Are you eager to trim your waistlines, tackle diabetes, or improve your health? The Food for Life: Nutrition Essentials 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 plant-based dietary pattern of whole grains, beans, vegetables, and fruits can help prevent diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases.
Food for Life: Nutrition Essentials is based on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine’s successful 21-Day Kickstart program. Much of the basis of the Nutrition Essentials is about making a qualitative shift in the way we eat as opposed to a quantitative shift. 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!
