My cholesterol level is above 1000, but is coming down. To keep it moving down, I’ve been watching the fat in my foods, choosing low-fat stuff over high-fat stuff. My nutritionist explained that I need to track cholesterol directly. I got home, and looked at a bag of chips that had high-fat, but its nutrition information showed zero cholesterol. I then looked at some microwave meals that had low-fat, but their nutrition information showed high cholesterol.
I thought fat and cholesterol in foods were directly proportional… why is this not the case?
