Hi all, I am wondering if there is a limit to the dietary cholesterol one should include in the diet. An 'optimum' or maximum? What prompts my asking is the increase in positive mood after consuming 1/2 dozen eggs and 7 oz. of liver at a sitting yesterday. The cholesterol might have amounted to 2 grams in that meal. Can this positive mood state be maiontained on such a diet(can the diet be maintained). I assume this is testosterone at work...? Any suggestions for sources of cholesterol(perhaps outlandish ones) would be nice.

Your body needs a certain amount of cholesterol and if you dont get enough from diet your body will produce more. Therefore if you eat more your body will produce less, and vice-versa. I dont know for sure but i think it would be hard to reach your dietary limit.
I have never heard of the link between cholesterol and mood but a quick google search seems to confirm it, so i believe you should be able to maintain your positiveness.
