A Skeptic Transforms: From Carnivore Diet to Plant Based

Feb 5, 2020

Watch Episode 60 with Eric Lindstrom here:

Eric Lindstrom once ate 68 chicken wings in one sitting. Today, he works full-time in animal advocacy and has written two books on veganism. What changed?

The self-proclaimed carnivore adopted a plant-based diet over a bet with his wife. While he admittedly grumbled the whole time, what was intended to be a 30-day health kick turned into a lifelong passion. Once Eric discovered that he didn’t have to give up his favorite meaty, cheesy foods, he stopped grumbling and embraced the plant-based way of life. 

With his relatable personality and relaxed humor, Eric encourages others to adopt a plant-based diet by illustrating its bounty of delicious options and its accessibility. 

A father of two young children, Eric also helps parents navigate a family-wide switch to plant-based. 

Tune in for some laughs, insight, and practical tips to make the switch.

What we discuss in this episode:

  • Eric’s past as an adamant meat-loving omnivore and his “reluctance” to go plant-based.
  • The bet between him and his wife that triggered his overnight adoption of the plant-based diet—and how he only thought it would be 30 days instead of the rest of his life.
