Health / Program
Step One Foods products were developed by a cardiologist and have proven effective through a clinical trial subject to the same standards as a pharmaceutical clinical trial. Every serving of Step One Foods contains the precise levels of key nutrients proven to help lower cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health. Learn more about our clinical trial here.
Our snacks and meals are designed to fit easily into your everyday life. Just eat two servings a day of your favorite Step One Foods products as a substitute for something you’re eating now. No additional dietary changes or daily workouts are required!
Studies have shown that a change in diet can yield a significant impact on cholesterol levels in as little as 30 days. Effects on overall blood sugar control and weight will take longer.
No, if you are currently prescribed a statin by your physician, you should not discontinue it unless you consult with them. To most accurately assess how Step One Foods is impacting your cholesterol, you should take your statin in conjunction with Step One Foods twice per day. After 30 days of consistent use, you can test your cholesterol levels; if there is improvement (or even similar readings) you and your healthcare provider can discuss adjusting your prescription.
Step One Foods products are highly nutritious and very satisfying. High fiber content, complex carbohydrates and healthful fats ensure slow digestion and lower, steadier 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 and may lead to weight loss. And nearly all Step One Foods contain minimal to no sodium. Studies have shown that when you reduce sodium consumption and increase the intake of antioxidants from fruits and vegetables, you can attain significant blood pressure reductions.
Step One Foods products are made with all-natural ingredients that have each been documented to have general health-promoting properties. They would be considered appropriate for anyone trying to improve their heart health or overall well-being.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, we recommend you consult with your healthcare professional to determine if products designed to lower cholesterol are appropriate for you. Although plant sterols are felt to be safe for general consumption, studies of intentional cholesterol lowering (using food, plant sterols or medications) have not been carried out in pregnant/lactating women or infants/young children. If you have any additional questions, please contact Step One Foods via our customer support email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (952) 303-4265 to speak with one of our experts.
We want to help you change your health through food that you love to eat. So we make Step One Foods products with the finest whole-food ingredients - like the highest quality Belgian chocolate, walnuts, almonds and pecans – and we leave out the additives, preservatives, chemicals and various isolates. We offer a variety of products to ensure you can find favorite options that taste great to you. We think you’re going to love the taste of real food packed with real nutrients (so much so, all of our products are satisfaction-guaranteed!).
All the products are equivalent in terms of providing clinically meaningful amounts of whole food fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and plant sterols. And all are presented in single-serve portions. So for all intents and purposes, all the foods are interchangeable. There are differences in taste and texture as well as whether minimal or no preparation is required. This is to ensure you can find products that best fit your lifestyle.
Step One Foods products are made exclusively with certified gluten free and non-GMO ingredients. All Step One Foods products contain tree nuts. The Pancake Mix contains egg whites. The Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar contains peanuts.
Step One Foods products are a premium brand of foods formulated specifically to support cardiovascular disease care and prevention. As such, they are not typical of foods available in retail/grocery stores and are only available online at steponefoods.com.
We want you to be happy with our products and your results. If you don't enjoy one or more of your choices, we will gladly provide you with an exchange or a refund. Our guarantee applies to first time orders, or up to one month's worth of food cost.
If you do not experience a cholesterol response, we will refund what you paid for the products, up to one month's worth of foods. But remember, there is much more to health than a cholesterol number. For example, studies have shown that increasing fiber intake by 10 grams per day on a consistent basis (the amount of fiber provided by 2 servings of Step One Foods products), is associated with a 14% reduction in the occurrence of heart events and a 27% reduction in the risk of dying from heart disease. So even if you don't see a significant cholesterol change, you will still have benefited from an overall health perspective by eating better.

We are dedicated to ensuring you’re satisfied with your Step One Foods experience and our team will kindly walk you through the process of a refund or exchange.

Yes, there’s a simple solution that we’ve found works great! Simply place your chocolate products in the fridge for about an hour once you receive your delivery. Once cooled, the chocolate should return to its normal texture and consistency and there will be no change to the nutritional content of the products! Many of our customers actually prefer their bars chilled.
We do offer additional shipping precautions including an insulated mailer and ice packets for an additional shipping cost of $12. This cost is purely for the materials. Shipping products with additional heat precautions can add up to 1-2 business days of processing time to an order.

The Starter Pack is a popular option for customers as it contains a variety of our products and a full month’s supply of Step One. Occasionally, we will change what products are in the Starter Pack due to product availability and customer preferences. If you become a Plan Member and subscribe to recurring deliveries of the Starter Pack, you’ll receive the variation of the Starter Pack that is currently live on the website. This means that your recurring order could change occasionally.
