Are you sometimes confused about what to eat? Does it seem like nutritionists are always changing their minds? Do you want to lose weight but don’t know where to look, or what to believe? Almost everyone I know answers yes to at least one of these questions. Yet decades of research and thousands of studies have shown that approximately 80% of chronic conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and stroke can be prevented through modifiable lifestyle changes like diet. Eighty percent! So why are people continuing to gain weight and suffering from preventable diseases that compromise their wellbeing and longevity? As a health expert and food personality, I write, speak, teach, and cook to help put an end to nutrition confusion. I’m so glad you found me! Please poke around my website to see the different ways I help people harness the power of food to live their healthiest, most delicious lives. You, too, can enjoy a longer life, free of chronic disease, by learning to balance the science of nutrition with the pleasure of eating. We’ll do it, together, one delectable bite at a time.
