When I learned the science behind a whole-food, plant-based diet, it just made sense to me. The data invariably points to the same conclusion: People around the world who eat more whole plant foods and less animal-based products such as meat and cheese tend to be healthier overall. That provided a clear path in my mind to switch to eating whole, plant-based foods. Even with all the evidence, I'll admit I was a bit skeptical about whether all of the benefits achieved by others would actually work for me. I believed there was no way I was going to feel full and that I certainly would never enjoy the taste or flavours of a diet based mostly on plant foods. To me, a plant-based diet meant gnawing on a raw head of cabbage or a sack of carrots. Basically, eating like a rabbit! I could not have been more wrong. A new world of delicious, filling and healthy plant-based meals opened up before me. Within the first day, I felt different...much better. I was cautiously optimistic it would continue. The weight started coming off, I had more energy, and longtime aches and pains simply disappeared. I was convinced.

I took this to heart and began my plant-based journey after months of researching the best diets for optimum health and longevity. Also, my family medical history indicated the potential of future health issues and Diabetes, I wanted no part of. I needed to find a lifestyle I could maintain that served and energized my health and long-term well-being. I had reached the most important tipping point of my life and knew, beyond a doubt, that I needed an almost drastic lifestyle change that included eating more plants.

The first six weeks began with a plan that included giving up all animal-based foods (meat, fowl, fish, eggs, and dairy). The first thing I noticed was that the chronic pains I had struggled with for many years were gone. I felt an increase in mental clarity and slept better within the first week. By the end of the second week, I had tons of happy energy and started losing weight. At the end of the plan, the was no doubt. I wanted to continue with the delicious fresh foods I now enjoyed prepping and eating. At the end of six weeks, I had dropped a significant number of pounds and was finally living at a healthy, sustainable weight and feeling fantastic about how I looked and felt.

RESTALLING


TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.
