If I could lose another 12lbs, I would be back to the weight I was in highschool before I had all those surgeries on my foot. That would be ideal.

    My only concern, is that some of the very low-carb foods that I eat (such as shrimp) are very high in cholesterol. I feel like in the long-run this could be a problem. I need to find more low-carb & low cholesterol meals.
    A book I read some time ago, Good Calories, Bad Calories, makes the case that foods high in cholesterol don't actually lead to having high cholesterol; rather, the cause seems to be a host of other factors such as increased consumption of refined carbohydrates, etc. Distinct from the typical book on dieting, this book is well researched and gives a good history of nutritional research and the politics involved. I would recommend the book to anyone interested in science and nutrition, and at the very least, I would recommend you browse the internet on causes of high cholesterol and any pertinent studies. You might not need to worry at all!

    Thanks for the tip. I'm going to grab it on my Kindle.

    I'm really pretty clueless about nutrition in general. So I appreciate the recommendation.

    :3 Just from a medical standpoint, about 10% of your cholesterol comes from your diet.. the rest has to do with your body's natural build and genetics. Our doctor-teacher taught us that in A&P2, something I was not aware of either before then. If you're going to have high cholesterol in life, most likely your diet will have little influence on it.. it'll only add to a problem you'll already have. So I wouldn't worry too much over it.

    As far as every diet/nutrition/anything book or show I've ever seen.. the seafood section is almost always 100% open to people with health concerns. It's like your free-reign section.

    Since the hypothalamus set point regulates body shape through homeostasis then it is in learning how the parasympathetic nervous system as the side of the autonomic nervous system responds to food stimuli in accordance with hypothalamus regulation and metabolism. Which is naturally determined further by blood typing and the kind of nutrients your body absorbs and needs be to sustain a healthy balance between stasis as we are each different yet same in our undertakings when it comes to healthy eating. Which is why diets of every caliber are bunk, the consistency deviates from person to person.

    Rule of thumb is eat as natural as possible, consuming complex carbohydrates helps. For the more natural foods you consume the higher the vibrational energy the food contains. Or rather the higher the nutritional content there is. Processed food is processed to death and hence nutritional value erodes while natural foods that are eaten retain stronger aspects of nutrition.
