Lobster isn't just for fancy black tie affairs, and makes a welcome addition to a health-conscious diet. It provides a good amount of protein and bone strengthening minerals like calcium and phosphorous in just a 6 oz serving. But watch out for some traditional lobster dishes, like lobster rolls or dipping it in drawn butter; they come loaded with fat, which reduces the nutritional value of the meat. Lobster is also relatively high in sodium and cholesterol, so if you already suffer from high cholesterol or hypertension, limit your intake.
