program 2: eat healthy. save the earth.

There is a revolution in health and wellness happening. Discover why NFL football players, Beyoncé, Olympic athletes, medical doctors, pro tennis players, and so many celebrities are discovering a surprising new high-performance hack—going vegan. This comprehensive, science-based program will teach you how adopting a healthy plant-based lifestyle puts you at the forefront of a new global paradigm for health and well-being for you and all life on Earth.

Health: The latest medical research reveals that adopting a whole food, plant-based lifestyle helps us gain more energy, uplifts our mental health, helps us live longer, and prevents and reverses an array of health issues (which may include acne, cancers, diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity). Environment: By switching to plant-based foods, we become super heroes for the planet by dramatically reducing climate change, pollution, deforestation, species extinction due to habitat loss, ocean dead zones, and water use. Animals: Adopting a plant- based lifestyle protects animals by reducing the more than 56 billion land animals bred and killed for food annually. It also reduces the 2.7 trillion fish killed each year for human consumption. Mind-Body-Spirit: Plant-based diets have been shown to boost mental health and increase physical performance. We become leaders in living with kindness, compassion, and harmony with the natural world by thriving without harming other living beings.
