Question

If you don't eat enough cholesterol - does your body not just make it anyway?

Answer

The idea that you should have a low cholesterol diet to lower your cholesterol is completely flawed. In fact if you eat a low fat diet and have lots of refined carbohydrates, then your body likes to make cholesterol out of those excess carbohydrates. So a low fat diet isn't the secret to lowering cholesterol levels.
