Can you pinch an inch? 

Turns out, there’s a lot to discover about what type of weight you might be carrying around.  In fact, your weight and health depend on your body composition or lean body mass vs. fat mass. Basically, when you gain and/or lose weight, these can shift and not always for the better in either direction.

Nutritious remedies for heart health

Nutritious remedies for heart health

The beginning of the year is always a time for resolutions, and Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento physician Rajiv Misquitta, MD, has one for you that is very timely considering February is American Heart Month.

Adopt a plant-based diet—basically, be vegan.

That’s what Dr. Misquitta did six years ago after he had a heart attack followed by a five-way bypass surgery four months later. He was just 40 and in reasonably good health.

The Internal Medicine doctor was discouraged that medicine could not completely keep his health problems at bay, so he made what many people might consider a drastic move: He eliminated all meat, dairy, and added fat, such as olive oil and nuts, from his diet. That decision was based on research suggesting a healthy lifestyle can reverse heart disease. He hasn’t had any heart problems since starting his new diet.
