Dr. Pinckney     

Just to remember you, I got a partial reversal of coronary
arteries disease about 3 years ago and that I am Vegan for
over 7 years. Maybe I'm feeling the itch of 7 years, in
relation to food, but the truth is that in the last seven
years I have been 99.9% Vegan and followed the standards of
low-fat, plant-based food, (no meat, milk or eggs).

My total cholesterol is 100, far below the famous 150
indicating process of reversal of cholesterol stored in
arteries. My weight is down to 77 kg for 1.83 meters tall.

Perhaps because having very low total cholesterol and very low
weight (77kg for 1.83 meters tall), I would like to know if I
could eat chocolate ice cream and also french bread (refined
flour and salt, no fat). Could my crave be due to my body
calories needs, hence the crave to eat chocolate and bread
during the day?

I need your comments if I'm breaking or not the possibility of
continue achieving the reversal, or if the low total
cholesterol could allow it and if it would be ok to eat
something greasy like ice cream or chocolate bars. Other
products that make me to crave are peanuts and nuts.

I need your thoughts to go or not to go back to very low fat
or if I could keep going for some more fats from plants, like
chocolate and nuts for the calories of them.
