Program Components

Nutrition

As you enjoy a tasty and filling whole food, plant-based, low-fat meal, you will learn how the food you are eating is helping your heart and circulatory system to heal. We will show you how easy it is to make sustainable lifestyle changes through supportive systems, while avoiding obstacles and pitfalls.

Yoga and Exercise

Learn exercises and simple habits you can build into your daily routine from a physical therapist. A licensed yoga instructor will show you how to use breathing exercises, movement and quiet to deal with the stress of your life in a healthy way, breaking old patterns.

Small Group Support

Each week, you will be led in small-group discussions with people who are sharing the experience with you. The therapist leading your sessions will help you celebrate what is working and explore challenges, giving you a chance to learn from and support one another.

Backed By Science

Our approach focuses on a making a lifestyle change, understanding not only what to eat and why it is healthy, but also how to make different choices. Much of the program focuses on building healthy habits and systems that support a new way of living, eating, dealing with stress and enjoying relationships with our loved ones and friends.

John A McDougall, MD., the author of The Starch Solution (and 11 other books), has shown that a diet centered around starch (complex carbohydrates) is healthiest for humans. He quotes Dartmouth anthropologist Dr. Nathaniel Dominy, “A majority of calories for most hunter-gatherers came from plant foods, not animal foods, thus humans might more appropriately be described as ‘starchivores.’” Low carb diets can produce short-term weight loss but with real long term side effects and medical complications, including increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke and cancer.
