I was just reading a post by Daisychain12 and how cream in coffee stops any sugar cravings during the day. I wanted to add that this was my default after my morning (black) tea and stops food cravings.
In that post I read a reply from, TheAwfulToad, who asked for cholesterol levels.
I've just switched Doctors and had blood test for an illness I have and my cholesterol came back at 6.
I had the free 'Boots Chemist' cholesterol test about 25yrs ago and had a total level of 5 when on a healthy balanced lifestyle, food and exercise. They told to not eat eggs (?) as they where very high in cholesterol, so I thought the recent 6 was ok and in-line with my reduced physical activity and switch to lchf diet from which the benefits I feel are huge.
I received a letter from my GP saying that I was at a dangerous level with my cholesterol (6) along with a dietary advice leaflet promoting lots of salads, pastas and grain filled bread along with the advice to use marge instead of butter (urg) and all the usual high fat, food conglomerate's propaganda (I wish I had kept the letter).
I'm quite happy at 6 as I feel better, I'm losing weight gained from my illness and I get to eat lots of great food.
Happy days, although I've always watched the egg count from the 90's
