People nowadays are very particular on the numerical values of calories and cholesterols in foods. Are they really bad for the health? The calories in food serve as the unit for energy-source in the body. So, we need foods since they are the ones containing the fuel or the battery for us to live. But if you do not burn the excess calories in the body, it will turn to the unwanted fats as seen as bulges in the body. The cholesterol on the other hand is the component of our cell membranes that are key ingredients of hormones, fat-soluble vitamins (Vitamins A, D, E and K) and bile acids. These substances aid our body in digesting foods to convert them to energy and nutrients. Cholesterol is divided into two kinds. They are the good cholesterol (High Density Lipoprotein/HDL) and the bad cholesterol (Low Density Lipoprotein/LDL). The LDL are the enemies of our body since they are the ones filing-up and blocking the blood vessels leading to hypertension and heart attacks. Plant-based foods are the abundant sources of the HDL.
