Maybe, but are you suggesting that high cholesterol is a bad thing?
If you take a look at any recipe book from the early 1900s and before, you'll find that many of the ingredients listed are lard, butter, cheese, and eggs. People also ate a lot of bacon (high in fat) back then I'd imagine. Funny how the number of myocardial infarction (i.e. heart attack) cases spiked in the early 1920s and 1930s when nutritionists started recommending partially hydrogenated oils such as vegetable oil as substitutes for frying in fat. Apparently cholesterol doesn't really cause arterial plague (atheroma) but things such as vegetable oil have been linked to heart disease due to the trans fats they contain. Even LDL, the supposedly bad type of cholesterol, may be even more protective than HDL but I am not a food scientist so I can't say for sure. Maybe @Johnnyvee can weigh in here. And due to the trans fatty acids that it contains, even margarine, which many people falsely believe to be healthier for you than butter, is probably endangering peoples' health. Furthermore, statins like Lipitor that are supposed to lower cholesterol, have been known to have negative side effects so I'd be cautious of those.
So I'd say don't worry about cholesterol. Food scientists are paid by the food industry to tell us to eat whatever foods drive up profits: mainly sugar and trans fat (the bad type; saturated is okay) because they are cheap to make and last pretty much indefinitely. And foods that are high in sugar and trans fats will contain less of the good stuff.
Bone marrow, eggs, cheese, bacon, butter are all good for you. Don't let "high cholesterol" scare you away.

And, if you can look past the irony of a fat woman talking about cholesterol, here's a well-researched lecture on YouTube based on that study:
Seconded on the ginger. I remember one day, out of the blue, I felt nauseous to the point of puking my guts out. Drove to the store and picked up some ginger. Diced it up and put it in some hot water and drank. Felt fine about 5 minutes later.Ginger is an outstanding spice worth incorporating into your dietary regime.
It has some amazingly powerful antiinflamatory properties, and it is a very powerful stimulant of digestion. In Ayurvedic medicine, where it has seen use for thousands of years to great effect, it is considered a "universal medicine."
And in the soy-infested, testosterone-deficient world we're living in today, it certainly could be a useful adjunct to any dietary program geared towards enhancing male reproductive health and testosterone status:
I thought acai had a ton of sugar. That's why I stay away from it. I do like how it tastes.I recently went through two packs of acai berries ( açaí ) , was the first I'd tried that.
The reason was, I'm often on a snake diet intermittent fast, getting ripped and was reading a bit about insulin resistance and how to improve it. Too many years of abusing sugar, and now there are some small fat deposits that are hard to completely displace.
That and Braggs raw unfiltered, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar while fasting.
Acai is not really a fruit high in carbs, it is actually high in fat and protein! I think you're eating more the seeds than the flesh. Taste is okay. What I learned the hard way - without realising it, is that it is a stimulant, if you have it in the evening, you may not sleep. It is probably more useful to eat it fresh if you are in South America, am not sure if I will end up buying a pack again, am a bit lazy to actually eat it.
I once read that blueerries and apples are among the best fruits for phytochemicals. So I do the literal apple a day and a small bowl of berries (aren't that expensive when frozen, and contrary to popular opinion frozen fruits and veggies don't lose nutritional value in the process).
Also raw veggies cut up with just olive oil, vinegar and garlic taste amazing and you can put in some raw cucumin for the superfood factor.
A good liver detox combo is choline, inositol, l-methionine, and milk thistle (mentioned above). Choline and Inositol are sometimes sold together. One of the few combos I can't find in liquid form or powders, often have to combine 2 or 3 capsules together to get the effect quickly. These four will bring you back from a hangover the day after.I highly recommend all people that live in the west, to try milk thistle oil. All Americans suffer from some degree of fatty liver. However, it's hard to find quality oil. I bought a good brand last year and now the quality sucks. But if you do manage to get it, the healing effect on your liver is instant, within days you feel your body become a lot stronger, lose weight, get denser, deep voice and full of energy.
After drinking it in a Kurdish restaurant I become a big fan of the Middle Eastern sour and salty drink Ayran. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayran
Some people consider it to be one of the healthiest drinks you could have https://www.nutritionadvance.com/ayran-drink/
My favorite version is 1kg/1 liter of Greek fat yogurt mixed with 1 liter of cold water and 4 teaspoons of sea salt. Can be stored in the fridge for days.
If you ever felt bloated because food "just sits" in your stomach and no digesting, no more with Ayran.
Hurry up, in Azerbaijan and Turkey you have competition already https://mcdonalds.az/en/restaurants/products/napitki/ayran/This gave me a business idea, a chain of drink stands specializing in this, I'll call it Ayran Nation.
