Another movie about WFPB eating is making the rounds called "Big Change." Along with a slew of our plant based doctors and other health and cooking professionals they also interview success stories.
Here is an excerpt from the movie where they interview Chef AJ's early follower and friend, Shayda Soleymani. From the YouTube description:
Shayda Soleymani is from California and previously weighed 240lbs. Shayda talks about how she had previously been on a ton of diets and at one point in time a doctor actually told her that, “it would take herculean efforts for you to ever lose weight and to maintain that weight loss”
Since then she has lost the weight, kept it off, and is even now been able to get off her diabetes and cholesterol medicine (which was much to her doctors surprise.
In talking about her life now she said, “I’m happy, i’m back to wearing light and bright colors, i’m back to being myself again. It’s just emotionally, mentally, physically, everything has changed. It’s just nice to be out of the dumps."
Here is my conversation with Shayda and I hope that you enjoy it.
