Cholesterol, metabolic health and heart disease | Dr Alan Flanagan and Danny Lennon
The Proof with Simon Hill
In Episode #231, I sit down with Dr Alan Flanagan and Danny Lennon to examine cholesterol, statins, the ketogenic diet, and longevity. Dr Alan Flanagan and Danny Lennon address whether cholesterol matters if you’re metabolically healthy, why our veins don’t get atherosclerosis, and why our body makes cholesterol if it’s “bad for us”. They also offer advice on dietary adjustments you can make regardless of your dietary pattern, claims by social media “health gurus”, and much more.LDL cholesterol has been making waves on social media in recent years. With some diet camps making bold claims about its relevance and the apparently open-ended nature of the evidence, many folks are no doubt left unsure of how important cholesterol levels really are. In this episode, I’m joined by Danny Lennon and Dr Alan Flanagan to consider the role and importance of LDL cholesterol as we recap what the literature says.Specifically, we discuss: Intro (0:00) Basics of Cardiovascular Health (4:29) ApoB for Predicting Disease (12:18) Heart Disease: Where things go wrong (23:23) What Causes Artery Damage? (38:47) Paul Saladino Claims (50:36) Is low cholesterol a problem? (1:04:07) Future of Gene Editing (1:27:12) Veins vs Arteries (1:32:28) Diet Claims (1:41:08) Healthy Keto Diet (1:54:08) MCT Oil (2:00:02) Healthy Fats (2:03:28) Final Thoughts (2:09:54) Outro (2:19:05) You can find Dr Alan Flanagan on Instagram, and learn more about Alinea Nutrition at https://www.alineanutrition.com/.

There seem to be a lot of conflicting messages regarding whether fat loss improves health (and if so, for whom), whether fat loss is possible to achieve and maintain, and if so, how we might go about it. In this episode Danny Lennon helps to clear up the confusion. Danny is the founder of Sigma Nutrition, an educational platform committed to providing objective, evidence based information on nutrition and health sciences. We discussed: Does weight loss improve physical health? If so, for whom? Does weight loss improve psychological health? Is weight loss possible to achieve? Why is weight loss so challenging to maintain? What is the most helpful way to approach weight loss interventions? Considerations for weighing up risk: What framework can we use to make decisions about if and when to use a weight loss diet?
