Adam Sud: Overcoming Food & Drug Addiction with the Power of Plants

Feb 12, 2019

Watch Episode 2 with Adam Sud here:

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.
