What is WFPB?
A Whole-Food, Plant-Based diet is centered on whole, unrefined, or minimally refined plants. It’s a diet based on fruits, vegetables, tubers, whole grains, and legumes; and it excludes or minimizes meat (including chicken and fish), dairy products, and eggs, as well as highly refined foods like bleached flour, refined sugar, and oil.

THE KEY TO WEIGHT LOSS:
CALORIE DENSITY

Chef AJ explains how to lose weight by focusing on high-volume, low-calorie,

nutrient-dense, whole, plant-based foods.
(start at 1:30)

PLANT-BASED ON A BUDGET

Just $4.15/day...
That's the average per-person benefit for a family of two on a SNAP budget. (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)
SNAP is only meant to supplement daily meals, NOT cover all food needed in a day.
By focusing on whole plant foods, you can easily eat 3 delicious meals + a snack on <$4/day, while also exceeding the RDA nutrition guidelines and never feel hungry!

COOKING WITHOUT OIL

Oil is one of the most highly processed foods on the planet.
Blood flow is constricted by 32% every time you consume it. 
This injures endothelial cells (the cells that line the interior walls of blood vessels) and triggers plaque build-up (atherosclerosis). 
At ~120 calories per tablespoon, it can also be problematic if watching your weight.
Good news - Cooking without it is easy! 
Check out the video below to learn how.
