After having a heart attack in 2016, Greg, 59, from Australia, wanted to understand why, and regain his health.
His doctor and cardiologist told him that the best he could hope for was to stop the progression of his heart disease, but in 15 months on an animal-based keto diet his Coronary Artery Calcium Score (CACS), a measure of heart disease, had been reduced by 40%.
He’s also lost approximately 33 pounds (15 kilos), and dramatically improved his metabolic health.
In this interview, which has been lightly edited for length and clarity, Greg shares his experience with keto.
15か月の動物性食品を主としたケトン食を行い、冠状動脈カルシウムスコア｛Coronary Artery Calcium Score (CACS)｝が40％ほど減少した。
My HDL has increased by 73%, my triglyceride levels have decreased by 50%, my LDL/HDL ratio has decreased by 24%, and my inflammation is way down (with an hs-CRP at 0.3 mg/L).
