I have indeed been a Vegan since June 4th; today marks my 16th day! Dr. Esselstyn has opened the eyes of many; that is including me. You may want to be introduced to his work and research by watching this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNeWCvLZaFM. Just to give you an idea of how effective this Vegan diet is; former President Bill Clinton, famously known for his love for fast foods is also a Vegan http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zQAOQRpG8k&feature=endscreen.
My son Angelo is following a very close Vegan diet; just a couple of days ago I registered him at Vidant Wellness Center. At Vidant before you are allow to exercise there, they go over all of those numbers that count, cholesterol included. Angelo’s numbers are better than when he was 12 years old. At 12 he was a chubby kid with borderline cholesterol level. At 18 he is a very healthy young man! My wife; who is a medical doctor, dropped 28 points on her cholesterol in three weeks following the Vegan diet; she went from 178 to 150.
My numbers were very, very bad; but looking at my son and my wife gives me great hope that I am indeed moving in the right direction. I continue to exercise, but also I am eating right and I can see results again. I lost eleven pounds already! Soon I will be going back to the doctor to check all of those numbers that count.
I sense that God wants to do something amazing in this region; yesterday I received a powerful word from the Lord concerning Revival. Beloved, we can’t let the devil kill us; I want to be a part of what God is doing.
I will continue giving you all honest updates in weeks to come. For now God bless you and thank you all for your prayers!
