"I lost 150 pounds and have kept it off for almost 5 years now.

The Protein-Combining Myth

The Protein-Combining Myth

by laura dietrich October 06, 2017

Recently, my daughter received all of her textbooks before heading off to college this fall.  A required class for first year students is Health.  She started reading through the book and was surprised that they said to approach a plant-based diet with ‘caution’ because you had to watch your nutrients very closely.  They also referred to the “importance of combining vegetarian proteins during a meal to get a complete protein.”  The amazing thing is that this book was published in 2015!

"Less than a year ago, at the age of 49, I was well into my second year of suffering from angina, shortness of breath, and fatigue. I used the maximum dose of nitroglycerin daily to help with the chest pain, but it didn’t improve my exercise tolerance and I was extremely limited in my day to day activities. A trip to the grocery store would require most of a day to recover from..."

"Hi, My name is Karen and I am 63 years old. My story starts in 2013. I had high blood pressure and had a hard time finding meds I could tolerate. I was at my highest weight,167lbs. All my life I have yoyo'd up and down as much as 25-30 lbs. always to gain it back yet again. I read Joel Furmans' Eat to Live and thought, well I'll give it a try for a month, can't hurt. During that month I also started to educate myself."

Annette Fowler's Plant-Based Transformation Story

by BOLD SUPPORT August 22, 2017

"My name is Annette Fowler. I have struggled with my weight from the age of 13. I was led to believe that an obese life was my destiny. With that belief, I never truly tried to lose weight, as I thought it was not a possibility for me. I spent my teen years steadily growing through the high 100s. The last weight I remember being was 167lbs when I was in grade 10. After that, I never really weighed myself unless I went to the Dr's, and even then, the weight was recorded and never mentioned...
