About Alan Twigg
In 2016 and I had just turned 50. I was a married father of four children, slightly overweight, unfit and balding. Three years previously, my wife Susanne and I had decided to move from Germany where we lived to Tenerife in the Canary Islands with our two youngest children. Because we are self-employed, we were able to work from home, which, luckily for us meant that we had the freedom to uproot and move to Tenerife. We’d settled into our new life and that was good. But I had reached another turning point in my life. During the previous ten years I’d been working hard on growing my business and apart from the odd game of squash I’d been neglecting my health. I didn’t know why, but I felt bloated most of the time, as though air was trapped inside of my body that couldn’t escape. I also lacked energy and my digestion was causing me problems.
Now four years later, I’ve never been happier, healthier or more at peace. I’ve lost a bit of weight without going hungry, my energy levels have never been higher and I always sleep like a baby. I now know how to cook delicious dishes and the variety of food that I now eat is much more varied, tasty, fresh, healthy and nutritious than ever before. I’ve become far more aware of what is going on the world. I’m far more open, compassionate, caring and tolerant than I was before. Also, I’m now setting an example for myself and for everyone around me. I’m making a small but significant difference to the world every day.
I wish that I had made the change earlier in my life.
I will be eternally grateful to my daughter for showing me the light and helping me make the best change anyone could ever make.

Ep 79 – Dr. Melanie Joy | PhD
In this episode, we talk to Dr. Melanie Joy, PhD about her plant-based journey and the world of carnism . Also, we also talk about how to better communicate and improve relationships with one another with opposing views.
About Dr. Melanie Joy
Melanie Joy, PhD, is a Harvard-educated psychologist specializing in relationships, communication, and social transformation. She is the award-winning author of five books. These include the bestselling Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows and Getting Relationships Right: How to Build Resilience and Thrive in Life, Love, and Work. Also, she is known as a internationally recognized speaker and trainer. She has presented her work in fifty countries across six continents.
Similarly, she is best known for her groundbreaking theories on the psychology of violence and nonviolence and building healthy relationships. Her analyses have helped explain why people engage in “nonrelational” behaviors—behaviors that harm other people, animals, the planet, and themselves—as well as how to change this pattern. Her work has been featured by media outlets around the world, including the New York Times, BBC, NPR, and ABC Australia. She is the eighth recipient of the Ahimsa Award—previously given to the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela—for her work on global nonviolence; and she also received both the Peter Singer Prize and the Empty Cages Prize for her work developing strategies to reduce the suffering of animals.
Likewise, her mission is to raise awareness of the obstacles preventing people from interacting. She does that in ways that create a sense of mutual connection. These obstacles are both internal (psychological) and external (social). They are a key reason why we act against our own interests and the interests of others—often without realizing that we’re doing so. With awareness, we are better able to think freely and act compassionately. In addition, we create healthier and more fulfilling relationships and a more equitable and sustainable world.
Lastly, she is the founding president of the international organization, Beyond Carnism, and a cofounder of ProVeg International. Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, Joy now resides in Berlin, Germany, with her husband and colleague, Sebastian Joy.
