Fight Diabetes With Food

Friday, May 14 - Friday, July 2, 2021, every Friday from 9 -10 p.m. IST

Improving your health is more important now than ever. It is possible to improve diabetes dramatically, reduce your need for medications, and perhaps even get off them completely. It can be as easy as what you put on your plate. Join nutrition experts and weekly guests who will share practical tips and inspire you to eat more plant-based foods. For eight weeks, attendees of these free weekly classes will:

  • Learn how delicious, plant-based foods can reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes.
  • Receive recipes and meal plans that can help to optimize blood pressure, weight, and blood sugar.
  • Hear from experts in India and all over the world as to how to plan your meals, feed the family, and navigate successes and challenges.
  • Watch recordings of anything you missed in the series!

Now is not the time to wait! Join with a supportive friend or family member. Sign up today to get access to class resources and recipes before class begins!

In partnership with The Times of India, this class will be taught by India Program Specialist Zeeshan Ali, PhDhealth coach and restaurant owner Nidhi Nahata, and Physicians Committee President Neal Barnard, MD. Dr. Barnard is a New York Times bestselling author, Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, and leading clinical researcher in the field of nutrition.
