Episode 0204: Live Your Most Authentic Life
In 2012, Adam Sud’s life was completely out of control. Once weighing nearly 350 pounds 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.
Adam has worked in recovery centers using plant-based nutrition as a tool for strengthening recovery and relapse prevention. He has also founded a non-profit 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 nutrient dense food intervention for addiction recovery. He firmly believes that the simplest change on your fork makes the most profound change of your life and that self-love is the root of all recovery.
