John La Puma        

Physician, Celebrity Chef, Bestselling Author and Host of Lifetime's "Chef MD"

John La Puma MD is a practicing physician, board-certified in internal medicine and a professionally trained chef. His mission is to help you get measurably healthier with what you eat and how you live.

Three of his books -- "Cooking the RealAge Way," "The RealAge Diet" and "ChefMD’s Big Book of Culinary Medicine" -- have been bestsellers around the world and have been translated into eight languages. His new book, "REFUEL," aims to change how men think about what they eat -- as fuel too -- and to help men become stronger, healthier and the best versions of themselves.

The Wall Street Journal calls him a “Secret Weapon” against cholesterol and heart disease. He taught the first Nutrition and Cooking course for medical students in the US, at SUNY-Upstate with Dr. Michael Roizen of the Cleveland Clinic, and the first Culinary Medicine clinical course for medical students in the US, at DMU. His “PBS ChefMD Shorts” series can be seen available nationwide through 2016, and his “Refuel Minute” series is available on YouTube.

Repeatedly named “One of America’s Top Physicians” by Consumers’ Research Council, Dr. La Puma has been honored with the American Medical Association/National Association of Medical Communicators “Award of Excellence.” He is based in and sees patients in Santa Barbara, CA.
