He has always supported Stefanie through all of her “diets’ from weight watchers to Jenny Craig he was by her side and just as supportive as they decided to transition the family together. In 2012 after concerns about their daughter wanting to go vegan, Stefanie started researching and found that not only can we survive without consuming animals, but we can thrive without them. After recognizing the negative health effects of the Standard American Diet she transitioned their family to WFPB. They lost a total of 250 lbs. after fully adopting a plant-based lifestyle.
