Food is medicine. “Doctors need to know about the impact evidence-based lifestyle interventions such as diet can have on chronic conditions.

As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact. I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol. The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease.
Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.

Dr. Phinney explains that originally when Dr. Volek (co-author from University of Connecticut) and he were writing it (the book), we realized that most physicians have no major background in nutrition and so we found ourselves writing in it the entry level for a well-educated smart person, but somebody who hadn’t had previous coursework in nutrition.
