You are competing against yourself. How healthy can you get?
What are some of the most important blood panel biomarkers?
Triglycerides: lower is better. The macronutrient that most significantly impacts your triglycerides are carbohydrates / sugar in any form including alcohol. In fact, nothing will raise your triglycerides more dramatically than alcohol.
HDL (good) cholesterol: higher is better. The most significant factor for raising your HDL cholesterol is saturated fat like butter, coconut oil, and whole eggs.
Triglycerides/HDL ratio: the goal is to have your trig/HDL ratio less than 1.0 – lower is better.
According to Dr. Stephen Phinney M.D., PhD., the above 3 factors are one of the best indicators of your risk of heart disease and strokes. All 3 are 100% within our control.
C-Reactive Protein: lower is better. This is one of the most important inflammation biomarkers. Inflammation, as you probably know by now, is the root cause of virtually all degenerative disease such as heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s. Less inflammation is better.
Hemoglobin A1c: lower is better. Hemoglobin A1c is a 3 month rolling average of your glucose (blood sugar) levels. The biggest offenders are carbs and alcohol.
Fasting Insulin: lower is better. Another major inflammation marker. If you recall, insulin is the most powerful fat storing hormone. Whatever spikes insulin makes us fat. Elevated insulin also blocks all fat burning – even if you are exercising. Chronically elevated insulin is the number one cause of inflammation. Ironically, fat does not raise insulin. The keys are moderate amounts of animal protein such as JDD protein or whole eggs. Healthy fat such as Super Omega-3 (6 to 12 capsules per day – get on my Online Store – always take supplements with food and plenty of water), extra virgin olive oil (use generously on your leafy green salads), and saturated fats such as butter, coconut oil, and bacon grease. And keep your carb intake to a big leafy green salad with olive oil and salt or some green non-starchy vegetable such as asparagus or broccoli with lots of butter and salt.
Vitamin D: Higher is better. Over 100 would be great. Essential for a strong healthy immune system. Vitamin D3 is a hormone with a wealth of benefits. Start with 14,000 iu (2 x 7,000 iu capsules – get on my Online Store) every morning with your JDD shake. Do this for 90-100 days. Redo your blood panel. Adjust accordingly.
You will be pleasantly surprised how much you improve your health – how you look and feel as well as your blood panel – in 90 days on a clean Joe Dillon lifestyle.
The path of loving kindness. It all starts with you being loving and kind to you and your body.
Let’s make 2022 your best year yet despite the challenges. You can do it.
