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.

Mike, yep, need to add some more fruit and veggies, will probable add in some more chicken and fish and not eat pork/beef every day. I was hitting the meat pretty hard. Thanks for the feedback
