Plant-based diets and heart disease

By Blogger September 20, 2012 - 1:02pm

Hi all, I'm curious how many of you eat a vegan diet. I read the book "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, and have been working towards veganism. I am not 100% there yet because I still eat some cheese on occasion, but I do believe that eating a plant-based diet is healthier for us and the planet. I'd be happy to share thoughts and information with anyone who is interested.

Hi wholeheartedhealth

Thanks for this post!

I am not vegan, I am like you, with limited dairy (no eggs and a drop of skim milk in tea and the occasional yoghurt) but I've no plans on giving it up as it doesn't impact my health negatively (and good, unprocessed cheese is fabulous!)

I hope others who read this post and who are fully vegan can share their opinions with us!
