The Podcast About What to Do When a Vegan Diet Stops Working…

by Sean Croxton

There’s nothing wrong with changing your mind.

My gosh, if it weren’t okay to flip-flop in the event of new information, I would still be pushing the Food Guide Pyramid and watching my personal training clients get fatter!

In his book How to Win Friends and Influence People, Dale Carnegie writes, “…ninety-nine times out of a hundred, people don’t criticize themselves for anything, no matter how wrong it may be.”

In other words, human beings LOVE being right — the overwhelming majority of us will stick to our guns regardless of how conclusive the evidence to the contrary may be.

Susan had fallen madly in love with her raw food vegan diet. So much so that she wrote a 700-page book about it!

Going vegan made Susan feel amazing. Her book, The Live Food Factor, even became a bestseller, making her a hero amongst the vegan community. She was on top of the world. That is, until…

Her diet stopped working for her.
