Food for life diabetes initiative.


Join us,

Canan Orhun and Didem Varol for a 4-class webinar series that explores

how a whole-foods, plant-based diet can not only prevent type 2 diabetes

but can also help manage the disease and, in some cases, lead to remission from the disease.

We explain the science behind how a whole-foods plant-based diet works.

We also provide practical tips on how to make the healthy choice

the delicious and easy choice for the long-term!

This series will feature:

  • Step-by-step methods for using diet changes to control diabetes 
  • Recipes, meal plans, and shopping tips
  • Inspiring testimonials and success stories
  • And more!

This is part of the “Food for Life” program, a world-renowned nutrition education program designed by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

We are also fortunate to have the support of Plant Based Health Professionals UK

for the promotion of the program.

Why Food For Life

Diabetes is on the rise everywhere and Turkey is no exception.

Yet many people are unaware that type 2 diabetes is largely a disease of over-nutrition and sedentary lifestyles. 

Our program aims to show you that type 2 diabetes can be prevented, and complications can often be avoided or treated with a change in lifestyle. 

Who should  join

Anyone can register but the program is targeted towards Turkish speaking adults located in Turkey or

abroad who currently have type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, a family history, or risk factors for developing diabetes. In addition,

we welcome Turkish health care professionals who want to learn the basics of plant-based nutrition for preventing and treating diabetes.  

The program will be delivered simultaneously in English & Turkish.

Also you can read our article Preventing & Reversing Type2 Diabetes: 3 Simple Steps


This program will be delivered online.

A zoom link will be sent to registered participants.

The program will be live on the given dates and times,

it will not be recorded.
