So I've been on the Dr. Esselstyn no oil, vegan diet for 8 weeks now. I had some blood work done this week and here are my 8 week results.

Weight...down 17.6 lbs.

1AC down to 5.6 from 6.7

Cholesterol down to 144 from 159

LDL- CHOL down to 56 from 72

HDL-CHOL is at 34

Triglycerides are still a little high.

According to my doctor, my whole body is making very good improvements and is doing well with this diet. Kidneys are functioning fine, and I should continue exercising to get the triglycerides down. Doctor says to stick with the diet. This is all very good news for me and proof that nutritional therapy does indeed work !!
