Saved my life!!!!

by Ted
(Cape Cod, Massachusetts)

I am a 36 year old man, married with 2 children. I am 6'4" tall, and last year at this time I weighed 291 Lbs. I continued to weigh that until the end of this summer when I decided that I needed a drastic change in my life. When I found myself out of breath chasing 6 and 3 year old kids on the beach, I felt terrible. Along with being Obese, my Cholesterol was 230, my LDL was 110, and my blood pressure was 130 over 90. On August 27th, 2010 I switched to the vegan way of life. Over the past three months I have lost 60 LBs, lowered by cholesterol to 165, my LDL to 65, and my blood pressure to 112 over 65. Vegan is the only way to live, and that's where I will be for the rest of my life. I have to thank authors books by Brendan Brazier, and Rip Esselstyn for their amazing work and insight!!!!!!~
