Poor Diet “Biggest Contributor To Early Deaths Across The World”


Diets high in red meat and sugar, and low in plant based food (i.e. vegetables, nuts and seeds, fruit), has been found to be the BIGGEST contributor to early death in the world.  The research has found that poor nutrition is associated with the incidence of leading causes of death such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Sadly, the “Standard North American Diet” has kicked down the door so in many countries and cultural food is being replaced with a love of fast food.  When combined with low physical activity this change is leading to an significant increase in deaths and illness, which are all completely preventable.

Once a fast food lover and vegetable hater myself, I get it.

It’s delicious.  It’s easy.  I don’t have to cook.  I hate vegetables.  I don’t know what to do with them. I don’t have time.  Healthy food is boring.

But people!!!  We need to turn this mentality around otherwise we will get sick.

In my work, I have devoted over a decade of learning and practicing the intricacies of nutrition that can be customized, flexible, tweaked, made approachable and enjoyable.

Not all health care providers will do this kind of work with their patients, or practice what they preach.  It’s tough to learn and re-learn nutrition strategies.  To train or re-train tastebuds and minds.  But I have made it my mission to continue to provide this kind of care.

…To get more and more people eating better and excited about being healthy.

…To help show them what they can do for themselves that no one else is showing them.

…And yes, as always, to CHEER THEM ON, support, advise, inspire and be there for them.

Are you feeling sick, tired and need help with your nutrition?  Do you think you need to get your nutrition on track to help yourself and help your family?  I am happy to help.  Let’s contribute to a healthier society.  For more information email drlaura@winhealth.ca.
