You have heard of the Mediterranean, Keto, Vegan, Paleo, and MIND diet but have you heard of the Portfolio Diet?
It is actually a “diet without being a diet” as it was designed to work with any healthy food choices to lower cholesterol levels by keeping a focus on 4 food groups in most or all meals. Originally published by David Jenkins, MD, and researchers at the University of Toronto in 2002, it has gained new support. I frequently mention the Portfolio Diet on my podcast (Heart Doc VIP) and routinely give information on it to patients at the Kahn Center.
