My family physician prescribed me a statin, which was told would help “control” my TC but not reverse the condition. Weeks later… Read more or comment “Stephen T”
Protective Diet saved my life. Baked chips entered my kitchen in March 2013 when Julie, the creator of the Protective Diet, suggested I try baking my own from a vegan weight loss group. In May 2013 I went 95% Protective Diet. I had considered my diet healthy as a 14 year vegan and gluten-free for… Read more or comment “PD for Life!”
