You have the rare opportunity of consulting with physicians who are not only specialists in traditional fields like cardiology, they are specialists in healthy-lifestyle change.
The 8 physicians at Pritikin have years of experience teaching thousands worldwide how to transform the desire to live well into action. You will receive the highest level of cardiac health evaluations and counseling, plus a personalized blueprint of nutrition and fitness for long-lasting health and improvement.
You are involved in a totally immersive experience, unencumbered by the distractions of everyday living.
Pritikin is the perfect venue for change – for looking inward, for determining exactly what you need and then getting it from Pritikin’s expert team of physicians, nutritionists, exercise physiologists, lifestyle-change psychologists, chefs, and other faculty.
You are in the company of high-achieving, like-minded individuals.
Since its inception in 1975, Pritikin has attracted guests who are leaders. U.S. Senators, award-winning authors, scientists, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, and Academy Award winners. It’s an exciting milieu. But most importantly, it’s a supportive one. At our dining room tables, conversations flow about everything from falling cholesterol levels to triumphs over diabetes. Bonds form. Friendships grow, and they last far beyond the time spent together at Pritikin.
You will appreciate Pritikin’s common-sense, no-gimmicks approach.
You will not be subjected to anything extreme like a raw food diet or a mere 800 calories per day. You won’t starve, not even close. The only thing extreme about the Pritikin Program is that it is extremely healthy. Pritikin’s focus is not dieting. It is helping you finding a non-diet approach to food that is both healthy and satisfying.
At Pritikin, you eat as much as want, and pretty much whenever you want. Every morning, you wake up to a banquet of breakfast choices – a beautiful array of fresh fruits, whole-grain cereals, savory egg-white omelets, and more. The bounty continues throughout the day. Dinner offerings include grilled bison, pasta primavera, slow-roasted salmon with fennel and citrus, Cajun-style red beans and rice, and even chocolate mousse.
Pritikin’s focus is flexibility. We meet you where you are, and help you progress toward a healthier life in a realistic and sustainable manner. We aim for progress, not perfection.
You will get results.
Other health retreats say they get results, but where’s the proof? Results on the Pritikin Program have been documented in more than 100 peer-reviewed studies. Tracking thousands who have come to the Pritikin Longevity Center, scientists from UCLA and other leading universities found that within 2 to 3 weeks, virtually every modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease improves. Cholesterol levels plummet. So do triglycerides, blood glucose, excess weight, high blood pressure, the metabolic syndrome, angina (chest pain), and inflammatory factors like C-reactive protein.
You will feel the results.
At Pritikin, each day begins with a burst of energy. Each day is a new opportunity to feel lighter, grow stronger. You start feeling what many people simply don’t realize they’re lacking – great health.
You will save hours of time and frustration.
It’s tough to make major lifestyle changes on your own. What’s the right thing to eat? What’s wrong? How do you avoid stresses that can sabotage your best-laid plans? What’s the optimal exercise plan? The safest? How do you stay motivated?
If you tackle all these hugely challenging issues on your own, you may succeed, but likely not. You’ve spent hours – days – making the effort, but with little to show for it. With the expert guidance at Pritikin, this time-wasting, stress-inducing process disappears. You sidestep the missteps and head straight for success. You leave with the confidence that you can in fact live healthier, and that it’s a lot easier than you ever thought possible.
You will save money.
Because your concierge physician is a Pritikin-certified partner, you will receive preferred rates at the Pritikin Longevity Center.
