    Great read Mike, thanks. I never knew this:

    And while total cholesterol typically decreases when fat intake is lowered, the decrease occurs in both the good (HDL) and bad (LDL) subfractions so overall health risk may not be improved.

    Thanks, I was looking for a good, concise, and informative summary like this to show my friend. He thinks I'm going to die from my high fat intake, and copious amounts of dead animal flesh. Nevertheless, he is a weakling.

    Lyle Mcdonald is really good at taking a concept and making it really easy for laymen to understand. I've referenced him on several occasions to friends.
