Fascinating information about CHIP, the Complete Health Improvement Program...

The Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP) is a premier lifestyle intervention targeting chronic disease that has been offered for more than 25 years. The intervention has been used in clinical, corporate, and community settings, and the short-term and long-term clinical benefits of the intervention, as well as its cost-effectiveness, have been documented in more than 25 peer-reviewed publications. Being an easily administered intervention, CHIP has been presented not only by health professionals but also by non-health-trained volunteers. The benefits of the program have been extensively studied under these 2 delivery channels, consistently demonstrating positive outcomes.

Dr. Greger: "Look at these numbers for those that came in—the worst of the worst—and finished all the videos: 20-point drop in blood pressures, 40-point drop in LDL, more than a 500-point drop in triglycerides. Of those that came in with diabetic-level fasting blood sugars, about one in three left with non-diabetic-level fasting blood sugars, and all they did was empower people with knowledge. Just encouraging people to move toward a whole food, plant-based diet led to these remarkable benefits.

(.....) Even though they were explicitly told to eat as much as they wanted—no calorie or carb counting, no portion control—just by being informed about the benefits of centering their diets more around whole plant foods, by the end of the six-week program, they were eating, on average, about 339 fewer calories a day without even trying. Instead of eating less food, they were just eating healthier food.

Okay. But, this was right at the end of the 6-week program, when they were all jazzed up. Where were they 18 months later? Anyone familiar with weight-loss studies knows how this works; you can excite anyone in the short-term to lose weight, using practically any kind of diet. But then, six months later, a year later, they tend to gain it all back, or even more. Yeah, they were eating about 300 calories less a day during the program, but 18 months later, were only eating about 400 calories less. Wait, what kind of diet can work even better the longer you do it? A whole food, plant-based diet."
