Diabetes is a major public health problem of epidemic proportions. Eleven percent of the U.S. adult population has diabetes (up from 8 percent in 2007), and nearly one-third of those 65 and older have the disease. Uncontrolled, diabetes can lead to complications from head to toe, including stroke, loss of vision, heart disease, kidney failure, and various problems due to nerve damage and circulatory problems, such as erectile dysfunction or lower-extremity amputation. Research studies have demonstrated that a well-planned plant-based diet has many nutritional benefits and has been demonstrated to be as acceptable as the portion-controlled diet for diabetes management. A plant-based diet has also been endorsed by the American Dietetic Association and described as a safe choice in the 2009 American Diabetes Association's Standards of Care for Diabetes.
Join Chef Kara to learn how a plant-based diet reduces the risk of diabetes and greatly benefits those who have been diagnosed with the disease. Each class offers an informative nutrition lecture, a cooking demonstration of delicious, health-promoting meals, and interactive, support group activities to help you pursue a plant-based diet.
