OK What I have researched and from personal experience is that omega 3´s help reduce cholesterol levels. A dr recommended that one take them in pill form, and that helped reduce CHO levels.
Second thing is that trans and saturated fats according to the latest studies do both contribute to higher CHO levels.
Third, that one with high cholesterol generally will not lower their levels sufficiently with a 300 per day intake. I´m trying to keep mine at less than 100 mgs per day for example.
Fourth, You can track you CHO, saturated, mono, and polyunstaturated fat intake on the food tracker. It has been an eye opener for me.
