The Whole Food, Plant-Based (WFPB) Diet

  • Reverses heart disease (America's #1 killer)
  • Prevents/treats/reverse diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and more

What have my patients said about the Whole Food, Plant-Based diet?

"The whole food, plant-based diet is almost too good to be true... why isn't everyone eating this way?" 

"I thought this diet was just eating salads. I was wrong. I actually really like the food. I have lost 4" from my waist and 4 dress sizes in 4 months and this was the first diet where I never felt deprived" 

"When I started on this diet, I realized I don't even like meat. I actually prefer plants. I was just eating meat out of habit."

The next question I typically get is...

Is this the same as a Vegan Diet?


A vegan diet is described by what one does not eat- no animal meats or animal products (dairy, eggs, honey, etc.). However the WFPB diet is described by what it does include- whole, plant foods- lots of vegetables, fruits, beans, lentils, whole grains and nuts and seeds. It also minimizes the intake of processed foods (fried food, chips, candies, pastries, cookies, fast food, oil, etc.), meat and animal products. 

For example,

Beer and French Fries

meet the criteria for a vegan diet, however

would be minimized in a WFPB diet

"Your class made a big impact on my life. Thank you."


"I feel great about the changes I have made to my diet because I know it will lead to a healthier me."

Krystal’s nutrition class was exactly what I was looking for and more. My goal in taking her class was to improve on a what I thought was a good diet. I wanted to lose weight and maintain it. I was also concerned about disease as I aged.

Before I started the class, I did not realize that she was encouraging a whole food plant based diet. However, her knowledge and information convinced me that this is the best diet for me. Krystal’s class was relaxed, fun, informative, and interactive. She was very encouraging and nonjudgmental. Her philosophies on how to transition to a whole food plant based diet were instrumental in my progress.

As a result of Krystal’s class, I now eat about a 95% plant based diet. I have lost weight and have no problem keeping it off. I have more energy and I feel great about the changes I have made to my diet because I know it will lead to a healthier me. Krystal’s class made a big impact on my life.
I highly recommend taking Krystal’s class. She is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.


"...I was able to bring down my blood glucose levels to a safe range during the course of the class."

I enjoyed Krystal’s nutrition program – it was well-organized and although backed by scientific detail, was easy to understand.

I learned a lot about a Whole-Food Plant-Based (WFPB) diet and Krystal provided guidance on how to get started and items to consider (e.g., the Dirty Dozen and pesticides in produce) when putting together a meal. I enrolled in hopes of controlling my Type 2 diabetes. Combined with intermittent fasting and exercise, I was able to bring down my blood glucose levels to a safe range during the course of the class.

Many in the class were focused on weight loss and they all had made good progress by the end of the course. I was focused on lean muscle mass and Krystal provided advice on getting sufficient protein during strength training. Getting that kind of personalized advice was a big benefit of being in class. I would highly recommend taking Krystal’s course.
