I have high cholesterol and I was wondering, can I eat anything that doesn't have cholesterol in it?
I have been eating stuff like Starburst and Skittles because it doesnt have any cholesterol in it but is it still healthy for me to eat

No, candy is going to be high calorie. Try to eat more fruits and veggies. A well balanced diet will help your cholesterol go down. Try and reduce the amount of oil and butter used in the preparation of your food. Grill instead of fry.

Take one pinch cinnamon powder in warm water at bed time to reduce your cholesterol. Take this for six months.

In a simple word NO. They are filled with sugar.

Generally animal foods are those that have cholesterol- but some are worse than others- shellfish and fish have cholesterol but they also have Omega 3 fatty acids which are good for you.

Have you tried smart balance (the margarine)? The medical studies surrounding it are amazing to read. It really lowers cholesterol-

Also increase your activity level.

Triglycerides are not cholesterol!! They need to be watched as well. But are a different animal>

High cholesterol can cause many health problems and getting it down should be top priority, Check the labels on all the food that you eat. Most baked goods such as breads have eggs in them which is a source of cholesterol. Some meats such as chicken livers have high cholesterol. Do a Google search and you should get a list. To bring it down try no-flush niacin (a B vitamin) available at most health food stores. Also I would take a cayenne pepper supplement to help keep your blood thin. Eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Sugars are bad. The cholesterol molecules become crosslinked by sugars, making them more prone to being deposited as plaques.

All animal products have more fat and cholesterol then plant based foods. Have your diet more based on fruit, vegies and grains. You can have some meats, but keep the servings small, 2-3 ounces.

Candy has a lot of sugar, and little if any actual nutrients. The excess sugar will jump your triglycerides. Also something you don't want.

Your body can tolerate some dietary fats and cholesterol, just cut back, and eat a whole lot less packaged food with trans fats. Have some fruit after a meal with fats in it.

Fortunately, elevated triglycerides is one of the easiest problems to correct with the appropriate diet. Simple restriction of all sugars and grains.

Sugars and grains and require insulin secretion, which is a potent stimulus to the liver to produce triglycerides, and sugars and grains must be reduced if you are looking to lower your triglycerides.

There are so many other cholesterol-free foods that are healthier than Starburst and Skittles! Those candies are basically empty calories and they are no good for your teeth, either.

As others have said, cholesterol is found only in animal products. So a very simple, yet effective, solution is to eat only foods that come from plants. Make sure to eat a balanced diet, with a variety of foods from the following four food groups: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes (beans and lentils). It is also good to avoid excess fats and oils, especially saturated and trans fats, and to exercise regularly. You can read more about it in the source below.

It is good that you are aware of your high cholesterol, and now you have an opportunity to do something about it so that it does not lead to health problems. Good luck.
