I try to keep my total choles
" I’ve experimented with doubling or tripling my cholesterol levels intake for a week or two, strength increases every single time. Every single time I get strength increases from doing that" - Sal "here was one in particular when it took people between 50 to 60, so they were a little bit older, and they broke them up into three groups and it was a low cholesterol, moderate cholesterol, and very high cholesterol intake and they compared them all to each other and the biggest difference was strength and muscle.

In the absence of any of those factors that make cholesterol a cardiovascular risk factor, it’s a good idea to keep your cholesterol elevated.

If you’re eating a high cholesterol diet, processed sugar and vegetable oil, it’s probably worse for you than the person eating the low cholesterol diet because you’ve got more around to be oxidized. You’ve got more around to build these foam-based plaques in the arteries. So, yes, I’m a fan of keeping cholesterol elevated but it did needs to be couched in terms of you also mitigating risk factors.
