Dr. Tim Says....

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.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. What is considered HIGH cholesterol content in food when looking at a Nutrition Fact section? Just curious as my doctor really wants me on medication. But every time I take it I feel like crap AND it is so expensive compared to just looking after your dietary intake."

The research into cholesterol is a good illustration of how far we've come in the last 15 years with our knowledge about diet and nutrition as well as what really works. Should I be Concerned About Cholesterol in Food?

Following the Just Tell Me What to Eat! Plan

Elaine HicksI used to sell and teach people how to cook fresh fish at Burhop's in Chicago. 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

A Healthy Pregnancy
with Faith Bontrager, RN, BSN

Faith Bontrager, RN, BSNThe 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?
