Conventional wisdom says yes, but time to time i've head otherwise in paleo circles but seen no evidence either way
I went HFLC paleo but my cholesterol went out of control, in an attempt to get things back in order im cutting out pretty much all added fat and going with moderate carbs/protein, what im wondering is can i still enjoy high cholesterol seafood/eggs/pork belly or am i resigned to chicken breast & beans with my veg?

It has a tiny effect, not much.?? Your liver regulates the cholesterol levels in your blood very tightly based on need (immune system, repairs, etc.) The leftovers are converted into bile.?? As long as you're not consuming large amounts of carbs, which will shift production to small dense LDL, and have adrequate levels of antioxidants, not much to worry about.
Hore are your homocysteine levels??? If they're high, look into folate, B12, B6 supplementation.
