Improve your diet, improve your health

We acknowledge that you have a wide array of choices when it comes to feeding your body, and we will continue to provide educational resources to help you understand the different diet options. It is important that you know that dietary changes should be taken very seriously. Understanding the impact that dietary changes can have on your body is especially important for consumers with chronic illnesses or those with a history of heart disease. Our coverage of diet fads are simply meant to provide you with a high-level understanding of the essence of the diet. Before you make any changes to your diet, we strongly recommend you consult your primary care doctor or a nutritionist to ensure that you are making the right dietary decisions for your body.

Eating a healthy diet is one of the best ways to make a positive difference in your health and wellness, but the large number of choices out there can make it hard to know where to start. Find the resources you need to help you weigh your options and determine which eating plan meets your needs. Search for a doctor in our regional directory or find a location near you:
