Dietary cholesterol (cholesterol found in foods) is not broken down into good and bad categories. After you ingest cholesterol, the liver puts it into packages - HDL and LDL. This is where you get the good and bad cholesterol labels. The American Heart Association recommends limiting dietary cholesterol to less than 300 mg per day. If you are a higher risk (have an elevated LDL), limit dietary cholesterol to 200 mg per day.
Shrimp: ~220 mg cholesterol per 4 ounces
Crab: ~80 mg cholesterol per 4 ounces
