Do you vary your Protein source on a daily basis or don't you just give a fuck (about high cholesterol's) and eat meats, eggs and dairy products every day?
"Immigration studies show that this resistance to heart disease is not just something in the Africans’ genes. When people move from low-risk to high-risk areas, their disease rates skyrocket as they adopt the diet and lifestyle habits of their new homes.5 The extraordinarily low rates of heart disease in rural China and Africa have been attributed to the extraordinarily low cholesterol levels among these populations. Though Chinese and African diets are very different, they share commonalities: They are both centered on plant-derived foods, such as grains and vegetables. By eating so much fiber and so little animal fat, their total cholesterol levels averaged under 150 mg/dL,6,7 similar to people who eat contemporary plant-based diets"
I keep variety in my diet on general principle, to make sure I'm getting a wide range of micronutrients.
Beef stew meat
>People in rural China and Africa whose diets consists of plant-derived foods rather than McDonald's have lower rates of heart disease
>Who would've guessed?
Don't forget about lentils. Just as cheap, healthy, and versatile.
>>where this conversation goes
>dietary cholesterol isn't shown to contribute much to blood cholesterol
>most cholesterol comes from synthesis
>thus dietary cholesterol is worthless for increasing testosterone
..or something like that.
IDK, I would agree that dietary cholesterol is beneficial to gains; and apparently so would science.
but it also increases the chance of hearth disease
"A study at Oxford University that tracked nearly 45,000 people over ten years
found that the vegetarians had a 32 per cent lower chance of dying from heart
disease compared to non-vegetarians. This was due largely to their lower blood
pressure and cholesterol levels as well as higher intakes of fruit, vegetables
He said that dietary cholesterol increases the chance of heart disease, and per the logic that there's no evidence of it negatively affecting serum cholesterol ratios, yes -- that claim is unfounded.
Didn't want to start a new thread to ask this so I'm posting it in a diet related thread.
LBM 155 BF% 15 H: 5'11
I lift 3 days a week and run on another 3.
My calories for my running days are currently 2380. (activity factor of 1.5 because of my job)
Roughly a 400cal deficit. I am running for cardiovascular health, not necessarily to lose weight. The treadmill says I burn 300 cals a session.
My macros are roughly 200g P 200g C 80g F
My question is, should I eat an extra 200 cals as to not drop below a 500 cal daily deficit?
I do want to preserve my LBM as much as possible.

L2 logic, nigger.
