High Cholesterol Board Index


Hello, I think the quiche might skew the test results. What you can do is to make sure everything else you eat that day is fat-free or very low-fat. Don't forget to fast 12 hours before your cholesterol test. As far as being vegetarian and allowing a few high fat items per week...is it saturated fat like in dairy products and eggs? You might want to get out a food diary and mark down what you eat each day for 1-2 weeks and figure out the cal. and total fat. You need to figure out the cal. so you can see if you're really eatting low fat or not. There are a lot of hidden fats out there and a food diary will help you find them. When I first started my food diary, I thought I ate low-fat too until I figured it out. My hidden fat was in eatting too much low-fat cheese, nuts, and too much Chinese take-out. (The Chinese take-out was tofu and vegetables, but they are still cooked in a lot of oil...making it just as bad as a cheese burger.)
