When trying to eat right for cholesterol reduction, the biggest barriers her patients encountered were lack of time and complicated meals. Recognizing that certain foods mirror the effects of statins on cholesterol, Dr. Klodas set out to create a food-based solution that was convenient, science-based and delicious. The result is Step One Foods, a simple, effective option for patients who are statin ineligible, statin intolerant, or unwilling to commit to a lifetime of medications.
