Mr. Adams transformed from being a type 2 diabetic to being healthy, fit and vibrant, through a whole-foods, plant-based diet. “I’m the Brooklyn Borough president in New York City. I always exercised but my diet was horrendous.” Mr. Adams’s food choices led to some serious health problems. “And when I started that diet, in three weeks, my vision returned. And after three months, my diabetes went in remission, my nerve damage went away, my cholesterol normalized. I had a small ulcer, the ulcer went away. And all of this without medicine. And not only does it help you physically, but it also helps you emotionally and spiritually as well.” When Mr. Adams saw the dramatic, positive improvements in his health and well-being, he wanted to share the goodness with his family and with his community. One of the steps the Borough President took was to introduce Meatless Mondays into schools. Eventually the program expanded to all New York City schools. “The end goal is to wean us off of the over-consumption of meat, that we have in this country and across the globe.”
