Vegan To Eating Meat Again Cholesterol Changes

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.

If you are interested in this argument, you might find the film FAT interesting. It’s available on Amazon Prime.

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.

Shawn Baker’s book, The Carnivore Diet, is available at the this link.

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

I’d love to hear what you have to say about what I’ve shared here, or your own experience with changes in your blood related to changes in your diet.  Please share your thoughts below.

Vegan To 1 Week Carnivore Diet Experiment

Ex Vegan Tries Carnivore – Will I Make IT?

Ever thought about eating only Meat and other foods derived from Animals?

Eating only meat was far from me a year ago, as I thought it was unhealthy.  I was also Vegan, which made it practically unimaginable.

If you grew up when I did, you probably learned that eating meat was associated with Heart Disease, Cancer and other diseases.

Now, eating Vegan is on the rise, and a lot of experts are promoting it as the best diet for you and the planet.

So Why Eat A Carnivore Diet?

Thanks to a few people I’ve come to learn about, I’ve went away from a Vegan diet to see if eating more animal based foods could benefit my health.

That’s what’s led me to this experiment. After incorporating some animal foods, I did notice some seemingly good changes.

Recently, I started learning about pretty miraculous changes people going on the carnivore diet were experimenting, and that got me even more curious.

I hope you’ll follow me through this experience to gain some insight about the carnivore diet for yourself.

The 1st day eating carnivore was easy, but different than I expected. I’ll be posting videos for the rest of this week if you’re interested in seeing my full experience.

Days 2 & 3 Eating Carnivore

You saw above how my 1st day of carnivore was and now I’ve shared everything I ate on days 2 & 3 in this carnivore update.  More is coming through the week.

My 5K time was not as good as usual, but it might not be related to eating carnivore as I’ve explained in the video.

I’m definitely getting a lot of my calories from organic milk and cream. I’m not sure if many other carnivores are doing this, so I’ll look into that a little more to see if it’s recommended, and report back what I find as the week goes on.

At this point, I don’t feel like it will be hard to make it through the week, but I think I will be happy to have green smoothies and some of my other favorite foods again when this week is over.

On Day 4 Something happens, so don’t forget to check back and see.

So Days 4 & 5 Of My Carnivore Diet Experience Are Live Below Now!

Was that a little bit too much information?

Days 6 & 7 of the Carnivore Diet Experiment have arrived, and this is my best video about the experience so far.  It might even get you laughing.

I’ve included a wrap up the day after finishing a week of eating only animal foods to sum things up.  I also consume my 1st plant source food since I started eating carnivore in the video.

I hope you enjoyed me sharing this week long carnivore experiment with you.

Is Dr. Gil Carvalho’s Nutritional Advice Sound And Will Dr. Shawn Baker Or Bart Kay Challenge Him?

Will Dr Shawn Baker and Bart Kay Challenge Gil Carvalho’s Nutrition Science?

Vegan Doctor Gil Carvalho Is Preaching Old School Nutritional Advice

He truly reminds me of myself 10 years ago. I’m not saying Gil is wrong, but I would like to see him get fact challenged.

I 1st became aware of Dr. Gil Carvalho only a couple of days ago. The thumbnail of his Youtube video titled “Professional scientist answers nutrition questions” reads “Meat Vegan? Cholesterol Eggs? B12? Iron?”

This intrigued me because it wasn’t long ago I started eating meat and dairy after a very long Vegan and Vegetarian Adventure.

The short story is, he’s preaching typical Vegan Propaganda, and at 1st I thought he wasn’t even Vegan.

Now, I know he’s Vegan, or at least on some level he’s vegan, and I’m thinking his thinking is Biased, based upon that fact.

Things Very Good is about getting to the core of what’s truly healthful and good for us as humans, so I’m calling Dr Gil Carvalho out on his Nutritional Advice.

It’s my hope that people like Shawn Baker and Bart Kay will respond to his advice with some of their own, and show us why they don’t see eye to eye with Dr. Gil Carvalho.

NXT NXTRND Mouth Guard Unboxing and Review

Is The NXTRND Mouth Guard For You?

Today on Things Very Good we are reviewing the NXT NXTRND Mouthguard we are currently using for Jiu Jitsu.

The video below includes unboxing the mouthguards, preparing them for use and our opinion of the NXTRND mouthguards based on our experience using them.

Please check the links below the video if you decide to get one.

If you’d like to try one of these mouth guards out, you can pick one up at THIS LINK for the right price.

Our Conclusion About The NXTRND Mouth Guard

The Good:

  • The instructions are clear and it’s easy to fit your mouthguard.
  • These mouthguards do a good job at protecting your teeth.
  • The price is right – You get 2 in a package.
  • The size worked for my 11 year old son and myself, and I’m 48 years old at the time of making this video.

The Bad:

  • These mouthguards are a little chewy and it’s tempting to clench your teeth on them. They might not last too long.

I’ll update this post when the mouth guard is no longer usable. For now I’m happy with mine because it’s doing what it’s intended to do – protecting my teeth during Jiu Jitsu practice.

The price is right and reviewers have currently given this particular mouthguard an average of more than 4 out of 5 stars.

PG Tips VS Yorkshire Red Black Tea

PG Tips Vs Yorkshire Red Tea Taste Test

Today I’ve got my family together to Taste Test PG Tips & Yorkshire Red Black Teas to let you know what we think is better.  Hopefully this will help you with your decision about which tea to buy.


I first tasted PG Tips at a cousin’s house, and couldn’t believe how good it tasted.  I usually go for organic teas, but PG Tips was the only tea he had that I wanted to try, and the experience turned out to be a nice surprise.

Later I wanted to get some PG Tips for myself, and that inspired me to look for other quality teas that were Specifically Tips.

To keep a long story short, I didn’t find another Tea Tip to try yet, but in the reviews I was reading about PG Tips some people were sharing that they liked Yorkshire Tea.

I decided to try it, taste taste it with my family, and share that experience with you.  Watch the video below to see which tea we thought was better.


Both Yorkshire Red and PG Tips are black teas, packaged in England, that are very popular in the United States.

I’m pretty sure the Yorkshire Red tea is not the tea tips, but I could be wrong about that.

One way or another, I hope you like this video, and it helps you to make a good choice between these two black teas.

On that note, I’m on the lookout for the highest quality teas, and I want to know what you are drinking and like.

I prefer organic teas, but I’m happy to know about any tea you think is super high quality and tastes great.

If you know any other companies that use the tips of the tea plant specifically, please let me know by commenting on this post.

Using the links below to buy your tea helps support Things Very Good.  Thanks for checking them out.

What Makes a Woman Sexy?

I was dating my then boyfriend, husband now, for just a little while, when we were trying diets and different exercise routines regularly.  I was gaining and loosing weight, looked less and more healthy, depending what crazy idea we were experimenting on for the moment.

I was desperately trying to look good and since we have been dating only for a little while, straight out sexy, specifically to my boyfriend.  However I was 23 and would have tried every program and promise for any ok results, just to understand myself better and did I mention that I wanted to look hot?:)))

Luckily I had a revolutionary, simple idea.  It was simple in the way that it was the easiest thing to do with the most rewards.  Trust me when I say, it has instantly changed my life!

What is sexy?  What is sexy to you?  What makes a woman sexy? I have blurted out these questions and was eagerly listening to his answers.  I knew what he will say.  Big breasts, round booty, make up and blonde hair, I probably have fit every sex symbol hotness mark in one, little idea, which I was sure about and worked hard towards to gain every single aspect of.

What he said, simply shocked me!

Now I am sure different guys would have completely different answers to this question.  I am sure that for a lot of guys the size of the breasts matters a lot or the booty, or the hair color or the clothes, ect.  However more videos I have watched on this subject, more guys I have listened to, I was even more amazed.

“Healthy is sexy” said Sye first.  Wow, are you kidding with me?  Than I must be really sexy because I was always about health 🙂  “Femininity, kindness, care, nurturing, listening…those are sexy” he went on about it.

Wow, wow, wow, then why is every guy after the hottest chick?  They are, but not necessarily looking for a relationship…putting it the nicest way 🙂

Then years later he said something about that subject again, he called self control sexy and a woman who doesn’t over indulge.  That was a little more personal, I guess 🙂  But it hit me on the right spot and I have turned his advice to work instantly and I have developed a self control system that rocked my whole world, thanks to that one remark.

So where am I going with this?

Ask questions!  Don’t just assume that you know your men’s deepest secrets and desires.  You love each other, it is safe to pop the question, “what makes a woman sexy?”

Then just wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, then listen and listen more and listen more and he basically will tell you what he does like about you and if you listen even more, he will even tell you what he likes in other women better.  Then if you are  a smart woman, and why wouldn’t you be, you will soak his words up to your heart and not take it personally but as a chance for growth.

Then I would ask more questions to make it sure you fully understand, what the heck he is talking about and I would even go as far as say, “How can I do that?  How can I be like that?  What do you recommend for me?  Then he gets really excited, because he knows that you didn’t misunderstood him and wont be angry at him and he is in the safe zone and he will tell you, voluntarily all of his secrets he ever had.

Now I think this would work with a friend, a mother, father, your kids, with basically anybody who knows you well enough and I go even further, why would this question not work with strangers as well?  Watch some of the whats sexy videos on youtube and I guarantee they will blow your mind.

I told Sye I want to interview him for 5 minutes.  After making this 26 minutes video, I felt like I could talk with him about this subject for another hour!  Then I wanted to talk about man, what makes man sexy?  I so will make another video about that, I have sooo much to say about that :)))

Watch our video, give us a thumbs up and let me know in the comments, what you think makes a woman sexy please! 🙂

Hugs, csilla
