LOL, same here. My triglyceride to HDL ratio was 1:2 at my last checkup and I eat upwards of 400 grams of carbs a day.

"This report summarizes the results of that analysis, which indicate that, during 1971--2000, mean energy intake in kcals increased, mean percentage of kcals from carbohydrate increased, and mean percentage of kcals from total fat and saturated fat decreased."
The report clearly states that fat consumption decreased only as a percentage of total calories. Absolute fat intakes (grams/d) actually increased. As I've already said Americans did not replace fats with carbohydrates they added carbohydrates to their existing diet.

It's very simple: HDL is good. VLDL (triglycerides—caused by excessive carbohydrate consumption) are bad.

Keep your ratio of triglycerides to HDL at 3-1 or lower. Not easily done with a typical Western diet. Very easily done with Paleo.

Coincidence? No, it's because "Paleo" is the diet our bodies evolved on.

Re: Saturated Fat .. a new study

Dr. William Castelli, the director of the Framingham study has written in Concerning the Possibility of a Nut... that “In Framingham, Mass., the more saturated fat one ate, the more cholesterol one ate, the more calories one ate, the lower the person’s serum cholesterol... We found that the people who ate the most cholesterol, ate the most saturated fat, ate the most calories, weighed the least, and were the most physically active.”

“Concerning the Possibility of a Nut...” Castelli, W. P. Arch. Int. Med. 1992, 152(7), 1371–1372
