Feldman's video is very informative, thanks for the link, teaser. It makes sense that for a period of time, moving the energy balance to something other than endogenous fat (even carbs/glucose) would result in a better lipid result by doing this just before a blood draw. Long term carbs? Well, I know personally how that turns out.

Edited for clarity.

Thanks for the tip on the new Feldman video. I'll watch it tonight. I'll be having my annual checkup in 2 months. Like last year I plan on eating to energy balance in the week prior to the lab draw. Last year I did that and had cholesterol numbers that made my doctor's head glow with delight. 6 months later I had a cholesterol test done on my own when I was in weight loss mode in the week before the test. My LDL was double what it was 6 months before. I'm debating as to whether should show my doctor those results after I get my expected stellar results back in March. Should I just let her smile and be happy? Or should I try to educate her about he meaninglessness of LDL as a stand alone marker. We'll see what I get in March, but I'm pretty sure that I could make my LDL be as "Good" or as "Bad" as I want it to be.
