My husband began a weight-loss journey years ago that changed our family’s lifestyle for the better. With so many diets out there, my husband decided to try a plant-based, vegan diet to lose weight. The effects on our family have been amazing, and we continue to follow a vegan diet.
A Weight-Loss Journey
My husband, Kyle, was overweight for most of his childhood. He comes from a divorced household, and he frequently sought comfort and stability in food. Growing up, he often dealt with teasing from other kids, and even family members, contributing to his low self-esteem and self-image issues.
In December of 2013, he decided to seriously start trying to lose weight through eating fewer calories and exercising more. He ran regularly, attended martial arts classes, and stayed active at his job as a Health and P.E. teacher. He lost over fifty pounds, and when I met him for the first time, I had no idea that he had been heavier for most of his life.
