Clear Evidence of Success

Having trouble believing that something as simple as a whole food diet could save your life? Read this outcome for a woman 65 years old:

Dr. Greger’s grandmother, Frances, arrived at the Pritikin Longevity Center in a wheelchair, but within three weeks of eating a purely plant-based diet, “she was not only out of her wheelchair but was walking ten miles a day.” Frances lived another 28 years after switching to a plant-based diet, despite her “medical death sentence” at age 65.

How will I get protien?

Many would be surprised to learn that eating a whole food plant based diet diet that is well rounded in beans, legumes, fruits and vegetables will more than adequately meet your body’s protein needs. Consult a dietitian to determine the right protein intake level for you.

The only supplement you will need to take if you go 100% plant based as your food source is Vitamin B12. Of course all Canadians whether they eat animal products or not, should be taking Vitamin D- see Health Canada’s website for more information.

Refer to nutritionfacts.org for info from Dr. Michael Greger MD about evidence based science on adequate protein intake.

Below are some resources for research and evidence to support the effectiveness of a whole food plant based diet:

Ornish Lifestyle Medicine has been scientifically proven to reverse the progression of even severe coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, and high blood pressure as well as to slow, stop, or even reverse the progression of early-stage prostate cancer in a series of randomized controlled trials published in leading peer-reviewed journals.

Lifestyle choices, including a healthful diet and exercise, may prevent four out of five heart attacks, according to an article published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Researchers assessed five modifiable health factors among 20,721 men for 11 years. Those who avoided smoking, had moderate alcohol intake, exercised, had the least amount of belly fat, and consumed the most fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes had an 86 percent lower risk for a heart attack, compared with those who did not meet these criteria.

For decades Dr. T. Colin Campbell has been at the forefront of nutrition education and research. Dr. Campbell’s expertise and scientific interests encompass relationships between diet and diseases, particularly the causation of cancer. His legacy, the China Project, is one of the most comprehensive studies of health and nutrition ever conducted.

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr.

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease is based on the groundbreaking results of his twenty-year nutritional study. It illustrates that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only prevent the progression of heart disease but can also reverse its effects.

Within months of starting the program, all Dr. Esselstyn’s patients began to improve dramatically, and twenty years later, they remain free of symptoms. This group includes a number of patients who had been told by their cardiologists that they had less than a year to live.
