I have always been an active person both in the gym, playing sports, and for most of my life I was under the assumption my diet was healthy. I was counting calories, restricted my carbs, I tried keto, I ate leaner meat, got plenty of exercise and sleep and every other thing someone told me would work.
Through all this however, like many others, I struggled to lose any weight and improve my physique and health problems. No problems were severe YET, but still at the age of 28 my weight, cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure and thyroid were all elevating just to name a few.
The secret? Well, there is no secret, and the topic is just so confusing and overwhelming, it is nearly impossible for the average person to find true help on the subject.
I continued to pursue the subject and started to get down to science instead of listening to the YouTubers and that is why I am writing these articles.
I found a way to eat that has me feeling better, flatlined all my elevated levels, helped me lose good weight, and from what the studies say, is a consensus on a long-term lifestyle that is so delicious.
I follow a whole food plant-based diet although I hesitate to call it a diet and more of a lifestyle change.
That said, I am not here to tell everyone they need to do what I do, and all their problems will be solved.
What I will say is that the miracle stories of fad diets typically die within a few years because they are not sustainable.
I am here to outline some of the facts from clinical trials that have been performed by scientists and limit influence from big business, and yes this includes vegan big business.
I hope that there will be some people willing to be open to some new ideas and approaches and find a sustainable eating pattern for them that also helps turn their life around.
Join me on this journey and let’s grow to be better people together.
