I tried the Smart Balance Heart Healthy Spread, which has flax seed oil in it and is supposed to help with cholesterol. I personally didn't care for the taste. So I use olive oil for cooking, peanut butter or spreadable cheese for bread toppings, and butter for the rare instances when nothing else will do, like on a pancake. The saturated fat in butter is not good for people watching their cholesterol, but the trans fats in regular margarines are terrible for you.
My husband and I met with a Registered Dietician when we started our weight loss plan. Our insurance only paid for two visits, but we got tons of useful information and could take it from there.
