  • 50 lbs overweight
  • infertile 
  • depressed
  • diagnosed with pituitary adenoma and hypothyroidism

without help

  • wasted thousands of dollars on doctors and specialists
  • was told that I would have to be on medication for the rest of my life

without hope

  • my future was dim
  • my hopes of becoming a mother were dashed 

I knew that there had to be a different way to do life better. 

I spent a year in research, then implemented what I learned.  



  • reversed hypothyroidism
  • cured pituitary adenoma
  • cured infertility


  • depression free
  • medication free
  • had a baby!

full of hope

  • dedicated my life to helping others
  • study health and nutrition full-time

I ate my way to being healthy!

Then I put everything that I learned into an easy-to-follow, comprehensive course, which teaches the principles I used to heal my body without medication, to help others, like you, do the same.

Body by Plants Success Stories

As of today, I lost a total of 105 pounds since starting Body by Plants!

susan-before-afterI was admitted to Southwest Medical Center, on February 27, 2012, to deliver my beautiful son; I was an astonishing 273 pounds!  Some of that was baby weight (all 8 pounds 8 ounces of him), and fluid retention (I was in Stage 3-4 Edema), but the vast majority was just poor eating choices while I was pregnant.  I could have never dreamed that I would become vegan, and embrace the health that it has shared with myself and my loved ones.  I was a meat eating, deep fried loving, junk food eating American.

I spent some time researching various diets and programs. I knew I needed more than just to count points, or eat this portion controlled piece of cardboard.  I needed to overhaul my lifestyle.   

In August, I came to Elena at 252 pounds, and started my first month of Body by Plants.  I was HOOKED!  Elena showed me a new way of living. 

That first month, 20 pounds came off!  Through strict discipline and radical changes within my home (and mind), I’ve been able to accomplish my goal of losing 50 pounds by my son’s 1st birthday.

As of September 2013, I am 105 down!

The program works!  I simply cannot state how much I appreciate Elena and all that she’d done for me and for my family.


I am off four medications and live PCOS symptoms free!

When Ashleigh enrolled in BBP, she had been suffering with PCOS for 13 years, with depression for nearly 10 years, was over her optimal weight, and was on 3-4 medications with severe side effects.ashleigh-after2  Asleigh’s condition was so poor that she did not want to leave the couch and had no energy to be the Mom she wanted to be to her daughter.

Today Ashleigh lives medication free!

She lost 34 lbs., no longer suffers from depression and has no PCOS symptoms.

Ashleigh’s body healed with the help of nutrient dense plant foods and she now has normal cycles without medications.

She has a ton of energy and can keep up with her 10-year old daughter.

In one month I lost nearly 16 lbs.  2.5 months later, I am 30 lbs down!

I was ready emotionally, physically and spiritually to heal my body and embrace a new way of life.  Elena’s program showed up and I knew it was meant for me. I wanted to learn a new way to live in harmony with a healthy life style.

The program was very easy to follow.  I did not have any trouble adapting.  I found the manuals to be very detailed and easy to follow.  The recipes were easy to fix and delicious.

By the end of the Body by Plants program I felt that I was well on my way of meeting my initial goals. I felt better and lost nearly 16 lbs.  Now, 2.5 months after starting the Body by Plants, and I still adhere to its guidelines, I am 30 lbs down! And I have never felt better.

I noticed positive changes in my metabolism and with my thyroid. 

I really needed to overcome an addiction to sugar and I also wanted to work through issues with overeating, so I decided to give Body by Plants a shot.

The program was very easy to follow.  The recipes were wonderful; it really helps keep you on the plan when you have recipes to follow.tandi

Having personal access to Elena helped with motivation and knowing I had to report at the end of the week helped when those cravings hit.

I found that following the BBP plan helped me to achieve my goal.  The evening green smoothies REALLY helped curb sugar cravings and it also helped me lose weight and avoid eating sugar after dinner. Body by Plants also really helped me start making healthier food choices.  I slept better and I noticed positive changes in my metabolism and with my thyroid.  My basal body temperature has been consistently higher than it used to be.


In one month I have lost 10 lbs, and 55″ overall!

I have been at the same weight for 6 yrs. and definitely knew I wasn’t doing something right. I wanted to be healthy and reach an ideal weight for health reasons. 

Elena is an excellent teacher. Her materials are so easy to follow and her recipes are amazing. The BBP support group on Facebook is the best—you relate with so many people going through the same things as you—it’s like a family. 

Personal contact with Elena was the greatest motivation–to have her believe in us and make us believe in ourselves was invaluable--it’s like having a personal fitness and nutrition trainer. 

My weight has never moved…until now. In one month I have lost 10 lbs, and 55″ overall. I also don’t feel tired that easily anymore. I used to have knee pain which has kind of disappeared, and I am eating less now. Lots of extra flesh on my face is gone and also from my waist.


I lost 3 lbs., 10 inches, developed better digestion, better elimination, shiny and healthier hair, clearer skin and went from a size 14 to 10!

I stumbled upon the Vegalicious site, and signed up to be on the mailing list. When I heard of the Body by Plants program I was really intrigued by it and decided to sign up. My goal was to lose weight and get closer to optimal health since I will be turning 40 very soon.

It was fairly easy to follow the program.  Recipes are simple to make.  It sure did help to have email access to Elena to help decipher questions and hurdles as they came up.  The personal aspect of the BC was most helpful.  It is very reassuring to know that Elena can be reached via email.  Her prompt responses made it even more positive.

By the end of the program, I saw big numbers in inches lost.  And overall I feel so great! I’d lost 3 lbs., 10 inches, developed better digestion, better elimination, shiny and healthier hair, clearer skin; went from a size 14 to 10; I am now able to fit into a pair of jeans from 5 yrs. ago. I now have a feeling of clean and light from within.


I gained better mental clarity, better sleep, and much more even tempered attitude and moods.  

I enlisted in Body by Plants to get to an even cleaner diet than I had, understand some more about a full plant based diet and its benefits, have support and accountability during the 30 days, get healthier both physically and mentally, and if weight loss happened then that was just “icing on the cake”….without the sugar and processed ingredients!  I also wanted to achieve better mental and physical health.

Elena was always so responsive and helpful—from email, to Facebook, to the weekly calls.  She always had great advice and answers for everything, and if she did not, she helped us locate them.

By the end of 30 days I gained better mental clarity, better sleep, a much more even tempered attitude/moods, and even had some weight loss.  

I plan to continue living and eating this way from now on.


I lost 15 lbs. and 14 inches! I feel great, my stomach has stopped hurting when I eat, and my metabolism improved. 

I had to enroll in Body by Plants to get new recipes and make sure I am eating the right way with my change of diet from SAD (Standard American Diet) to plant based diet. Before going plant based, my stomach used to hurt after eating, so I wanted to change that as well.

I found the program easy to follow. Everything was planned out. 

By the end of 30 days, and combining this with the 3-Day Green Smoothie cleanse results, I lost more weight than I anticipated (15 lbs. and 14 inches!), I feel great, my stomach has stopped hurting when I eat, and my metabolism improved. 

I would recommend Body by Plants with Elena to others and plan to continue with this lifestyle from now on.

I lost 6.5 lbs. and my husband lost 18.  We both felt great and energized.

I had lost track of my previous vegan ways toward the holidays and my husband needed help with getting his weight and eating under control.  

My goal was to get back to a vegan diet, lose some weight and feel good about myself again.  My husband’s goal was to lose weight.

In the end I was feeling very good and happy again.

Elena is very easy to get a hold of and answered emails/Facebook messages quickly.  I thought this was great.  Almost like a personal trainer that I could talk to all the time.  Her story in itself is very inspiring.  The weekly call aspect of the program is very cool too.

By the end of  30 days, I had lost 6.5 lbs. and my husband lost 18.  We both felt great and energized.  I also started taking more B12 and that made a huge difference.   I plan to continue with this lifestyle.


Body by Plants was Life Changing. I lost 13 lbs. I plan on continuing this for the rest of my life

As I was eating handfuls of M&Ms , knowing full well I was out of control, when I saw BBP announcement.  Eating a whole-foods vegan diet has always been something I looked as being ideal.  I wanted to get on the road to true health and to lose weight, so I enrolled.

Having the manuals and the support group (and the calls!) was essential! The accountability was great and Elena is a butt kicker, not a coddler! I like that!

I lost 13 lbs. in 30 days and it really set the stage for me going for the long haul! My belly is shaped different now! I don’t even miss meat or dairy WHATSOEVER! I want health—bottom line!

In a phrase: Body by Plants was Life Changing. I plan on continuing this for a very long time– most likely, the rest of my life.

By the end of the third month my thyroid is now normal. I have lost almost 20 pounds and around 35 inches!

I joined Body by Plants to get off my thyroid medication, get healthier, lose weight and keep it off for a change. Also want to have more energy, look and feel vibrant.

It was very easy for me to follow the diet. I knew I needed to take my health to the next level if I wanted to get off the medication I was on for thyroid as well as lose weight. Manuals were easy to understand.

Having support was very important. I knew that if I was in a store looking for something and had a question I could put it on Facebook or email and get an answer pretty quick. Also loved the calls. That helped me see that others just like me struggle with the same stuff!

After the first month I lost 9.5 pounds, 23.75 inches; I have more energy, overall feel better, stopped taking my thyroid medication.

Later I decided to re-enroll for another two months to get my thyroid in balance.

By the end of the third month my thyroid is now normal. I have lost almost 20 pounds and around 35 inches!
