Getting Back To Running Slowly

 

Yesterday, my physical therapist did a reassessment and said I probably only need one more appointment in a few weeks. The exercises he gave me seemed to do the trick as my knee is so much better. The swelling is gone, no more pain going up or down the stairs and I can actually run again.

Want To Lose Weight? Stop Thinking About Moderation!

Many people are struggling with their weight, as I once was. I recently did a video to help Million Dollar Vegan with their recent campaign.

Here's why I don’t like the everything in moderation talk.

Would You Want To Be Moderately Healthy?

When I finally lost the weight and it stuck, it was because I did it for my health. All other attempts to lose weight before this failed because it was only about the numbers on the scale. When I put the health first, the weight came off.

The Benefits of Plant Based Eating

I lost weight and a lot of people know about it. But what is more significant in my eyes is my transition to 100 percent plant based eating. I could have done my yo-yo dieting that I did in the past but that would have been only a temporary fix. What I wanted was something that would improve my blood pressure without needing medication and avoid diabetes. After a lot of research, I realized that plant based eating was the way to go.

So what did being plant based do for me? Take a look at some of these significant items:

An Interview With Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams

I've been inspired by Eric Adams work for a few years now. He successfully reversed his diabetes, helped his mother reverse her diabetes, both with a plant based diet. He transformed the New York City public schools to include Meatless Mondays and recently helped to eliminate processed meats from the school menu.

I heard Eric speak at a few events in New York. He is so awesome to hear in person. His story is quite impressive and will hopefully inspire those that are diabetic or sick with other diet related illnesses to change.
