Jeremy lowered his triglycerides to 161, but how?

Filed under: General Stories — Tags: — admin @ 9:28 am

I just went to the doctor. I am proud to say that my triglycerides are
the lowest they have been in my life. They peaked at 333 many years
ago. I have been keeping them below 200 for a few years. But, on my
last visit they were only 161. How is this possible you ask? I lost 16
pounds between doctor visits by doing lots of lots of long walks. I
walked for three miles a day for a year, and then stepped it up to
eight miles a day average for a few months. Walking is a great way to
lose weight and is very healthy, but takes a long time. Losing weight
helps with controlling triglycerides.

However, the other huge contributing factor to my “tri” loss was
salmon. Sure, wild salmon is better, but it also costs $25 a pound and
I cannot spend money that way. So, I get the sustainable farmed
Atlantic salmon from Whole Foods. They cook it for me. The high
Omega-3 content drives good cholesterol up which helps to reduce bad
cholesterol, and in addition helps to get your triglycerides down low
too. I was having three filet servings (roughly 4 ounces each) a week
for half a year, and having some salmon before that. I went 18 months
between doctor visits, so a lot happened in that time.

Salmon tastes good and has many health benefits. It is high in
protein, low in cholesterol, high in Omega 3, has vitamin D (hard to
get in regular food), B12, and a lot of other vitamins. Tank farmed
salmon is toxic, but net farmed ocean salmon is somewhat healthy. Wild
is the best though because it can swim more freely and eat natural
food sources.
