1:46 Dietary cholesterol
2:55 The truth about cholesterol

Let's talk about the truth about saturated fat and cholesterol.

Cholesterol is a type of fat made by the liver that's used to make cell membranes, hormones, and vitamin D.

Saturated fat is a type of fat that stays solid at room temperature, while unsaturated fat is liquid at room temperature. Coconut oil is 87% saturated fat, and lard is 47% saturated fat.

Dietary cholesterol has little effect on total cholesterol. Your body makes about 80% of your cholesterol. If you consume more cholesterol, your body will make less. If you consume less cholesterol, your body will make more.

It's okay to consume steak, lard, and butter. Cholesterol is only bad when combined with things like sugar, smoking, trans fats, and seed oils.
