The biggest thing to fear with cholesterol is the oxidation of LDL particles (that's where all the issues stem from)....so if inflammation factors are low, LDL particles are big and fluffy (and less likely to get stuck in artery walls), there is enough HDL to take care of LDL......in a sense the total number doesn't matter.

May want to throw in some more fruits/veggies with all the meat to help control any oxidation factors (which could in turn cause the body to produce more cholesterol)....as antioxidants are our friends.
