NutritionMD.org: Start Putting Nutrition to Work for Better Health
Have you ever wanted a one-stop-shop Web site that would give you everything you need to know about healthy eating? Do you want easy online access to hundreds of delicious and healthful recipes? Need tips on healthy weight management or in-depth information about heart disease, diabetes, and other medical conditions? This month, PCRM launched NutritionMD.org, a new Web site aimed at helping consumers and health care professionals understand the links between healthy eating habits and good health.
For consumers, the site provides specific information on 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 and published 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 “Nutrition Tips” section provides comprehensive information on everything from how to adopt a healthy vegetarian diet and understanding the benefits of fiber to dining out healthfully and helping kids survive the school lunch line. 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.
