I have high cholesterol, is it unhealthy?

Not necessarily. Although we’ve all heard that too much cholesterol is dangerous, the truth is it is also vital for our body.We now have a better understanding of its role and researchers are starting to acknowledge that the chronic inflammation is a bigger contributor to heart disease than elevated cholesterol [1, 2].

Nonetheless, you should be careful about the quality of your fats on a high-fat diet. The best types of fat by far are MUFAs found in avocados, nuts, coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, and macadamia nut oil. If you include keto diet foods rich in micronutrients (non-starchy vegetables, berries, etc.), you'll further be able to maintain and promote good health.
