"New Data on Energy, Exercise and Cholesterol" - Dave Feldman
Dave Feldman is a senior software engineer, business developer and entrepreneur. He began a Low Carb, High Fat diet in April 2015 and after experiencing a significant rise in his total cholesterol he committed himself to learning everything he could about cholesterol and the lipid system.
As an engineer, Dave spotted a pattern in the lipid system that’s very similar to distributed objects in networks. Through research and N=1 experimentation he has revealed some very powerful data which he continues to share in this presentation and in further detail on his website www.CholesterolCode.com.
"Interpreting Common Low Carb Lipid Profiles" - Dave Feldman
"It's About Energy, Not Cholesterol" - Dave Feldman
"A Very Brief Review of the Lipid Energy Model & Top Secret" - Dave Feldman
"Low Carb LDL - Passenger or Killer?" - with Dave Feldman
Dave Feldman has done more to call into question the lipid hypothesis of heart disease than practically anyone over the past few decades. His self experimentation and his theories on an energy model for lipids question the foundation of the theory that LDL is "bad" and we should all strive for a low level. He recently had his model "stress tested" on the Peter Attia podcast which for some created more questions than answers.
In this episode, we review his energy model and inversion pattern, and we explore what this means for low carb individuals with elevated LDL levels. Since there are no clear answers, it helps to explore the possibilities so that we can try to make sense of this unique and unstudied area of lipidology.
"Low-Carb and High LDL Hyper-responders: New Evidence" - with Dave Feldman
A new study scientifically defines the group of people whose LDL cholesterol rises dramatically after starting a low-carb diet — so-called lean mass hyper-responders. But what does this mean if you are in this group, and what does it mean for the broader topic of cholesterol?
"Cholesterol and Low-Carb: What's the 'Skinny' on High LDL?" - with Dave Feldman
Does an elevated LDL cholesterol on a low-carb diet confer the same risk as an elevated LDL on a standard American diet? We don’t know the answer for certain. But thanks to Dave Feldman and his colleagues, we may learn the answer sooner rather than later.
"Keto Diet and High LDL Study" - Dave Feldman
Dave Feldman released preliminary data from a lean mass hyper-responder study that investigates elevated LDL while on a keto diet. He presented the baseline data at the Symposium for Metabolic Health in San Diego, and the reaction was notable — both supportive and critical.
The results of the study have the potential to change how we view elevated LDL cholesterol. But for now, we have to be patient for the end results and cautiously take away the lessons we can from the preliminary data.
