An Introduction to Diet and Your Heart

Think for a moment about all the nutrition or diet plans you have ever encountered: Weight loss programs, diets for diabetics, general healthy living diet plans, even ‘heart healthy’ diet plans. Virtually all of these take a generic or one-size-fits-all approach to reaching their objective. No wonder the failure rate of these programs is so high. A generic diet plan only fits ‘some’ of us well!

Further, nutrition often takes a back seat to medical intervention. But as we all know, medication and surgery carry their own risks. Nutrition shouldn’t be the last thing we seriously address when we want to get better—it should be the first.

With all we know today, we can do better—much better. In fact, today we can do some truly amazing things with nutrition. With our newfound ability to isolate and target your particular constellation of risk issues, nutrition can be a major weapon against disease.

Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, today’s best research allows us to identify the nutrition plan that is right for you. Further, each plan gives you many roads to get to your destination. So your nutrition plan is simple, but at the same time gives you lots and lots of options, so that you can chose foods that you would most enjoy.

The difference in approach, and results couldn’t be more profound! Instead of a one-size-fits-all diet which yields highly variable results, you get a nutrition plan that is targeted to attack your particular metabolic marker abnormalities. The results can be tremendous, which is why we drag nutrition out onto the dance floor as one of the very first prescriptions that we address.
