About the Instructor

Growing up in rural America, Dennis Jones saw a concerning part of America that some people overlooked. When his family moved into the city and provided him with a private school education, he still saw the ravages of poor health across the economic and social spectrum.

After leaving the U.S. Marines, Dennis’ health began to decline. His weight jumped to nearly 350 pounds, he developed high blood pressure, and became diabetic. Despite becoming vegetarian and losing weight for about a year, the lack of structure and guidance led him back to his old ways. A few years later, he nearly suffered a heart attack and was told he needed a double stent or bypass surgery. Neither options were ideal, and Dennis faced taking medications and making a significant lifestyle change. One day, while looking for a healthy plant-based restaurant, he discovered GreenFare. There, he saw a flyer for Barnard Medical Center and Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and took their 21-day challenge.

Having faced his own mortality, Dennis woke up to making a drastic change, became a Food & Lifestyle Coach and Food for Life (FFL) instructor, and hasnt looked back since. Today, he teaches, coaches, and speaks about food because of a desire to improve people’s health and quality of life. Working under the guidelines of the American Diabetes Association, he also moderates a diabetes peer support group for the Barnard Medical Center. From people in cities and suburbs to those in rural America, Dennis hasnt forgotten his roots. He considers himself a simple country boy from North Carolina, who loves his bluegrass, blues, jazz, classical, and occasional gangsta rap. When not working, he can be found doing landscape photography with one of his many film cameras. But most of all, Dennis loves seeing people get healthier and improving the quality of their lives.


“My goal is to get you to add more plants to your diet, not to convert you to anything. As a result of lifestyle changes I made, my blood pressure is lower, my cholesterol is normal, my diabetes numbers are nearly back to a non-diabetes level, and my heart is functioning like a champion. I’m living proof this information and this lifestyle WORKS. Invite your friends and loved ones to join you on this march to health. Whether it’s one or all of the classes, I look forward to meeting you!” - Dennis Jones, Instructor
