• Obesity, high blood pressure, and type two diabetes may raise the risk of hospitalization and death from COVID-19, research suggests.
  • Eating a whole foods diet and monitoring blood sugar may help maintain metabolic health.
  • Diet and metabolic health can strengthen the immune system to fight COVID-19 and other viral infections.


NOTE: There are so many diet books out there as well as information on the Web. Most are focused on weight loss (fine for many us), but not the whole picture of why we need sound diet and nutrition advice. I found an excellent book written by people I trust to offer this advice – with its main goal of not just weight loss, but our nutritional health. Check out: How to Eat: All Your Food and Diet Questions Answered by Mark Bittman and David L. Katz, MD. 2020. Its format is Question and Answer form, so it is easy to find just what you may want to know. Sally J. Feltner, M.S., PhD.
