Why Step One Foods?

The way we treat heart disease today makes no sense. High cholesterol? Here’s one pill. High blood pressure? Here are two pills. This solution never addresses WHY a patient’s cholesterol or blood pressure is high in the first place. It’s like putting pretty, and sometimes very expensive, wallpaper over crumbling walls. It may look nice, but the underlying structure is no more sound.

Our founder, Elizabeth Klodas, MD, decided to take a new approach to heart health and address the root cause of the problem - nutrition - and leverage something patients already do every day - eat! She developed a simple, effective and delicious way to support healthy cholesterol levels with food. It’s step one to better health!
