30 Bananas a Day!

  I am 62. I have been on Raw (fruit) all day till dinner(then big salad or veggy soup) for about 2 years now.  Lost 90 lbs. BMI is 23  Feel great.

Started practicing Kung Fu.  More active now, like I was in my 20's.

Blood work has improved drastically. Total cholesterol went from 200 to 89.

LDL is 32, hDL is 55  Triglycerides  went from 197 to 80.

Still on lots of meds.  Doc won't let me stop them.  

Doc is happy but a little clueless. At my visit yesterday, he actually asked me "Where do you get your protein?"  I was a bit shocked.  Could hardly believe my ears. I think he thinks its the meds making my blood numbers better.

But I know better.  my blood numbers did not start getting better till I eliminated ALL animal products, oils and processed food, just like the whole food gurus said it would.

So to anyone just starting out on whole foods.  You are on your own.  Educate yourself, read everything you can on a whole food low fat vegan topics, because doctors don't know everything.  

Eat living plants to be alive.  Eat dead things to be dead.

my 2 cents

Wow! Maybe see a different dr. Congrats on ur fat loss and ur blood work

i agree with sherri  go to different doctor and see if you can get off all meds   :  )

congrats !  

I would go to see a different doctor if i was you

I agree with everyone, go see a different doctor! From what I can see there is absolutely no reason why you should be on medication, except that he needs to make another car payment,...

I might agree with others its time to taper the meds.  Perhaps start with lower dosage for a few weeks, and wean off.  (You might not want to shock body or go into withdrawals)

Your numbers are also starting to get low.  We dont want to get too low on body lipids as these are important for long term health and success with regulation of hormones, healthy cells, and fat soluble nutrients like vitamin D.  

Other than that, good for you on your success!

Peace, PK

Thanks for all of your feedback.  I am alone here with being Vegan.  NO coworkers or family members are educating themselves about nutrition.  So important.  30 Bananas  a day is a great place.

 I am glad I found it.

Depending on what medications you're taking it may not be a good idea to stop them all at once... But clearly you should aim at lowering your dosages. So find another understanding doctor, explain what your goals are, and see how you can get there with him.
