Vegan Diet Before and After. From Junk Food Junkies to Vegan Marathon Runners

This is one of the most amazing vegan weight loss success stories I have ever seen. It’s about more than losing weight and a vegan diet. It’s about what’s possible in a relationship, the power of food and the power of change!

When I first read about Robert and Jessica Foster my mind was blown! They were a couple from Boulder Colorado and they were very overweight and unhealthy. But they didn’t just continue to live that way. They did something about it! Their last hope was a vegan diet.

What was their motivation? Their kids. I wish more parents could see that their children will grow up eating and living the same as their parents. If you want your children to be active and healthy you have to do it by example. This was something this amazing couple realized. Robert told CNN, “‘It got to the point where we realized it didn’t matter what we fed them, If we weren’t eating the same way or if we were overeating, they were going to follow our example.’

The chose to lose weight by starting a vegan diet. It’s been proven time and time again that going vegan is the best path to weight loss. You won’t believe how much it changed the Fosters lives. The lost an amazing combined 280 pounds! See their amazing before and after pictures and exactly what they did below.

Robert and Jessice completely transformed their lives by choosing a vegan diet. They gave up things like cheeseburgers and traded them for healthy vegan food.

How did Robert and Jessica get to the point they decided to go vegan and change their lives? Jessica said,

“There was that point I hated myself so much. I wasn’t giving them the full me because I was disgusted,’ she said of her family. You have to look in the mirror and say, “Am I going to allow this to continue or am I going to stand up and make those changes?” A light turned on upstairs.”

They went vegan, they began cooking all of their meals at home, and they starting moving and being active. Before long they had run their first 5k marathon. And since then they have gone even further. Just check out their pics now!

  1. I experimented going vegan for about a month and also gained weight. I was just looking to become healthier though and I achieved it because it’s what helped me get pregnant. I am not vegan now but I still love trying vegan foods. I think it’s a wonderful lifestyle that has benefits for everyone.

  2. Going vegan doesn’t automatically equal weight loss. It implies that all foods that would be vegan naturally or intentionally are low calorie, low fat, and have little to no processing or heavy ingredients.

    Oreos are vegan. Many cakes and doughnuts are vegan, Lots of vegan meals can be rich with creamy nut dressings and oils. Fries are vegan if cooked in vegetable oil and in a dedicated fryer. Other fried dishes are vegan. Fattening sandwiches, pasta dishes, and shakes can be vegan.

    The point is that vegan foods (including drinks and desserts) can be quite rich, decadent, and hearty. And if you eat a lot of those foods often without getting regular exercise, you will still have extra weight while being vegan. And you can GAIN extra weight WHILE being vegan.

    And not all vegans are thin. That is a destructive and foolhardy myth that so many people assume…even other vegans, strangely enough.

    No matter what dietary lifestyle you follow, efforts in getting regular exercise and making healthy nutritional choices must be made. It’s not an automatic thing. Even raw food desserts can be rich. They are made with BETTER ingredients, but they can still be rich and overeaten.
