Planted firmly in my diet are shrimp...

However recently I have read there is a lot of controversy behind this shellfish...

Are they good for you or are they bad for you?

I now hear that they are very high in cholesterol, can anybody clear this up for me?

One 3-oz. serving of shrimp contains 147.9 mg of cholesterol, roughly half the cholesterol you should consume in a day. While physicians and nutritionists discourage the consumption of cholesterol in high quantities, trans fat has more bearing on your cholesterol level than dietary cholesterol. You may still include shrimp in your diet if you have high cholesterol. Just monitor your meal plan to avoid eating more than 300 mg of cholesterol per day or eat shrimp as a special treat.

No one knows your body better than you!!!! There are a lot of varying opinions on the subject but I would ask your primary care physicisian that question based on what your levels currently are!

If you have any other questions at all, please feel free to reach out to me at any time as I am here to help!!!
