HEALTH PROMOTING DIET
...But what exactly is a healthy diet? Let's look at what the doctors say.
It's been almost 5 years since Kaiser's Permanente Journal released their nutritional update for physicians. Some highlights from the update include:
"Healthy eating may be best achieved with a plant-based diet, which we define as a regimen that encourages whole, plant-based foods and discourages meats, dairy products, and eggs as well as all refined and processed foods"
As well as: "Research shows that plant-based diets are cost-effective, low-risk interventions that may lower body mass index, blood pressure, HbA1C, and cholesterol levels. They may also reduce the number of medications needed to treat chronic diseases and lower ischemic heart disease mortality rates."
And finally: "Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients, especially those with high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or obesity."
