You see, about seven years ago, I gained 20 pounds, had no energy, and suffered from terrible stress and anxiety.
I finally went to see my doctor and was told, “You are fine, everything is in normal range”.
I told my doctor that "if something doesn't change, I'm likely going to die by the time I'm 65. This is not going to work.”
I knew I had to make some major shifts in my life, but I enjoyed my comfort food.
That's when I decided to seriously commit to a whole foods, plant-based diet, and choose to take control of my food.
In a world where we feel like we have lost control, we can control what we eat. After seven years, I have thrived by making a simple, yet significant shift in my diet and lifestyle. Knowing what to eat and how to fuel my body made all the difference.
Today I feel great! I exercise 3-4 times a week and get at least 7-8 hours of sleep.
I’ve discovered what my food and stress triggers are for weight gain, bloating, stress and anxiety, so I’m able to avoid them.
The results were so transformative, I spent the next several years researching the healing properties of plants and how food can cure many of today’s chronic health issues.
But something continued to puzzle me.
I kept thinking, "if changing to a whole foods plant based diet can drastically improve health and quality of life, why don’t more people eat plant based?"
And now I wonder, "how can more people eat plant based to boost their immune system, and reduce stress for the world we live in today?"
Once I had sorted out my own health challenges, I started to dig deeper into why others were not embracing nutrition and a plant-based diet to support their body in feeling better. What I learned astonished me.
About 2/3 of the people who have attempted to eat a plant-based diet quit, because of the misinformation that is often given about food.
It's because of these misconceptions that I created "The Art of Eating: Building A Strong and Resilient You"
With correct guidance, massive health improvements can be experienced.
