Weight Management

Let the “food for thought” mantra guide your eating habits in the new year. Nutrition experts suggest that while some diets can prevent certain diseases, others may boost brain power. Try to look for foods that have vitamin K (green, leafy vegetables), are rich in omega-3 fatty acids (fish and walnuts) or contain flavonoids (strawberries and blueberries). In addition to helping with memory and cognitive abilities, many of these foods are good for the heart and blood vessels. Learn more about Atlantic Health System’s nutrition services >
