In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk about Type 2 Diabetes with Vince Rountree from Eat Plants and Thrive. Vince creates and markets programs that help people treat diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and high cholesterol with food. He has had a successful career as a sales and marketing executive, but wanting more from life Vince pursued his interest in health. This was sparked by his own health issues as we have heard SO many times before. He was able to get his cholesterol on track in just a few weeks of switching to a plant-based diet. His mission is “To help people get better by treating the cause.”

Today we concentrate on Diabetes and specifically Type 2 Diabetes. We ask all the questions to help you understand what diabetes is and how a plant-based diet can help. We also hit some key points that people with diabetes and their spouses might fear.  With type 2 diabetes on the rise in North America and across the world, it’s important to get this information out to help people understand that food has the power to hurt you or heal you. We hope you learn a lot today and share this episode with anyone who can benefit from it.

  • Vince’s story – LDL 170 to 78!
