I have been eating in a vegetarian fat free manner for around 10 weeks and
the results have been marvelous. I lost 18 pounds and my cholesterol went
down 100 points. I had a heart attack last September and a stent was put in
my LAD artery which was 100% blocked. About two and half months ago I
bought Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn's book and began to follow his dietary
suggestions. I also went back to the gym where I used to work out and began
a fitness regimen.

On Easter I prepared the turkey and my wife cooked the fixings for a family
get together. I decided I could eat some turkey and so on for this one day. So
I did. I felt sick afterwards. This amazed me, since I didn't really eat that
much. I am not sure it is safe to deviate from the diet even on several
holidays per year. I wonder if a meal like that can undo some of the good
following Dr, Esselstyn's suggestions and using recipes from this website had
done for me.
