My Vegan Experiment Is Finished… Kind Of
Today marks the end of my vegan experiment… kind of. I’ll be going for blood work later today, and once the results are back I’ll meet with my doctor to chat about the effects of my diet this past month. It has been an incredibly interesting experiment. Regardless of what the quantifiable data says when I get my test results, my personal experiences will have lasting effects on my diet. I won’t go into details in this post. Instead, I’ll wait and give my test results and personal observations in a follow-up post. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, I have an interesting link you should check out…
Throughout the experiment I have tried to learn as much as possible about vegan and vegetarian diets and those who follow them. I’ve read a lot of articles, books and blogs, and have watched some informative documentaries. One news piece that caught my attention was The Last Heart Attack, a one hour documentary produced by Dr Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent for CNN. It has aired several times and CNN has now made it available to watch online.
In this hour-long CNN documentary, Sanjay Gupta investigates whether diet and the latest diagnostic tests are enough to prevent every heart attack. During the medical journey of discovery, Dr. Gupta talks to former President Clinton, leading doctors and puts his own heart under the microscope as he offers practical advice and hard science to shows how we could have…The Last Heart Attack.
Before I sign off, I thought I’d share some pics of vegan meals and snacks I’ve enjoyed this past month. There is certainly no shortage of yummy plant-based foods out there. Enjoy.
Stay tuned for the results of the experiment.
