Meet our Herbie of the Week: Sunny!

I topped out at 201 lbs. in 2012, was on 2 blood pressure meds, cholesterol medication, and was having signs of early cardiac problems.

I found PCRM online and signed up for their newsletter. I got a newsletter for the 21-Day Kickstart and tried it (a couple of years before), but never quite managed to stick to it. I began to have heart palpitations, breathlessness, high blood pressure (167/102), and no energy ...

Meet our Herbie of the Week: Tracy!

Tracy has a family history of Type 2 Diabetes, and knew she had to do something about her health so that she would not follow that path. She went plant-based and lost weight, but hit a plateau. Meal Mentor helped her break through it and start losing again.

Meet our Herbies of the Week: Steven & Jackie!

Steven's journey to better health (and a plant-based diet) started in 2014 after a heart-felt plea from his son. He started to do his own research, and once he discovered how harmful dairy and oil can be for the body, he went plant-based -- and Jackie soon followed!

Since transitioning their entire family to a plant-based diet, Steven's medical issues have resolved and Jackie is no longer on any of her medications. To top it off, they both lost 60lbs and feel great!

My husband, Steven, started us on this journey in 2014. He was experiencing fainting spells and doctors couldn't figure out the problem. One day my son, who was 6 at the time and a huge super hero fan, went to my husband and said: "Daddy, all the super heros' their fathers all died. I don't want you to die."
