Why are all my favourite foods so high in cholesterol!!!!

Eggs, prawns, pate, butter, cream, pistachio nuts.

Given enough bread, I would happily live on the above for the rest of my life. However, my father has very high cholesterol despite a very healthy diet, so I feel that I should avoid foods that are high in cholesterol.

So why are my tastebuds drawn to the bloody stuff? Why can't I like lettuce, or apples?

Isn't there something different about the cholestrerol in prawns and egss though? Not so harmful or something?

It's not the fat though, because I don't want olive oil! It's as if my stomach is locked on self destruct!

I thought eggs were good now. Especially Columbus eggs (which I have just bought!) as they're high in Omega 3s.

Eggs are good, definitely. Just not fried if dieting! I gather even the scare about cholesterol in eggs was over the top.
