Today we had to ran some errands, meaning we would be out all day and eating restaurant food. However making the right choices, I managed to keep my cholesterol intake below the daily recommended 200mg.
Today I learned that 100 gram (3.5 oz) of pomfret contains as little as 30 mg of cholesterol, compared to double the amount in salmon and triple or 4 times the amount in meat.
Eating our first delicious egg omelet since ages, whilst still not busting our diet of 200 mg cholesterol a day and enjoying every minute of it.
Easy peasy: being vegetarian, hence not consuming any meat, and your cholesterol intake just becomes mindboggling low: the 4 mg cholesterol came from a delicious, homemade yogurt dressing.
A fast and simple pork roast recipe with little ingredients but lots of taste: eaten with veggies and dressing on a bun: day 61 cholesterol intake = less than 100 mg.
Eating out could be a killer: today we ate out 2 times, so we don’t have much of a clue how much cholesterol we ate, but an estimate shows my wife went above 200 mg, the recommended daily intake in order to lower your cholesterol strictly by controlling your dietary intake.
As long as you eat in and you are in full control of what you eat, following a diet low in cholesterol is quite easy: today our daily intake was 104 mg cholesterol from pork meat.
It’s easy to follow a low cholesterol diet of 200 mg or less daily intake: just go easy on meat and dairy (butter, cheese, cream, full milk and fat yoghurt), and you will notice the drop in cholesterol consumed.
A complete vegetarian dinner without me feeling hungry later at night resulted in an extremely low cholesterol intake of 50 mg on our 50th day of our low cholesterol diet.
Enjoying Indian food to the fullest without busting the recommended daily 200 mg cholesterol for lowering bad LDL: of course you need to make the right choices in the restaurant.
