Alex Kaminsky, who works in real estate marketing, shared her weight loss journey with Women’s Health. She shared that through a plant-based diet she was able to lose 105 pounds!

Kaminsky, who lives in Colorado, said of the transition from college to a desk job, which led to significant weight gain, “I just felt so horrible all the time. I slept poorly, had no energy, was always lethargic, and just felt sluggish. As a 22-year-old, I would think to myself, This is not how it should be. This is not the life I want to live.”

Using diet and exercise, Kaminsky was able to begin losing weight and feeling better. She told the outlet, “I eat a mostly plant-based diet about 90 percent of the time. Eating primarily plant-based makes me feel amazing—I have so much energy, I sleep great, and my athletic endurance has skyrocketed. I also never feel bogged down or overly full. I don’t track calories or macros. I just fuel my body as much as it needs with amazing whole foods.”
