Andrea

“I had some health problems last year and did some research around a WFPB diet. I came across the 21 day plant-based challenge in January and signed up. I found it effortless and haven’t looked back!  I’ve lost a stone and a half, and my symptoms are gone. My son has been inspired and made the switch too. Thank you so much for all the support, advice and encouragement.”

Martin

“I have been on a 90% plant-based diet and lifestyle on and off now for a couple of years. After reading more of your evidence based medical studies and individual case studies throughout your emails, I am now personally more convinced and confident than ever of the nutritional benefits of a fully plant-based diet and have decided to commit to a 100% WFPB nutritional diet and exercise lifestyle. A massive thanks to you and all at the PBHPUK.”
