Best-selling author and plant-based dietitian, Julieanna Hever, M.S., R.D., C.P.T. , continues to travel the world to educate audiences on the health, environmental, and economic benefits of a diet centered around fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes. She became a household name through her partnership with critically acclaimed documentary, Forks Over Knives, a film that examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. Hever's message outlines the many miracles associated with following a whole-food, plant-based diet.
Hever continues to serve as the nutrition columnist for VegNews Magazine and executive director for Earth Save, a program that takes over food banks and offers recipients 21 days of a plant-based diet. The results are tremendous, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Additionally, the program costs $4/day per person, a significantly lower sticker price than meat-based diets.
Recently featured on The Dr. Oz Show, Yahoo! TV’s Reluctantly Healthy, E! News, HLN Headline News and Steve Harvey’s new daytime talk show, Hever also co-stars on The Chef and The Dietitian, numerous local TV and radio shows, and lectures extensively throughout the United States and select international cities. She is published in prominent journals, magazines, blogs, and newsletters. As co-producer and star of the "infotainment" documentary To Your Health, Hever interviewed a host of the plant-based world's most respected doctors and researchers to bring this important information to film and television audiences. This is all part of her evolving mission to bring whole-food, plant-based nutrition to the forefront of efforts to improve the current global health crisis.
Hever received her bachelor's degree from UCLA and masters of science in nutrition at California State University, Northridge, where she also completed her dietetic Internship. She has taught as part of Dr. T. Colin Campbell's eCornell Plant-Based Nutrition Certification Program, worked as a clinical dietitian at Century City Doctors Hospital, and has consulted for numerous businesses.
She is currently a wellness correspondent for Perez Hilton TV. In early 2013, Hever can be seen as the host of her own wellness talk show What Would Julieanna Do? on the Veria Living TV Network.
