I recently just started using online macro counters to manage my diet and I always seem to go over Cholesterol my at least 150-250 mg each time. In terms of weight training, do you think this is something to be worried about. My diet calls for 420mg of cholesterol a day. Thanks in advance.

It seems that they are finding that cholesterol consumed in the diet has little to do with total cholesterol. Also, the more important risk factor is the total number of LDL particles in the blood (LDL-P). Traditionally they measure the cholesterol content of LDL (LDL-C), the so called "bad cholesterol". Check out the series on cholesterol below:

Much dietary cholesterol is actually believed to be beneficial in terms of overall health... matter of fact I think I'm gonna go eat some eggs right now!
BTW... you might see contrary information to what is being said here... but every piece of modern, credible science supports what has been said here and dismantles old-school theories of dietary cholesterol... and fat for that matter... I've heard it said before but I'll repeat it: nutrition science now is about where medical science was around the era when things like germ theory were being developed - i.e. its still very primitive and we are just now starting to get it...
