Summary: For weight control and reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, a focus on healthy foods and overall dietary patterns -- rather than individual nutrients -- is most consistent with modern nutritional evidence. In this video segment, excerpted from the weeklong Brigham and Women's 'Cardiovascular Medicine Update for the Practitioner' Board Review Course, Dr. Mozaffarian reviews contemporary principles of healthy eating and explores several evidence-based approaches to maximize behavior changes such as shared setting of focused, proximal goals; regularly scheduled follow-up; self-monitoring, and in-person, telephone, or electronic feedback. According to Dr. Mozaffarian, community and policy approaches are also effective, and healthcare providers or organizations should advocate such measures to improve the health of their patients, their communities, their families, and themselves.
