In 2012, Adam Sud’s life was completely out of control. Once weighing nearly 350 lbs 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 too was greatly impacted by Rip Esselstyn and will be a speaker for the virtual Plant-Stock. 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 using low fat, whole food, plant-based nutrition. 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 makes the most profound change of your life and that self-love is the root of all recovery.
