The Proven Formula for Success

The Sit Smart Diet

Join the sitting health diet revolution!

A wheelchair life affects many body systems, and leads to many secondary health complications, such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, digestion- and bowel problems, poorly-healing wounds, fatique and depression.

The Sit Smart Diet is the first ever evidence-based whole food plant based nutrition program to address the unique needs of people with spinal cord injury (and those who have to rely on a wheelchair as a result of another neurological disorder).

Take back control over your health. Live better, look better, and feel better  – and prepare to change your life, one delicious bite at a time!

The Sit Smart Diet & Eating Plan uses the latest scientific research to provide state-of-the-art dietary guidelines for effective and sustainable weight management, and to help address secondary health conditions in SCI through nutrition.

Let lifestyle be your medicine

In 2017 Annemarie founded AM Lifestyle Medicine Center; the first center for comprehensive lifestyle intervention (CLI) in The Netherlands. We provide an array of services to individuals who want to lose weight, reverse type 2 diabetes, heart disease and adopt a healthy lifestyle.

We also specialize in the health hazards of excessive sitting (“sitting disease”), and the many common, recurring and potentially life-threatening secondary health conditions of spinal cord injury (or a wheelchair bound life because of other neurological causes).

Awareness is the first step in healing. Our lifestyle medicine specialists work in partnership with you to help you make informed healthier food- and lifestyle choices, and make the connection between what you eat and do, and how you feel.
