... I got my triglycerides down from over 600 (after a week of eating lots of eggs fried in bacon grease sandwiches with mayonnaise; don't ask why I was on THAT kick) to about 300 by eating a standard, healthy diet.

It is not the fat in your diet that impacts triglyderides, but the carbohydrates. What has the biggest impact on triglycerides is dietary carbohydrate, in particular the sugars... (20 replies)

... This was kind of a rude awakening for me but I'm still somehow not surprised. So lets get to the very ugly. Went in to get blood work done for my health insurance at work and needless to say it was bad. I guess a little about me. I don't eat right. I know I don't. I very much have a "meat and potatoes" diet. I also have a desk job where I sit on my *** all day. I don't... (3 replies)

They can be amazingly responsive to "white carbs," i.e. things made with flour, sugar, and in some people white potatoes, white rice, etc. I could not get my triglyceride numbers into the normal range until I...
