Low Carb Diets and Cholesterol Levels – When High Fat Isn’t Bad Dr. Mustafa Ahmed The following article is not intended to be part of the debate concerning cholesterol, or whether a low carb high fat diet such as the Atkins diet is good for long term health, it is simply to review the evidence with respect to the effect of low carb diets on cholesterol. One of the problems with the recommendation to reduce dietary fat is that it is often replaced by carbohydrate. For most people that have a dietary increase in carbohydrate there is associated elevation of triglyceride levels and a decrease in good cholesterol (HDL).

WHAT CLIENTS SAY

I started inshape fitness when David started about four years ago. I have always been very active in sports and love working out. I came back home from college and I found it difficult to get motivated to get any kind of workout schedule going. I started David¿s class and loved it and four years later I am still in love with the program. What other program can you stick with that long without complacency setting in?? I have found the only one, IN SHAPE FITTNESS! Throughout my journey with David, I have gotten married and was in the best shape of my life, got pregnant and was able to continue the program through the whole pregnancy, and now I am 2mos post baby and working on toning back up. David's program fits YOU at your individual fitness level and encourages you to work hard while having fun.
