has been an incredibly exciting time
for Dr. Gourmet. The website is growing
so quickly that it’s
hard to keep up with it. We have added
recipes, reviews of research, commentary, ingredient and
equipment information and sections for
Special Diet Resources at a dizzying rate.
Drgourmet.com is becoming the resource that I have
always wanted it to be. Regrettably,
there are too many diets that make outrageous
claims but are based on little or no
research. The plans are simply what someone thinks makes
sense without any foundation in reality
or science. Being able to provide readers
with reliable, factual information about
what has been proven to be a healthy
diet is one of my primary concerns.
A growing body of research proves what a healthy diet can do
for us and in the last few months I have been able to write on
some of these. Here are the links to those columns including
next week’s Dr. Tim Says… column on how carefully
decreasing the amount of calories and the portion size of a dish
can add up to an additive reduction in calories.
Really IS Brain Food!
2. Eat Less, Reduce
Your Risk of Heart Disease
3. Small Changes
Can Have a Big Impact
4. A Mediterranean
Diet Won't Make You Fat
5. Eating fish slows
the progression of heart disease!
6. Low Fat Diets
Don't Make You Fat
that You Can Eat Less,
Eat Fewer Calories, and
Still Be Satisfied
be able to support such research with
recipes and a diet plan like eatTHISdiet—is the most important
part. It’s OK to talk about how important
eating fish can be in the prevention
of heart disease, but you need to know
how to include that information in your
daily life. So there are recipes and
tools to help you actually eat better.
feedback that comes back from readers
makes this even more rewarding. Please
write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or to my webmaster at email@example.com and let me know what you think of the
site, the recipes, or anything else you'd
like to share.
the coming months we will continue to
add tools and features to make eating
healthy easy and satisfying. This month
for people who use warfarin (Coumadin) will be expanded,
and we'll be adding a section for
people who are sensitive to gluten.
This week we are adding Ask
Dr. Gourmet… a section
that lets you ask questions about food,
recipes, equipment, healthy diets, etc.,
and posts the responses so others can
learn as well.
Thanks for reading,
Eat well, eat healthy, enjoy life!
