Plant-Based For All

Losing weight – and enjoying good health – should not be hard.

Root Pre Plant Based Diet

That’s me. Well, that was me.

Born “big boned”

Growing up, I used my size to my advantage on the football field, boxing ring or gym, but when I graduated from college, the real world showed me the real consequences of not taking care of your health.

Five years after graduating college, I went for a routine physical. The scale measured just how much I love food. My blood pressure was high, like “you-need-medication-for-this” high. The doctor told me to lose weight or take medication for the rest of my life. I didn’t like the idea of being dependent on a pill to survive.

I decided to lose the weight.

This is me now.

I tried a lot of things. Most of them didn’t work. After more than five years of studying and testing, I found the key changes and habits that do work. The key principles that make it possible for everyone to embrace a plant-based diet.

The Plant-First Diet® applies all these principals and practices in simple changes for better habits. We don’t exclude any foods, but we do make priorities. We pay attention to how, why and when we eat. We make choices for longterm sustainability rather than quick results, and we make an effort to understand where and how our food is prepared.
