Praise for Evolving Health from Medical Professionals:

Evolving Health is a must read for all those interested in better health. Ruben calls on his extensive background as a health professional, educator, coach and seminar leader to bring us information that can be put to use immediately. I particularly like how Ruben explains the science behind his recommendations in a way that is informative and engaging to both the scientific and non-scientific reader. Excellent book – which I highly recommend!

– Marty Taub, RN, MSN, CPN, Sutter Health


I had started working with Coach Ruben in 2004 and I knew his teachings were sound and meant to be life-long, even though I resisted them for quite some time. But as the saying goes, “when the student is ready, the teacher appears.” Now that I am in a graduate program for Nursing Leadership, I realized that if I am truly committed to transforming healthcare, then I would need to lead by example! The Evolving Health program provided me with reminders about exercise and nutrition. But, the most valuable key lesson was the segment about self-sabotage and the mental game that can stop progress. As a result of being in the 2010 summer program, I lost 40 pounds in 5 months and dropped two sizes. I have energy that lasts from5 amto well into the evening. My blood sugar levels are now stable and it’s leveled out my emotions, which means I don’t eat mindlessly because of emotions. I have gained a sense of well being that I’ve never had from the physical activity and it provides a positive effect on my mental and spiritual outlook.

– Terri Wolf, RN, BSN, OCN, UC Davis Oncology


As a registered nurse at Sutter, I thought I knew a lot about health and nutrition. In Ruben’s program I discovered the many “myths” about food and exercise, and learned the “truths” of how the body truly works – based on the physiology and biochemistry of our human design. I have now incorporated an entirely plant-based food plan and have discovered exciting recipes! As a result, I lost six pounds in seven weeks. I feel lighter! I have no more heartburn! I enjoy good food. And my breathing has improved substantially – I no longer have “asthma.”   

– Laraine Carver, RN, Sutter Health


I decided to participate so I could learn information for myself and my clients. What I discovered was the most efficient exercise program, and a food ladder that I agree with and could share with my clients. I then became fully plant-based in my diet for six weeks, and am staying mostly plant-based with occasional fish, and have been regularly exercising 5 – 6 days per week! As a result, I feel clearer spiritually and have increased my energy!!

– Brianna Mitchell, Holistic clinical hypnotherapist


I wanted to know more about being healthy and I wanted to find strategies that would help me do more of what I needed. I learned why I had a hard time exercising consistently – my old blueprint was that adult women (my mother) did not exercise – what was important was to be “thin and beautiful.” I also gained a greater understanding about how my body works. Subsequently, I decided to take responsibility for my exercise. I even worked out 6 days last week! As a result, I am getting stronger physically, I feel good emotionally, I am mentally alert and spiritually connected!

– Kathy Fong, Wellness Coach, Sutter Health


I was aware of my poor health and physical state before the program, but I was unaware of the poor nutrition I had. Subsequently, I became fully plant-based in my diet and increased my physical fitness. As a result, I lost 15 pounds in just a few weeks, and feel like I am honest with myself for the first time around food.  I have broken my addiction to sugar and it feels great!!

– Charlotte Parks, MFT
