Nutrition app Lifesum has appointed two well-known nutrition specialists to its Health Advisory Board, with the aim of reversing disease using nutrition and lifestyle medicine.
The appointed experts, Dr Alona Pulde and Dr Matthew Lederman, are recognised for their appearance in the Forks Over Knives documentary and book, The Forks Over Knives Plan. Dr Pulde is a family practitioner and Dr Lederman is a board-certified Internal Medicine physician.
Reversing disease through healthy living
Dr Pulde said: “Nutrition is the fuel that drives our body, mind, and soul. When we optimise our food choices, we not only optimise our health and wellbeing, but can also prevent and reverse disease while living with the vitality that allows us to thrive. Who wouldn’t want that?”
Drs Pulde and Lederman join existing Lifesum Health Advisory Board members Christina Meyer-Jax, MS, RDN, LDN and RYT and Andrew Zimmermann, Founder of Behavior Design Collective. The Health Advisory Board’s combined expertise enables Lifesum to improve its existing services and develop new ones to meet users where they are, provide personalised nutritional recommendations and support them through their health journey.
Dr Lederman added: “Alona and I are thrilled to be partnering with Lifesum. Their team culture and visionary leadership, coupled with their robust and user-friendly platform, will propel our dream of bringing more health awareness and nutrition support to the masses.”
Creating sustainable, healthy habits
While Dr Pulde and Dr Lederman advocate for a plant-based diet, they also recognise the impact lifestyle and preference have on diet and believe in meeting patients where they are to create sustainable habits.
