How Pritikin Works
Based on more than 100 studies published in leading medical journals over the past 30 years, the Pritikin Program is arguably the healthiest lifestyle on earth.
In health conferences worldwide, researchers at UCLA, Stanford, MIT, and Harvard have lauded Pritikin's remarkable results. The Pritikin Program has been scientifically documented to:
- Improve virtually all modifiable risk factors for heart disease, the #1 killer in the U.S;
- Prevent and control Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, the Metabolic Syndrome, and several cancers; and
- Promote healthy, long-term weight loss.
Best of all, people feel the benefits of the Pritikin Program almost immediately. Within two to three weeks, high cholesterol plummets. Hypertension disappears. Many diabetics no longer need their medications. Excess weight melts away. And energy levels soar.
Put simply, the Pritikin Program is true wellness. True wellness is not just the absence of known disease, but also the promise that you will remain well - vital and joyous - for some time to come.
The Pritikin Program
Nutrition · Exercise · Mind-Body Health
Three components make up the Pritikin Program: Nutrition, Exercise, and Mind-Body Health. Optimal health requires that we follow the whole program because the foods that we eat, the physical activity we do, and the emotions we feel are all intricately interconnected
Choosing foods that work for you -- not against you -- is what Pritikin eating is all about.
An immense contributor to this "feel good" spirit of so many Pritikin devotees is the Pritikin Exercise Program. Certainly, exercise is good for us for numerous medical reasons, such as burning calories, boosting weight loss, and protecting against heart disease. But regular exercise also does wonders for our emotional health, staving off depression and anxiety, reducing stress, and helping us feel our best each and every day.
