Your blood lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides) can become elevated, yes. You should limit your overall saturated fat intake anyways, but a little Valentine chocolate won't kill you. :P

Really i wouldn't worry about it too much unless your derm has warned you that your levels are too high.

OH NO!! I have an appointment tomorrow for blood work and I had a toasted ham and cheese sandwich on texas toast and a side of onion rings today at lunch! I was being SOOOOOOOOO bad, and I totally forgot about the cholesterol thing! I will ask my derm for you and let you know. (That is if I don't have a heart attack between now and 9:15 tomorrow!!
