Since the 1st of January 2016 I've eaten nothing but potatoes on my Spud Fit Challenge
and my life has totally changed. I've overcome clinical depression and anxiety, I've lost 48kgs (106pounds) and have had numerous other health improvements. I'm now embarking on a new journey where I'm trying to use my experiences to help others achieve the same results as I have. I'd love the chance to travel to Los Angeles to the Healthy Lifestyle Expo
run by the Vegsource
website and learn from some of the world's leaders in health and nutrition. I'd especially love the chance to meet and interview Drs John McDougall and Neal Barnard, who have both been inspirational and transformative for me. I'd love nothing more than to spread their message farther and wider. I believe that with the exposure I've already had and will continue to get as the year comes to a close, I can use the knowledge I'll gain from this experience to great benefit for many people who are struggling with food addiction, as I was. If you are able to help me out with any small amount of money I'd be super grateful. If successful I'll be fully documenting the trip for youtube and inteviewing as many of the amazing speakers as I can in order to help educate as many people as possible. I don't expect that this trip will be fully funded but it's worth a try, I really think I can use it to help spread the message of good health and bring value to all the people who have followed me on my journey so far. Thanks so much to everyone who has supported me in any way this year, being able to attend this conference would really be the icing on the (potato) cake!
