Hello my name is Christina. I always have been obese since childhood. In my school I was not only bigger than my classmates, but I weighed more than many of my teachers. I tried many diets over the years, weightwatchers, Jenny craig, and Atkins to name a few.  5 years ago, I decided to end my weight problem once and for all by having gastric sleeve sugery. I lost almost 100 pounds but I gained nearly half back within two years. I was dissapointed and ashamed.  I tried more low carb high protien diets, but I ended up binging and getting fatter and sicker.  I realized that surgery had made only my stomach smaller, I didn't change my mindset or cure me of my addiction of processed food.  

 My plantbased journey began when I was introduced to Dr.Garth Davis's  book, Proteinaholic.  After reading the book, I discovered why I regained so much weight and why weightloss surgery isn't the solution to America's obesity crisis.  I found Dr.Carney's group through facebook after seeing Chef Aj's video about juicing and blending. I discovered the reasons why I wasn't loosing weight, and why dieting failed me in the past. I keep reading blog after blog, topic after topic. I discovered so for information that the doctors didn't tell me. I learned that I had an addiction to refined foods,  and that whole foods not only help you loose weight, but are the key to health and vitality. I started the starch smart system several days ago, and so far I feel a lot better. I'm so glad that I don't have to measure, weigh, or track my food anymore. I no longer have to count calories or carbs, and I eat until I'm full and satisfied. Thank you so much Dr. Carney for your information you  have provided. I hopefully I can help others how have gotten bariatric surgery or considering it.

I was a long time vegetarian (25 years) but was unhealthy, overweight and had high blood pressure.  After watching Forks Over Knives, I found out more about whole food plant based diets and discovered Dr. McDougall, Engine 2 Diet, Dr Fuhrman, etc. I've been on a whole food plant based, no oil, limited salt, limited refined sugar for 5 years now.  I'm at a healthy weight, no longer on high blood pressure medication and basically feeling pretty great.  I'm always looking to expand my community, as that is something that I struggle with. I am a big fan of Dr Greger and love his latest book How Not To Die.
