In a public health climate where more than one-third of adults in the U.S. are obese and millions have diabetes, the need for a lifestyle change is greater than it has ever been. The program helps people adopt a plant-based diet to reach their health goals. It is about losing weight, maintaining a healthy weight, or simply embracing an overall healthful diet. Lower cholesterol, better diabetes control, lower blood pressure, and improvements in energy and mood are some of the many benefits people experience on this diet.
