What we're about

Bringing together those who follow a Whole Food Plant Based Lifestyle for improved heath, and

prevention or reversal of chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, type-2 diabetes, MS, and more.

Hopefully you have read The China Study, Food Over Medicine, or WHOLE, How Not to Die, or Forks Over Knives (or seen the movie). This group is here to support each other in our efforts to follow a WFPBL (no-oil)lifestyle, and to give each other recipe ideas and knowledge of places to eat out where we can eat this way easily. I hope to have a topic at each Meet Up: ideas are welcome.

A charge of $1 / member to pay for the Meet Up webpage will be charged at each event.

This is a support & social group dedicated to LEARNING about the prevention, & in many cases reversal of, chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, MS, Lupus, etc. via a
100% LOW FAT, NO OIL, NO ADDED SUGAR, MINIMAL (OR IDEALLY NO) ADDED SALT, "MINIMALLY PROCESSED" WHOLE FOOD, PLANT BASED LIFESTYLE.
Our approach is based on the science presented on the dvd's, "Forks Over Knives", "Plant Pure Nation", and "Eating" as well as the ground breaking book, The China Study.
