Metabolic Food Plan

Why the Metabolic Food Plan?

The Metabolic Food Plan (aka Cardiometabolic Food Plan) is designed for the following individuals:

  • Those with risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD)
  • Those with risk factors for dysfunctional metabolic conditions such as metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes (T2D), or lelevated cholesterol/triglycerides.
  • Those with CVD (e.g., high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and elevated blood fats)
  • Those with metabolic syndrome (e.g., high blood sugar, increased belly fat, low testosterone, PCOS)
  • Those with Type II Diabetes or Pre-Diabetes.

Fortunately, diet and lifestyle interventions are effective in preventing and treating all of these conditions. This Metabolic Food Plan Comprehensive Guide explains what makes this food plan unique for the individual. It also provides answers to common questions people may have as they start to follow the plan.

Some people may question why the same food plan is suggested to treat both cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. While they may seem to be different types of conditions, cardiovascular and metabolic dysfunctions share similar causes, including inflammation, insulin resistance, and stress. This food plan is also called “cardiometabolic” because it addresses both disease states. It allows people to use food medicinally to treat the common underlying causes.
