198: Vegan Strong

Bill Muir, AKA Sgt. Vegan has been vegan since 1992, after he was already in the punk scene and identified as straight-edge. As a defiant act, he figured since he wasn't drinking or doing drugs, it wouldn't be that much harder to give up animal products.

Twenty-seven years later, Bill Muir now has a Certificate in Vegan Culinary Arts from Atlantic Union College and a BS in Nursing from Drexel University and has authored the book, Vegan Strong. He has also been Honorably Discharged from the Armed Services and serves our Nations's Heroes as an RN at the West LA Medical Center.

In this episode, Bill shares his story of compassion and non-violence through all areas of his life.

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.

114: Mental Health - Borderline Personality Disorder

** This episodes contains sensitive material that may be bothersome for some listeners **

Chef Logan Kendall is probably best known for his career with Chefs Roll or his consulting projects, placing his name on menus all around San Diego, but what you may not know, is his past that led him here. He spent most of his teenage years in Juvenile Hall and has had an ongoing relationship with Borderline Personality Disorder.
When he was just fourteen, he was housed in a residential treatment center for well over a year and his almost successful attempted suicide was what actually gave him the opportunity to show his parents that type of treatment wasn't right for him.

Now, at 24 years old, Logan talks about what it's like for him to thrive in today's world while also managing BPD.
