clinic explains how we can improve; https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/high-blood-cholesterol/in-depth/reduce-cholesterol/art-20045935
There’s no Medical Application for Alcohol and Cholesterol. Some say moderate drinking is Healthy. I see too much alcohol abuse in Europe, it’s not a Cholesterol solution it’s the “cause”. There’s no “safe” level of Alcohol especially for Regular Drinkers according to; https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/08/180824103018.htm
