What about cholesterol?
What about 2% milk?
Hi Happy Cow,
Welcome to the boards.
Your TC is 250. What are your numbers?
Good saturated fats are not
bad. In moderation you can have butter.
I dislike anything that substitues for the real thing, such as butter, eggs, milk.
Eating foods with cholesterol does not
drive up your cholesterol numbers.
Transfats are your worst enemy; anything that starts with hydrogenated
The food makers take a good fat and make it lethal to our health.
Best diet - Fresh fruits, vegetables, protein, good fats and complex carbs.
Avoid processed foods and fast food.
Just my personal opinion, but the low fat low cholesterol "Heart Healthy"
diet is on its' way out. Our bodies need both fat and cholesterol.
