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

1. Nutrition

The nutritional focus of the Pritikin Program is not elements like carbs or fat. Our focus is food, healthy food like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and seafood. Nothing we recommend is extreme, except that our recommendations are extremely healthy.

The doctors, scientists, and registered dietitians of the Pritikin Longevity Center base their nutrition recommendations for the Pritikin Program on a huge body of research showing that our health improves quickly and dramatically when we eat the foods our bodies are biologically designed to eat.

The fact is, our 21st century diet, high in salt, sugar, and saturated-fat-rich foods like cheeseburgers and fries, is killing us because it’s so drastically different from the food our ancestors ate for hundreds of thousands of years.

Our ancestors’ diets consisted of a lot of very high-in-fiber vegetables and fruits, some nuts, and for most, some seafood and/or very lean meat. This is the diet our human digestive systems evolved on. This is the diet we’re designed to eat.

Since our 21st century diet is very new in evolutionary terms, just 100 years old, our bodies haven’t had any chance to adapt to it. What we have, then, is a mismatch between what we ate as we evolved and the food we eat now, and the sad result is many of our modern health problems, including dangerously high blood pressure, soaring blood sugar levels, high cholesterol, and heart attacks.

But we also have the ability to get well real fast, as numerous studies on the Pritikin Program have shown. That’s the gift of feeding your body the right fuel.
