About Us

Our mission is to reverse the epidemics of metabolic diseases affecting the majority of people in the U.S., including obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other diet-related conditions.


GOALS

Our goals are:

(1)  to change the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans so that:

a.    they are based on a comprehensive evaluation of the most rigorous (clinical trial) evidence;

b.    they address not just healthy people but also those suffering from metabolic diseases;

c.    they offer a true diversity of diets;

d.    they achieve nutritional sufficiency through whole foods;

e.    the committee that produces them discloses all financial and intellectual conflicts of interest.

(2)   to expand the public and expert dialogue about the causes of and solutions to nutrition-related diseases so that there can be a healthy debate about the uncertain state of the science.

(3)  to shift nutrition funding by the National Institutes of Health towards the study of nutrition-related diseases through the prism of a metabolic dysfunction, including insulin resistance.
