There are so many good things we could say about CHIP, but maybe it will be more convincing hearing it from the participants themselves.
"I really did not think this is the way that I was going to feel. I was questioning the program, but I listened to what you told me and read the book and followed how to start. It is amazing. I have told people but I do not know if they get it. They asked how do you get protein, how do you get calcium, are you really getting enough fats. I am able to just tell them I am getting everything. That my lifestyle is very healthy now and I am so proud of the direction my life is going.”
"As CHIP facilitators, you have been helpful/supportive in every way. You’ve been so willing to answer our questions and address concerns even by offering demonstrations. Your enthusiasm for CHIP and our success is wonderful!
I have been able to find more foods that are comforting to my digestion. I no longer worry about what will or will not sit well in my stomach. I am far more informed about why I would want to choose certain foods for my overall health. The recipes have given me easier ways to sustain my daily goals.
I’m very pleased with the experience, my results, and my personal and food relationships!"
"No more Pepsi—empty calories. Doing more exercise—feeling better with more energy.
Surprised that I’m enjoying eating plant based and feeling full and satisfied. Also surprised I’m finding a nice variety."
"[Slept] three nights without getting up. No longer have any food cravings for salt/sweets. Can no longer handle eating any ‘junk’ food—sweets or greasy fried foods."
“I am really excited about this way of eating and truly believe in it! It’s really amazing to see my cholesterol go down by 51. Young people need to hear about this so they can most-likely avoid disease. At nearly 67, I want to continue to eat the CHIP way, but I wish I had started years ago. It still can help! Thank you for this class! Please continue what you are doing.”
