WEBMD warns about dietary cholesterol…

Pounding down eggs, lamb, fish, pork, cheese  or steak? Well guess what… dietary cholesterol does add to raising human cholesterol levels and heart disease.

  1. Limit cholesterol consumption. Dietary cholesterol can raise blood cholesterol levels, especially in high-risk people. Limiting dietary cholesterol has an added bonus: You’ll also cut out saturated fat, as cholesterol and saturated fat are usually found in the same foods. Get energy by eating complex carbohydrates (whole wheat pasta, brown or wild rice, whole-grain breads) and limit simple carbohydrates (regular soft drinks, sugar, sweets). If you have high cholesterol, these simple carbohydrates exacerbate the condition and may increase your risk for heart disease. (webmd.com)
