Hey Andi, latest USDA guidelines say that Cholesterol is essential and has never killed anybody so go ahead and eat it fearlessly now! 😉 Watch the Triglycerides a bit though but no need to get overwhelmed by it as your body needs all- HDL, LDL, etc. to function normally and think clearly.

Thanks Muslim, I was only confused why some of the lipid results were very good and other high.  someone wanted to put me on statine .. that is a no go they cause more harm than good

Statins are the highest selling drug on the planet.. one of the key side effects is that it makes us dumber, or is that its main effect?! 😉

anyway these are a no go :-)

Why are statins so bad?

on July 9, 2016

Statins are not bad. They are a conditionally essential drug. Example a patient with glucose 6 phosphate deficiency(fat regulating enzyme) has high cholestrol levels due to no fault of his own, then has to be kept on statins.

Hi.. there is definitely good and bad fats. Beware the trans fats hidden in  fried and bakery products.. also packaged foods and cold cuts should be minimised in the diet. Mufa pufa and saturated fats ratio  in foods is wat is to be looked at. Rotate berween ricebran oil and groundnut oil and sesame oil for cooking. No ghee more than 1 tsp to be used per day per person. Include avocados, flaxseeds and fish for heart – protective factors… these are practical tips you can follow😀

Hi Alifia, these are great tips, thank you. Although I do not agree with your ghee assessment, why the restriction?

P.s. I’m a food enthusiast and read a lot.

Thx Anita! Glad u benefitted. good to know u r a foodie! I am a clinical nutritionist and dietitian. Thats bcoz we Indians have a lot of ghee in the invisible form and do not need to supply extra through the diet. The researches that say ghee is essential is mainly for the west where visible ghee intake is low!

on July 11, 2016

Thats a very interesting take Alifia. Never thought of it in that angle. So when you say invisible forms, what are these?

on July 11, 2016

For example, our khakhras, our full fat milk, khari etc have ghee in it. It hs to be accounted for . Also wen we eat out(which is so often), there is tempering of ghee done in most of the dishes.

on July 12, 2016

And what do you reckon about the quality of that ghee? Is it really giving you the Omega-3 that your body requires?

I think its very important for everyone to know that cholesterol cannot be consumed, the body makes it.
