EUGENE, Ore. - Brian Gaudette had health problems.
"I got really, really sick," he recalled. "I was about 50 pounds heavier than I am now, my brain stopped working. I was having anxiety attacks. I was just really unhealthy."
His doctor told him he wouldn't be able to fly as a pilot in the Army anymore.
That's when he shifted gears.
"We are launching our clean eating food truck, Captain Soup," he said. "We have the nice bone broth, organic veggies, all local meat, clean, healthy eating for people."
The truck sits on the corner of 11th Avenue and Chambers Street.
After five weeks on the soups, Gaudette said he wasn't diabetic anymore. He wasn't even pre-diabetic.
"Millions of people have been using whole foods to heal from chronic illnesses, so I gave it a shot," he said. "If other people weren't healing and thriving, I wouldn't be doing this."
Gaudette is still an active duty captain in the Army and is currently attending the University of Oregon for his MBA.
