At all stages of the human lifespan, every incremental shift towards a diversified whole food plant-based diet is associated with incremental gains in longevity and vitality, and reductions in the burden of chronic disease and premature death.

I have always tried to discuss nutrition with patients in the past, but despite knowing the benefits and eating plant-based myself I haven’t felt very confident. Now that I have some useful tools and techniques on how to broach the subject with patients I feel that I will be able to make a real change in the health of my patients.

Supporting others to make sense of this ever-changing, and often conflicting, food environment, and to realise that following a whole food plant-based diet doesn't need to be complicated, expensive, or restrictive, is what gives me purpose. Doctors For Nutrition is a group of like-minded professionals, all striving for that very same purpose.

I believe that one should lead by example. Since changing to a whole food plant based diet and increasing my exercise level, my blood cholesterol level has fallen by over 40% and I feel more vibrant and energetic.
