The Basics

Print the goals for this module (to the left), or have a notebook ready to write them down.

Work down the page through the videos and links.

We promote a predominantly plant-based, whole food diet!  This is different from a "vegan diet”, which focuses on what you don’t eat, and can actually be very unhealthy, if it is high in salt, sugar and fat!  Most of what you eat should be plant-based, whole foods (from the Green Light  list).  The more of these you eat, the healthier you will be!

Even though we may at times seem to be emphasizing weight loss, the real issue is your health.  Being overweight may just be the tip of the iceberg, increasing your risk for diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and many other illnesses.
