ACC CardiaCast: CardioNutrition – Case Study: Dietary Patterns

In this episode, Robert Ostfeld, MD, MSc, FACC, discusses a case from the Cardiac Wellness Program at Montefiore where dietary change was associated with improved angina, including the following key takeaways:

  • Healthful dietary patterns share common traits: reducing highly processed foods and increasing fruits and vegetables.
  • Even small healthful dietary changes are associated with improved health outcomes.
  • In this case, a gentleman's progressive angina gradually resolved when he began consuming a minimally processed plant-based diet.
