Plant-Based Journey to Weight Loss

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.
