Food For Life Kick Start Class
Monday, January 21st
6:30 PM
Whole Foods Market Cary, FREE

Come and attend this class given by Catherine Maher, PhD, Food for Life Instructor.  This introductory class is based on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine’s successful 21-Day Vegan Kickstart program created by Neal Barnard, MD. 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.
