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 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.

194: Myths of Choice

 

Clare Mann is an organisational psychologist, existential psychotherapist and author of numerous books and training programs. She is an expert in communication, human behavior and Vystopia (the existential crisis experienced by vegans, arising out of an awareness of the trance-like collusion with a dystopian world).

In this episode, Clare introduces her new book, "Myths of Choice" (why people won't change and what you can do about it), which goes into the psychology of why it's hard to convince people to change their ways. Clare also offers tips on how to be a more effective communicator when speaking to others about veganism or other belief systems that challenge some of the most normalized thought patterns.

Bonus: The holidays are coming, and Clare gives us some tips on how (or not) to enjoy the holidays with our non-vegan family members.
