While most people may not understand the real impact of what they eat, the science is crystal clear. It tells us that changing what and how we eat can have immediate and dramatic effects on our health. In as little as one week, it is possible to drop your cholesterol by 40 to 50 points and even lose up to 15 pounds. Additionally, chronic disease can fade away in a few weeks.
The very same physicians, scholars, nutritionists and researchers who lecture at our Farms 2 Forks Weekend events have witnessed thousands of people reverse their heart disease and type-2 diabetes, get off many, if not all, of their medications and lose hundreds of pounds in a healthy and sustainable way. Seemingly impossible improvements to your health are achievable and, in most cases, may be experienced within weeks of shifting your lifestyle.
A Farms 2 Forks Weekend is not about diet—we teach you about changing how you approach the food you eat. Nothing is more intimate and personal than what you put into your mouth each day. When you learn the “why” and “how” of food—including why the Standard American Diet is so hard on the body, what foods to wean yourself off of and which foods to integrate into your diet and how to do this—your entire life can be transformed.
The knowledge we bring to you and the tools we teach you at a Farms 2 ForksWeekend represent the best practices and most effective ideas from luminaries in the plant-strong field. Just as Rip has helped hundreds of firefighters across the country transform their bodies, their health and the health of their families by taking dense nutritional concepts and making them real, practical and adoptable, a Farms 2 ForksWeekend will give you that same knowledge, understanding and confidence to succeed with your own new-and-improved approach to eating.
Each Farms 2 Forks Weekend is unique in its setting, its menus and its speakers. In addition, each venue has been carefully selected for their team’s attention to detail and enthusiasm towards being a part of providing you a positive learning environment. Whichever weekend you attend, you will be taught by and interact with the most skilled and knowledgeable practitioners in their respective fields. We invite the most talented teachers so that you can gain the greatet education possible in just one weekend. And we try mightily to keep the costs down so as many people as possible can afford to attend. We look forward to seeing you at a Farms 2 ForksWeekend in 2013!
