About This Book

What the HDL Is Wrong With My Numbers?

Are you confused by what your cholesterol levels really say about your health?

Don’t you wish someone could just spell it out in simple, easy-to-understand language and tell you what, if anything, you need to do about your cholesterol? Good news! That’s precisely what Cholesterol Clarity is designed to do. Jimmy Moore, a prominent and highly respected health blogger and podcaster, has teamed up with Dr. Eric Westman, a practicing internist and nutrition researcher, to bring you one of the most unique books you’ll ever read on this subject, featuring exclusive interviews with twenty-nine of the world’s top experts from various fields to give you the complete lowdown on cholesterol. If you’re worried about any confusing medical jargon in this book, don’t be—this critical information is broken down for you to grasp what is really important and what is not.

You won’t find this kind of comprehensive, cutting-edge, expert-driven cholesterol information all in one place anywhere else. Has your doctor told you your total and/or LDL cholesterol is too high and thus requires you to take immediate action to lower it? Has the solution to your “high cholesterol” been to cut down on your saturated fat intake, eat more “healthy” whole grains and vegetable oils, and possibly even take a prescription medication like a statin to lower it to “desirable” levels? If so, then this is the book for you. Learn what the real deal is from some of the leading experts on the subject. Not only will Cholesterol Clarity tell you what your cholesterol tests—LDL, HDL, triglycerides, and other key cholesterol markers—really mean, but it will also arm you with nutritional guidance that will lead you to optimal health. Are you ready to find out what the HDL is wrong with your numbers?

Within the pages of this book you’ll learn invaluable lessons, including:

-Why your LDL-C and total cholesterol numbers may not be as important in determining your health as your doctor may think
-The undeniable negative role that chronic inflammation plays in your health
-Why cholesterol-lowering statin drugs don’t necessarily solve your heart health concerns
-Why your doctor should be testing for LDL particles and particle size when measuring cholesterol
-Why HDL and triglycerides are far more predictive of health concerns than LDL-C and total cholesterol
-Why consuming foods with saturated fat is good for you, and why carbohydrate-based foods can be detrimental to attaining the best cholesterol numbers
-Why a growing number of physicians, researchers, and nutritionists believe treating cholesterol numbers is virtually irrelevant

Jimmy Moore is the man behind the wildly popular online health blog and podcast called “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb.” On January 1, 2004, I was a morbidly obese 410-pound man on a one-way ticket to an early grave who decided to take back control of my own health thanks to the Atkins diet by going on to lose 180 pounds that year coming off of three prescription medications. Although it wasn’t an easy road, I am grateful I found the healthy low-carb lifestyle because it gave me my health and life back again.

As 2005 rolled around and people began to take notice of my very noticeable weight loss, they wanted to know how I did it. After probably telling my Atkins low-carb weight loss success story at least a bazillion times, I finally said I would create a blog to talk about it–and so I did in April 2005. Today, the “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” blog boasts 250,000 monthly readers and counting. In 2006, I became the host of one of the biggest layperson-led nutritional health podcasts on iTunes called “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” featuring interviews with all the top experts in the world of diet, fitness and health. That podcast airs Mondays-Wednesdays has 700+ episodes and continues to attract new listeners in droves. I have two other podcasts–“Ask The Low-Carb Experts” and “Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends”–you might want to check out as well!

These days I am super-passionate about helping empower people just like you to be in charge of your own health decisions and to stop abdicating that role to the so-called health experts who may or may not be giving you good advice. Educate yourself and be the boss of your own body and health. You can find out more about what all is happening with me at LivinLaVidaLowCarb.com. Feel free to e-mail me anytime at livinlowcarbman@charter.net. THANK YOU again for being here and I look forward to getting to know you and helping you become that happy, healthy, and fit person you were always meant to be.
