Oh this is great to hear man. Luckily the body improves health wise much faster than people realize, once u start giving it what it needs/ wants, and stop giving things that mess with it. For example, my triglycerides were consistently around 100 on multiple occasions when I would get labs done, but like 1 to 1.5 weeks prior to my most recent set of labs I cut out all the raw organic honey I was consuming, and my triglycerides dropped down to around 33, simply from that adjustment. And I assume 1 to 1.5 weeks prior, while still consuming all that honey, my triglycerides were around the 100 mark, as my diet at that point was identical to when i would test my triglycerides and it would in fact come back around 100. So just pointing out that the body adjusts extremely quickly, when u start doing the right things. Of course certain conditions can take longer than others to resolve themselves, but the body is an amazing machine, and can heal and recover from things much faster than people think. Again, when u give it 100% what it wants and needs, and aren’t still consistently insulting it with things that mess with it.Thank you. I am on the path to taking back my health which I have neglected. I was always very strict low carb diet, 4 days a week of very intensive weight training in my 20's to mid 30's then I started eating the carbs again and eventually switched to powerlifting and then started back on deserts in my 40's and didn't make the time to train enough. Getting back on track now. Working out 5 days a week and moving back to a low carb diet. Going to take 12 months to get back to where I really need to be.
Just an fyi, the increase in triglycerides from the honey was due to the fructose. I had been watching a ton of YouTube vids about how horrible excess fructose is for the body. Never realized that excess fructose could be so damaging. I knew it would lower my triglycerides, based on all my research up until that point, but I was pleasantly surprised at how low they dropped from that one change. For reference, I was consuming 30g of honey with breakfast, 40g with lunch, and 40g with dinner. Almost 90g of carbs a day just from honey. Just way too much quick digesting fructose
