Adam Sud - Why Exercise and Nutrition is a Must For Recovery From Addiction

The Adversity Advantage

"Addicts are not criminals, they are humans in pain. People who are depressed are not sick, they are humans in pain. People who are suicidal aren't crazy, they aren't humans in pain" - Adam Sud In 2012, Adam Sud’s life was completely out of control. Once weighing nearly 350lbs and struggling with multiple addictions, serious chronic diseases, and mental health disorders. His life nearly came to an end when he attempted suicide by drug overdose. He checked into rehab and with the help of his parents and a plant-based diet, he began a journey that led to a remarkable recovery. Reversing all of his chronic diseases and getting off all of his medications, including his psych meds within 1 year and losing 180lbs. Adam is the founder of the non-profit, Plant-Based for Positive Change that is dedicated to advancing the research of diet and mental health/addiction, and is running the very first research study to investigate the effects of a plant-based diet intervention on early addiction recovery outcomes. He is an international speaker for the plant-based movement and addiction recovery movement. Adam has worked in recovery centers using plant-based nutrition as a tool for strengthening recovery and relapse prevention. He firmly believes that the simplest change on your fork can make the most profound change of your life and that self-love is the root of all recovery.  Topics discussed: What it’s like to be addicted to drugs Adam’s suicidal story and how he survived it Adam’s recovery journey How being of service helped Adam fuel his recovery and keep him on fire for not being that person he used to be Adam talks about their current research study called The INFINITE Study The importance of gut microbiome The importance of self-love and taking care of our body Simple ways to help someone who is in pain Takeaways: Anybody who's focused solely on the short term will is misled every single time. Recovery is a process of becoming whole. Recovery is always more valuable than sobriety (there is a difference). There is an amazing transformation that occurs when you make the decisions that you want, based on how you're going to connect to what matters most to you in life. Negative consequences don't motivate a single person on the planet. Being of service is a human trait that's necessary for a meaningful life. I'm not telling people they have to be vegan. But what we're showing is that there is a direct relationship between eating more plants, and your mental health outcomes.

Episode 132: Adam Sud & Diet's Impact On Addiction Recovery

Eat Green Make Green Podcast

“Recovery and lifestyle change is not a transformation to a new version of ourselves. It is a process of remembering who we’ve always been, before someone else got us to believe differently.”On this week’s episode of the Eat Green Make Green Podcast I sit down with the incredible Adam Sud. Adam is a suicide survivor, nutrition researcher, lifestyle coach, and the Founder of Plant Based For Positive Change. We talk about how from a young age Adam felt he was broken, how being diagnosed with ADHD further drove home that narrative, how Adderall abuse began to take over his life, how he wound up as a 350 pound addict, how at 30 years old he attempted suicide, how diet played a major role in his recovery, why loving bonds are the driving force behind change, why “negative” emotions are a reasonable part of being human, how his non-profit Plant Based For Positive Change is doing the first ever study on diet’s impact on early addiction recovery, the difference between sobriety and recovery, how to support a loved one who’s struggling with addiction, how to move forward with positive life changes, and so much more. This is, without question, one of the most powerful stories ever shared on the podcast. Show NotesDonate to Adam's Foundation & StudyPlant Based For Positive Change WebsitePlant Based For Positive Change InstagramAdam’s Instagram
