Fish, especially oily fish, is rich in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Research has established a link between eating fish and a lowered risk of death from coronary heart disease. The American Heart Association recommends that you eat at least two servings of fish each week. (One serving equals about 3 ounces cooked, or a serving about the size of a checkbook).
Examples of fish relatively high in omega-3 fatty acids include salmon, trout and herring.
Grill, bake or poach fish. Limit commercially fried fish and don’t add cream sauces.
Prepare fish without added saturated and trans fat.

I don t smoke or drink. I m about 100 lbs. and don t eat meat, but Chicken every once and awhile. My blood pressure is low. I had my blood drawn about 3-4 months ago and my total cholesterol was 200. Good cholesterol is 79. My Triglyceride level was good but don t remember the exact number. Bad cholesterol was over 50 I believe. My Dr. wasn t too worried but didn t understand the jump to 200. Pass blood test have been great. I started eating Hamburger(red meat) because my Iron had gotten very low because I haven t eaten meat in 20 years. at my Dr. advice. I ate it maybe once or twice a week. I ve since stopped. I take Iron pills now. What could be the reason for the cholesterol number being so high? I m also active everyday.
I am a non-drinker non smoker who rarely eats meat but I have just been told my cholesterol is 6.3 (good cholesterol is 2.3) and previously I had a very low chlolesterol level, around 2.6. What could be the cause of the increase. I walk about 2-3 miles/day and never eat sweets or cakes. Rosemary
