Cowboy Embraces Veganism
Posted Friday, January 8, 2010 at 3:43 PM
From Meatout Mondays:
Rocco was a meat-loving cowboy... and he was dangerously unhealthy. A scan of his heart revealed that he was in the 97th percentile for plaque in his arteries, meaning only 3 percent of the population in his age group have more plaque in their arteries. Making an appearance on the Dr. Oz show, Rocco was challenged to drop meat, eggs, and dairy from his diet for 28 days. According to Dr. Oz, 52 year-old Rocco had the heart of an 85 year old man and needed to change his diet to reverse dangerous heart disease.
After just 28 days on a vegan diet, Rocco’s waist size decreased by 6 inches, his weight decreased from 265 to 235 pounds (a total of 30 pounds!!!). His glucose levels dropped from 172 to 99, and he went from being in the diabetic range to within normal limits – in only 28 days! He has improved so much, he has now decided to stick to the diet. Rocco’s health has improved dramatically and will continue to get even better.
