Series Content/Current Situation:
- Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Plant-based diets have been shown to decrease the risk of heart disease. Yet, most physicians do not have the necessary skills to counsel patients on making healthy lifestyle changes.
- Based on National Health Interview Survey Data, only 32.6% of patients reported receiving diet counseling at their visit. A patient receives more counseling if obese and is more educated than uninsured or less educated patients,
Series Desired Practice:
Increased adoption of plant-based diet in our physicians, staff, and patients. Increase education to our patients on the benefits of plant-based diets and adopting healthy eating habits, in order to reduce heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, certain cancers, and to improve mental well- being.
