so I don’t score very well on your genetics test for doing a ketogenic diet, pppar alpha low, FTO and so on. I like being on a keto diet with the butter coffee etc but feel I am doing by body harm now (working against my genes) is coconut oil a better saturated fat then animal fats with regards to my gene polymorphisms and can some things improve it like fasting, fish oil, cold showers and exercise, I would like to continue doing keto if possible, I want to thank you also Rhonda you are one of the very few people covering this topic, its not talked about much in the keto circles (that I am aware of)

    I have similar questions. I have been on a LCHF ketogenic diet for 9 months. My comprehensive report indicates FTO, PPARG (C,G), APO E2/3. I’ve had two Lipid Panels and one NMR tests. Parsing out the Total, TRG, HDL, LDL (C and P) and keeping up with the latest research in the LCHF field makes it difficult for a normal person (non-scientific person). For someone who is active and exercises regularly and doesn’t fit into the “standard american diet” is it okay to have elevated LDL-C?

    I might be too much to ask but It’d be great if FMF could somehow include this service into the reports.

      I have a similar issue with the genetic report. Saturated fats are bad. The question I have is: what fats do they give these lab rats to come to conclusions. Is it cheese (most probably) or meat or coconut bits (very unlikely). So what is the story about these results about saturated fats, since they come in various species of chain length? I would love to see Rhonda comment on this topic. I used to take coconut oil with my smoothie and feel very little appetite for several hours. My HDL went up by 33%. I heard great things about its impact on brain. Then came the genetic report. So I switched to extra virgin olive oil, but it is not the same. Hmmmm………..
