Restaurant food is also high in cholesterol. My Dad spent the last year
travelling around the world -- and consequently eating at a *lot* of
restaurants. Even though he usually eats *very* healthily - lots of home
cooking, no red meat, whole foods, not many eggs - he came back from his
trip with high cholesterol as a nice souvenir.

My advice is cook at home. You get great food, it's cheap, and despite what
they say, you can make yummy things very quickly and easily.
