The rates of obesity and diabetes are higher then ever before. Over 60% of the US population is overweight or obese, and childhood diabetes is skyrocketing. Recent research indicates that a diet high in fat and simple sugar can lead to liver damage similar to what is seen in alcohol-related hepatitis. The result is increasing numbers of individuals relying on medications to manage illnesses arising from overweight or obesity.
There is a great deal of nutrition information available on the internet, popular magazines, and books. Unfortunately, much of this information only serves to sell a particular product. The result is frequently misinformation, some of which can actually pose a threat to patient's health.
In my clinical practice as a nutritionist, I have worked with a large number of patients who developed high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, and elevated liver enzymes or diabetes as a result of their unhealthy eating habits and/or excessive weight. Many of these patients have been able to change their eating habits, lose weight and resume a normal lifestyle simply by learning how to make healthier food choices and how to overcome the road blocks that prevented them from doing so. If they could do it, so can you.
