I've been eating HCLF vegan for 8 months and just had blood work done. My triglycerides were above the normal range, 172, vs a year ago at 52 when I was eating meat, higher fat, and fewer carbs. Why do you think that is? I eat more starch based but there was a period where I was eating a lot of dates. Could this be because I'm in the beginning phase where I'm gaining weight and (I'm hoping) plateauing? I don't know if higher TG correlates to weight gain. I'm really hoping that my TG lowers by itself if I stay HCLF because this is the the easiest, most sustainable way for me to eat.
