Dr. Joan Borysenko
Recorded January 20 - March 24, 2015
Go beyond fads and misinformation to discover the latest science for creating YOUR optimal diet – for improving your health, vitality, weight and
overall joie de vivre.
As a person on a conscious path of growth and empowerment, you no doubt recognize just how important food is for your health, energy – and even your state of mind – not to mention the well-being of communities around the world.
That’s why so many of us have attempted to create truly conscious, healthy, life-affirming diets in recent decades.
We’ve lowered our fat intake, cut carbs, tried to eat more raw, increased our protein, bought only organic, eliminated gluten... or adopted whatever the latest trend of the moment is that promises to be THE way to achieve health and happiness.
But the truth is that, in many cultures, our health has gotten much worse.
The next generation in the United States is projected to be the first in which lifespans actually decrease. We have rocketing rates of obesity, diabetes, cancers, heart disease, depression, anxiety and more.
Scientists have shown clearly that ALL of this is related to the kinds of foods we eat (or don’t eat), and yet, it has proven very, very hard to find that “One Right Diet” that works for everyone.
The newly emerging science shows us that this cookie-cutter approach to nutrition simply isn’t realistic. Some people thrive on a vegan low-fat diet while others compromise their health and put weight on rapidly. Some thrive on high-protein plans while others increase their risk for heart disease on that same diet.
The reason is that we are all beautifully unique and we all have DIFFERENT metabolic types. This means there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all diet that can benefit everyone.
So, if we just imitate our neighbor who eats all raw foods, and ignore the signals from our own body, we may very well diminish our vitality and well-being... not to mention increasing our odds of getting serious diseases.
The whole field of nutrition has frankly been a mess, with major agribusinesses creating distorted marketing, the latest authors promoting their get-slim-fast diet schemes, and others pushing everything from micronutrients to supplements.
It is very, very hard to know whom we can trust.
Our own doctors were often trained without a SINGLE class on nutrition in their medical education, despite how important it is to our health. So they often don’t have a clue as to what is truly healthy for you to eat – even while they valiantly attempt to treat diseases that are directly related to poor nutrition.
The stakes are simply too high for all of us to remain ignorant or keep experimenting with diets that prove to be too extreme, incomplete or not right for our individual bodies.
And yet, if you are like most of us, you don’t have the time to wade through the latest research studies and really understand how to create a diet that helps you to thrive.
A Top Expert You Can Trust
The good news is that Dr. Joan Borysenko is here to help you. She’s a Harvard trained pioneer of holistic health, as well as a New York Times bestselling author, who has devoted the last three years of her life to a full-time exploration of the latest science and holistic practices that are now – finally – converging on a real solution for optimizing your diet.
And that is a personalized nutrition plan that has foundational foods that are good for EVERYONE, certain foods to avoid that are harmful for all, and other foods that are tailored to the unique aspects of each person’s body and biochemistry.
Joan personally knows the suffering that comes from confusion around nutrition. She and her husband experienced the problems associated with one-size-fits-all fads: On a low-fat, near-vegan diet their health rapidly deteriorated. And then when they swung the other way to adopt a paleo diet, new health issues arose.
Wading through all the befuddling misinformation there was – even amongst respected experts – Joan realized it was time to get clear on the truth and create a nutrition program that was grounded in science, personalized and really worked.
As she learned how to do that, she rapidly improved the health of herself and that of her husband, including curing a lifetime of issues like fibromyalgia and migraines! And now that program is benefiting people around the world.
Joan has applied her extensive expertise and put in the long hours researching all this – so you don’t have to. She has separated fact from fiction and hype from reality.
Joan is one of the most trusted, respected and beloved pioneers in holistic health because she is fiercely committed to truth and deeply committed to service. She is passionate about the science AND she knows how important matters of psychology and spirituality are to our health as well.
She is someone you can trust to be on your health team.
A Healthier, Slimmer, More Vibrant You
After amassing a vast body of work and research and coming to some breakthrough conclusions, Joan decided to synthesize this work in her new book, The PlantPlus Diet Solution, which is winning rave reviews from people ranging from Dr. Andrew Weil to Dr. Larry Dossey.
And now, for the first time, she is offering an expanded virtual program that takes you systematically through these new frontiers of science and empowers you with coaching, support – and even recipes – to get your nutrition and your health on the right track.
The PlantPlus Nutrition Program is a 10-module state-of-the-art training in how to design and optimize your diet in a way that leads to a slimmer, healthier, and more vibrant body and a steady baseline of energy and vitality.
This program can help you avert disease, take off weight and minimize the toxins in your system from pesticides, GMOs, mercury and more.
Instead of just reading a book on your own (which research shows too often leads us to revert back to old habits), you’ll learn to make lasting changes in the way that people learn best – in a community of peers for support, guided by Joan’s expertise.
The PlantPlus Nutrition Program is designed for holistic, health-conscious people, ranging from those facing mysterious major illnesses to those who are troubled by their “wheat belly” or concerned about their kids eating too much junk.
It is a practical, hands-on application of science in a way that isn’t just brainy but is also fun and life-affirming. That’s because Joan recognizes that food is not just about fuel – she knows that for you to choose and sustain a diet that really works for your body, it requires that you experience more pleasure and enjoyment rather than feeling deprived.
So the PlantPlus Nutrition Program will also help you create a customized, healthy diet that you really love – one that tastes good and has just the right amount of decadence for you to thrive (you’ll LOVE her cookie recipes!).
And it will apply the latest understandings of mindfulness, meditation and psychological approaches to help you change your behavior around food and succeed in a more holistic way.
How You Will Benefit from This Journey
During the course of the 10 modules, you will have your eyes and mind opened to all of the things you need to know about healthy eating, as well as how to treat health issues that you may have unknowingly been contributing to through your dietary choices.
You will learn how to do a reboot of your system to better metabolize carbs (and lose fat). You’ll get the no-nonsense truth about how many carbs, fats, proteins you should be eating. And you’ll learn what to buy and what not to buy, how to cook your foods, and how to figure out how much raw is best for you.
Joan will also guide you to get the medical tests from your doctor or health provider to empower you in tailoring a personalized nutrition plan for unique body.
Additionally, you will receive Joan’s actual recipes for delicious things like cookies that don’t lead to weight gain or turn you into a low-energy couch potato!
In short, what you’ll receive by taking a 10-module journey with Dr. Joan Borysenko is the most essential information on health and nutrition – with clear guidelines, recommendations, tips and support for transforming your health and well-being.
We will be working our way through Joan’s celebrated new book, The PlantPlus Diet Solution (included with your tuition!), chapter by chapter, and building upon that information with practices, support and group exploration that allows you to really make significant positive changes.
Ultimately, this is a program that is about teaching you “to fish” rather than feeding you “the fish.” It’s literally about you creating an empowering relationship with food... and your health!
When you emerge, you will be well-versed in the latest science and savoring major shifts in your eating patterns that help you to feel strong, energized, healthy, happy – as well as experience more enjoyment of your food than you ever have.
What You’ll Learn in These 10 Modules
In this 10-module mastery class, Harvard-trained cellular biologist and psychologist, Joan Borysenko, will help you end diet confusion and get on the right nutrition program for your body. She will lead you through her acclaimed personalized nutrition program so that you understand the whys and hows of creating a delicious and satisfying diet that suits your own personal metabolism. You’ll get great information to make the New Year’s healthy eating resolutions a lasting success!
Each contemplation and training session will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to sustain your personalized diet for optimal health.
And, as part of this highly individualized training in how to create, enjoy and maintain the perfect diet for your metabolism and body type, you will receive a comprehensive e-book by Joan, The PlantPlus Diet Solution: Personalized Nutrition for Life. The cost of this groundbreaking publication is included in the course tuition, and you will have the opportunity to read – along with fellow participants – the chapters that will illuminate Joan’s teachings throughout the program. This will add to your understanding of the science behind each course session, and you’ll have this information to take on with you and review after you’ve completed the course.
Module 1: Preparing to Take the PlantPlus Plunge (Recorded January 20)
Research shows that discussing the material in a nutrition book as a series of classes – covering a portion of the book together each module – is one of the best ways to understand and integrate the material into your life.
In this first module, you’ll learn why America is the second fattest nation on Earth, and why we are 51st in life expectancy compared to 191 other nations worldwide. You will learn which tests to ask your doctor for so that you can assess your progress, plus learn how you can track progress yourself at home.
In this session, you’ll:
- Receive an opening meditation that sets you on the course to success
- Understand why the Standard American Diet (SAD) is creating an epidemic of chronic disease
- Learn how to assess your health and wellbeing before changing your diet
- Understand the best ways to track your progress
- Begin with instructions to quick-start your diet today, with PlantPlus Lite

Module 2: Your PlantPlus Reboot
(Recorded January 27)
In this session, Joan will cover the practical material needed to streamline your new PlantPlus kitchen and begin the Reboot – a 4-week jumpstart to better health. You will learn what to eliminate from your diet, what to add, and why.
In this session, you’ll learn:
- How to prepare your kitchen for easy PlantPlus cooking
- What’s on and off the 4-week Reboot menu
- Which foods to buy organic and which you can buy conventionally
- How to save money while eating well
Module 3: Psyching Out Cravings & Other Diet Busters (Recorded February 3)
The research is clear. It’s hard to change your diet – whether it’s for general health or weight loss. Ninety-five percent of people who lose weight regain it within a year, often with rebound pounds, and 99% regain it within 5 years. So what’s a body to do?
In this module, Joan puts on her health psychologist hat and explains how we can capitalize on the science of neuroplasticity to change our brain, outwit cravings and succeed in making healthful changes through mindfulness training and operant conditioning.
In this session, you’ll learn:
- How to apply the science of neuroplasticity to your own diet habits
- The most effective ways to reduce cravings
- The foundations of an effective mindfulness practice and how important it can be to your health
- The keys to applying the power of mindfulness to your nutrition program
Module 4: Avoiding the 5 Pillars of Dietary Doom (Recorded February 10)
Joan believes that if you have the right information – the real science behind diet – you will be empowered to make better choices. Why is it so important to eat a pound of vegetables (and some fruits) daily? Answer: to avert what Joan calls "the 5 pillars of dietary doom". You will learn how the Standard American Diet creates these health-destroying conditions in your body. You’ll also learn how the three macronutrients: fats, carbs and protein figure into health and weight loss.
In this session, you’ll learn:
- To understand and apply the science behind oxidative stress, inflammation, glycation, micronutrient insufficiency and dysbiosis (problems with your community of gut microbes) to elevate your health
- How to avoid the above problems through a PlantPlus Diet
- Why protein is a skinny food and why fat won’t make you fat
- About why it is vitally important to eat as organic as you can
Module 5: Fat: Friend or Foe? (Recorded February 17)
For the past 60 years, we’ve been taught that fat is a mortal enemy. The result of that campaign has been obesity and chronic illness ranging from diabetes to cancer, from neurological problems to autoimmune disease. Why is that? And, which fats are good for you and which fats are bad? We’ll take a look inside the fat and cholesterol wars and bring lipid science into the 21st century.
In this session, you’ll:
- Get the real “skinny” on fat and discover that it’s not all bad
- Learn how to recognize and use mainly beneficial fats
- Understand what makes bad fats bad and how to avoid them
- Dispel myths around cholesterol and develop a healthy relationship with it
Module 6: Forget High-Carb & Low-Carb Diets: Eat Carb-Reasonable for You! (Recorded February 24)
Some people can hardly pass a bakery without gaining weight, while others can eat all the carbs in the world and stay slim and healthy. Determining your own carb-tolerance is the first step in customizing your diet for your unique metabolism. You’ll learn how to do that, along with taking a look at gluten tolerance (and intolerance); insulin sensitivity and resistance; and how to deal with hunger if you’re already overweight.
In this session you’ll:
- Learn how to go beyond the extremes of limiting diets and eat a “carb-reasonable” diet tailored to your body
- Learn how to contrast the carbs in the Standard American Diet versus PlantPlus to create a balance that works for you
- Understand the relationship between leaky gut and gluten and how to maintain a diet that deters this symptom
- See how to prevent and treat metabolic syndrome, and learn what the repercussions are if you don’t!
Module 7: How Scientific is Science? An Introduction to Understanding Nutrition Research so That You Won’t be a Patsy (Recorded March 3)
Is eating an egg yolk really as bad as smoking a cigarette? Can meat or soy, dairy or grain kill you off? What we read in the media about diet is often hype. Most physicians can’t make heads or tails of which studies to believe either. So in this module, we’ll get smart and also learn about an important piece of research – The A to Z Study out of Stanford. It investigated diets differing in fat and carb content ranging from Atkins to Zone. And the biggest loser is....?
In this session you’ll:
- Develop a deeper understanding of the many types of scientific studies and how to approach them to get the truth
- Receive key principles for how to vet a scientific study for what you need to know
- Learn how to find resources on the Internet to aid your understanding of nutrition and diet as they pertain to your unique needs
- Receive the highlights of the findings of the A-to-Z diet personalization study and follow-up and learn how to apply them to your life
Module 8: The 3 Genomes &
Diet Personalization (Recorded March 10)
When the human genome was sequenced a decade ago, we didn’t realize that there were two additional genomes. The first of these is the epigenome (epi means above), which accounts for how environmental factors can either silence or activate the genes you inherit from mom and dad. Those factors range from hormones released by emotions to pesticides to micronutrients in the food we eat. The second additional genome (a whopping 99% of our genetic material) belongs to our gut microbes, which outnumber mammalian cells in our body 10 to 1. Learning more about this revolutionary material will give you a whole new outlook on diet.
In this session you’ll:
- Get deeper insight into your genetic code and how it clues you in to your best food choices
- Learn about whether genetic testing is necessary for diet personalization
- Better understand how to optimize your “epigenome” for a healthier, happier you
- Receive tips for feeding your gut microbes with what they need
Module 9: Choosing Ethical & Sustainable Foods (Recorded March 17)
Food guru Michael Pollan reminds us that “we eat whatever what we eat eats.” So, let’s optimize the foods we choose – from vegetables to meat and eggs to fruits, because, our choices can actually affect the way that food is raised. Are you choosing foods that promote sustainability for the Earth, our kids and our kids’ kids?
Another topic we’ll cover is Dr. Joan’s superfoods. Why are they good for you and how can you incorporate them into your easy-to-make PlantPlus meals?
In this session you’ll:
- Gain wisdom on how your food choices not only affect you but also how they affect environment
- Learn the ins and outs of shopping for organic foods and what you can trust
- Understand the science behind GMOs, the many health risks they pose for us and generations to come, and how to shop non-GMO
- Learn how to cook with Joan’s superfoods to create meals just right for your metabolism and body type
Module 10: PlantPlus Heaven (Recorded March 24)
In this final module, we’ll share our favorite PlantPlus recipes and what we’ve learned in our 10 modules together. We’ll review tips for staying on track with our individualized diets, and celebrate our big experiment in eating a diet personalized for our own metabolism.
In this session you’ll:
- Receive many of Joan’s favorite recipes and share your experience and learnings with other participants
- Celebrate successes and address difficulties in making shifts in your diet and lifestyle
- Receive helpful tips for continuing support in keeping on track with your new personalized diet
- Create honorable closure and a game plan for moving forward and continuing to support yourself and your health with your new optimal diet

Nutrition and Inner Beauty
Audio Dialogue with Joan and Jennifer Walton

More Praise for Joan Borysenko...
Joan Borysenko is a gift to all who know her and will take advantage of her teachings. She is a brilliant woman and so inspiring! I would love to take further courses with her – she is just wonderful!
– Gayle S.
Joan’s course and The Shift Network are an inspiration during very difficult times. They confirm what I am learning in my own spiritual practices and give hope and knowledge for the future. Joan’s humbleness and warmth made the course very special.
Such lively and deeply authentic conversations that inspired and touched my soul. Joan is amazingly down to earth with glowing compassion.
Joan provides meaningful, useful, and inspiring messages that deeply resonate with my True Self.
This seems a great way to offer courses. It is less expensive than traveling to see/hear Joan, I have seen/heard her before, so I didn’t mind the absence of her lovely face, it is easier for some to take an online course and Joan just has a way of making her presence very real and personal. This was just a great experience for me and hope she will offer more like these!
About Joan Borysenko, PhD. . .
Joan is a distinguished pioneer in integrative medicine and a world-renowned expert in the mind/body connection. Her work has been foundational in an international health-care revolution that recognizes the role of meaning and the spiritual dimensions of life, as integral parts of health and healing.
Eloquent and inspiring in settings that range from hospitals to hospices, from theaters to conference venues, and from boardrooms to houses of worship, she is a credible bridge between faith and reason. Her brilliance, humor and authenticity – in combination with the latest research – make her a compelling and inspiring teacher, speaker and writer.
After graduating magna cum laude from Bryn Mawr College in 1967, Dr. Borysenko earned her doctorate in Medical Sciences from the Harvard Medical School, where she completed postdoctoral training in cancer cell biology. Her first faculty position was at Tufts University College of Medicine in Boston.
But after the death of her father from cancer, she became more interested in the person with the illness than in the disease itself, and returned to Harvard Medical School to complete a second postdoctoral fellowship, this time in the new field of behavioral medicine. Under the tutelage of Herbert Benson, M.D., who first identified the relaxation response and brought meditation into medicine, she was awarded a Medical Foundation Fellowship and completed her third postdoctoral fellowship in psychoneuroimmunology.
In the early 1980s, Dr. Borysenko co-founded a Mind/Body clinic with Dr. Benson and Dr. Ilan Kutz, became licensed as a psychologist, and was appointed instructor in medicine at the Harvard Medical School. Her years of clinical experience and research culminated in the 1987 publication of the New York Times bestseller,Minding the Body, Mending the Mind, which sold over 400,000 copies. The 20th anniversary edition, newly revised, was published in 2007.
Author or co-author of 13 other books and numerous audio and video programs, including the public television special Inner Peace for Busy People, she is the founding partner of Mind/Body Health Sciences, LLC located in Boulder, Colorado, and the director of The Claritas Institute Interspiritual Mentor Training Program.
