I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Chef Thubten. He is a work in progress. Hitting his highest weight of over 425 pounds he did what many people do, tried the garden variety of diets. It wasn’t until he discovered Whole Food, Plant-Based Eating that he discovered the perfect eating protocol AND his life’s work… being a plant based chef.

Based out of Portland, Oregon, Chef Thubten thrives in an environment that calls for his unique skill and talents. Offering pop up dinners around town. To learn more, email him at
Our conversation covered the difference between being vegan and plant based, his upcoming food program on television, how he went from being a couch potato to eating potatoes to drop incredible amounts of weight, who is personal workout coach is and much more.
