It was a chance meeting with Richard, who I knew as a friend that put me on a path to a much better eating habit and healthier life. I had health issues that I wanted to address and started working with Richard.
Richard asked for blood tests before we started the program. My blood pressure was high and had been for some time. It had become border line medication. From the first appointment with Richard I removed meat, dairy and eggs from my diet and followed his advice – whole foods, plant based. I had a doctor’s appointment two days later to address my blood pressure and I was astounded that my blood pressure was normal.
Richard has done the nutritional research and left no stone unturned. He can back up his findings and speak with authority on what he teaches. He took the confusion out of the dinner table. I can have good quality bread and whole grains, non-dairy milk, lovely salads with variety, fruit, and a rainbow of vegetables. Recipes are easy to prepare and delicious. One of my favorites is a grilled mushroom in place of meat.
I can eat whole foods, plant based much easier than I thought and this eating style takes care of overeating sugars and other unhealthy foods. Because I started working with Richard I am on no medication and I am in my 60’s. I do slip sometimes but now I know without any doubt what is best for my body and brain. I don’t feel I am missing out because I have no meat, no dairy and no eggs.
My blood tests were redone and everything improved. Six months later I am now encouraging my husband to follow my example as he has daily pain and health issues. Richard is there to support me and answer any questions I have.
