There are several good points. Avoid meat as a rule and if you are going to eat meat choose the less fatty meats. Red beef for example in most cases is very fatty whereas buffalo isn't.

In our country we can't afford the meats. We don't have bad cholesterol or heart disease. We don't want the worms. Avoid the meats.

Rice and beans make a complete protein and at the same time lower your cholesterol and blood pressure.

Try buffalo and emu. These are high protein low cholesterol meats for the diet.

Lean meats, such as chicken, turkey and fish are your best bet. However, beware of the mercury content of some fish, as well as the high fat content in others. For instance, Tilapia is a fish that doesn't contain high levels of mercury, BUT it has a high fat content.
Try eating a low-mercury fish twice per week, skinless chicken twice per week and a plant-based diet the other three days. Don't fry them, but bake or broil them instead. Ideally, gradually increasing your plant-based days while decreasing your meat and fish days is best.
Also, exercise is VERY important in lowering your cholesterol.

Why worry about such things as cholesterol, calaries, etc. when all you need to do is pray giving thanks and allow God to do the rest.

cholesterol is a balance. the only way to generate the cholesterol that is needed is to exercise.
if you want top lower the bad cholesterol, eat the meat of fruit and veggies and eat more red, black, yellow beans.
it is amazing how since the seventies, the experts have eliminated salt, fat, and other good things, and we are fatter than ever. we were generally not fat in the seventies and before.

Study the Primal Blueprint and read The Paleo Soultion by Robb Wolf/Fat and Cholesterol are Good for You by Uffe Ravnskou/ The Great Cholesterol Con by Anthony Colpoe, etc.
I also would like you to google "The Cholesterol Myth That Could Be Harming Your Health" by Dr. Joseph Mercole.
Saturated Fats and Dietary Cholesterol DO NOT cause heart disease and are not harmful. Google "Health Benefits of a Low-Carbohydrate, High-Saturated-Fat Diet" and "Saturated Fat What if Bad Fat is Actually Good for You?".
I suggest you eliminate grains/sugar/processed foods, and focus on healthy fats (butter, coconut oil, EVOO, fatty meats [grassfed if you can], etc), omega 3 eggs, nuts, fruits, and vegetables.

I boil beef and pork and chicken, in order to get the fat out. And put the boiled water in the refrigerator, then skim the fat off. And I can use salad dressings to flavor what I have boiled, and the oils in dressings often may not contain cholesterol, so that I still get needed fat in my diet.
I would say you could go on the Internet to find out exactly what cholesterol is in each meat and fish and oil.
And there may be surprise sources of cholesterol that you could be eating and not know it, even while you are so careful about meats. Not all fish is alike, plus different parts of chicken can have different amounts. And vegetables might have it, ones more than others.
