21-Day Guided Vegan Kickstart with Trimazing!


Join Cindy from Trimazing! online and Kickstart your Health!

Many people are eager to trim their waistlines, tackle diabetes, or improve their health. This program presents an engaging and effective way to help you reach your goals. It is based on scientific studies and favors vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains. A vegan or plant-based dietary pattern can help prevent diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, “Appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.”

The 21-Day Guided Vegan Kickstart is based on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine’s successful 21-Day Vegan Kickstart program. Depending on one’s perspective, this program is about losing weight, maintaining a healthy weight, or simply embracing an overall healthful way of eating. For some people, it’s the first time the idea of not restricting amounts of foods but rather 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. This curriculum will allow class attendees to discover the world of health through general topics ranging from digestion to blood pressure. Results are likely to be immediate and impressive!
