Hello, I'm a physician in the Los Angeles area. I advocate a plant-based (kind) diet. I am doing a mini-experiment for those wishing to transition to a plant-based lifestyle. We will be looking at the health benefits of a "kind" diet. We will be measuring various biomarkers (via bloodwork) as well as carotid artery ultrasounds. It is a 60 day trial. If you know someone that may be interested, please contact me. You can also learn more on my blog: www.theplantrx.com.
I've also been asked if one can participate if they do not live in the L.A area. My preference is that you do such that I can be more useful to you as well as the other people participating. That being said, I'm not completely opposed but I am slightly hesitant so we look at it on a case by case basis.
There's no hard work really except a few needle sticks and sharing your experience with others :) Otherwise, you are just switching your diet for 60 days!
It's going to be a fun experiment and I bet you can already guess what we think the results will be. But as they say...the proof is in the vegan pudding!
P.S. If anyone else would like to participate with our group as an advisor, etc we should talk too. I know a few chef's have offered our newbies cooking classes which will be a huge help and a great experience. We will be featuring these events on the blog too!
