I was extremely overweight (see photo) and knew I wanted to make changes. I began with 'common dietary advice' which was not WFPB. I lost some weight, but then I went through a 'dark time' including heavy drinking- starving myself and drinking instead...nutrient-depleted, etc., loss of love, legal troubles as a result, (Rich Roll was a huge inspiration for some of these relatable concepts) and I thankfully came out on the other side finding Plant-Based documentaries and literature. (My friend Dixie was a huge driving force in this, thank you Dixie!)
Since going WFPB (now fully for > two years), I have morphed my body from an unhealthy 265 lbs to a current 163 chiseled and HEALTHY!
