High cholesterol

Post by abbby » Mon, 17 May 2021 1:47 pm

I always wonder is it high cholesterol is usually caused by consumption too much seafood? People whom I know who had high cholesterol don't really eat a lot of seafood..till i read this CNA article, which is another culprit - fried chicken..

No, unlikely to be only seafood. and not all seafood is bad, but like sucking prawn heads is bad.
most likely it is for eating lot of deep fried food, butter and bacon etc, so called bad fats. It is seldom one food item only but the general diet and type of fats that contribute to it.

Personally I have to say I don't even understand eating deep fried food with that extra layer of batter on top of it, it's so greasy that it becomes disgusting to ruin chicken wings that way. The BBQ wings they sell at hawker centers, that's much more for my taste, at least you can still taste the chicken skin and marinade.

Even if the person consumes less unhealthy fats, some of the other items that he consumes like excess carbo can turn into fat. Happened for me and my doctor advised to cut down carbo and increase exercise. Did that and now all within normal range. So it is not just the unhealthy fat that we consume.

The issue is that fried foods are loaded with calories and can contain trans fats, which makes them high-cholesterol and can increase heart disease risk and be detrimental to your health in many other ways.
