I receive a tremendous amount of email from people on Coumadin® (warfarin) about how to eat healthy while on Coumadin. They're confused because they've been told, "don't eat anything green," or "stay away from leafy vegetables." They wonder, "What CAN I eat?"
Many people are on Coumadin for illnesses that can benefit from a healthy diet, so they're looking for a simple, easy to use plan that will help them control the amount of foods that contain Vitamin K while also eating healthy. I've developed My eatTHISdiet, my interactive meal planner, to help you create two-week meal plans that are safe for Coumadin (warfarin) users.
How did eatTHISdiet come about?
You know what it's like to need to lose weight or just to eat healthier. There's an enormous amount of information on the Internet and in books about how to eat healthy and lose weight, but none of it really makes it easy.
My patients would come to see me and when I would talk to them about how to eat healthy and lose weight, they would say, “Tell me what to eat.”
And like most doctors (I'm a board-certified internist), I would say something like, “Well, cut down on fats and saturated fat and reduce the amount of calories that you eat.”
Because I grew up in the restaurant business and am a chef, I know quite a bit about cooking and nutrition. I'd tell my patients about books and websites where they could get information about eating healthy, and occasionally I'd help them create meal plans. We would discuss fad diets and their pros and cons. I'd overwhelm my patients with information.
But it was only after a patient said to me, "Don’t tell me about all that! Just tell me what to eat!" that I finally got it.
That's when I created eatTHISdiet. Using my low fat, low calorie, healthy recipes, I created a six-week eating plan to help that first patient lose weight by eating healthy. It worked so well for her that soon other patients were asking me for their own eatTHISdiet meal plan! Dozens of my patients helped me refine the diet so that it'll fit into your busy lifestyle. It's flexible, easy to use, and best of all, no more cooking one meal for yourself and one for the rest of the family. Yes, the whole family can follow eatTHISdiet For Coumadin Users. It's safe for those on low-sodium diets and for diabetics, too.
Everything you need is here on this website. Weekly menus, recipes, even shopping lists! Even if you don't need to lose weight, but just want to eat healthy, you can do that with eatTHISdiet.
