- December 2014 Physical:
- Weight 190 lbs
- Cholesterol 170
- BP - borderline hypertension and on medication
- May 2015 went Vegan, mostly follwing Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn Jr.'s book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease: The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-based cure.
- March 2016 Physical:
- Weight 165 lbs (that was my weight in '79)
- Cholesterol 151
- Off BP meds, and off all medication, started taking some B12
Besides the Esselstyn book, my main source for recipes has been Amy Cramer's The Vegan Cheat Sheet: Your Take-everywhere Guide to Plant-based eating. The rest is online research, often prompted by any new fruit or vegetable I see in the stores, and start wondering how I can prepare it.
