It doesn’t matter where you’ve been. It doesn’t even matter where you are right now. It matters where you’re going. No one would have believed about 10 years ago that Angela Stokes-Monarch was going to lose 160 pounds and totally transform her relationship with food, people and life in general.

And while it may seem “easier said than done”, to those of us currently struggling in our relationship with food and self image, as Angela Stokes explains in this call, if she can do it, anyone can!

Angela Stokes-Monarch

Back in 2002, Angela was 23 years old, about 19 stone (266lbs/120kg), UK dress size 26-28 and lost in miserable cycles of a non-existent love-life, uncontrollable overeating and complete denial. But that all changed when she was lent a book, The Raw Family, by the Boutenkos that revolutionized her life. She began eating raw and the improvements in her health over the next weeks were astonishing. She said, “You could almost see the weight burn off me. ­ I’ll never forget seeing my collar bone again for the first time in years; my skin and hair quality improved dramatically, my energy soared and I was filled with vitality and a new hunger ­ for real life.”

Since her discovery of raw food, Angela’s journey has continued and not only has she found happiness, but she’s also shared it and made a point of helping others who struggled as she herself struggled. She now lives an almost completely sustainable lifestyle in Ecuador with her husband Matt. They chronicle their raw food journey and experiences, inspiring the health-seeking community and reminding everyone that no one need face such change alone.
