You don't need to avoid eggs and seafood
Some foods are high in cholesterol but they’re fine to eat in moderation, as long as your overall diet is low in saturated fats. For example:
Egg yolks – these are high in cholesterol but are rich in several other nutrients. It is recommended that you limit the number of eggs you eat to the equivalent of one a day (whole or in dishes).
Seafood – prawns and seafood contain some cholesterol but they are low in saturated fat and also contain healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Seafood is a healthy food and should not be avoided just because it contains cholesterol. However, avoid fried and battered seafood.
