He was also at his largest weight of 305 pounds. As he looked around at the patients in the hospitals, he discovered one common element to most of their conditions; they were almost all there for cholesterol related problems.

He thought to himself, “I’d better do something or I’m going to end up being one of the people in this hospital,” he said.

That’s when he decided to go on a plant strong lifestyle. He has now lost 80 pounds and has dropped his cholesterol from 263 down to 118. No longer on the diabetic short list, he now shares the secrets that helped transform his life.
Anthony is a regular on 3ABN worldwide television and has done thousands of these special free cooking shows in every continental state in the country.

He is from Las Vegas, Nev., where he used his skills as a personal chef/caterer to stars like Jack Nicklaus, Joan Jett, STYX, Journey, Eddie Murry and Kansas. His catering and professional career has credited him with being one of the youngest executive chefs in Las Vegas at age 24.

“The simple transformation of eating better will also save you time in the kitchen because everything is so much easier to prepare and you will save a lot of money because the products you will soon be craving are a lot less expensive.” Anthony said. “Your food will taste so much better because I teach you all about flavor and how your taste buds work.”

Anthony will present his free Dinner and A Message cooking show March 14 at 6 p.m., at the Tryon Seventh-day Adventist Church, located at 2820 Lynn Road, Tryon.

This is a free event, but donations are accepted. Seating is limited.
