As the wife of a vascular surgeon, Maya Acosta began to see the devastating effects that poor lifestyle choices can have on the body. She started educating her husband’s patients and the community on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. She became trained in Plant-Based Nutrition through eCornell and attended the Lifestyle Medicine conference to learn more about lifestyle modifications.
Maya is the co-leader of the Plant-Based DFW Pod in Dallas, Texas. She has dedicated herself to raising awareness and educating the community about the benefits of a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle. Maya’s work extends beyond the community. She hosts the Healthy Lifestyle Solutions podcast, offering resources and support for individuals who want to adopt a plant-based lifestyle. Maya invites experts, including plant-based physicians, dietitians, health coaches, and chefs, to offer advice and share their experiences on the benefits of plant-based nutrition.
Maya is also a member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine’s Women’s Health Interest Group, highlighting the work of health experts supporting women’s health on her podcast.
