NutritionMD.org: Like Having Your Own Nutrition and Health Expert
Want easy access to hundreds of delicious recipes? Need tips on healthy weight management or in-depth information about heart disease, diabetes, and other medical conditions? This spring, PCRM launched NutritionMD.org, a new website aimed at helping consumers and health care professionals understand the links between healthy eating habits and good health.
For consumers, the site details the role good nutrition plays in overall health. The site outlines specific health conditions in easy-to-understand language, and provides risk factors, typical treatments, and nutritional considerations for each. For physicians, the site contains more technical information on specific diseases, as well as in-depth information on general nutrition, including the roles of macronutrients and micronutrients and specific nutritional requirements for all stages of life.
The site also contains an extensive “Nutrition Tips” section that provides information on everything from reading food labels and dining out healthfully to reducing salt intake and improving kids’ birthday party menus. There are also more than 800 recipes that help make eating healthy easy and delicious.
But the site’s best feature is a meal planner that helps users select a healthful meal plan, which automatically provides nutrient analyses, recipes, and even a shopping list for your selected dishes.
