This week, we're talking with Richard Hubbard who suffered from morbid obesity, along with many other related conditions including high blood pressure. At his peak, he was 350 pounds. After he was prescribed medication for his high BP, Robert decided to try to lower his blood pressure naturally with diet and lifestyle. That's when his life changed forever.
What was your life like before?
I was living on the standard American diet, hardly ever touching a vegetable. The horrible diet definitely took a toll on my health. I found out I was pre-hypertensive and pre-diabetic at a physical, that being the first time I saw a doctor since before college. I was also morbidly obese, having tipped the scales at over 350 pounds.
How were you able to stick with such a dramatic diet change?
What is your life like now?
My life is completely different than it was in 2011. I ended up losing over 150 pounds and kept it off. I workout 5 days a week, having completed two half marathons in 2019 and 2020.
What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of the fact that I can inspire others to change for the better. I helped my mom reverse her diabetes and am currently helping a friend lose weight with a plant based diet.
If you could have lunch with anyone, who would it be?
