Losec20mg,

Other than for persons with a serious health problem, my philosophy is to just focus on putting together a reasonably healthy food plan and practice some sort of relaxation-type process/exercises, and the cholesterol issues tend to take care of themselves over time. If I were eating chicken, fish and veal, I would make sure to eat plenty of fresh salads, some cooked vegetables (carrots, broccoli, etc.), leafy green vegetables (kale, collards, etc.), and some non-meat sources of healthy fatty acids.

So, I would never focus on cholesterol, but on a healthy, balanced diet and lifestyle. It seems to have worked best for me and the people I know to keep cholesterol and other health issues in check.

Re: Fish & Chicken

*lol* Losec.

Do you have a problem with high cholesterol? If not don't worry about it. Your body creates all the cholesterol it needs, on average 85%. If you get it from dietary sources it makes less. Endogenous cholesterol (the stuff your body makes) is more easily oxidized than dietary cholesterol, which is a bad thing. The Readers Digest version of this is, eating foods which contain cholesterol has minimal impact on the cholesterol levels in your body.

BTW, w/o sufficient cholesterol you'd die- your brain is 70% cholesterol, your horomones are created from it, and so is Vit D.
