    If you drink more than 2-3 *normal* drinks a day, it can effect your cholesterol. Since bad cholesterol is produced in your liver, elevating your liver functions by drinking can increase cholesterol production. Also, make sure you’re eating foods lower in cholesterol, and eat more frequently. Eating very little and drinking more than one alcoholic beverage a day is very unhealthy. Smaller, healthy meals have significant benefits. If you’re eating a lot of one specific kind of food, you’ll want to check into what the cholesterol content of it is. Foods like (as the website I list says) "Biscuits, cakes, pastries, red meat, hard cheese, butter and foods containing coconut or palm oil" have a lot of saturated fats. Also make sure to include fiber and general plant matter into your diet. Eating infrequently will actually hurt your cholesterol, since your body needs certain things to keep cholesterol in check, and I’m guessing that this, along with alcohol, is causing your high cholesterol.
