In this episode Jessica responds to listeners questions about being told that their cholesterol numbers are high while they are on a keto diet and specifically addresses a client who is concerned about their most recent test scores.
How do you know what all those numbers mean and how to talk with your doctor when you feel amazing, but they are telling you that you need to stop eating meat, fat and cholesterol?!
