San Francisco Vegan Chiropractor comments on the benefits of eating a diet centered around Plant Foods:
I am asked frequently by old friends, patients, and relatives, how I stay so slim. But, when I try to tell them I am a vegetarian...they go into kind of a daze...and seem to lose interest in the conversation. It seems that everyone is always looking for that magic bullet...that new diet that allows you to still eat junk and lose weight at the same time. This is why fad diets are so popular.
Anyway...some people listen, and lots of people read this blog that are searching the internet for information on back and wrist pain nutrition, and specifically...plant based nutrition. So I share what I know...most of which I learned for a medical doctor named John McDougall, M.D.
I was first introduced to the McDougall Program when I was in chiropractic college, and I have been with the program ever since.
Dr. McDougall has a monthly newsletter that I recommend you subscribe to. In last Septembers issue there is a great article entitled:
If I Could Be Your Doctor, I Would Love to Tell You How:
To Lose Excess Weight Effortlessly, Painlessly, and Permanently
I tell people to give the diet a shot for 60 days. After 60 days...chances are you will look better, feel better, and weigh less. It's worth a shot .
