    Outdated cholesterol information

    It is upsetting that they continue to run outdated cholesterol quizzes. Healthy fats are now the TOP of the pyramid. My cardiologist wrote in his instructions to follow a low carb diet with lots of seed, nuts and olive oil. Cholesterol is made in the body by combining saturated fats and SUGARS, even those from carbs like potatoes. Blaming saturated fats and implying that a low fat diet is still a valid alternative is just wrong. Low carb, low sodium, exercise, and good fats is what good cardiologists are recommending these days. Eggs and olive oil? A great breakfast.
