When the hold of sugar addiction and habits are so strong, how can we support people through breaking out of their harmful diets? 

Dr. Nadja Pinnavaia, Doctor of Quantum Chemistry and former Managing Director at Goldman Sachs, is proving that it’s never too late to change your path and create an impact. 

She is the founder of Plantable, a meal service that goes beyond food delivery and takes a holistic approach to coaching clients through their transition to a plant-based diet. 

Her program is helping people lose an average of 8.9 pounds, regulate their elevated cholesterol and blood sugar, and gain confidence in only four weeks.
