Food for Life: Kickstart Your Health

The Power of Food for Healthy Weight Management

In a public health climate where 68 percent of adults in the U.S. are overweight or obese and millions have diabetes, the need for a lifestyle change is greater than it has ever been.

The Food for Life: Kickstart Your Health curriculum is based on PCRM's successful 21-Day Vegan Kickstart online program. The online Kickstart program has helped thousands of people adopt a plant-based diet to reach their health goals.

Depending on one's perspective, the Food for Life: Kickstart Your Health classes are about losing weight, maintaining a healthy weight, or simply embracing an overall healthful diet. 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. Lower cholesterol, better diabetes control, lower blood pressure, as well as improvements in energy and mood are some of the many benefits people experience on this diet.

The FFL Kickstart Your Health classes offer a chance to discover which foods are optimal for weight management, learn about various health topics including blood pressure and digestion, and get empowered with the practical cooking skills needed to help you on your journey to better health. In the classes, attendees do all of this while enjoying a cooking demonstration and tasting delicious, healthful dishes in a supportive group setting.
