I used to be the fat kid growing up. While I've had periods where I was "in shape," for the most part, I've been a dad-bod-father-figure-thickums.
In October 2021, I had a nervous breakdown that shook me to my core. That terrifying feeling of helplessness seemingly lasted for hours. I was so helpless; I could only lie down and sleep. When I could finally function again, I started wondering what changes I could make to avoid experiencing another breakdown.
I realized that a large part of my unhappiness came from how I looked in the mirror. You see, I ate unhealthy things when I was happy to celebrate my happiness and ate even more of the same harmful things when I was sad in an effort to help me feel better. I noticed that comfort food never comforted me in the long run. While it tasted good, I felt like crap after. However, because my brain was constantly going from pain to pleasure, I wanted to eat more of these harmful foods.
So, I decided in December of 2021 to go to therapy to help my mind heal, but I also decided to gain control of my physical health because I read somewhere that we are what we eat. While on this journey to optimal health, I discovered juicing. Through juicing, I have been able to lower my A1C, eliminate nearly all the inflammation in my body, and maintain a healthy weight.
I've also since been certified in Plant-Based nutrition from Cornell University, and designed this course to help you finally heal yourself--from the inside out.
