"Dr. Stein is awesome in more ways than one!  He often tells me ways to improve my overall health...physically and mentally.  What he doesn't know is he changed my life! His advice on healthier eating and cooking habits has resonated into improved cholesterol levels and decreased my chances of  developing diabetes. Dr. Stein really cares about his patients - - he is one of a kind!!"

Lifestyle & Culinary Medicine FAQ'S

What is Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle Medicine uses evidence-based lifestyle interventions such as adopting a mostly whole-food, plant-based way of eating, regular exercise, improved sleep and stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connections to prevent, treat and often reverse chronic disease.

What are the benefits of Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle Medicine can help you lose weight, keep your heart healthy, prevent Type 2 diabetes, protect your brain from dementia and Alzheimer’s, improve your cholesterol, and decrease your risk for cancer, stroke and heart-attack. Plus whole-food, plant-based eating has less impact on the environment and animal welfare.

What does it mean to be a “Certified Lifestyle Medicine Practitioner”?

Most physicians and health professionals receive little to no education on nutrition, physical activity, sleep, social connectivity, and the avoidance of risky substance use which are the six pillars of Lifestyle Medicine. Certification in Lifestyle Medicine indicates that the individual has mastered the science of preventing, treating, and reversing chronic disease in an evidence-based manner with official acknowledgement from the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine (for physicians and specialists) or the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (for professionals and practitioners).

What is Culinary Medicine?

At Baltimore Lifestyle & Culinary Medicine we wholeheartedly embrace “Food is Medicine”. You don’t need to be vegan to experience the benefits from eating more plants. We’ll teach you how to adopt a mostly whole-food, plant-based way of eating for maximum health benefits.

Do you accept insurance?

Baltimore Lifestyle & Culinary Medicine is out of network and does not contract with insurance companies. Payment for visits and programs is expected prior to or at the time of service. We accept credit cards, checks and cash. You may also pay using a Health Savings Account (HSA).

Where do you offer services?

Our offices are located in Baltimore, Maryland. We offer services in Baltimore City & County and throughout Maryland. We can also deliver services virtually in the state of Maryland.

What’s the first step to work with Dr. Stein?

There are two ways to get started: You can sign up for any of the programs on the Services page or you can set up a free 15 minute consultation to discuss your situation with Dr. Stein. Dr. Stein will then make a recommendation as to which program will benefit you the most.

Will Culinary Medicine put me on a weight loss diet plan?

While Culinary Medicine focuses on the food you eat, it is not simply a fad diet or weight loss plan. In Culinary Medicine, the best science on improving your health and nutrition is used to give you a new relationship to food and eating. Your body weight is one aspect of your health that will be incorporated into a holistic approach that includes healthful eating.
