I've been taking care of my mama for almost 2 weeks now and plan to fly back to Raleigh next Sunday. She is a fabulous and healthy cook. Having to deal with needing a pacemaker and then a trip back to the hospital with complications, has meant I've either cooked or dined out too much of the time. Glad she is back in the kitchen.
Spent the afternoon with a dear childhood friend who is also an infectious disease MD, and for the last 2 years, a vegan. How did I not know that. She encouraged me to watch Forks Over Knives, something my own brother, also an MD, and my daughters have also encouraged me to view. The docs views are that it so rapidly and radically improves blood chemistry and cardiac functions like BP, it can't be ignored. So..........I'll watch it.
What I don't want to be is another reed blowing in the wind at another diet. My weight has been stable for almost 4 months now. I am ready to head on down that path, another 5 at a time.
Are any of you doing the vegetarian or vegan thing?
