The Healty Librarian log is awesome, I hadn't seen this article, thanks for posting it. I seem to have hereditary high triglycerides, I have been fighting to keep them under 150, my triglycerides are never as low as 80:
When triglycerides are between 80-100 you start to make abnormal LDL
The article points out that late night eating may be bad for triglycerides. Right now I eat dinner fairly late, and promptly turn into a couch potato. I think I will try an earlier dinner followed by a walk. What the article says makes sense:
''If you ate 500 calories during the day but walked around afterward, your muscles would be competing with your fat cells for the calories and could burn them up as energy for physical activity,'' he said. ''But if you consume it at bedtime, with no physical activity, the body has no choice but to store the calories away as fat.''
After following this WOE my weight is normal. I don't use sugar or sweet drinks. I somewhat limit alcohol and flour products. Fruits don't seem to raise triglycerides for me, but I don't eat more than about 3 servings a day. I have 1-2 oz of nuts a day, mostly raw almonds and walnuts, I think adding nuts has helped keeping my triglycerides lower, but it is hard to be sure.
I will try altering my evening habits for a week and post my results on this thread. Chris
