Foods for a Healthy Heart

Food for Life: Foods for a Healthy Heart Join Food for Life Instructor Susannah Dickman to learn how to keep you Heart Healthy!

Is your New Year’s goal to eat healthy and feel good? Are you curious as to what foods to choose to help you achieve your health goals?

Join Susannah Dickman for this fun and educational class! This curriculum is based on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine’s successful 21- Day Vegan Kickstart program. What this means is choosing the right foods as opposed to restricting the amount of food we eat as the guiding principle for losing weight, getting, and staying healthy. Other benefits from following this new way of thinking about diet are lowered cholesterol as well as better diabetes and blood pressure control.

Finally, improved energy and mood are consistent positive side effects of the Kickstart Your Health 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: 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! Price includes recipes and nutrition information.
