ou are what you eat
Karirn Harati-Zadeh practices the science of eating well for a long 1 fe
By Arnold Wayne Jones Staff Writer
Healthy eating is sort of like Mark Twain's
definition of a literary classic: Everyone praises
it, but no one actually reads it.
People who claim to be nutrition-conscious
may not really know what's going into their
bodies, and how items affect everything from
bone density to a strong immune system.
That's where Karim Harati-Zadeh can help.
A chiropractor and nutritional counselor,
Harati-Zadeh is determined to inform people
how to maximize the health benefits of what they
put into their body.
Most of Harati-Zadeh's clients fall into one of
two categories: Those who have a particular
condition and want specific advice, and
those who know nothing about nutri-
tion and just need general infor-
mation. Whatever the situa-
tion, Harati-Zadeh says
nutritional counseling can
ing, in short, is about
designing a particular-
ized intake of food.
One of bis special- i
ties is consulting with
patients who are I
go to medical doc-
tors, but they only get I
the basics," Harati- I
Zadeh says. "There is i
so much information
out there. But it does-
n't work unless it's I
tailored for them indi-
vidually. What I do is \l
much more detailed
than recommending a Karim Harati-Zadeh, a chiropractor and nutritionist, says everyone can learn to eat bet-
'•ood diet or takin« med- 'er With°ut making tremendous sacrifices.
HIV can put pressure on overall physiology, he
says. So he focuses on supplementation, which
he says is often overlooked in the treatment of
HIV but which can add to overall health.
Those asking about weight loss and sports
nutrition—common for those starting a program
for athletes or just joining a gym for the first time
— represent other categories of those for whom
nutritional counseling can be beneficial.
Take fad diets from South Beach to Atkins and
everything in between. They may shed bounds
quickly, but are not necessarily wise for you.
"When you lose weight, if you're overdoing it,
you're putting a lot of pressure on your organs."
Harati-Zadeh says. "A lot of people say, 'my
friend tried this,' but just because you hear about
it doesn't mean it's a healthy diet for vow."
Harati-Zadeh gathers detailed personal infor-
mation, such as your age, sex, health history, cur-
rent condition, family medical history, lifestyle
(job, activities), food allergies — even food likes
"And if people say I can't eat this or am aller-
gic to that, I call tell then what to substitute. For
instance, everyone knows oranges are very high
in vitamin C, but green peppers and tomatoes
have even more vitamin C in them," making
them options for those who don't like the taste of
For those interested in losing weight, Harati-
Zadeh doesn't merely tell them what to eat, but
when and how to eat. He even counsel patients in
favor of snacking, because frequent eating fuels
the metabolism. The kind of snacks is what mat-
ters — try grapes, not Gummi Bears.
"It's not about starving yourself," he says.
"The key is not even always to eat less. If you eat
healthy foods it will spur your metabolism."
Harsh diets strike a blow to your system when
you go off then, and most people "never stick
with them forever."
He dismisses the "no carbs" approach, sug-
gesting instead that it is important to eat healthy
"Avoid bleached and processed foods. Avoid
white bread and white rice in favor of whole
grain breads and brown rice. Before, I was really
into white rice but I slowly mixed the brown with
white," he says. Eventually, he was able to cut
white rice entirely from his diet.
A lot of what we eat we do so out of habit. It is
hard at the beginning to leave alone a food you're
used to reach for. His system of slow transitions
works well for many of his clients, he says.
