The third installment in the "Plant Power Stories" from H.O.P.E. features Marc Ramirez, who shares his journey back to health and the things he's learnt along the way.

By switching to a low fat, whole foods plant-based diet, Marc was able to reverse his type 2 diabetes, his erectile dysfunction and other health conditions. At 51, he is now in the best shape of his life.

Marc Ramirez's family were plagued by diabetes, diagnosed himself in 2002 he was told by his doctor that he'd need to take medication every day for the rest of his life. After hearing about the benefits of a low fat, whole food, plant-based diet in 2011, Marc and his wife Kim decided to give it a go.

After only 2 months of his new lifestyle, Marc was able to come off all his medication and has been medication free ever since.

Diabetes wasn't the only health condition Marc was struggling with. Prior to his diet change Marc had high cholesterol, high blood pressure, erectile dysfunction, frequent heartburn and psoriasis. Fortunately, he no longer suffers with any of these. Marc's happier, much more energetic and his weight has dropped to what it was when he was a teenager. Things in the bedroom have improved considerably too.
