Re: Vegetarian Cruising

I started a whole-foods plant-based diet 7 months ago... No fried foods, minimal refined sugars or processed foods, no meat, eggs, dairy, avoiding even plant-based saturated fats and trans-fats. We have been exploring new foods and enjoying eating just as much, if not more, than before.

I'm 60 years old, on no meds (and trying to avoid them). Some data points for consideration for those who doubt:

First number is 45 days after starting the diet, second number (in parenthesis) is 6 months later:
Cholesterol 182 (124)
Triglycerides 247 (108)
LDL 93 (66)
