Reversing Diabetes

Through the Science of Healthy Eating

For many with diabetes or are concerned about developing it, diabetes is a serious illness that can lead to heart problems, nerve damage, blindness, stroke, or kidney failure. But it doesn’t have to.

Researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health among others, have been proving the effectiveness of new dietary approaches to preventing, controlling, and reversing diabetes.

These studies demonstrate that by adopting a low-fat vegetarian diet – —free of all animal products and added vegetable oils—individuals can lower their cholesterol, reduce their blood pressure, and lose weight. Moreover, this way of eating doesn’t require one count calories, cut portion sizes, or give up all carbohydrates. On the contrary, you can eat as much as you want.

This chef-based coaching program shows you how to nourish yourself deliciously, and benefit from a diet that actually alters what goes on in an individual’s cells. Rather than just compensate for malfunctioning insulin, you will learn how this program helps repair how the body uses insulin. You will learn how to shop and prepare delicious easy-to-make recipes.

Reversing Cardiovascular Disease

Over the past two decades researchers and clinicians have demonstrated that cardiovascular disease can be systematically reversed through lifestyle changes involving diet, stress reduction and exercise. These studies have been well documented and published in numerous publications including the Journal of the American Medical Association and the New England Journal of Medicine.

According to leading experts, diet is the most important change in the process of reversing cardiovascular disease. “Just making moderate changes in your diet may be enough to prevent heart disease, but it won’t be enough to reverse it,” according to Dr. Dean Ornish, researcher of the only scientifically validated program to reverse cardiovascular disease.

To reverse heart disease means becoming a vegetarian. You’ll fill your plate with fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, soy products, nonfat dairy, and egg whites, and avoid fats, refined sugar, and processed carbs. “You want to eat foods in their natural form as much as possible,” Ornish says.

This chef-based workshop shows you how to nourish yourself deliciously, and follow a diet that is scientifically proven to not only help prevent cardiovascular disease, but can actually help reverse it.

Gluten-Free Cooking 

For many people, embarking on a gluten-free way of eating makes them feel remarkably healthier. For others, avoiding gluten leads to a decrease or elimination of many health symptoms, which appear to be poorly understood.

A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes the protein gluten. Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye and triticale (a cross between wheat and rye), in addition to many prepared foods and condiments.

Initially, following a gluten-free diet can be frustrating. But with knowledge and creativity, you’ll discover there are many foods that you already eat that are gluten-free and you will find substitutes for gluten-containing foods that you can enjoy, and an infinite number of recipes that are simply delicious.

This chef-based coaching program teaches you how to restock your kitchen with healthy alternatives to gluten containing foods, how to shop and how to prepare delicious gluten-free foods.
