I just got the results back from a life insurance health exam. They did blood tests for cholesterol, glucose, etc.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/partytime.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="partytime"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><br>
My numbers rock! So, nanny nanny boo boo :nana: to the people(in real life) who laugh at all that raw milk, cream, butter, bacon grease, lard and red meat in my diet. I'm gonna keep on eating raw ice cream on my oatmeal for breakfast and using gobs of butter on my veggies.<br>
Anyone care to join me? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Yes, that's my experience too! My cholesterol went down 27 points and my good cholestero increased. Yay saturated fats! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Unfortunately the opposite thing happened to my DH's cholesterol. His LDL went way up and HDL went way down! But he's otherwise obviously much healthier. It wouldn't worry me if it weren't for the fact that we have to buy a bunch more life insurance this year and his numbers put him in a bad category <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

My DH has gotten thinner, healthier and more fit. I wonder how his actual numbers have changed?<br>
