In lectures I will almost always have someone ask about cholesterol. This is the one area where people are very confused and here's an example of a question we get from our readers:
"When I look at some of your recipes I see some of them are way over 250mg cholesterol, for instance your Eggs Benedict with 283mg. I understand eggs are considered a high source so that doesn't surprise me with the figure. But.....
"I have a cholesterol problem and am trying to lower it without medication. I came across your recipes by doing a search.

In those days, I ate fish most days of the week (and smelled like a fish... no wonder I didn't have very many dates even though I was living near the Rush Street neighborhood). Something happened along the way. Even though I still have a ton of fish recipes, I forgot to use them! Until I got hold of this book and those FABULOUS Dr. Gourmet recipes! Have you tried the Seared Halibut with Basil Oil? I can't wait to make that again! Rediscovering Cooking
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that pregnant women eat fish up to two times per week. Fish is a great source of protein, it is a heart healthy fat for moms and may be important for baby's brain development. Fish can be great sources of vitamin D and iron.
But can eating fish decrease your risk of a pre-term birth? One Fish, Two Fish... Full Term Birth?
