France has over 650 excellent cheeses. One needs to walk very quickly past them. You just taste a little, and all of a sudden, you will be wanting more. I agree that cheese is addictive.
As they say in France, "les carottes sont cuites" if you put any of that into your mouth.
All cholesterol is avoided in our household due to a family member suffering from hypothyroidism.
Even with the cholesterol exclusion, their cholesterol bounces back and forth between 198-236-200. The rest of the family's cholesterol readings are 160 for our 90 year old, and 150 or less for the rest of the family.
What can be done to increase metabolism if one has hypothyroidism?
They eat very well but their system is not moving out the bad LDL cholesterol. Their last LDL reading was 153, and their cholesterol reading was 236.
