My GBOMBS Potato Challenge

I was always interested in doing a potato challenge, ever since I heard my friend Andrew "Spud Fit" Taylor did one to get healthy. In the process, Andrew lost a total of 115 pounds. He also reversed the depression he was dealing with prior to his challenge.

I recently had the opportunity to talk with Andrew about his potato challenge. I learned why he did it and what it accomplished. The whole point of the potato challenge for Andrew was to take the thought out of food. It was a way to remove additions to food. Instead of having to think of what to eat everyday, he could focus on other areas of his life.

Dr. Fuhrman Interview: How To Stay Healthy

Recently, my friend Rob Lee and I had the opportunity to interview Dr. Joel Fuhrman. Originally, the topic was supposed to be about mental health but with all that's going on with the COVID-19 virus, I felt some questions were needed on the subject.

While I do agree with Dr. Fuhrman that the best way to protect yourself is with a whole food plant based diet, I want to stress it's still important to social distance. Although most people will recover fro it, you don't want to be a carrier. Wait until the authorities say it’s safe before you go back to your usual activities. I would hate to be a carrier and think I might contaminate someone else. We didn’t stress this enough in the video but it’s important to remember.

The Why That Keeps Me Going

I had an awesome interview with Elisha Lee today. Elisha is founder of Eat To Live Daily and is helping so many people transition to a healthy plant based lifestyle and improve their health.

One of the questions during the interview had to do with my why. Why do I keep going and why do I keep eating the way I do. I answered that my why is health. But I was giving it some thought since the interview and my why has been even beyond health. I don't think I gave a complete answer because there are other whys.

The Plant Based World Expo Was Amazing

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to go to the first ever Plant Based Word Conference & Expo in New York City. I’m so glad that I went because I learned so much and met so many people that I’ve admired since going plant based.

Dr. Scott Stoll started off the conference with a lesson on our food industry and the tactics the meat and processed food industry used so that consumers would keep buying their products. I learned a lot as it was interesting to see how we got to where we are now as a society.

The NYC Eat Well Stay Well One Day Immersion

I first learned about Dr. Joel Fuhrman back in 2012, when I was first started my weight loss journey. He had an enormous impact on how I ate back then when I started and it continues to this day. Although I follow all the plant based doctors now, I credit Dr. Fuhrman for opening my eyes to healthy plant based foods.

I still eat his recommended GBOMBS foods (greens, beans, onions, mushrooms, berries and seeds) along with a variety of other plant based foods. The GBOMBS foods specifically provide all the essential micronutrients you need to live a healthy life.
