Why refer patients to us?
Simply put, our program provides the clinical interaction necessary to achieve and maintain long-term behavior change. We partner with physicians to help patients safely reverse prediabetes, lose weight, and build the skills and confidence to stick with a healthy lifestyle.
6-Week Program: How It Works
- Two weeks of education on an array of topics including the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes, the evidence for a plant-based eating pattern in the prevention of disease, building a social support system, establishing new habits, cooking, shopping, eating out, and more.
- Four weeks of guided diet change. During this phase, the patient is closely supported by a dedicated staff. Through regular check-ins, we help the patient overcome challenges and build self-efficacy. Additionally, the patient also meets with our Registered Dietitians to discuss individual nutrition questions and concerns.
Every aspect of Nutrinic LIPPD is based on the latest nutrition & behavior change research.

Nutrinic LIPPD is evidence-based
Population studies show that those who eat the most plant foods have the lowest rates of type 2 diabetes. Clinical trials using whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables support the hypothesis that the fiber, nutrient, and phytochemical content of these foods improves insulin sensitivity, lowers blood glucose levels, and makes weight loss easier. For more, please see the Plant-Based Diets: A Physician’s Guide published in the The Permanente Journal.
Most patients with prediabetes are told to eat better, but not given the resources or support to actually do it. Using the strategies outlined in the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology Guidelines, we fill this critical gap and teach the skill acquisition for long-term success. These, and other methods, are incorporated directly into our curriculum: Self-efficacy enhancement, reinforcement, social support, and tailoring the regimen.
