Hi Guys .Im looking for some diet advice. I keep reading about the benefits of a Paleo diet, but a lot of the fuel/calories seem to come from eating full fat dairy and red meat, bacon, eggs etc. These are all the things I have had to cut out of my diet over the last year due to a diagnosis of Hyperlipidemia, which means i produce far too much cholesterol, and so have to follow a very low fat diet.
Does anyone have any tips as to how i can keep my calorie count up around 2500 a day, to enable me to gain muscle, while maintaining a REALLY low fat diet?
Cutting out saturated fats has had a massive beneficial effect on my cholesterol, reducing my overall from 8.1 to 6.5 and reducing my LDL/HDL ratio from 6.4 to 3.0. I am trying to reduce it further to avoid being prescribed statins, so I really don't want to re-introduce it in any major way. I also don't want to have to eat my own bodyweight in avocadoes every day Thanks in advance.
