GUEST,Peter from Essex BS: cholesterol...thru the roof (45) RE: BS: cholesterol...thru the roof 05 Sep 04

You soon get used to skim milk, I find full cream far too sweet now. If you must use full cream then try and find a source of water buffalo milk - higher overall fat but less saturated fat than cows milk.

Red wine in moderation is good. Eat fish and poultry, lean red meat in moderation. Use buttermilk or smatana rather than full cream on deserts - eat more fresh fruit. Use olive oil when you have to fry (and very little then) and an olive oil based spread rather than butter.

At farmers markets look out for the more exotic low cholesterol meats such as ostrich.

The worst thing for me was giving up cheese, I used to eat at least a quarter pound a week. About four times a year I buy some expensive cheese from a specialist cheesmaker and just bliss out.
