Countless scientific studies have demonstrated that a whole-food, plant-based diet can prevent, halt, and in some cases reverse some of the most common and deadly chronic conditions of our time, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. The idea of switching to a more wholesome diet can be intimidating for some, particularly those who have grown accustomed to the standard American diet, a.k.a. the SAD diet. This expert panel, composed of top physicians in the field and people who have transformed their heath by changing the way they eat, will discuss the tangible benefits of a whole-food, plant-based diet and offer tips and strategies to make it easy and enjoyable.
