Describes nutritional effects in segments that focus on energy balance, macronutrient quantity and quality, dietary food groups and patterns, and the relationship of these to cardiometabolic health
Features information on novel approaches for promoting metabolic health including behavioral modification, intermittent fasting to achieve calorie restriction, the Paleolithic diet and bariatric surgery
Discusses the relationship of early life nutrition, the gut microbiome and endocrine disruptors to chronic disease, and their modulation by diet
Includes nutritional management strategies for individuals with childhood and adolescent obesity
Provides chapter-specific concluding remarks that summarize the current state of knowledge, and that are aimed at guiding clinicians and healthcare professionals to seek evidence-based practices for promotion of cardiometabolic health


Nutrition plays a key role in prevention of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Diet influences a broad spectrum of cardiometabolic risk factors, notably a cluster including excess adiposity, dyslipidemia, impaired glucose metabolism and high blood pressure. In the face of the rapidly increasing incidence of obesity and diabetes, maintaining cardiometabolic health through adoption of a healthy lifestyle is a top public health priority.
