Hello from Chicago

Post by 10Fold » Thu May 18, 2017 7:54 pm

I'm 51, went vegan April 2016 because of my cholesterol and triglycerides. Doctor wanted me to go on pills, but I'd seen the vegan docs on Netflix and I put two and two together and decided to go vegan. My 10 year daughter went along for the ride, to encourage me.

When I went back for a six month follow-up, my cholesterol went down 100 points and my triglycerides were normal, lost 20-something pounds, etc.

So I started strictly for the health benefits, but stayed for all the other reasons, too.
