28-Day Food For Life: Diabetes Kickstart Program
Reverse Diabetes, Lose Weight, Drop Blood Pressure
In a public health climate where 75% of adults in the United States are overweight or obese and 26 million have diabetes, the need for a lifestyle change is greater than it has ever been. The Food for Life: Kickstart Your Health curriculum is based on the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)’s successful 21-Day Kickstart online program (21DayKickstart.org). The Kickstart program has helped over 200,000 people adopt a whole plant diet to reach their health goals.
These classes can help you lose weight, maintain a healthy weight , or simply embrace an overall healthful diet. For some class participants, 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. Lower cholesterol, better diabetes control, lower blood pressure, as well as improvements in energy and mood are some of the many beneﬁts people experience on this diet.
The program begins with a Kick Off that goes for 28 days, essentially treating food as an addiction. During this period, most can lose up to 5% of body weight and experience a cholesterol drop averaging 20%, improve A1C levels, and achieve a normal blood pressure. Working with your physician is encouraged, as this program is prepared for optimal nutrition and not meant to replace medication or doctor’s advice.
If you’re interested in losing weight, increasing energy, and learning about this life-changing way to eat, sign up for GreenFare’s 28-Day organic, whole plant food nutritional program. Our PCRM Kickstart removes the time obstacle to your success. Registration is available up to 1 week prior to program start date!

- Daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner entrées and fruit for 28 days
- 2 blood tests (optional, but recommended)
- 2 weigh-ins
