Even if you eat healthy and exercise regularly, your cholesterol levels are more likely to be elevated if you are overweight.
Being overweight increases your blood cholesterol levels since your body stores the extra calories you eat as triglycerides. When these triglyceride levels are high, HDL (good) cholesterol levels tend to be low, a combination that is associated with an increased risk for heart disease. Losing just 10% of your body weight (25 pounds for someone who weights 250 pounds), can improve your cholesterol levels
I weigh about 94 kg 10% less would be 9.4 kg = 84.8 kg
