Thirty six years ago, I would have died. I was only 44 years old and had just been diagnosed with severe heart disease, high blood pressure, Thyroid Cancer, pre diabetes and I was almost 55 lbs. overweight. I was an aerobic instructor teaching 25 classes of aerobics per week. I thought I was eating a healthy diet of chicken, cheese, yogurt and ice cream. Luckily for me, my then new neighbor told me about Dr. John McDougall and I read his book. I could not believe that his patients were all getting over cancer, heart disease, diabetes and all chronic diseases. I jumped right in and never went back for more radiation and now I have perfect health. I just had to change to a starch based, whole food plant exclusive diet without oil. Now, at 80 I have great health and energy and still teach aerobics.

I went 100% plant-based in 2015 due to witnessing my parents’ declining health due to heart disease, diabetes and dementia. I am the eldest of 8 and the only one of my siblings who takes no meds or has any medical issues of any kind. I have more energy than even my youngest sister.

Went vegan almost ten years ago after watching What The Health and it was the best decision I’ve ever made! I do it for the animals for the planet and for my health!

Vegan 8 years. Living it with my family of three!

I actually did it! I broke free from eating animals and animal products! And I love it!

I will share only one of the many benefits a WFPB diet gave me. For over 15 years I strenuously trained in those chi kung and tai chi exercises without ever being able to settle and build up, harness and circulate my mind/energy/chi throughout my body in a natural, easy and smooth way. All this started to change when I adopted a WFPB lifestyle almost 4 years ago 🙂 I can now teach what I learned, finally…

I’m a 63 year-old male, 22 or better BMI most of my life and I’ve had atrial fibrillation for 32 years. The AF started as paroxysmal and had become permanent in the past ten years or so. About 8 months ago I stated having angina, I had 225 total cholesterol and 133 LDL and was pre-diabetic. I could no longer hike the mountains around my home that I loved and instead hiked a bit and read a book in the forest. Four months ago, an angiogram showed 50-60% blockage in my LAD. Thankfully, no stent was needed but I changed to a WFPB, no oil lifestyle and within the first two weeks lost the angina, after two months I had 126 Total Cholesterol and 58 LDL (without statins), in the “heart-attack” proof category and am so relieved. I’m again able to hike mountains that I’ve not done for at least ten years. I follow Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s advice closely and am very thankful to a friend who got off his medications after a triple bypass following this lifestyle who shared this information with me. I’ve had a steady heart rate and minimal AF as revealed by an EKG two months after my angiogram. I have more energy, sleep better, have better skin around my back (no little bumps), my gums have healed very quickly after a tooth extraction, recovery after my long hikes that would have taken three or four days now happens overnight. I’m no longer pre-diabetic and my blood sugar is normal even as I stopped taking Metformin. I’m still on medication for my AF and a blood thinner but am hopeful that these can be reduced or stopped when I see my cardiologist in another four months. I feel as if I’m in my thirties again and would love to have others improve their health as well with this simple (but not easy) lifestyle change.

I started a WFPB diet last October of 2021 due to becoming more and more overweight after my first child was born. I know I needed to make a change and be the best version of myself for my kid and also my wife and family. I’m still learning so much but have gained a tremendous amount of positive feedback from this new lifestyle.

I was tired of being tired, so i switched to a plant based an diet & i feel great!

As a Vegan even Covid 19 can’t shake my immunity and positively thinking neither can any other variant be it a usb kick box it can’t dim this switch. I even feel my Melanoma can all be cured if one lives day by day on a fruit and plant based diet. I eat a plant based diet and most of all this brings me a sense of good Karma, I respect life and all sentient beings as being equally entitled to life. And as a person of faith Human dominion over Animals means for me, as we should interpret it….we must nurture and care for them when they require it by being their care takers and for me this means being anti-specism. I do not eat mammals as a mammal myself for me that is likened to cannibalism. I prefer to mangey leaf.

Hi, my name is Katrina McColloch

I have been vegan since 2017, and I went on a whole foods diet in Dec 2021 since I have lost twenty pounds in less than three months, stopped needing sleeping pills, and no longer experience depression or anxiety, which were problems before. I also feel the same energy level that I had in my twenties now, just a few months into this. Eating healthy makes all of the difference in the world.

It is impossible to fathom the benefits of living “guilt free” until it is experienced.

Living in a self destructive way is the definition of addiction.

The positive healing changes are in every aspect of life and in all dimensions.

I have inner peace, healed issues otherwise uncurable, saved time and money and made real friends based on infinite love and gratitude.

I began to mlm BioLumina Spirulina and Dr. Teruo Higa’s Effective Microorganisms TeraGanix.com ChristBouwsma.newphoenixrising.com

Had fatty liver and poor digestive system. Met Ar Pratiksha ji in a group. Started following her advice to have WFPB diet. No tea or coffee since 1st December 2021. Feeling better
