    The Daily Lipid is part of Cholesterol-And-Health.Com. While my blog deals with all sorts of nutritional and sometimes other health-related topics (genetics, sleep, metabolism, etc), the main purpose of Cholesterol-And-Health.Com is to promote awareness of the helpful roles that cholesterol plays in the body and the importance of cholesterol-rich foods in the diet.

    I'm not engaged in a war against any molecules, in fact. I'm highly critical of refined sugar, white flour, and vegetable oil, but I'm not involved in a war against fructose, gluten, or PUFAs.

    I just do the best job I can, trying to find the truth about these things, trying to explain it in a way that's easy to understand, and trying to be honest with myself and my readers in the process. - Chris Masterjohn, PhD

  • In April 2008 (aged 46) I was around 50lb overweight, was suffering many minor ailments and possibly was pre-diabetic. I had tried many different diets, all ultimately failed miserably, so I decided to conduct my own research into what we should eat to achieve optimal health.

    Firstly I qualified as a diet and nutrition advisor and since have trawled through hundreds of scientific papers, have read dozens of books and spent thousands of hours on the subject of 'what constitutes a healthy diet'. I then based my way of eating and living on the findings of these studies.

    The result is, I lost 56lb and am now around my optimal weight, all my minor and major ailments have disappeared, I have boundless energy, have a contended happy outlook on life and feel fitter now than at any time in my adult life.

    In February 2012 I published a book (based entirely on the scientific literature) that discusses the relationship of cholesterol and saturated fat with heart disease.

    This blog is all about giving you evidence mainly from scientific papers about diet, nutrition and health. You will be able to access information that doctors and dieticians have never heard of. There is a lot of confusing nonsense in the media about diet and health which has led to many diseases such as diabetes, obesity and cancer becoming an epidemic and many others conditions increasing significantly.

    I hope this blog may help you on your quest to health.

    Really, my health philosophy is surprisingly simple. I follow a diet based on an understanding of evolutionary science. I think it’s more important to eat, move, and live according to how humans are designed and not according to society’s artificial developments of the last 100 years. Fortunately, this regimen is not only incredibly healthy, it’s quite simple.

    In a nutshell:
    - fresh, organic, unprocessed food – no junk!
    - daily activity – whether it’s the gym or a walk along the beach, it all counts
    - plenty of quality sleep
    - plenty of water, no soda or sweetened drinks
    - antioxidants galore – the key to limiting stress
    - a good fish-oil supplement
    - lots of essential fats, reckless amounts of vegetables, and clean protein
    - time for fun – don’t take anything too seriously – ethical behavior – because what goes around comes around
    - taking responsibility for yourself and your life – openness to new things and ideas

    My Paleo Journey began in February of 2008 when I had hit rock bottom as far as my health was concerned. After the birth of my third little boy, Rowan, I was overweight and suffered from several minor but annoying health issues from constant painful swelling in my legs to depression. I began to work out at Norcal Strength and Conditioning and after learning about Paleo from Robb Wolf and Nicki Violetti, my paleo journey began! I found it difficult at first to manage my new found path to health, take care of my family, AND try to find time for me, but with a bit of re-prioritizing and an awesome support network, Paleo is no longer a diet for me but a lifestyle. Click here to see my before and after pictures and to read a bit more about my story.

    A few years into my paleo adventures and I continue to be a busy mother of three, to Coby, Jaden and Rowan, wife to my amazing husband John, a trainer for Norcal Strength and Conditioning, and well – still totally human! When I’m not playing with the boys, hanging out with the hubby, or in the gym, I’m usually in the kitchen creating my latest family friendly paleo meal! During my own paleo journey I have learned a lot about how to successfully feed a family paleo and this blog is a chance for me to share with you some of the paleo related tidbits, stories, and advice that only comes from experience.
