We consistently encourage our patients and clients to follow a whole foods based eating plan that includes healthy fats with all meals. Healthy fats keep us satisfied longer, help us avoid mid-meal snacking, and can improve hormonal balance.

As always, we encourage food made at home from minimally processed ingredients.
