  1. Way to go Lucas!!! I like to control my weight, but my husband carries around too much weight. We try to eat there at least twice per month and I joined ” Club Veg “. I must have been a rabbit in my former life because I just cannot get enough of my bunny food! If everyone in America ate like this the obesity rates in this country would be exceptionally low. Diabetes would become obsolete. People just don’t care or are still not getting the message.


  2. Great to hear. We eat at your location in Palm Desert/Indian Wells. Love it there. The food is great and we are so pleased to hear about Lucas. Keep up the good work!

  3. Three cheers to Lucas and Souplantation..
    Sure hope that you enjoy your new lifestyle. No doubt you are on your way to a long healthy life.

  4. Good going Lucas, I know it made a difference in your life. Some changes are difficult and some come easy. This one was not easy but at the right time in your life.

  5. Great job Lucas!!!

    I love Soupplan. I tried to keep the secret to only a select few but then people found out how rad it is! So now I have to wait in longer lines sometimes. And I’m all about the coupons.

  21. An inspiring story. I lost a sister because of obesity and lack of faith and patience. By getting a tummy reduction surgery, she developed an infection too late to control and DIED leaving a husband and 2 little children.

    I Chose to change my life like this gentleman, through the right route, eating healthy, exercising and a great attitude!

    Not only did I overcome depression, but I also healed from some deadly ailments like breast cancer, ulcers, TB and migraine headaches.

    Every time I visit LA the only place I WILL TAKE MY WHOLE FAMILY (MOM, SISTERS, ETC.)
    OUT FOR LUNCH OR DINNER is the Soup Plantation. Hopefully It will influence some of my obesed relatives to change their poor eating habits.



  22. Good for Lucas! I,ve been convinced all along that the reason we have so many over-weight people is because it’s so easy to eat junk food and we have forgotten the importance of nutrious food to our bodies.

  23. Lucas!
