Do you want to feel free from excess weight?

If I could make a single dietary recommendation to people looking to get healthier, it would be to move to a “plant-based” diet. It is awesome! It has enabled me to maintain my ideal weight for years, reduced my cholesterol with-out any medications plus my blood pressure is consistently in range.

Eating plants has been the best change I’ve made in my diet — and I’ve made a bunch of them, from intermittent fasting, to low-carb experiments, to eating 6 meals a day, to eating almost all protein, to eliminating sugar (all at various times). Plants have made me slimmer, healthier, stronger, more energetic — and have increased my life expectancy.

Of course, the diet is simple, but moving away from the Standard American Diet to a plant-based one isn’t always so simple. There are some pitfalls and since I have been living this plant-based life for many years, I have become an expert in my field. I have helped many people get past different health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol reduction, immunity imbalances, recovery from chemo, and weight problems. I see myself as an enlightened dietician recommending that people move toward “plant-based” diets to reduce disease risks and improve well-being.

What is a Plant-Based Diet?

The simple answer, of course, is that you eat plants. You eliminate animal proteins and fats and (eventually) animal products like dairy and eggs.

The less simple answer is there is an abundance of plant foods that most people never eat and eating a plant-based diet means you will widen the variety of foods you eat.

For example, some of my favorite foods include: tempeh, tofu, spinach, broccoli, quinoa, green beans, cabbage, ground flaxseeds, ground chia seeds, raw almonds and walnuts, raw almond butter, all kinds of berries, cranberries, avocados, tomatoes, lentils, pinto beans, spirulina, hemp seeds, nutritional yeast, organic soymilk, sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, apples, peaches, pineapple, garlic, green tea, brown rice, sprouted (flourless) bread, steel-cut oats.

In the past I never thought I could eat so many delicious complex carbs and lose weight and most importantly maintain my weight without ever struggling.  

The reality is you need to understand how to meal prep, to eat a variety of plants to meet your protein needs, to incorporate the balance of starchy vegetables mixed other vegetables, fruit servings plus how to eat nuts and seeds to reach your omega 3 fatty acids requirements and still lose weight.
