Milan Ross was born and raised in the Midwest. As the youngest of five children, he grew up in a home where food, family and friends were the focus. Though his mother and grandmother suffered from obesity, Milan grew up fit and lean. At the age of 24, things began to change and by the time he reached his 30th birthday, he had gone from skinny and ripped to morbidly obese. At his heaviest, Milan weighed over five hundred pounds.
In 2012, Milan went to work for Whole Foods Market — a decision that changed the direction of his entire life. In October of 2013, Whole Foods Market sent Milan to participate in the Dr. Stoll Immersion Program. At that immersion Milan learned about a whole food, plant-based diet. Since that wonderful immersion, Milan has gone on to release over two hundred pounds and more than thirty inches off his waist using only a whole food, plant-based diet and exercise. He also managed to end his dependency on medications for issues like high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
After experiencing his own amazing transformation, Milan has made it his life’s mission to help others escape the deadly hold of obesity. Through The Change Immersions, his book The Change, co-authored by Dr. Scott Stoll, and his line of Full Flavor Vegan spices, Milan is doing everything he can to help educate others about the amazing benefits of living a compassionate, whole food, plant-based lifestyle.
