Eric O’Grey was 340 pounds, depressed, and on 15 different medications, including 200 units of insulin per day for type 2 diabetes. After 25 years of failed diet attempts, Eric’s weight and medical problems spiraled out of control until he met a doctor who suggested treating the underlying causes of his medical problems rather than just the symptoms. During the next year, by learning how to transition to a plant-based diet, eating whole plant foods and going on daily walks, Eric lost more than 150 pounds, reversed his diabetes, got off all medications, and became happy and healthy for the first time in his life, eventually reconnecting with and marrying his high school sweetheart. Eric has maintained his optimal weight and health since 2010 and is passionate about sharing his health and weight loss success with others.
