Re: Is breastfeeding feeding into my husband's high choleste
I think that anyone who is married or in a long-term relationship knows that their partner's eating habits can impact their own. But don't blame yourself for your DH's high cholesterol. First of all, age and genetics often have a larger say in cholesterol levels than diet- for example, my mom, cursed with genetically high cholesterol, went on an egg, red meat, and dairy-free diet for several months, and only saw her cholesterol go up, whereas my dad, blessed with very opposite genes, can eat ice cream every day and still have totally normal test results. Second, even if your diet is tempting your husband to eat more lipid-rich food, it is HIS RESPONSIBILITY to change that. That might mean asking you to save the steaks and ice cream for lunch, or choosing a salad instead of matching you calorie for calorie... And that kind of self-control is hard, but it's the only way two people with different metabolic needs can make it work!
