You don’t need to experience trauma to feel depressed.


You don’t have to grow up in a certain zip code to be a drug addict, and you don’t have to have obese parents to develop a food addiction.


Adam Sud grew up in a comfortable household with a loving family, yet he experienced all of these things.


After years of Adderall abuse and excessive consumption of fast-food, Adam tried to commit suicide.


Unsuccessful in his attempt, he finally committed to seeking help and discovered the healing powers of the plant-based diet - not just the physical effects, but the mental benefits as well.


Adam lost 160 pounds and titrated off all of his medications, including his antidepressants. Now healthy and medication-free, Adam devotes his life to helping others, proving that no matter how far one has fallen, there is always a way out.
