For 30 years I did not eat one vegetable. My parents tried all kinds of tricks to get me to eat them, but I wouldn't do it. Who knew I would grow up to embrace a lifestyle eating raw and living foods consisting mostly of fruits and vegetables?!
My journey began over 6 years ago when, in my late 20's, I was diagnosed with several severe conditions. I had gone to the doctor for a routine check up because I notice my heart was racing even while resting. It turns out I had high blood pressure and was on my way to heart disease. I was also pre-diabetic and had weak kidneys and a leaky gut. Hearing that news got my attention.
Gradually I made dietary and lifestyle changes, began juicing, and detoxified my body. I was always a body builder, but I lost 75 lbs of fat and re-built my body on plants--mostly fruits and superfoods.
Most people ask me where I get my protein. The answer: Plants. The plant kingdom has everything we need. I'm living proof.
