    cholesterol

    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

    Did you intend to type "absorbed FROM food" as opposed to "absorbed BY food"? Seriously, how would one know if that is a "typo" or the ramblings of a really clueless person who needs Griff's Cholesterol Primer as a starting point?

    I was offering that link as a sincere attempt to help. I'm glad that it wasn't necessary.

    Now you are just being a jerk because you feel like I insulted your intelligence or something. If you can't post a question coherently but then tell others to stop being "retarded"......... Also, that's not a very polite word to use.
