“I’ve lost weight whilst gaining strength, stamina and resilience thanks to intelligently customised training by Jason. The more I’ve trained with JDP Fitness, the more I’ve enjoyed it!
I had had my blood tested exactly one day before my first ever training session with JDP Fitness back in February so I could track the change 😉.
In February, my “total cholesterol to HDL” ratio was a whopping 7.5 whereas now it is 4.89.
NHS generally recommends that ratio should be below 4, and preferably below 3.5 to be healthy.
My total cholesterol level (Good plus bad) is now 4.5 mmol/L. NHS guidelines say it should be “5 mmol/L or less for heathy adults or 4 mmol/L or less for those at high risk”. I have a history of heart disease and diabetes in my family, so I should aim for 4. But it’s the first time in years I have been below 5 actually.
Also, my liver enzyme ALT levels were tested in February and came to 58 (units per litre). The doctor said it probably was resulting from too much fat stored in the liver (steatosis).
Now that I’ve lost weight (which will have reduced some of the fat levels in the liver too), ALT has improved to 44. The Healthy range is considered to be 7 to 56 so I have now been brought back into the “safe zone”
So there is the medical confirmation!
I have give JDP Fitness a lot of the credit for helping me get to this point because i honestly hadn’t managed to control my cholesterol for years”
