Hi, I have reviewed your multiple queries relative to fats, nutritional labels and cholesterol levels. First, on the nutritional label, you will find that most values reported are based on a 2,000 calorie or specific calorie amount which may not be the amount you eat per day to maintain your weight so the values may not be individually applied to you. In general, we say that no more than 30% of your total calories should come from fat and of that 30 % only 7% should come from saturated fat and 0 from trans fat for the entire day. Cholesterol recommendations remain at 300 mg or less per day. Nuts are high in monounsaturated fats and as such play, a different role in the body than polyunsaturated fats or saturated fats but will not necessarily lower cholesterol as this would depend on other variables such as total caloric intake and weight maintenance or loss, whichever the need may be to lower cholesterol overall. Yes, lobster and shellfish are very high in cholesterol but not in saturated fat. Cheese is high in both saturated fat and cholesterol. Cholesterol is only found preformed in animal products. Saturated fat increases the absorption of cholesterol from the gastrointestinal tract and also serves as a substrate for the body to make its own cholesterol so combining the two is a double tragedy for your heart. The questions you ask would best be answered by a consultation on a low cholesterol, low saturated fat, high fibre diet plan by a Registered Dietitian. Controlling cholesterol involves limiting saturated fats, cholesterol, trans fat, carbohydrates in some cases, calories, total fat and increasing water soluble fibers, cardiovascular exercise, weight loss to BMI less than 25 as part of a total lifestyle plan. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
