Learn how to enhance your overall wellbeing through clean eating. Those who choose to eat cleanly benefit from sustainable energy, high quality sleep, physical strength and mental sharpness. Clean eating has a significant impact on wellbeing, so much so that I've made it the foundation of my recently-launched web series, called Thrive Forward: www.thriveforward.com. Topics will include: 1- Add vs. Subtract: How to make changes to your diet without shocking your system. 2- Listen to Your Body: How to recognize cleansing symptoms. 3- How to consume enough nutrients to support your activity level. 4- The truth about processed foods, and why you should avoid them. 5- How to gain energy through nourishment, not stimulation. 6- High-net gain foods: what are they and how you can benefit from them.
Learn how to boost mental and physical performance on a plant-based nutrition program. Based on the international bestseller "Thrive," I'll be talking on a few topics for half the session and the other half of the session will be for Q&A and interacting in the virtual class. You can find Thrive at http://lrnit.lv/thrive-book Topics will include: - High net gain nutrition: what it is and how you can benefits from it - Biological debt: what it is, why it's rampant in North america, and how to ensure you're not a victim - Boost energy holistically, without stimulants - Enhance sleep quality (and therefore reduce amount of sleep needed to function at your best) - Reduce recovery time needed between workout and therefore improve athletic performance - Building a biologically younger body: how you can do it - Alkaline-forming nutrition: How you can ensure what you eat will enhance your body's efficiency and conserve energy with every move - How to enhance mental clarity and improve focus and productivity

Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., received his B.A. from Yale University and his M.D. from Western Reserve University. In 1956, pulling the No. 6 oar as a member of the victorious United States rowing team, he was awarded a gold medal at the Olympic Games. He was trained as a surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic and at St. George's Hospital in London. In 1968, as an Army surgeon in Vietnam, he was awarded the Bronze Star. His scientific publications number over 150, "The Best Doctors in America" 1994-1995 published by Woodward and White cites Dr. Esselstyn's surgical expertise in the categories of endocrine and breast disease. In 1995 he published his bench mark long-term nutritional research arresting and reversing coronary artery disease in severely ill patients. That same study was updated at 12 years and reviewed beyond twenty years in his book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, making it one of the longest longitudinal studies of its type. It is most compelling, as no compliant patients have sustained disease progression. Today, beyond 20 years compliant patients continue to thrive.
