About this Event

Presentation with Emily Boller, Author of "Starved to Obesity" Ticket includes potluck dinner provided by food volunteers.

More than eleven years ago, at age 47, Emily Boller—devoted mother of five--was obese and suffering from heart disease, hypertension, prediabetes, and joint pain. When she decided to embrace a high-nutrient, plant based diet that year, she lost 100 pounds and got her health back within ten months; but more importantly, she got rid of her food addictions that were causing her weight gain and poor health.

Soon afterward, she started interviewing people from all over the country who had also followed a nutrient-rich, plant based diet. She discovered that they not only lost weight and got rid of their addictions to unhealthy food, but they eradicated their lupus, psoriasis, cystic acne, allergies, and many other maladies. She couldn’t keep the miraculous recoveries to herself; she had to share with others what she was learning! Emily’s passion led her to go back to school and get certificates in Basic Nutrition and The Science of the Nutritarian Diet from the Nutritarian Education Institute.

Today, her mission is to provide practical, no-nonsense tips with easy to understand science in order to help anyone escape the addictive grip of the Standard American Diet that sabotages health and well-being. She’s the author of Starved to Obesity: My Journey Out of Food Addiction and How You Can Escape It Too! (Post Hill Press; 2019), and she speaks nationwide at health retreats and events to inspire and teach how nutrition transforms bodies, heals diseases, and saves lives!
