Dr. Berg discussed the cholesterol spike while doing Ketogenic Diet. Most people that do keto (ketogenic diet) get a lower cholesterol level and a lower LDL but other people have hyper responders to a higher fat diet and basically they are going to have a spike in cholesterol and LDL but it is temporary and not a long term effect.

Two Things Happened When You Do Ketogenic Diet
• Increasing more dietary fats
• More fat released

Cholesterol is made by the body and the body makes at least 3000mg per day. It is a necessary substance to make the outer walls of cell membranes and is also needed to make hormones, bile and vitamin D.

LDL (low density lipoprotein) – It a carrier of cholesterol, vitamin E and triglycerides. The primary function of LDL is carrying energy and nutrients to cells, provides triglycerides and cholesterol for repair.

Remnant cholesterol – taking the total cholesterol and minus the LDL and HDL. It is one of the best predictors of heart disease and way more important than LDL and HDL. If the remnant cholesterol value,
• Less than 17 is optimal
• Between 18 to 23 is okay
• Between 24 to 29 is concerning
• Greater than 30 is problem
