When I eat butter, and other things (like over Christmas break) I start to feel normal, level out blood sugar, and circulation improves. Without my testosterone drops (testis represent themselves as small as possible), I don't digest anything, and my nerves work poorly. When I eat it all the opposite happens.
The weird sounds in my head of blood gushing diminishes, I sleep better, my libido goes up, nerves work again, and I think I even start to make stomach acid again.
I don't understand... shouldn't my liver make it, especially when I provide it with tons of vitamins, awesome amounts of omega 3, etc? I my lab results before I took choline (so my liver would even process fats) had a very good ratio of HDL to LDL, but both where minorly higher (since my system wasn't doing anything with them).
Right now I am going to make a concerted effort to eat eggs with HCL, and whatever else comes up that has significant cholesterol in it. I want the inner peace I started to have over Christmas break, the sleep, the reducing of urination, all of that.
Well, we certainly need cholesterol in our bodies. My father-in-law ate about three eggs every morning with some type of fatty "breakfast" meat and loads of biscuits. His cholesterol total was around 180 all the time! He also ate tons of salads and fruit!

I am no expert, but fats actually help nerve conduction, in that mylian sheath is the insulation that keeps the electricity in the impulses going instead of dissapating (the sheath is fat mainly). I am no expert with what fats are good or bad, but i know that some fat and cholestrol are good. If you had zero chol. you would not be healthy!
Another weird thing is that stress itself can effect cholestrol. I come from the mental health school of thought, so i believe that mental state and stress (percieved) are just as strong of factors as physical factors like foods and so forth.
Cholesterol is the precursor to all hormones in our bodies. In other words, your body needs cholesterol to produce testosterone, the other sex hormones and the other hormones your body requires for optimal functioning.

I wonder if it's cholesterol specifically that your body craves, or saturated fats. Since the two are found together in most animal products, it can be hard to know which it is that your body needs. Saturatated fats provide stability to cell membranes, while unsaturated fats provide fluidity. We all need a balance of both kinds of fats for healthy cells, but what constitutes a "healthy balance" may vary from one individual to another. You may not have been getting enough saturated fats for your personal needs.
