okay, the main thing is, why don't you limit your butter consumption to a reasonable amount? Like, your average restaurant portion could feed you for several meals, if you weren`t such an fleeking piggie.

The point really is, eat more omega-3s (fish, grass-fed meats, dairy, and eggs, or take cod-liver oil), reduce your intake of omega-6s (limit your intake of vegetable oils, or stick with coconut, palm, or olive oil, which is healthier, and try to limit processed foods, which contain lots of mutated omega-6s, including trans-fats), and when you get your cholesterol checked, don't focus so much on the total blood level, but rather your triglycerides or even your c-reactive protein (crp), which is a better long-term indicator of your heart health. If you`re maintaining a good omega-3/omega-6 ratio, your HDL and LDL should be in good standing.

The famous study that most doctors go by (but are starting to not) was found significantly flawed. It showed by country that populations with higher cholesterol levels had higher rates of heart disease. But the scientist only included about 15 of the countries and left out the others that didn't match this finding. In fact, some countries with the highest cholesterol had low heart disease and vice versa.

Plus, there is no such thing as "good" and "bad" cholesterol; that is an oversimplification. Cholesterol got accused of causing atherosclerosis (plaque in the arteries) and heart disease because it was found repeatedly in high quantities in autopsies done on heart attack corpses (but not in all). Cholesterol is actually important to the body because it helps heal damaged arteries, kind of like when platelets rush to the scene of a bleed. So those with atherosclerosis are damaging their arteries somehow, but cholesterol was just trying to repair the damage. It's like finding firefighters at a fire and blaming them for causing it. What can hurt arteries is triglycerides, among a few things.

In fact, low cholesterol has been known to cause more harm than good, because our bodies need saturated fat and cholesterol to build and maintain cell walls and function. And there is no correlation between high total blood cholesterol and increased risk of heart disease.
