Well known for her signature humor and deadpan style, radio personality, Robin Quivers,
is truly a wise, witty and lucky lady.
Long before she was faced with the need to battle cancer, her search for ways to
improve her diet and lose weight led her to transition to a plant-based, vegan diet.
So when cancer struck, Robin found that “going vegan gave her the strength and
health that she needed to battle cancer and win.”
Her story goes something like this:
In June 2012, Howard Stern’s well known sidekick, Robin revealed on the
radio show that she had undergone surgery to remove a growth in
her pelvic area.
At a later date, she shared more details about her battle with cancer, which
occurred in her uterine tissue.
Happily, due to Robin’s strength, vigor and lack of debilitating side effects
from chemotherapy–which she attributed to her plant-based diet–
she was able to handle her treatments well and even broadcast from her
home during recovery.
“Basically I was strong going in.
“When you consider that I went through chemo
and radiation and hardly had any side effects
–I saw other people and they were going
through the same thing I was, my
situation wasn’t complicated by other
illnesses, other medications.”
Lucky for us, Robin has shared her personal journey, lessons learned
the importance and impact of a plant-based diet plus more than 90
healthy and delicious plant-based recipes in her new memoir/cookbook.
The Vegucation of Robin
In “The Vegucation of Robin: How Real Food Saved My Life”,
Robin takes us inside her decision to shift to a healthier diet and lifestyle,
after recognizing how a diet high in fat and sugar had resulted in poor health
and obesity for so many of her relatives.
Robin’s story immediately resonated with me because I share a very similar
Generation after generation of my own relatives suffered from the pain and
heartbreak of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholestorol as well as crippling,
debilitating arthritis–illnesses that have been successfully prevented
and treated with strategic diet and lifestyle changes.
I feel that Robin’s inspiring journey to wellness is a must-read for all who want
to understand the power of a plant-based diet to help you”look good, feel
feel good, and have fun doing it”.
In fact, I plan to gift copies to many friends and family members.
Promotion for “The Vegucation” has been robust.
And fortunately for us, Robin has been popping up everywhere spreading
her valuable and much-needed messages.
Recently, on the Dr. Oz Show, Robin shared insights from “The Vegucation”
and discussed the link between cancer prevention and diet.
“Diet is a very important
If you want your body to work the way
it’s supposed to, you need to give it
the nutrients it needs.
The solution isn’t in a pill–
it’s in what you eat.”
During an appearance at our local Barnes and Noble, Robin
was eloquent, entertaining and informative.
As a cancer survivor, she emphasized the important point that a
adding certain foods to your diet really make a difference
in fighting cancer.
“My plant-based diet was helping my body heal.
I couldn’t believe the difference I saw.
I’d never had such a dramatic shift in my health –
not when I was taking medication, not when I
was wearing a neck brace, and certainly not
when I was eating whatever I wanted.”
Robin shared that she is now cancer-free and back in the radio studio with Howard Stern,
who was very supportive during her ordeal.
“I feel fantastic!
I’ve been declared cancer-free for
about three or four months now.
It’s just a matter of still recovering
at home, past all that treatment that
kept me out of the studio for this long.
But I’ve been feeling really good.”
Now Robin is paying it forward and sharing what she has lived and learned
with the rest of us.
