  • Plant Based Diet After Losing My Dad to His Third Heart Attack

    In 2021, I lost my dad to his third heart attack. He was just 52, but he was diabetic and obese. I knew that this could be my fate, too. At the time I was eating fast almost every day. I’m talking Supersonic double cheeseburgers, six mozzarella sticks, and a large shake after 8:30 at night up to five times a week. That’s not to mention massive breakfasts and lunches, all containing meat, and candy throughout the day.

    The next day, I noticed how exhausted I felt just carrying my 3-year-old boy upstairs. That was it. I decided I wanted to be around as long as possible for my son, and that meant getting healthier. I switched to a whole-food, plant-based diet overnight.

    After a week, I noticed I had more energy. I woke up feeling more refreshed and less groggy. Even my mood was improving. As the pounds started to fall off, I felt like I was becoming me again. I started walking a few miles each day, and I found it easier to walk long distances as the months went on. My self-confidence was growing week after week. The feeling was amazing.

  • Advantages of a Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet

    Many popular books, magazines and websites claim that we have bee following expert medical advice since the 1970s and we are unhealthier than ever. They declare that the idea that saturated fats and cholesterol cause heart disease is the greatest scientific deception of our times and that a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet is essential for our well-being.

    These views have become accepted as the truth. Instead of informing our society about healthy dietary choices, they are causing widespread harm.

    These views are based on myths, fabrications and a distortion of facts.

    However, standard medical advice has not been helpful in reducing the rising prevalence of obesity, diabetes and autoimmune diseases. This advice often contains guidance such as “everything in moderation” and that we need to be “practical” and “flexible”. Advice that is not very constructive.

    Fortunately, the diets that are optimal for our health are also the best for the environment and for the animals that we share the earth with.

  • Tim Kaufman – Disabled to Ironman

    Walking out of the doctor’s office, reality had finally sunk in. I was not going to be around for another year. My wife and kids would very likely not have a husband or father within the year. My blood pressure was 255/115, and I was on three medications to bring it down. My cholesterol (300 mg/dL, 7.8mmol/L) and triglycerides (279 mg/dL, 3.15mmol/L) were off the charts. Aside from a heavy load of prescribed medications, I was also self-medicating and struggling with addictions of all kinds.

    My weight became so out of control that the doctor could no longer weigh me in his office. I had trouble breathing and suffered from severe sleep apnea.

    I was born with a genetic disorder called Elhers-Danlos syndrome, and my joints are very loose and hypermobile. The excess weight was too much for my already destroyed joints to handle. I was constantly on crutches, canes, and immobilizers. I was cast and fitted for very expensive leg braces that would hold my legs from buckling. My wife was actually putting my socks and shoes on for me in the morning. Nothing was working, and my life was spiraling out of control.
