What is Bien Plantado?
Learn about the history of how Bien Plantado was created.
Bien Plantado was born as a public health initiative in response to the growing crisis that Latinos around the world are experiencing. In the current context we are losing our lives to diseases and conditions that are entirely preventable, and for the most part reversible, with effective lifestyle interventions.
The Bien Plantado project was officially founded in 2019 by Dr. Adriana Cortés together with his mother, Carmenza de Cortés, as a strategy to improve people’s quality of life. This was evident when Carmenza overcame rheumatoid arthritis with Sjogren’s syndrome in 2008 thanks to the transformative power of food. In 2015, after seven years of Carmenza being symptom-free and able to prevent the inflammation and joint deformities typical of this disease, the project was born in the hearts of its founders with the vision of transmitting this powerful information to the Latin American public.
As of 2017, Dr. Adriana Cortés began teaching nutrition to patients in a highly effective way and over the next few years transformed the lives of more than a hundred patients through simple and successful education. (See success stories).
After more than 80% of the patients transformed their diet to 100% from one day to the next, at Bien Plantado we started to look at the possibilities of providing this same education on a group level to have a wider reach and benefit more people with this powerful information.
When we delivered our first seminar in 2019 to a group of athletes and sportspeople, who achieved excellent results in terms of their physical performance, we realised that the supportive community that followed was just as vital to leading a healthy lifestyle in a more fun and sustained way.
Educational virtual meetings with our community
At the beginning of 2020, we decided to deepen our knowledge of the practical aspects of healthy eating, so that we could teach our patients how to prepare their food in their kitchens in a nutritious and delicious way.
In this way, Bien Plantado begins to give group nutrition courses online, being able to provide more than 40 of these sessions and teach more than 1800 Latinos, who received this same educational strategy in different countries such as Colombia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Venezuela, Guatemala and the United States, among others.
Thus, Bien Plantado
It is constituted as a company in Colombia dedicated to the education of the three most relevant aspects of lifestyle to experience optimal health, which allows not only to prevent but to stop the progress or reverse the most prevalent chronic degenerative diseases today.
Bien Plantado teaches the concepts of nutrition, stress management and exercise habits in an easy-to-understand and interactive way in an individual or group format through virtual programmes or virtual counselling.
Its programmes are designed so that each participant gets the information to make the change from one day to the next in their diet and then receive ongoing support in their change phase within a community with similar interests and goals.

At Bien Plantado we know from experience that once individuals make lifestyle changes, they begin to reap results quickly, making them want to teach these learnings to their families and communities. By empowering participants in our community to teach these concepts in an effective way, we are creating Well Planted Leaders who are achieving the public health goal that has Bien Plantado.
At BIEN PLANTADO we teach people to achieve positive results in their physical, mental and emotional health through changes in their current habits in the three fundamental areas of lifestyle: nutrition, stress management and exercise. We accompany people in their transition process to achieve a lasting transformation towards building a truly healthy lifestyle.

"When I came across this information from Bien Plantado, and I realised that I really needed to learn more things, a lot more information about nutrition, about real human nutrition.
"I met Dr. Adriana and from then on it was practically mental clarity. I understood everything and I understood how chronic diseases are generated".
"I have never, ever heard such a clear topic, such a clear explanation about the way you feed yourself. The change in my life has been total".
"As a result of the change in diet, I have lost 24 kilos in the space of five months and it has changed my life, it has been a radical change in my life".
"When I was 14 years old I decided to put my feet on the ground and change my diet... Everything has been a radical change from the moment I started Bien Plantado".
"Now with this new diet, I eat what I want, without measuring, without guilt, because now I'm eating what my body needs and the best thing is that my weight is under control.
"As a nutritionist, I recommend that everyone can do it because it's going to make a big difference. Understanding how our body works, the things it needs, how it reacts and doing the test is going to make a big difference".
