Philip McCluskey is a sought-after motivational speaker, author, and raw food expert who inspires and educates thousands worldwide about the raw food lifestyle, after he lost over 200 pounds naturally. After thirty failed diet attempts and the looming prospect of gastric bypass surgery, raw food saved Philip’s life, transforming him from a morbidly obese 400 pounds to a fit, energized, and glowing 185 pounds.

Passionate about the vibrant health and energy he gained when he lost his poor eating habits and emotional hang-ups, Philip has made it his mission to spread hope and health to others. He has appeared as a keynote speaker throughout the US, been on the CBS show The Doctors, Jack LaLanne commercials, and has also inspired nearly a million viewers who have followed his journey on YouTube. He is the founder of PhilipMcCluskey.com, a source of advice and inspiration about the raw food lifestyle, and is also the author of four books, including The World’s Sexiest Diet 7-Week Weight Loss & Life Transformation Program as well as Raw Food, Fast Food and Raw Food Juice Bar.

When Philip switched to a 100% raw food lifestyle in 2006, he lost over 215 pounds as well as the depression, anxiety, embarrassment, lethargy, and illness that had nagged him most of his life. In their place, he found renewed energy, vitality, and happiness – as well as his fitter, healthier self. He inspires others to begin their own healing journey and not only lose extra weight, but gain vibrant health, mental clarity, a sense of purpose, and a renewed passion for life. His message to them is: “I believe in you.”

When he’s not writing, speaking, or concocting fresh raw recipes, Philip enjoys spending time outdoors in the sun, hiking, exercising, and practicing presence.
