Having a Health IQ is important. A great way to start building it up is to keep track of your cholesterol numbers. This can seem like a daunting task, so today I talk all about cholesterol: what it is, why it matters, how to keep track of it and how to leverage lifestyle changes to keep it at healthy levels thereby reducing your risk of chronic illnesses.
In this episode, I talk about the different types of cholesterol, and I explain why some are good and some aren’t. I talk about what your numbers should look like in each category, and I talk about how to improve these numbers when they’re not where they should be. I talk about the different ways you can help and hurt your cholesterol numbers, and I go into specific diet changes you can make to improve these levels or keep them healthy.
“I call exercise the greatest pill of all.”
