Ever thought about giving up meat?? Yes, we have too. But whenever we think about it, something happens that stops us. But perhaps this story of Andrew and Ashley may help. When Andrew Scott lost a bunch of weight off his 5-foot-8, 230-pound body in two months in late 2012, the rumors and speculation swirled.
Was he sick? Was he taking drugs? What’s wrong with him?
But it was none of the above.
Earlier in the year, his girlfriend, Ashley Renee Chong, had researched ways to lose weight before her sister got married and pinpointed her approach: a raw vegan cleanse diet, which then led to a plant-based vegan diet.
“In all my research on health and nutrition, I kept hearing the same things over and over and it clicked. I knew I needed to try eating vegan,” says Chong, the American-born daughter of Jamaicans, her father being half Chinese and half African-American.
“At the time, the change was about losing weight, not being healthy.”
And it worked. The West Ashley High School graduate, who is now 23, has shed 130 pounds off her 5-foot-2 frame, going from 252 pounds to 119.
More than weight loss
But she noticed even more significant benefits. She felt energized. Her skin cleared up and was more radiant. Her thinking seemed sharper and more focused.
Now a convert, she began “preaching” to the man she loved and with whom she is now engaged to be married.
At first, Andrew would have nothing of it.
