The class is intended for those beginning to change eating habits, for those who need to review a low-cholesterol eating plan or for those who need a push to get on track.
During the class, a dietitian will evaluate the participants current eating pattern. A plan for putting the recommendations into practice will be developed according to the individuals needs. Participants receive written materials explaining the eating plan as well as some recipes to try at home.
