“Let Food Be Thy Medicine & Medicine Thy Food”
—Hipocrates

“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”
—Anne Wigmore

Food Plans

Food is the single biggest modifiable risk factor in modern chronic diseases and at the same time the single greatest health enhancer and disease modifier. You are what you eat! It’s that simple.

The flood plans below are not diet plans but carefully crafted food guides. Some have taken years to develop and each guide had a team of health care and medical specialist that worked on it ranging from PhD nutritionists to MDs, integrative cardiologists and lipidologists. These are medical food plans. All of these plans were crafted by the Institute for Functional Medicine and are being used here with their permission.

Each one is specific for a particular disease entity or underlying pathological process. Please be sure to consult with your personal health care specialists prior to beginning any food plan.

Each food guide contains a master plan that explains the uses of the particular plan, a 7-day recipe planner and a food list that outlines the entire plan in one page that you can use to help you shop at the grocery store.
