    I understand only around 10% of the cholesterol in your body is absorbed by food (maybe less), so it doesnt matter, however; I am wondering how much cholesterol you guys eat per day. Apparently I consumed 2468mg today.

    Pretty sure the answer means that they don't count cholesterol and just focus on good whole foods. Neither do I, but with the amount of eggs, liver, and fatty red meat I prefer I'm sure its sufficient to keep an optimal hormonal profile and do the necessary repairs.

    I wouldn't worry about the cholesterol intake in your diet.

    I asked how much cholesterol you usual consume. I didnt ask if its good or bad. I asked how much. There was no scientific reasoning behind it. I know a lot of people have apps that tell them.

    First of all, cholesterol is not "absorbed by food" in any percentage so, no, you did not clearly state anything. You showed that you needed some basic info on cholesterol and the link I gave you is one of the best around.

    Congrats. U found a typing error. Obviously cholesterol isn't absorbed by food. Good for you for knowing that. Now lets stop being retarded here. We both know the point of this thread was to see how much cholesterol people ate. I am sorry my posts aren't simple enough for you. Maybe u should stay out of my threads, seeing as how u always misinterpret them.

    For the record. I read the straight dope on cholesterol, a more in depth updated cholesterol paper than ur link. So yes, I know a bit a out cholesterol, despite what my typo may suggest

    Yes, you feel great but how do you know that evil bad, bad LDL-C isn't plugging up your arteries behind your back when you are not looking? Just kidding of course because I am now enjoying 2-3 pastured eggs per day, 1 lb of US Wellness liverwurst per week, 1 lb grass-fed ground beef per week, 1 lb US Wellness ground bison per week, 2-3 ozs of cheese daily and half&half in my coffee. My goal is to manage postprandial blood glucose which I can do very well on a VLC diet. I will have a lipid panel done sometime soon to hopefully confirm a big reduction in trigs. If my LDL-C is elevated because of my new diet then tough cookies because high BG and high trigs are much more concerning to me.
