A recent health program, the 15-day Jumpstart, showcases the incredible impact of altering one's diet (Friedman SM, et.,al., 2022).
The participants were encouraged to follow a whole-food, plant-based diet, emphasizing vegetables, fruits, grains, and legumes. Remarkably, the 389 participants experienced notable improvements.
Average weight loss was 5.8 pounds, average systolic blood pressure drop was 6.8 points, average drop in cholesterol was 26 points, average drop in LDL (low-density lipoprotein) was 19 points and average drop in fasting blood sugar was 5.1 points.
Profound results were especially observed in individuals with higher starting health concerns. Simply put, this 15-day program affirms that with the right dietary choices, education, and support, we can see rapid and significant health benefits.
