Food for Life: The Power of Foods to Kickstart Your Health

We will soon be offering a new class focused on weight loss and optimal health!



A Whole Foods, Plant-based Diet: would you like to know what its all about? Surely you have seen it on TV or heard of it on NPR. Many athletes and celebrities, even former president Bill Clinton are following this diet. Clinton says he feels better than ever and is now the same weight he was in High School!

This diet of whole grains, beans, vegetables, and fruits can help prevent diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases. According to the American Dietetic Association, "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."
 
Don’t know where to begin?  Food for Life: The Power of Foods to Kickstart Your Health
This curriculum is based on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's successful 21-Day  Kickstart program. Depending on one's perspective, the Kickstart is about losing weight, maintaining a healthy weight, or simply embracing an overall healthful diet. Much of the basis of the Kickstart 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. 
 
Food for Life: The Power of Foods to Kickstart Your Health 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! 


Coming in early 2012!
