I have been following your blog for the last year. I love your posts! My husband and I are both in health care. Your evidenced based posts are excellent! In the past year I have adopted plant based protein, and my husband "converted" in the last 5 months. We have now moved to no oil. Both of us dropped our lipid numbers and I am now off of my BP meds. He had dropped 60 lbs before no animal protein through exercise and cleaning up the garbage diet, another 12 has dropped from no animal protein. Feels better and performance on the bike is amazing. He now believes all the vegan athlete comments of "improved recovery and decreased muscle aches post work out" I am 6 + months recovery from an ACL replacement(donor graft) and meniscus repair. I am convinced my great recovery is attributed to my diet pre injury and post. Yes, I did have an excellent ortho and PT, however, I believe the diet had a great deal to do with my energy and stamina in the recovery phase! I am now back on the bike (50 or so miles a week), doing yoga 2-3 x/week (took your suggestion and am so pleased!) My doc said I can ski in December with my brace! Original time frame was march of 2012. You inspire me with your health and embracement of life. I will be 50 this year and I plan to be the active 60,70, and 80 year old! Thanks for all you do!
