Common Questions

What else do I eat? 

Step One’s foods were created to make switching to a more whole-food plant-based eating approach easy and convenient. Our clinical trial participants saw cholesterol reduction in just 30 days by substituting two servings of Step One Foods for something they would normally eat. No other dietary or lifestyle changes are required to start seeing results. However, Step One Foods was named ‘Step One’ because it is our hope that this healthy decision will lead to other healthy choices. 

Dr. Klodas writes a weekly blog that is full of information to help you live your healthiest life! Here are a couple of blogs that are a great place to start: 

Will I lose weight? 

Many of our customers will experience weight loss while using Step One. Step One Foods are highly nutritious and very satisfying. High fiber content, complex carbohydrates and healthful fats ensure slow digestion and steady blood sugar levels, keeping you feeling fuller longer. Our foods are also meant to be used as a substitution for something you were eating before which typically represents a calorie reduction.

What if I don't have results with Step One Foods? 

Unfortunately, not everyone is a food responder. Step One Foods conducted a clinical trial to test our products and we found that About 2/3rds of people achieved clinically meaningful cholesterol reductions. This is actually similar to what is seen with most drug trials – about 1/3 of people don’t respond or even have an opposite response to a medication being tested. 

But what’s different about a drug non-response is that all you’re left with are potential side effects. With Step One, even if you don’t have a cholesterol response, all you get are potential side benefits. There is far more to heart health – and outcomes - than just cholesterol. For example, adding in 10 grams of whole food fiber per day (the amount present in 2 servings of Step One) reduces the risk of experiencing a heart event by 14% and the risk of dying from heart disease by 24%.
