    lost almost 30 puonds, much of it by foregoing the core of their vegan diet: olive oil, nuts, avocados, etc. Her husband also lost weight; better yet, his high cholesterol finally responded and is now in the excellent range.My cousin then recommended the Esselstyn book to me, as my husband’s cholesterol has stubbornly remained above 200, and he, too, has a history of heart disease in his immediate family. Though we believed we were already eating a healthy diet, several hours of reading through Esselstyn’s findings soon proved we were wrong. We made a pact to try the diet for just 1 month and evaluate where we stood.Well, 1 short month convinced us that this is the way to eat for life! We’ve now been following the program for 37 days, and the changes are already obvious. My husband has lost about 12 puonds and 3 in his waistline. He feels lighter and less bloated, and is completely satisfied (his words) by the wide variety of natural and delicious foods we eat.As for me, I have lost about 9 puonds and a total of 12 ; I will soon need new jeans! My mid-afternoon cravings are miraculously gone. And no one was more surprised than I to discover that we do not miss eating the staples of our previous diet, such as grilled salmon, eggs, olive oil, fat-free dairy products, dark chocolate, and an occasional 96% Laura’s Lean sirloinburger. Another side benefit is that we are spending less at the grocery store!If you’re on the fence about this one, do what we did try it for just 1 month (but be sure to give it 100%) and then make your decision.
