Research shows about 80% of chronic diseases are preventable with simple lifestyle changes, like a healthier diet, moderate exercise, and maintenance of a healthy weight.  Currently ~60% of US adults have at least 1 chronic condition and ~40% have 2 or more.

Your diet plays a central role in your health (or disease).

  • In 2017, diet surpassed tobacco as the leading cause of premature morbidity and mortality in the United States.
  • Just 1 in 10 adults in the United States eat the recommended number of servings of fruits and vegetables.
  • More than 50% of all calories consumed come from ultra processed foods.

A whole-foods based, plant-heavy diet has been shown to prevent and even reverse multiple chronic medical conditions.

Mental Health is Not Discluded

The connections between chronic diseases and diet are what we are used to hearing about – but recent research has revealed links between highly processed foods and your mood. One 2022 study of over 10,000 US adults showed the more ultra processed foods people ate, the more likely they were to report feelings of depression or anxiety.

The food connection to brain health has also been found with other aspects of cognitive health, such as the ability to learn, remember, reason, and solve problems. Good nutrition provides you with vitamins and minerals, helps prevent and alleviate inflammation throughout the body, and will make you more resilient against disease.

The focus of this site is geared towards improving your diet and lifestyle to see improvements in both your physical and mental health. Often what I’ve seen in clinical practice is that mental health is a barrier to dealing with our problems. When we are stressed, anxious, and depressed, it can be overwhelming to take on a new treatment plan, be consistent enough to see changes, and all too easy to give up on our goals or even set any in the first place.
