I know a lot of times when it comes to bettering ourselves or our lives we think we are alone. One thing you need to know is that you, my friend are not. I have struggled with my health and weight my entire life until a couple years ago. Today I am a better person because of everything that I went through and the most exciting part is that I now get to help you on your journey.
I'm not going to sit here and tell you that I found the secret to easy weight loss or that you can lose 30 pounds in 30 days. That might be great for sales but it’s not realistic (or even slightly true). The truth is there is no secret. It takes a lot of dedication, and a true desire to change your lifestyle for the better to become the person that you want to be. But how do we do that?
We reach our goals through a consistent effort, day in and day out but we also need support, guidance and a plan that we know we can sustain to help us achieve our goals. I've found over the years of coaching people the biggest struggle is figuring out what to eat. This is the reason that I have created Plant. I wanted to give you an easy, customizable meal plan full of foods that you get to choose and know you will love.
For people that need extra support. We have created a premium membership, which gives you access to a private Facebook group where I (and others on the same journey) can help you more on a personal level. I will also be doing live videos in that group and I will be active in there everyday to help you succeed.
Realize that this isn't a diet, it is a complete lifestyle makeover that is not only going to get you to where you want to go but keep you there for the rest of your life.
If you're ready to start your journey, I'm ready to be there with you every step of the way.
My name is Jenna de Quesada and I am 16 years old living in San Diego. About 10 months ago i became vegan and let me tell you. BEST.THING.EVER.
But not only just being vegan, but being a high carb low fat (lean and clean) vegan! I was overweight and ate all the SAD junk on the daily… the weight kept creeping up on me.
When I went vegan at first I used to have anything vegan and I would wonder why I never felt good after or why I still had those extra pounds. Never would have guessed it was from the processed and oily fake meats and chips!
After finding you on youtube, making over 20 of your recipes and buying your books, I can say with 100% certainty that you changed my life. I am so grateful that you helped me lose 60 pounds!
Thank you for being the best role model and model chef out there! I have never felt better eating an abundance of whole plant foods and you have help me overcome a restrictive mindset that counting calories is needed. LOL ITS NOT !!!
I could go on and on about how much I love you and what you do for the community but bottom line is: Lean and Clean is the way to go.
It has helped me, like I said, lose 60 pounds at the age of 16!!! You are a forever lifesaver Hannah!
I have been overweight my whole entire life and have tried to lose weight countless times before and always failed.
In January of 2016, I found the Forks Over Knives documentary and started to switch to a vegetarian diet. However, I never thought I would be able to give up dairy and make the full switch to a vegan diet.
In April 2016, I started experiencing debilitating headaches from what turned out to be chronic migraines. I was in tremendous pain, suffering, and miserable every day. In August, I decided that I was tired of feeling awful all the time and following the advice you share in your videos, made the switch to a whole foods, high carb, low fat vegan diet.
Transitioning to a vegan diet and a more active lifestyle has healed my body both physically and mentally. I have lost over 60 pounds! At 22 years old, I now weigh less than I did at 13 years old.
A high carb vegan diet has changed my life – giving me more energy and making me happier than I’ve ever been. Your recipes and nutritional advice have been an enormous part of my success (your corn chowder has become a staple in my house). I truly believe that a high carb vegan diet focused on healthy, filling recipes has been the reason why I have been able to successfully lose weight and feel great for the first time in my life.
Thank you for sharing your recipes and inspiration!
When I first became vegan I started using calorie trackers to make sure I was getting “enough protein”. It soon turned into an obsession with calorie counting and turned into an eating disorder. I was eating between 500 and 800 calories a day. I was losing weight but often felt tired and lightheaded because I was starving myself.
After watching your videos I learned that what I was eating mattered so much more than how much I was eating. I changed the foods I ate and now eat a healthy amount of food. My family and friends are often shocked by the amount of food that I eat while being able to lose weight. Now almost a year later I have reached my weight loss goals and am building back up the muscle that I lost when I was under eating.
I have lost 50 pounds total and no longer have an obsession with food. I feel stronger and more confident than before. Thank you so much for sharing your lifestyle with the world and changing my life.
Weight and self esteem have always been a big issue for me… ever since I was 12. I struggled with eating disorders and poor self image issues. It was when I was 12 that I first tried to be vegetarian as I loved animals so much, it didn’t make sense that I ate them…
That lasted about a year… since then I constantly went back and forth from going vegetarian to meat eater. Still struggling with weight and never feeling pretty enough or thin enough… I wouldn’t eat for days, I would take medication that suppressed mm hunger … I would do anything. I tried every diet that’s out there. Spent tons of money on magic pills and powders that promised results …. But none were found.
I struggled this way for years up until I turned 27! That’s 15+ years of hating the way I looked… Hating my body. Doing insane amounts of damage to my body. I was at my last straw.. I thought I would check YouTube out once more.. maybe I would find the answer… well this time I did.
I stumbled across High Carb Hannah’s channel and the first video I watched was her “how I lost 60lbs” video… And my mind was blown. The way she describes her life sounded like she was talking about my life. I struggled with drinking, smoking and taking medication to loose weight. When she said it was from going vegan and eating high carb low fat it’s like something clicked.
I went vegan that day and I haven’t looked back. I haven’t counted a single calorie anymore which I used to slave over… Now I am down 30lbs all from eating foods I enjoy and love and finally have a positive relationship with food! I wish every one would make the change. Not only for themselves, but for the animals and our planet!! I owe all my success to Hannah!!!
Thanks so much Hannah!!!
