It has been an amazing past five years of healing, weight loss, regained strength and renewed hope and excitement for life.
Deni Moore, RN
I have been primarily vegetarian since college and then the last few years more of a “junk food” vegan. I ate a lot of refined foods - loved candy bars and donuts especially!
In January 2018, I read about calorie density and it changed my life. I retired from operating room nursing last year and I am now enjoying cooking simple, healthy foods. My husband and I both dropped over 35 pounds, lowered our blood pressure and our joints feel great – all without “dieting” or feeling deprived.
I can attest that your taste buds can be retrained to appreciate good, wholesome foods again.
