We’ve been following the story of a Cambodian man who went from having only one meal a day to having three meals a day.
And then he decided he wanted to eat more.
The story was originally featured on The Good Food Institute, but since then, the story has been picked up by a number of other media outlets.
The Good Health Diet podcast, a popular podcast that focuses on health and diet topics, interviewed the man for its episode.
In it, the man reveals the reasons why he’s been eating more and more, and his experiences with the Cambodian government and the food industry.
We’re going to talk to the man about his food, his health, and how he managed to survive for so long.
The man is an avid gardener and he uses the plants he grows to feed his family.
The problem was, he says, the government told him to stop growing plants.
“They said you can’t have more than four plants per person,” he said.
So the man tried to grow a few more, but that proved impossible, and he ended up giving up altogether.
The next day, he called the local police and reported that he’d been illegally growing plants for his family, and that he was being harassed and ridiculed.
So, he decided to get his act together and start growing plants again.
“It was kind of like going back to the beginning of my life,” he told The Good Healthcare Diet.
The guy told The Food Babe that he tried to plant two more times over the course of three years.
“I was going to keep growing the same plants,” he continued.
But then he had an idea.
“There are some plants that can be used for a more balanced diet,” he explained.
“Some plants can have more of a flavor than others, and I was thinking about using those plants.”
So he went back to his garden, and this time, he added some herbs to the mix, and began growing a few of the plants in addition to the plants from his garden.
His family started eating more.
“We had four people who came home from school, three of them were eating five meals a night, and we have four people that are still eating six meals a week,” he added.
But his family is still in the process of trying to grow their own vegetables, as they’ve been unable to find any fresh produce that can support the family.
But he says that it’s been a lot easier to grow his own food now.
“You can buy a lot of vegetables, you can buy tomatoes and peppers and things like that,” he recalled.
“So I’m definitely more careful about buying from the market and buying fresh.”
This is not the first time the man has made the switch from his traditional diet to eating a more healthy one.
Back in 2013, he told us that he wanted the same things he’s now trying to do, but he had to try a different approach.
“This was a very difficult decision for me to make, but the main reason for it was I was eating too much,” he shared.
“As long as I eat three meals per day, and the family eats three meals, then it’s ok,” he concluded.
This has allowed the man to grow vegetables and herbs without worrying about the government telling him to.
“Now I can buy food from the local market and go and buy food for my family,” he also told The Bad Health Diet.
It sounds like the man is doing very well.
The couple currently has three grown plants, with one of the three now being in the form of a salad.
The other three are on the chopping block, but they’re not the only one who’s made the decision to switch to a more sustainable diet.
Many people have also started eating vegetables and fruits from the produce section of grocery stores, as a way of keeping up with the demands of their busy schedules.
One man in Australia recently told The Australian newspaper that he had been eating vegetables from the fruits section of his local supermarket since the age of nine, and had become a certified organic farmer himself.
In his book, Organic Life, the author, Mark Sussman, told the story: “I started with a simple salad, and then gradually worked up to a full vegetable salad, a full fruit salad, even fruit and veg, with an extra little bit of cheese and hummus.”
He added, “It took me two or three years to get to a fully grown vegetable garden, but I was a certified farmer, and it has been an amazing experience.”
So what’s next for the man?
“I’ve always been interested in the food we eat,” he wrote in his book.
“Growing my own food is something I am very passionate about.
And so far, the good health diet has been a really great experience.”
