“These findings suggest that to reduce the risks for MetS in adolescents, it is more important to emphasize a paradigm that promotes the inclusion of fiber-rich, nutrient-dense, plant-based foods vs what foods to restrict or exclude as is commonly done when the focus is on total fat, cholesterol, or saturated fat intake.”

  1. I agree. My aim in life (these days) is to try to interest families in nutrition while the kids are young, through stories and a cocky chef who somehow manages to work food into any discussion.
