NAPLES, Fla., May 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent academic study found a direct correlation between healthy eating, saving money and preventing heart attacks and strokes. Researchers at Tufts University artificially observed people, aged 35 – 80, enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid to see if prescribing food as medicine would have any effect on overall health. The results were astonishing. Researchers proved that within their test group, as many as 3.3 million medical conditions (including cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes) could be prevented or reversed with healthy eating; they also found that with the implementation of healthy eating, the savings on health-care related costs for the group exceeded $100 billion.
While insurance subsidized food prescription plans may be a thing of the distant future, Naples-based bistroMD – a home-delivery service providing people on the move with access to healthy, chef prepared, nutritionist approved meals – has been offering food prescriptions to its members since 2003. Founded by Dr. Caroline Cederquist, a board certified family practice and bariatrics physician, both bistroMD and its founder believe that food is medicine and have been practicing this philosophy for over 20 years. In the early stages of her career through her hands-on work with countless patients, Dr. Cederquist recognized that many of the health problems plaguing modern Americans were directly related to their weight. This realization inspired her interest in bariatrics, the specialty of medical weight management.
"People don't always understand why they've gained weight, they just want to lose it," said Dr. Cederquist. "Without understanding the mechanisms behind their weight gain, most people are unable to cure the underlying metabolic condition that is often causing the weight gain; and that's where bistroMD comes in."
Consistently ranked number one in diet meal delivery, bistroMD offers its members a selection of meal programs, specifically tailored to their unique dietary or medical needs. Available programs include Standard, Gluten Free, Heart Healthy, Diabetic or Menopause options. Members select the frequency of meals, outline their goals and choose their dishes.

Some of the most popular bistroMD meals include, Lasagna with Garden Marinara, Meatloaf with Honey Bourbon Glaze, Herbed Chicken Parmesan, Pork Tenderloin with Mushroom Marsala and many more. Complimentary dietitian support is offered to every bistroMD member and each bistroMD Registered Dietitian is personally trained by Dr. Cederquist.
