Why your blood cholesterol levels are important with Sean Ryan

In Episode 93 I sit back down with Sean Ryan to check in and see how he’s going with his transition to a plant based lifestyle.

We pick up from where we left things in Episode 89, review his pre-transition baseline blood work and then spend the majority of the episode dedicated to the walking through cholesterol and how we can use diet to effect our cholesterol levels. At the end we also touch on meal prep, handling social conversations and a few other questions that Sean had since our last episode together.

Whether you are thinking about transitioning to a plant-based diet, are currently transitioning or already eat a plant-based diet I think you will take something away from both today’s episode and Episode 88.

Nutrikynd Supplement

From time to time I am asked what supplements I take. The only supplement I currently take is the Nutrikynd Essential 3 which combines B12, Omega 3 and Vitamin D.
