Description: Kickstart Your Health: The Power of Food for Weight Management: In a public health climate where more than one-third of adults in the United States are obese and millions have diabetes, the need for a lifestyle change is greater than it has ever been. This curriculum is based on PCRM’s successful 21-Day Vegan Kickstart program. The Kickstart has helped thousands of people adopt a plant-based diet to reach their health goals. Depending on one’s perspective, the Kickstart is about losing weight, maintaining a healthy weight, or simply embracing an overall healthful diet. For some people, its foods have 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. Discover which foods are optimal for weight management, learn about various health topics and become empowered with the practical cooking skills needed to help you on your journey to better health. Attendees do all of this while enjoying a cooking demonstration and tasting delicious, healthful dishes in a supportive group setting. Featured Class Topics: Power of Your Plate; Let’s Go!; Getting in Gear; Breaking the Food Seduction; Keys or Natural Appetite Control
