    I started Atkins because I had very bad blood readings back then, never mind very high BP, I'm now fine on all counts, low cholesterol and nice level BP Yachica.

    Hi Yac,

    The way i look at it is, when eating carbs your body uses their energy before any fat absorbed, therefore, the fat hangs around much longer and cloggs your arteries. BUT, by being in ketosis, your body uses the fat first, so its not hanging around at all!
    In a way, this high fat diet is better for your cholesterol, and just look at Jim for the proof.
