I was maintaining my weight really well until my doctor put me on a low cholesterol diet.  I immediately gained 5 lbs. on this diet.  Would it be better to be lighter with higher cholesterol or heavier with low cholesterol?  This is very discouraging.  However, I do not want to be put on medication to control cholesterol.
