A WFPB lifestyle aims to maximize consumption of nutrient-dense plant foods while minimizing processed foods, oils, and animal. Research shows that plant-based diets are a cost-effective, low-risk intervention that may lower blood pressure, HbA1C, and cholesterol levels as well as increase weight loss and reverse many chronic diseases (diabetes II, high blood pressure, heart disease, certain cancers and autoimmune diseases) as well as reduce the number of medications needed to treat chronic diseases and lower heart disease mortality rates. Recommend watching the movie Forks Over Knives prior to class.
