Brooklyn Borough President and mayoral candidate Eric Adams is on a mission to tackle chronic disease in the Black community.
After Eric woke up with severe vision loss in 2016, he learned that he was one of the nearly five million Black people living with diabetes – and, according to his doctor, he would have it for the rest of his life.
But he was not ready to become a statistic. There was a better option than medication and shots of insulin: food. Within three months of adopting a plant-based diet, he lost 35 pounds, lowered his cholesterol by 30 points, restored his vision and reversed his diabetes. Now he is on a mission to revolutionize the health of everyone. Armed with the hard science and real-life stories of those who have transformed their bodies by changing their diet, Eric shares the key steps for a healthy, active life.
With this book, you’ll discover how to:
* avoid processed foods
* cut down on salt
* get more fibre into your diet
* substitute meat and dairy with delicious plant-based alternatives
In the process, Eric explores the origins of soul food – a cuisine deeply important to the Black community – and how it can be reimagined with healthy alternatives.
