Adam Sud found the will to live by overcoming a drug addiction and surviving an attempted suicide.
He credits much of his strength to three things: confronting his demons, reflecting inward, and changing the way he was eating.
On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, Adam joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to share his remarkable journey back from the breaking point and the role nutrition played in his recovery.
He is now leading the INFINITE Study which examines the effects of a low-fat, whole-food, plant-based diet on physical and mental health as well as resilience in addiction recovery. In essence, can a healthy diet increase the likelihood that someone will achieve long-term sobriety?
Adam’s own experience offers hope that sobriety and health can be very much intertwined.
Plus, Neal Barnard, MD, offers advice to a listener who wants to go vegan, but whose spouse is not supportive of the change. He offers the tools that can keep their relationship as healthy as a plant-based diet.
