[Sca-cooks] A question about meat-

As I mentioned just a minute ago, I'm rummaging around in Carolingian 
France, and I saw something interesting that sort of piqued my 
curiosity. Apparently, Charlemagne's doctors were after him to eat only 
boiled meats, but he loved roasted meat so that's what he ate, dammit! 
So I'm wondering, does boiling vs roasting change the fat and/or 
cholesterol etc ratios? Were his doctors actually on to something? I 
haven't been able to find any sort of answer here. (And I'd bet Bear 
knows where to find out...)
