Lean Mass Hyper-Responders - Keto and cholesterol with Nick Norwitz PhD

This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Nick Norwitz about ketogenic diets, cholesterol numbers and why we see differences into the cholesterol response between people who are overweight and have metabolic disorder, compared to otherwise healthy, lean individuals.
This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Nick Norwitz about ketogenic diets, cholesterol numbers and why we see differences into the cholesterol response between people who are overweight and have metabolic disorder, compared to otherwise healthy, lean individuals. Nick is a co-author on a couple of papers that investigate this phenomenon, lean mass hyperresponder (LMHR) which notes a massive rise in LDL cholesterol when some individuals go on a ketogenic diet. We discuss what is known, what isn't known in regards to health risk and what to do about it. 

Dr. Nicholas Norwitz obtained his PhD in ketogenic metabolism and neurodegenerative diseases at Oxford University and is now working towards his MD at Harvard Medical School.
