Rochester Lifestyle Medicine Institute is dedicated to addressing the root causes of disease. Structural inequities and racism increase the risk of chronic illness and have contributed to poor health outcomes in communities of color. As medical providers and as human beings, we want to eradicate racism and the damage it causes. Our mission is to establish Lifestyle Medicine, especially the adoption of Whole-Food Plant-Based (WFPB) nutrition, as the foundation for health and the healthcare system – available to all.

Actually lost weight and feel great. K.C., June 2020 Medical Practitioner M.D.

I’m quite sure this will be life-changing for me. I can’t thank you enough. J.B., June 2020 Participant

Taught me a healthier way of eating. L.F., June 2020 Participant

It will give me a program to refer patients to that are highly motivated to treat or reverse disease with diet. J.J., June 2020 Medical Practitioner M.D.

This program is shorter and less expensive (than others). I have seen the amazing results. C.T., June 2020 Medical Practitioner M.D.

A refresher indeed. I’m enjoying it. Resources for the program are extensive and very good. A.B, July 2020 Medical Practitioner

Changed my life forever. Also, I want to reiterate that for literally years I’ve had GI issues, and this has put those to rest once and for all. R.K., June 2020 Participant

I learned that it is possible to lower fat intake and not feel hungry. As a physician I am glad I had a chance to experience this program to get insight about what people go through and also how a program like this can be run. B.D., June 2020 Medical Practitioner M.D.

I did this program back in March. My cholesterol dropped by 67 points and I’m eating this way, have lost weight, gained energy and lowered my blood sugar levels too. Highly recommend! C.M., March 2020 Participant

Huge impact! I lost 10 lbs, I sleep through the entire night, I feel brighter, my skin is clearer, I have less anxiety. It’s been nothing but up and up and in only 2 weeks it’s been more radical than any “diet” I’ve ever tried. I will definitely be continuing! T.R., June 2020 Participant

For years I tried diet after diet only to feel hungry, discouraged and depressed about failing and not being able to maintain the strict regimen. This program was not hard. I ate all the veggies I wanted and did not feel guilty. I felt full all the time. I never missed meat or craved it like other programs where you can only eat this or that. It was really great. V.H., June 2020 Participant

I found out that two weeks was a piece of cake. I wasn’t craving anything during the two weeks. A.O., July 2020 Participant

I had more energy after three days! It helped me lose that last couple pounds. A.M., July 2020 Participant

Feels like a new lease on life & health. S.B., July 2020 Participant

I found it to be easier than I expected. I feel better about myself and the choices I am making about my diet. J.M., July 2020 Participant

I have been looking for something like this to assist with weight loss and overall health improvement. This is an approach that really works for me. A.S., July 2020 Participant

I thought that the RLM jumpstart program was excellent in all respects and my colleagues who attended also really appreciated all that you have to offer. R.B., July 2020 Medical Practitioner M.D.

I had the opportunity to participate in your Jumpstart program.  I was extremely impressed with the program. M.S., July 2020 Medical Practitioner M.D.
