Paleo gave me high cholesterol

About, Diet, Health and Beauty, Paleo

Good evening my Paleo warriors!

To my absolute shock, I recently found out that I have high cholesterol. I went in to get a blood test during a regular screening and was floored when the Dr. told me that I needed to change my eating habits immediately to lower my bad LCL (which are the bad fats in your system).

I researched extensively to find that many of the foods that combat poor cholesterol are non-paleo foods such as oatmeal, brown rice, kidney beans, and fiber-filled foods. So, because I am way too young to be taking daily pills and the doctor indicated the condition was purely food-related, I have sadly decided to end my Paleo journey.

I have high hopes that this change will help because during my research I learned that other Pale-eaters ended up with high cholesterol as well and after going off Paleo, they were back to their normal healthy selves.

I am sad to leave this blog, but am doing so with no regrets as it has truly helped me become more health-conscious and nutrition focused. Lastly, since our overall well-being and health is top priority I leave you with a warning to really monitor how you are doing on Paleo. Every person is different so no matter what your eating habits are now or in the future, please take the time to watch out for number one. Until my next blog…

Cheers,

Paleo Princessa

  1. I am so sad to hear that you 1) have high cholesterol and 2) Have to quit paleo & 3) are finished writing this blog. I have thoroughly enjoyed the recipes, pictures of foods and your educating me on foods . Thank you for sharing all these things and I will miss your posts.
