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!
