Join us today as we discuss the importance of viewing food as medicine. We discuss the Standard American Diet (SAD), followed by an overview of eating a HCLF plant-based vegan diet as part of a heart healthy lifestyle. We also discuss the “Vegan America Diet“, an unhealthy approach to plant-based eating supported by the advent of analogue meats and highly processed vegan options from the grocery store.

The HCLF approach has a lot to offer. Do not jump from dietary approach to dietary approach. In the end, it is important to monitor caloric intake with nutrient dense foods to promote wellness.
