Note – Making big changes to one’s diet may result in rapid changes to health, and a need for adjustments to medications.  Blood pressure may drop and insulin sensitivity may change within a few days of adopting a whole-food, plant-based diet.  Therefore, we encourage participants to work closely with their healthcare providers so they can make appropriate medication changes. We also suggest getting lab work, including a lipid panel (cholesterol) and fasting glucose as close to the first and last days of the program, and one HbA1c for those concerned about diabetes.  Seeing the lab results can be uplifting and motivational to stay the course!
