    We couldn’t believe it when my coworker shared with me regarding the diet plan “sowo hope site” he’d found. Search it on Google. I started using it too, along with the results have been unbelievable. We dropped 13 pounds.

    I am a plant based vegan, but I want to know why doctors don't know this information. I have been thru hell with doctors due to a chronic pain issue. These guys tortured me, and gave me lots of drugs. It got to the point where I became afraid of doctors and needles, like PTSD. Then they accused me of being a felon looking to get more drugs when I had to go to the ER, sick as a dog from the cocktail of drugs they gave me. Then I was misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia and given more drugs for that. The meds made me crazy, depressed, angry, and sick. I got much better when I refused the drugs and became a vegan. It is very disturbing that doctors are hurting people in this way, and do not have nutrition information, or refuse to implement it in their patients' treatment. Now I question everything my doctor tells me, and I do my own research. Sometimes doctors do more harm than good, even if it is unintentional.

      It is absolutely horrible. My dr. kept sending me to specialists and pain doctors, and nothing ever got better. They made me worse, and then I had to pay for it!! I had some horrible tests and drugs.

      petmom ful Exactly! Thanks for sharing. It's crazy that doctors are so misinformed or just care more about pushing drugs.

    I am a vegan and I know vegan diet works but it is very hard for me to change my family and friends since I am not a doctor . Animal products is very addictive and I am only one person . I been overwhelmed to see people around me suffer and I cannot do anything to change their mind .

    I also think a vegan diet is not enough if we're really serious in being really fit and healthy . There are other important things like drinking plenty of plain water regularly , quality sleep , plenty of sunshine , exercise and lots of fresh air .

      I did ask my children to all go home and watch Forks over Knives. They said they would. But they see me eating vegan and think it is crazy. I fell off the wagon over Halloween and now I am trying again. This Xmas they will see me eating low fat vegan. I am following the Dr. John Mcdougall plan, and it makes perfect sense. Anyone can check out his websit at drmcdougall.com

      +cybercity1984 I feel the same. I see family members smoking, eating lots of junk food, drinking soda, eating meat, drinking glasses of milk, and eating egg omelets. They think I am crazy for being a vegan, and I am their mom? Oh, well, I can only lead by example.

    According to Dr Michael Greger, bec. it can be hard to find differences in longevity among vegans and health conscious eaters, vegans should watch out for some deficiencies by taking epa/dha, vitamin d, etc. and vitamin b12 supplement is always needed. If vegans are low in epa/dha in spite of eating flax seed, can maybe take a epa/dha supplement. People who give up fatty fish like sardines will lose one source of vitamin d. There are now brands of mushrooms with 100% vitamin d so it might be a good idea to try to eat cooked mushrooms every day.

      +prefertoxic You may need to supplement even so. Fir example, if you have dark skin and/or live in Northern latitudes and it's Winter. Or if there is a lot of atmospheric pollution where you live.

      +colonyofcells del machine What about just going out for at least 15 minutes? You need nothing to get vitamin D.

    As the good doctor is at pains to point out, AICR recommends a BMI of just above 18.5 for maximum Cancer prevention. That is not just a "healthy weight". It is a minimal weight. Nearly everyone needs to lose a lot of weight.
