This Honest Nutrition feature explains the benefits and limitations of a “food as medicine” healthcare approach. We celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories, traditions and living cultures; and we pay our respects to Elders past and present.

But Mackey is far from the first to claim that certain lifestyle choices, particularly eating the “right” foods, can ward off or cure health problems. Us fat people are lucky to have Joshua, who sees past the fat and diet culture and actually sees us. Insulin injections are vital in the management of type 1 diabetes, whereas dietary choices can only do so much.It is not to suggest one can eat themselves out of terminal illness but food can have a powerful effect on health and some disease. It is focused on the increased consumption of a variety of whole, minimally-processed plant-based foods, and limited intakes of highly processed foods rich in added sugar, oil, and salt. As a Nutritionist, I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in reading more about misinformation and pseudoscience regarding food and weight loss, and how neither will cure your disease or help you live forever. We don’t even need to be thinking about remote communities; it could just be downtown Dubbo for example, where I know that is a real issue,” she says. In all there's some really good stuff in here but there's also stuff missing and the authors personal history and guilt is obviously colouring things.

All of this disproves the notion that eating a certain way, or a certain food, can eliminate the need for health care and medicine.

He wades through nutritional science and dissects every popular diet and debunks a lot of diet myths explaining why so much nutrition and diet advice is based on inaccuracies, bad science or just straight up lies. Another barrier to implementing a food-as-medicine approach is the accessibility and affordability of healthy food itself.

But through personal and professional experience, I’ve found this to be at best shortsighted and truly rooted in elitism,” she says.Nearly all of the discussions are about "weight loss" without distinguishing "fat loss" as a different thing. Within healthcare itself, healthy food and honestly just healthy physical activity does not get anywhere near enough attention it should get. g., experiences of racial discrimination) … stimulate pro-inflammatory processes that may contribute to differential health outcomes,” wrote the authors of the 2019 study. Love how Dr Wolrich addressed so many topics in such a clear and compassionate way to help people sift through the misinformation surrounding food, dieting and health!
