So when I see Ruben Studdard, a young, black man who gained fame as an American Idol contestant, taking the opportunity to explain to a black woman and her mainstream tv audience how he lost over 100 pounds by transitioning from SAD to vegetarian to vegan, I do a little happy dance in my chair. I can't even remember if the dude won or came in 2nd on Idol. It's not really my show, but he and his family are winning a much more important prize by switching to a plant-based diet.
Who knows? Maybe High Raw will be the next phase in his journey.
After discussing diet and exercise, he goes on to highlight the important role forgiveness has played in his life. I'm loving it!
