In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Adam Sud about treating drug addiction through a plant-based diet. Adam, a 7th generation Texan, formally weighed over 300lbs, was a drug and food addict suffering from severe depression. Through his own journey he discovered how plants can help others like him overcome addiction. Today he is over 4 years sober and weighs 165lbs. He is a certified holistic lifestyle coach and developed a program using plant-based nutrition as a tool for addiction recovery and relapse prevention.
We take the idea of drug, alcohol and food addiction as well as depression to a deeper level with Adam. We’ve seen this pattern come up with many amazing transformational stories. All of us need to really understand why this is such a common theme and what role diet really has in the treatment and healing process.
In this episode we discuss:
- Adam’s low point and how he got there
- ADD, ADHD and Adderall
- Addiction and Depression
- Which came first…
- Rip and Engine 2
- My fault
- Make the change
- Sober Living
- Being comfortable being uncomfortable
- Arachidonic acid
- Addressing addiction
- Passion vs addiction
- Changing nutrition in rehab
