Episode 18: An Interview with Adam Sud

In this episode, Julio and I interview Adam Sud, son of one of Whole Foods founders.  Adam is a recovering addict.  We hear about Adam’s fast drop in to drug abuse during high school while moving from using Adderall as prescribed for his ADHD to full addiction to the drug.  He also discusses his addiction to food.  Adam’s recovery began in a traditional treatment program, but what captured him was his medical diagnosis of Type II Diabetes and his commitment to treat this with a whole foods plant based diet. He lost over 100 pounds and became sober from addictive substances.  We discuss his ideas about the treatment of addictive disorders from a wholistic perspective and the push back that he has experienced from traditional treatment.
