P.S. I don't like sweets. Much prefer foods tickled with peppery or bitter condiments.
I have a low cholesterol count too. But I am almost a vegetarian. I eat mostly fish. Almost no beef or pork flesh. But I have eggs and butter and cheese. I don't care for the sweets either. Love the hot spicy stuff though. I read a book in the mid 80's that was actually written in the mid-70's about the subject of fats and cholesterol. Written by a doctor, don't recall the name right now, but he made very much sense on the subject. He said -- any fat, like margarine, which solidifies at room temperature is worse that butter. It is lacking in the nutrional value that butter has for one thing. And will clog arteries as likely as anything. He also pointed out the fallacy of believing that starchy foods which are fried in an unsaturated fat are better for you, as unsaturated fats will become saturated at high temperatures and make a bond with the starch molecules. As he put it -- think of it as a man with empty hands (unsaturated) and at a high temperature you are filling those hands with the starchy molecules. I personally think that worrying about it causes high cholesterol. Eat lots of green leafy veggies and fruits and forget about it. 8^)
Another thought on this. I also don't care for sodas. Cokes and stuff. I have believed for a while now that they cause a lot of the health problems people suffer. For one thing, you are consuming what -- carbon dioxide, and where does all that carbon go once our bodies have utilized the oxide part? I believe it ends up as plaque in our arteries and stones in our kidneys among other things. I could be wrong though.
