Ed isn't your typical CEO.
As bistroMD's Foodie, he loves to be in the kitchen helping our chefs create healthy and delicious recipes.
Ed fell in love with great cooking and a healthy lifestyle while attending college.
At Caroline's medical center, Ed would often hear patients say, "I'm losing weight, but I don't have the time or knowledge to cook healthy."
This gave Ed an idea: Why couldn't he combine his love for food, with Caroline's expertise as The M.D.?
From this idea, bistroMD was founded.
As The Foodie, Ed visits exotic locales across the world to give bistroMD's entrees a truly global flavor.
This means creating entrees using only the best ingredients, combined with the right science and the beauty of an artistic presentation.
As The M.D., Caroline read her first statistics about obesity at a very young age.
Growing up, the majority of Caroline's family was overweight.
Through her knowledge of weight management, she is proof that you can manage your genetic predispositions through healthy lifestyle changes.
She wanted a career where she could help people understand this too.
Caroline noticed that many illnesses she managed were aggravated by problems with nutrition or weight.
This inspired her interest in bariatrics, the specialty of medical weight management.
It's through her extensive work with patients that Caroline developed the nutritional foundation for bistroMD, focusing on the right balance of macronutrients in the diet: the protein, the right carbohydrates, healthy fats and fiber.
She further carries her message through publications in professional journals, and has appeared as a weight-management expert on several popular television shows, including Dr. Phil.
