I’ve been planning to write at length about this topic for a few months, but I’ve been hesitant to do so for several reasons:
- To discuss it properly requires great care and attention (mine and yours, respectively).
- My own education on this topic only really began about 9 months ago, and I’m still learning from my mentors at a geometric pace.
- This topic can’t be covered in one post, even a Peter-Attia-who-can’t-seem-to-say-anything-under-2,000-word post.
- I feel a bit like an imposter writing about lipidology because my mentors on this topic (below) have already addressed this topic so well, I’m not sure I have anything to add.
But here’s the thing. I am absolutely – perhaps pathologically – obsessed with lipidology, the science and study of lipids. Furthermore, I’m getting countless questions from you on this topic. Hence, despite my reservations above, I’m going to give this a shot.
