    Hi, yes I believe Donna is right. Keep away from red meat and saturated fats (there the one's that are solid when cold). Stick with olive oil, or better still get used to cooking with no fat at all. You WILL get to like it - I've just cooked a scrummy bolognese sauce without a bit of fat. Can't wait to eat it!
    Best wishes for your healthy eating journey.
    Sorry to hear about your dad, I know how hard that is.

    Sorry I've personally been lucky with my cholesterol levels (glad about this cos I love my eggs) but on the WWW I've seen it suggest fibre - oats, fatty fish and olive oil. No butter, ice cream that sort of thing. Sorry if this is no help at all. Just want you to know I care. Really sorry about your dad.

    love Donna x
