A vegan diet of whole grains, beans, vegetables, and fruits can help prevent diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases. Food for Life: Kickstart Your Health will help you discover the world of health through general topics ranging from digestion to blood pressure. Results are likely to be immediate and impressive!

This curriculum is based on the Physicians Committee's successful 21-Day Vegan Kickstart program. Depending on one's perspective, the Kickstart is about losing weight, maintaining a healthy weight, or simply embracing an overall healthful diet. This series is about making a qualitative shift in the way you eat. For some people, it's the first time the idea of not calorie counting but choosing the right foods has been the guiding principle for losing weight and staying healthy. The revelation is bolstered with clinical benefits such as lower cholesterol, better diabetes control, and lower blood pressure, as well as improvements in energy and mood.
