The proof is in the results. The patients in Dr. Esselstyn’s initial study came to him with advanced coronary artery disease. Despite the aggressive treatment they received, among them bypasses and angioplasties, 5 of the original group were told by their cardiologists they had less than a year to live. Within months on Dr. Esselstyn’s program, their cholesterol levels, angina symptoms, and blood flow improved dramatically. Twelve years later 17 compliant patients had no further cardiac events. Adherent patients survived beyond twenty years free of symptoms.
Part of the value of science is to help us to understand the powerful effects of the diet choices we make each day—and how changing these may dramatically improve our health and well-being. These improvements occur more quickly than once believed possible. Connect the dots between what you eat and how you feel. Eat predominantly fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and soy products. These foods are rich in good carbs, good fats, good proteins, and other protective substances. There are at least 100,000 substances in these foods that have powerful anti-cancer, anti-heart-disease and anti-aging properties.
For most new vegans, their metamorphosis means more than just saying so long to hot dogs and ham and cheese sandwiches. Becoming vegan encompasses health concerns, environmentalism, and animal rights. This way of living and being in the world will bring personal, emotional, physical, and global benefits. No one can tell you exactly how these changes will occur in your life, because each individual has a unique set of circumstances to consider. Just remember, every step toward a vegan lifestyle is a positive step for yourself and the greater world around you.
I often ask patients to compare their coronary artery disease to a house fire. Your house is on fire because eating meat and dairy products has given you heart disease. You are spraying gasoline on the fire by continuing to eat the very same foods that caused the disease in the first place. Stopping the gasoline puts out the fire. Eating a plant-based diet will end heart disease. If you eat to save your heart, you can cut health care costs and save yourself from other diseases of nutritional extravagance: strokes, hypertension, obesity, osteoporosis, adult-onset diabetes, and cancer.
On a plant-based diet, you will lose weight easily, your skin will absolutely glow, you will have tons of energy, and you will become more sensitive to all the important things in life—like love, nature, and your deepest, truest self. The journey starts today.
Here are some reminders to guide you along your way:
It's clear what you need to do if you want to reduce your risk of chronic disease - Eat more plant foods and less meat.
This is the equivalent of no more than one bacon roll or 1 lamb chop or 1 big mac per day.
That means you should at least be vegan for at least two meals a day such as Breakfast and lunch and only have a small portion meat for one meal a day.
There is still no safe advisory level for meat eating, the scientists will only confirm that risk significantly increases after 70g of meat per day.
There is mounting evidence that Plantarian style diets that avoid all saturated animal fat products and replace animal products and meat with natural wholefoods from plants can actually reverse the symptoms of heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
In the Oxford /Epic study it has been shown that a 22% reduction in risk of dying from heart disease can be attributed to eating at least 8 portions of fruit and vegetables per day.
The safest thing to do is to avoid all meat and dairy and eat a variety of different Plantarian foods.
