Every Friday we like to feature some good news from the Engine 2 community. Today we hear from Lindsay about her husbands incredible success.
“One month ago my husband’s cholesterol test came back at 340. This came as an extreme shock to me considering that he is 30 years old, weighs 170 lbs at six feet tall, works out an average of 5 days a week (including running), and never ate red meat except for the rare special occasion.
I quickly went to my sister who is a dietitian and she started telling me about how important it is to stay away from added sugars and other processed foods. She sparked my interest and after some digging around I found your website, which immediately hooked me. I got my husband on board by watching Forks Over Knives and showing him that a firehouse full of Texas men are doing it.
After only 4 weeks of following a plant-based diet, his cholesterol was tested again this morning and is down to 214 already! On top of that, he hasn’t lost any weight (which is a good thing) or felt any lack of energy. We love the partnership you have developed with Whole Foods and have relied on their products together with your book to get us through this challenge. The best part for me has been discovering that we can still thoroughly enjoy food.
I’m amazed at what a difference a plant-based diet can do in such a short amount of time.
