What is the disconnect between health outcomes and dietary choices? Health professionals and their patients may be particularly challenged by demanding schedules, conflicting information, and obsolete perspectives. Openly discuss belief patterns, evidence-based research, conflicting information, and limitations of schedules, demands, and availability that may restrict the freedom and enjoyment of making optimal dietary choices. Identify and create fun and healthy new perspectives on what plant-based means, and design meaningful solutions to optimize daily eating habits and long-term health outcomes for both clinicians and patients.
