Over the past twenty years, it has become increasingly clear that cardiovascular health is inextricably linked to healthy carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Metabolic syndrome – the cluster of conditions that increase the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease – is a major cause of chronic health problems as we age. In this course, we will explore the science that supports – or doesn’t support – diets that have been popularized for correcting carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Evidence-based nutritional approaches that effectively delay or potentially reverse metabolic disturbances will be reviewed.
