Listen to Cindy's inspirational Trimazing! story, going from overweight and unhappy to a healthy, fit, Ironman competitor on a plant-based diet, helping others do the same!
Chuck Carroll chats with retired firefighter Cindy Thompson who shed an amazing 60 pounds after adopting a plant-based diet! But losing weight wasn't her only motivation for change. There was something far more powerful driving Cindy, a former cheese addict, to give up meat and dairy.
The one thing she wasn't expecting on her journey? For her entire fire crew to take the plant-based plunge with her!
PLANTSTRONG Podcast with Rip Esselstyn
For full show notes, recipes, and episode resources from today's interview, visit: https://www.plantstrongpodcast.com/blog/cindy-thompson We are "fired up" to welcome a plantstrong firefighting sister, Cindy Thompson, to the PLANTSTRONG podcast. I was so moved by Cindy's background of why she chose firefighting as a career, but it's her journey to plants that makes her a true hero in my book.
I am so "fired up" to welcome a PLANTSTRONG firefighting sister, Cindy Thompson, to the PLANTSTRONG podcast!
In this male-dominated, meat-loving profession, she boldly took agency of her own health and, along the way, inspired others (including those macho BBQ-eating male firefighters) to take a second look at their own plates and take the PLANTSTRONG journey with her. In the process, she even lost 70lbs.
Today, even though she's retired from firefighting, she is still extinguishing the flames of disease and illness as a health and lifestyle coach, and is a licensed Food for Life Instructor for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
And, we get a bonus surprise today because she whips up an amazing queso in her studio kitchen and shares that recipe with all of us!
Let's sound the alarm for this PLANTSTRONG hero,
