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.
Today we found a delicious basil vinaigrette dressing recipe and had a total cholesterol intake of 112 mg from pork meat.
After 2 weeks of dieting, I noticed my previous diet was rich on cholesterol rich food like squid and prawns.
Trying to make delicious pork patties with less cholesterol: today’s fried piece of threadfin fish and 2 homemade pork patties resulted in a dietary cholesterol intake of about 115 mg.
Today we went for Japanese lunch buffet: making healthy choices and enjoying the food, no counting of cholesterol: lots of fresh Japanese sushi fish and no oysters, no mussels, no eggs, no cakes…
Today we estimate to have eaten 99 mg cholesterol in Hainan chicken rice, fried mackerel and a cup of chicken stock. I also found out that I should start counting saturated fats. Luckily we don’t buy anything with trans fats.
At day 10 of our low cholesterol diet, I consumed an estimated 74.5 mg cholesterol: 63.5 mg from pork meat, 10 mg from Greek yogurt and 1 mg from low fat yogurt.
Today’s cholesterol intake is about 221 mg. We went out for nasi lemak with chicken rendang and for supper we made cholesterol free, healthy banana pancakes.
The meals from Day 8 where similar to those of Day 1, yet with 20% less cholesterol intake and below the recommended 200 mg/day for people who want to
lower their cholesterol like I do.
The real chef in the house is my wife, enjoying a downsized coconut rice – nasi lemak – and cooking up 2 fast, easy and delicious Chinese meals: noodles for lunch and rice for dinner, with a total cholesterol consumption of 97 mg only.
Today’s cholesterol intake is 119 mg. I finally discovered an oatmeal breakfast I enjoyed with almond milk, had Chinese takeaway for lunch and made pork peanut patties for dinner.
Today’s cholesterol intake was 110mg, due to only one meal with meat: my utterly objective wife gave me an 8 out of 10 for my new burger patty recipe 🙂
Today we managed without a problem to stay under the 200 mg cholesterol intake: we had pork meat for lunch and dinner, and chose all other food items – tidbits included – cholesterol free.
Day 3 of the cholesterol diet consumes less than 100 mg of cholesterol and serves delicious fried noodles with pork for lunch and an equally delicious grilled fish for dinner. Add to that a mixed salad with lemon vinaigrette salad dressing and hummus from the leftover chickpea curry from yesterday.
Today my estimated total intake of cholesterol is only 120 mg. This evening was all about trying to make a delicious vegetarian curry based on dried chick peas.
A quick lunch: 1 chicken burger, using the left over chicken from yesterday with lots of salade and the cholesterol free garlic sauce, and for drinks a peach smoothie with yoghurt.
