Eating was a way of forgetting about problems. I grew up trying all diets available from Atkins to South Beach. It wasn’t until I changed into a plant based diet and learned about greens and super foods and read Fix Your Mood with Food that I was finally able to feel healthy, stronger and younger than ever. I lost 40 pounds within my first year of going vegan and now I have plenty of energy to practice yoga, training at the gym and riding more than 100 miles a week on my bike. A plant-based diet has helped me overcome my food addictions and I highly recommended to everyone an expert like Heather.” --Marco A Regil, Mexico’s Number One Television Game Host
