Our journey started with looking for a true solution for losing weight and keeping it off. We were lost, confused about which diet to try, and did not know what to do. My weight reached a high 235 lbs, and my wife’s weight reached 229 lbs. The peach cobbler with 2 scoops of ice cream every night and a case of sodas every week began to take its toll on our health. Let us not forget all the hamburgers, BBQ ribs, fried chicken, and seafood that were the main staples of our dietary lifestyle.
Slowly but surely, early signs of chronic diseases started to surface for us like hypertension (early signs of heart disease), continual weight gain, and very low energy levels. Both of us had several family members who suffered or died from heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and various cancers. So we knew we had to do something different in order to get something different.
In the process of searching for a solution to our weight and hypertension problems, we discovered something very significant; the food we ate directly affected our health. In May 2015, our journey toward optimal health led us to a Whole Food Plant Based (WFPB) Lifestyle. Within a very brief period, we experienced dramatic weight loss, normal blood pressures, increased energy, and vitality. Not only were we excited about the immediate benefits of a WFPB lifestyle, but the fact that our entire family, which includes our three children ages 4 through 9 could also thrive, grow, and benefit from this stainable lifestyle with no health repercussions.
In the two years after adopting a WFPB lifestyle, my wife and I lost over 100 and 89 pounds respectively. Not only did we lose the weight, but also we have kept it off and have gained our Life back.
