    I'm on a heart healthy diet and all this cheese and butter and bacon just seems like a lot of cholesterol ? Do you have the nutrition list showing that

    Hi Debbie, I have been LFHC for 3 months now and just had lipids checked, all fine. Read "Big Fat Surprise" Nina Teicholz,vfor a thorough exploration of the whole heart healthy, diet-heart hypothesis, after many millions in funding and no connection between dietary animal sourced saturated fat and serum cholesterol. Its more likely the trans fats, margarines and "vegetable" ie seed oils raising LDL cholesterol, all present in vast quantities in processed food as it is cheap and easy to manufacture with.
