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!
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.
