The Wellness Forum's Dr. Pam Popper

The Wellness Forum's Dr. Pam Popper has taken the concept of plant-based nutrition — viewed as a specific and optimal diet for human beings — and studied it as a way to avoid degenerative-based conditions like diabetes, cancer and more. Eating an optimal diet allows Dr. Popper to eat whenever she is hungry with virtually no fluctuation in her weight day to day.

"People say, 'Is it really that simple?' It really is," Dr. Popper says. "Try to stay away from so much packaged and processed food. When I started looking at those labels, I realized there wasn't even food [in those products]."
