REAL foods, folks, not processed crap. We use butter now, have for years. DH eats four or five eggs daily for breakfast and has for many years, even before we got chickens. His cholesterol is very low. Mine is high because of a thyroid malfunction--was surprised when it skyrocketed after my thyroid went kerflooey (yes, that's a word, LOL). I eat much less saturated fat and meat than he does, so it has to do with genetics, not your diet necessarily. The answer is real food, IMO. Shop the edges of the grocery aisles, meats and produce, but preferably grow your own. We used to have two young doctors, but they left the area and we were crushed. In spite of my DH's excellent cholesterol readings, our new doc (not one we picked, trust me, but the only one we have on the military insurance plan here) is going crazy, insisting he not eat our fresh eggs every day, can you believe it? He thinks it's dangerous. Sheesh, I need to move just to get a better doctor. This guy must not have studied after med school forty years ago.
