Today we’re going to talk about good and bad LDL cholesterol.

People are typically taught that LDL is the bad cholesterol. But that’s not actually true. LDL actually stands for low density lipoprotein. It’s not cholesterol. It’s a type of protein that carries cholesterol through the body from the liver to the tissues. HDL takes the cholesterol from the tissues and brings it back to the liver.

The two types of LDL:

• This is type B.
• This is the bad type.
• The LDL is a smaller dense type.
• It can invade the arteries deep into the tissues and create problems.
• It has oxidized cholesterol that can increase your risk of heart attack by 4x.
• This is the type you normally see with a diabetic because it comes from a high carb diet.
• It also comes from high amounts of fructose. Fructose can create more of this than glucose.

• This is type A.
• This is the good type.
• The LDL is a large buoyant type.
• This is the type you normally see with a keto diet because it’s a high-fat diet.
• When you do ketosis and intermittent fasting, you’re releasing fat and cholesterol from the fat cells. You need these LDL carriers to transport the cholesterol to different places.

The other thing to look at is the triglycerides. You want your triglycerides to be low, and you’ll usually see them low if you’re doing keto and intermittent fasting. You will also want your HDL higher. If you’re on keto, you might see that you’re ibLDL-P is high, but your sdLDL-P is normal or on the low side.
