McDougall Healthy Employee Immersion Program
The average total healthcare costs per employee are expected

period. Medication usage was reduced and/or eliminated. The
medical benefits achieved can be described as no less than
miracles. Based on the health claims data of Blue Cross/Blue
Shield, we documented an average reduction in costs of 44% for
each of the three groups.

CEO of this highly successful supermarket chain, reported
substantial savings for his company from the McDougall
Immersion, and various other programs, designed to change the
diets of their employees. He predicted that because of this
success, acceptance of similar programs would soon ripple across
