I am so honored to have been able to collaborate with the PCOS Nutrition Center on this blog. Educating the Hispanic community is a passion of mine. With this blog I hope to help Hispanic women ( and others) understand why PCOS is so under diagnosed and how to work with healthcare professionals on getting correctly diagnosed!
I am so super excited to be featured on Healthie’s ” 4 fantastic Philadelphian Nutrition Entrepreneurs” when they asked to interview me, I jumped at the opportunity. Its a great way for Philadelphia to learn about how so many dietitians are working hard to help them become healthier!
Today happens to be National Registered Dietitian Day & National Women’s day. It also happens to be National Nutrition Month.
It only seems fitting that today I write about why I do what I love and how an RD can help you! This months theme ” Put Your Best Fork Forward” really focuses on taking small steps towards your health. Rome was not built in a day, so how can you expect to change ALL your habits in one day? a week? a month? We need to shift our thinking, instead of focusing on losing pounds in a week, lets focus on adding a fruit or a veggie every day or taking a 15 minute walk during your lunch break. With these small achievable goals, you will start to see the difference and see your health take a turn for the better.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in American women. What a woman eats and her lifestyle choices play a big part in her heart health. Although some genetic factors also play a role in heart disease it is important to try and minimize the risk as much as you can.
A persons diet is highly important when it comes to the development and prevention of cardiovascular disease. So what makes a good heart healthy diet? What should you eat and try not to eat? A persons diet should contain 20-35% of fat. The healthy fats are located in foods like: fish high in omega 3’s, nuts like almonds and walnuts and olive oil.
