<span style="font-family:Verdana;">My name is Melissa, I came across this forum while searching online for vegetarians with high cholesterol. I was informed today by my doctor that I have high cholesterol and so I was hoping to find good things to eat from people here since I haven't been eating too good.<br><br>
I have been a lacto vegetarian for 21 years now (by the way I am 26 years old) and I am 30 pounds overweight. I have not been eating well since having my two kids and the call from my doctor today is a wake up call so I'm hoping you all can help me here.</span>

Welcome!<br><br>
Cholesterol mainly comes from animal products, from my understanding. We have lots of vegans here and vegan recipes to help you cut some of those out!
