Need motivation to change your diet? See what she did (lost 100 pounds)

I receive countless emails each year from people who’ve lost significant weight and dramatically improved their health when they stopped eating processed food… but this email that I’m sharing with you today simply Blew. Me. Away.

“I have been disabled for 23 years and even had a wheelchair, a cane, and was mostly bedbound. I have diabetes, fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, depression, anxiety, and used to have sleep apnea. I started doing research into my food and health. I read a lot about what FoodBabe said and cut the toxins from my food, started changing my diet, and trying to walk a little every day. I have been able to lose over 100lbs, get off of most of the meds that I was on including methadone which was killing me and gave me central sleep apnea as well as obstructive apnea. I was able to wean off it and with the weight loss got rid of sleep apnea altogether. I brought my diabetic a1c test down from 7.9 to 5.6. I have 50 more lbs to lose and hope that I can get off insulin then. I am on a fraction of the insulin I used to be on, no more psych meds, and now I am able to work part-time with other people with disabilities. Thank you, Food Babe, for the information you gave that helped me change my life for the better.” ~ Kimberly W.

Go, Kimberly, Go!

Isn’t her story inspiring? This is what happens when you stop letting the food industry dictate how you eat.

Instead of looking for that next diet “challenge” or “skinny” shake to help you fit into your swimsuit this summer, you only need to make one simple change…

Stop eating processed food.

That is it. I promise on all of the green juice in the world that when you stop eating processed food and get back eating homemade food that you prepare yourself with the best ingredients, you will make incredible changes.

That is because the big food industry isn’t looking out for you. They don’t care if you get cancer or develop an unhealthy addiction to their product. They don’t care if you can’t lose weight or struggle to keep your energy up during the day. They are in the business of making money and are selling you empty promises they can’t keep.

In my latest book, Feeding You Lies (only ~$15 on Amazon right now), I walk you through a 48-Hour Toxin Takedown that helps you rid toxic processed foods from your pantry and your life. I developed this simple detox meal plan to supercharge your health in a short amount of time. You’ll avoid chemical onslaughts from food, end your sugar and processed food addictions, maximize your detox powers, and rejuvenate your energy levels. The best part? You’ll learn how to never diet again!

Cilantro Lime Cod

The light taste of fish is often overpowered by heavy sauces. We’ve found marinades to be a great alternative. Some healthy oil means they hold up better to the heat of baking or grilling as well. A quintessential summer flavor for said marinade? Cilantro lime of course! And we’ve got the marinade ready-made, to boot…. We’ve complemented this quick delicacy with fresh green beans, garnished with red pepper, red onion and some cilantro for an easy and tasty dinner pairing.

Servings: 3

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes


Green Beans:

  • 2 cups green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1/4 cup chopped red pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil
  • 1 tsp. red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp. minced red onion
  • Additional cilantro, minced red onion and avocado, to garnish


Soak a cedar plank in water for 2 hours. While the plank is soaking, preheat the oven to 375 ºFahrenheit.

Toss the green beans, red pepper, garlic, avocado oil, red wine vinegar, and a pinch of salt and pepper together. Lay the mixture out on a parchment-covered sheet pan. Roast for 15 minutes, then flip the vegetables over with a spatula. Roast until the green beans and are well roasted and top with minced onion and cilantro.

In a bowl, combine the Primal Kitchen Cilantro Lime Dressing and Marinade, garlic, cilantro, salt, pepper, cumin, onion powder and red pepper. Cut the cod filet into 2-3 portions and gently toss them in the sauce. Allow them to rest for 5 minutes.

Fire up your grill. The fish will need to cook over indirect heat. Take the cedar plank out of the water and place on a paper towel. Place the plank on the grill for 2 minutes. Flip the plank over and place the fish portions on top of the plank and spoon and remaining marinade over the top. Cover the lid and cook for about 15 minutes, or until the fish is firm and opaque. The cooking time may vary slightly depending on the thickness and size of the portions of fish. Top with chopped cilantro, minced onion and avocado slices and serve alongside the green beans.
