Ivor Cummins and the Cholesterol Conundrum

BJJ Caveman Ivor CumminsIn my quest to learn more about cholesterol especially given my history of developing paradoxically elevated LDL-C, LDL-P, Small LDL-P and Total cholesterol after eating low carb (here are my most recent blood lipids), I’ve scoured the net wide and far, even venturing deep into strange forums and comment threads… and still haven’t come across any clear answers.

Neither of Jimmy Moore’s books, Cholesterol Clarity nor Keto Clarity provided any clear answers.

I’ve explored the possibility of coffee being a potential source of increased LDL through the effect of diterpenes, and the effect of certain Apo-E genotypes causing this sort of paradoxical reaction (even looking into the Framingham Offspring source material itself).… Read More

BJJ Caveman Ketonix Sport Review

Introduction

It’s been almost 8 months since I’ve picked up the Ketonix Sport directly from the Ketonix website, and in the interim it seems like the owner, Michel Lundell, has moved over to the Amazon platform.  Currently there are two versions available on Amazon:

The BJJ Caveman’s Random Reading: February 13, 2015

Random Reading February 13 2015

The Bahai’i Gardens in Haifa, Israel, view from atop the 19 terraces towards the ocean.  This is the headquarters of one of the Bahai’i faith.

  1. Supplements being sold in places like GNC, Target, Walmart, and Walgreens have come under fire for not containing what’s on their label.  DNA tests revealed that only 21% of the supplements examined contained the plants and herbs listed on the label.
  2. Stuff like this really makes product testing services like Labdoor all the more important.  I plan on paying the $150 subscription fee to support them and to learn more about how they rated all the things they review.
