I was just thinking, people take dessicated liver tabs and whatnot... How good is liver while bulking? I know there's a bit of cholesterol, but doesn't that increase or optimize (supposedly) testosterone levels anyway? I like some liver and onions, but looking on that calorie count website, the cholesterol for a 3 oz piece is like 108% the recommended amount... Assuming one is heart healthy how feasible is this? I know that 3 oz isnt enough for me, I have never eaten 3 oz of anything. I just ate 12 oz (wt uncooked) of lean cube steak and like 2 cups of steamed spinach while typing this for example... the protein/fat/carb ratio is REALLY tempting. Also, what is the general consensus on organ meat?

Thoughts?

Don't worry about cholesterol in food. It really doesn't do much in terms of raising your actual cholesterol levels.

Nothing wrong with liver, eat up!

what Invain said.

Given that you are lifting and controling your calories, I say eat all the satured fat and cholesterol you want.

I take this approach, and everytime I count my macronutrients (www.fitday.com) saturated fat still only makes up around 1/3 of my total fat intake.
