To launch our new podcast, ‘Growing a Food Movement,’ we have brought together a great representation of our Berry Good Board of Directors, and are excited to share our story. Berry Good Food is comprised of an all-volunteer board of local food advocates and enthusiasts. We want to make sure ALL members of our community understand the importance of and have access to healthy food. We also believe that local food is often best for our bodies and for our environment, and we want to empower and connect individuals to make good food choices.

197: Plant-Based Addict

In 2012, Adam Sud’s life was completely out of control. Once weighing nearly 350lbs and struggling with multiple addictions, serious chronic diseases, and mental health disorders. His life nearly came to an end when he attempted suicide by drug overdose.

He checked into rehab and with the help of his parents and a plant-based diet, he began a journey that led to a remarkable recovery. Adam is now a diabetes and food addiction coach for Mastering Diabetes; a program that focuses on reversing insulin resistance to master type 1, Type 1.5, pre-diabetes, and type 2 diabetes using low fat, whole food, plant-based nutrition.

He also works with Engine 2 and Whole Foods Market’s Total Health Immersion Team. He is an international speaker for the plant-based movement and addiction recovery movement. Adam has worked in recovery centers using plant-based nutrition as a tool for strengthening recovery and relapse prevention.

He is also the founder of the non-profit, Plant-Based for Positive Change that is dedicated to advancing the research of diet and mental health / addiction and is running the very first research study to investigate the effects of a plant based diet intervention on early addiction recovery outcomes. He firmly believes that the simplest change on your fork make the most profound change of your life and that self-love is the root of all recovery.
