The Kickstart Your Health curriculum is based on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's successful 21-Day Vegan 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 shift in the quality of foods we eat as opposed to the quantity.  For some people, this may be their first time thinking about not restricting amounts of foods but rather choosing the right foods as the guilding 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!   This 5-class series includes:

Class 1:  Power of Your Plate

Class 2:  Let's Go!

Class 3:  Getting in Gear

Class 4:  Breaking the Food Seduction

Class 5:  Keys for Natural Appetite Control
