Ok, I lost 32 lbs, my cholesterol went from 188, to 150, my A1C was 6.5 and is now 5.2, that is the blood test that tells what your blood sugar was over the past 3 months, so it shows I am no longer diabetic.
the PA (physician's assistant) seemed impressed and asked what I did, so I was able to share my plant based diet experience with her. She was however not interested enough to find out who or how or books or dvd's on it, and said she was glad I found something that worked for me.
This works for hundreds of thousands of people, and Dr. McDougall hasn't found anyone yet that it doesn't work for, unless they just aren't interested in pursuing it.
anyway.. I am happy!
