Plant-Based Diets: What’s All the Fuss? #ACHACares
Do you know that heart attacks and strokes are the top killers in Western society? Are you aware these risks can be lowered with a whole food plant diet, plus fish? Are you curious about this type of diet? Do you wonder what all the hype is about? Well, eating this way reduces your intake of processed foods, which decreases simple carbohydrates, and increases fiber and diversity in your diet. Not only does this lower your risk of cardiovascular disease, but it also reduces your dependency on medications that control those risk factors. Are you interested in learning more? If so, you don’t want to miss this webinar.
