Is Eating Meat again after being vegan bad for your health?
Is a rise in cholesterol after quitting vegan a bad sign or could it be good?
Today I’m sharing 3 blood tests from when I was Vegan, and 1 from very recently. The recent blood test from is after I switched to eating animal foods again.
The Vegan tests only show Cholesterol, Triglycerides, and Blood Sugar, but my more recent test shows a much more comprehensive blood panel.
I’m not an expert on reading blood tests, so if you want to chime in with your expertise, please do.
That being said, there’s a big divide between Doctors regarding how to interpret the results of a cholesterol test.
Plant based doctors and some others, will argue that lower cholesterol is always good, but there’s a growing number of Doctors that believe it’s more about Cholesterol ratios, and that higher cholesterol doesn’t always mean health problems are on the horizon.
The evidence regarding the lipid theory is being questioned by groups like the Weston A Price Foundation and many people following Ketogenic and Carnivore Diets.

In the video on this page, you’ll see my actual blood test results, and I give you my opinion, based on what I’ve learned.
On my Dad’s side of the family, a lot of people including my Dad have had heart problems. My Dad had angina, so it’s surprising to me that I’d be eating more cholesterol foods.
The above being stated, I’m not worried about it. I think eating quality foods makes a difference, and I can always eat more plant based for a time to get my cholesterol levels down.
Very recently I did a week long experiment of eating only foods from animals. I became interested in this way of eating as a result of listening to a lot of Ex Vegans, and also a few people that believe eating mostly meat is ideal for humans.
Dr. Shawn Baker, is someone that I respect, and his knowledge and experience really opened me up to eating more animal based foods.

What are your thoughts? Should I be worried about the rise in my cholesterol? Am I headed down the wrong path.
