Nutrition

How does food affect health?

The food you eat is very important for your day-to-day functioning. Poor nutrition increases the risk of long-term, chronic diseases.

Dr. Vaze believes that a good, balanced diet is key to preventing chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. She advises all her patients about the power of food as medicine and how a diet rich in necessary nutrients keeps our brains and bodies healthy.  

How can you take control of the food you eat?

Dr. Vaze offers medically supervised weight-loss programs at her office. She helps each patient plan how to eat a healthy diet rich in necessary nutrients and low in fats and carbohydrates. She recommends that you:

  • Match your calorie intake with your calorie burn
  • Balance the amount of grains, proteins, and fat in your diet
  • Eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
  • Eat at least two servings of fish per week
  • Limit sugary food and alcohol intake

How can your physician help you in losing weight?

Dr. Vaze closely supervises every patient who wants to lose weight throughout their journey. She makes sure that the diet plan is right for your health by looking at your eating habits, your daily schedule, and your personal and family history of chronic diseases.

She plans the ideal amount of weight you need to lose each month and whether medications or surgery should be a part of the program. If there are any health issues during the weight-loss program, she takes care of it as well.

Do you need to take nutritional supplements?

Generally, a balanced diet rich in proteins and omega-3 fatty acids and low in saturated fats and carbohydrates provide all the necessary nutrients for optimum health. But Dr. Vaze can take a close look at your diet and, depending on your medical history and laboratory tests results, she recommends any supplements that are needed to maintain adequate health and wellness.

What chronic diseases can be prevented by changing your dietary habits?

Poor diet and eating habits are a major contributor to the increasing incidence of chronic diseases in the United States. Adopting healthy dietary habits may help prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, colon cancer, and smoking-related cancers. With her special interest in preventive medicine, nutrition, and lifestyle management, Dr. Vaze can guide you in making the right daily food choices to avoid obesity and chronic diseases.
