Karen was a chocolate/ice-cream-aholic with a newly diagnosed high-cholesterol problem she thought was under control. She thought that her exercise regimen was enough, but it wasn’t. When her doctor wanted to prescribe a statin, she researched and looked into cooking alternatives that her whole family would eat. With cardiac dietitian Jennifer Koslo, Karen created The Low Cholesterol Cookbook and Action Plan to help others.

Westport internist, Dr. Jill Denowitz says: "For anyone who wants to take control of their cholesterol levels, I highly recommend The Low Cholesterol Cookbook and Action Plan. It explains cholesterol and heart disease in accurate, easy-to-understand terms. Although much is determined by genetic factors, a cholesterol-lowering diet can definitely play a role, and the dietary guidelines in this book are in line with advice I give patients every day.”―Jill Denowitz MD, Diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine
