Last spring, after watching several eye-opening documentaries, including Forks Over Knives, and reading The China Study, I immediately changed my diet (Thanks Chad!). By this point, I was eating a vegetarian diet, but still supplementing with whey protein powder. Although my meals consisted of some vegetables, I was eating some processed mock meats, bean burgers, oil and other unhealthy snack foods.
Extensive research has proven that many, if not all, degenerative diseases can be controlled and in some cases, even reversed by adopting a whole-foods, plant-based diet. I could only wonder: if diet could reverse disease, what could it do for a seemingly healthy person? So what has changed? In addition to a reduction of body fat and lean muscle gains, I no longer experience acid reflux or menstrual cramps. My skin is the best it has ever been. My hair grows quickly and is strong. I feel AMAZING. This is what it did!
