Hi! I'm Joanna Wen. I struggled with digestive health issues and a bulging belly most of my life. After becoming pregnant and giving birth to a set of twins, my belly stayed looking six-months pregnant over a year later.
Kind-hearted New Yorkers continue to get up to offer me their seats when I walk into crowded subway cars because I still looked pregnant... while I appreciated their kind gesture, I felt down about the way I looked and was determined to make a change.
I've experienced first-hand the healing powers of food after drinking green smoothies amazingly ended up healing my nearsightedness. Since then, I’ve been concocting food as medicine in my kitchen lab to solve my health issues in natural ways.
I wholeheartedly believed food to be the answer to my weight loss quest and started my research. What I stumbled upon was an amazing world of spices, herbs and nutrient-rich foods that turned the conventional wisdom on weight loss upside down!
Number of sit-ups to flatten my belly: Zero!
Count calories and then feeling hungry: Nope!
Eat flavorful and easy-to-prepare meals: Absolutely!
Within a month I lost 10 pounds, and I’ve shed a total of 28 pounds and trimmed 9 inches off my belly in the six months that followed.
People no longer get up for me when I enter crowded subway cars. I have more energy to keep up with my toddler twins.
Using food as medicine to achieve optimal health and weight is my life passion.
Let me save you the time and hassle of trying to “figure it out” on your own and straight to the results!
