Your body naturally makes its own cholesterol as well. I usually make it my goal to eat as little cholesterol as I can. Notably, eggs have quite a bit. I sometimes use egg substitute to lower cholesterol levels.

Thank you very much for your input, that seems to be pretty consistent with what I've found also. Much appreciated.

I know the maximum is 300 grams per day. If you were dividing that between 3 meals, then 100 per meal seems appropriate. That is, for a healthy person. If you have heart disease or high cholesterol, than 200 grams per day is the maximum.

I am pretty ignorant when it comes to knowing the answer to this and someone just asked me. Since I don't know the answer I figured I'd learn it not just because they asked but because it would be good for me to know myself... Here is my question:

What is a good range for cholesterol in a meal?

I don't know what the range even looks like to be honest, as I've never suffered from it. I never really learned about it, what I did learn, I've long since forgotten. So if anyone could help me out with a bit of info, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, will continue on in my searching.
