Dave Feldman - 'Cholesterol is a Passenger, Not a Driver'

Dave Feldman explains why your cholesterol may go up when you adopt a low carbohydrate diet, especially after you lose body fat or if you are already a lean, muscular and physically active individual.

Feldman also discusses remnant cholesterol, which some studies have shown to be more strongly linked to cardiovascular disease risk than LDL.  Increased remnant cholesterol is also linked to increased all-cause mortality, whereas increased LDL is not linked to all-cause mortality.
