Veteran of many plans, all of which failed to be sustainable. Any extremes (veganism, LCHF, LCLF) all left worsening problems in their wake, especially my diabetes control. So, came up w/ a plan of my own based on the Ornish Spectrum, using groups 1 and 2 (long lists; best source is the Spectrum website)--that way I still get plenty of protein w/ very little cholesterol, using small amts of healthy fats to replace some of the carbs in his basic VLF plan.
That being said, this plan is almost but not quite vegetarian--I use fish oil and gelatin. I also use egg substitute, LOTS of fat-free dairy, and beans/lentils for most of my carbs w/ a little oat bran and occasional low-glycemic fruit. Intend to not return to eating meat etc for at least 6 weeks; will see how it goes--I have usually felt best eating ovolacto.
Please wish me luck.

Peace out,
Mary S.
