Diet and Healthy Weight Tips for National Nutrition Month from Patients Medical

NEW YORK, March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Patients Medical, a leading integrative and holistic medical center in New York City, is supporting National Nutrition Month by offering free nutrition seminars and providing patients with tips to improve their overall well-being this March. Dr. John Salerno, formerly Senior Staff Physician at the Atkins Center, and Judy Penta, Nutritionist, two leading nutrition experts with Patients Medical, are committed to the campaign against obesity in both children and adults with information on diet and healthy weight.

"Proper diet and nutrition leads to better overall health. Getting back to basics, avoiding fast food and eating organic, locally grown foods will make a huge difference in American obesity rates," explains Dr. Salerno. "If Americans want to slim their waistlines and improve their health, we need to cut out the excessively refined carbs, starches, and corn-based sweeteners that are so pervasive and commonly overeaten on a daily basis."

"Parents need to lead by example. Their poor food choices snowball into their children's poor health, which perpetuates a deadly cycle," added Judy Penta. "If families incorporate healthy lifestyle choices today, one choice at a time, they can more easily become part of their daily routine for the future. When you've experienced a lifetime of unhealthy habits you never have an opportunity to make the connection between what you eat and how you feel. Major chronic health problems like heart disease and diabetes plague our country today — yet degenerative conditions could be largely avoided with proper nutrition and supportive lifestyle practices."

With more than 15 years' experience, Dr. John Salerno is a board-certified family practitioner bringing his expertise in weight loss, hormonal imbalance and complementary medicine to Patients Medical. He was a preceptor at Yale University School of Medicine from 1994 to 1996. Dr. Salerno graduated magna cum laude from Adelphi University, in Garden City, New York, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in biology. Dr. Salerno is also the co-author of the popular weight loss e-book, The Silver Cloud Diet ( Dr. Salerno was recognized in 2002 by America's Registry of Outstanding Professionals.

Judy Penta is a nutritionist and Holistic Health Counselor, certified by the AADP (American Association of Drugless Practitioners) and Columbia University Teachers College. She has an MBA, a BS in Nutrition and is a Certified Personal Trainer by the NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine). Her mission is to provide customized, comprehensive programs, focusing on healthy eating and lifestyle changes, supporting long-term health and disease prevention. She believes this integration promotes balance in all aspects of life, and improves overall wellness.
