That Vegan Conversation Show Notes

We’ve all had that conversation at one point or another, trying to explain WHY we are vegan or why we are on this crazy new Plant-Based Diet.

How do you respond to that?

What is YOUR response?  Be sure and comment, I’d love to hear how you handle it.

This is the conversation I had with a friend some time ago and how I explained it.

Links & Resources

Here are some of the resources I mentioned in the podcast where you can find additional information.

Dr. John McDougall, MD

Dr. McDougall is a Plant-Based Doctor and author of several books, including  “The Starch Solution” who has been teaching his starch-based diet now for over 40 years via his intensive 10-day Live-In Program in Santa Rosa, CA.   His entire program can be found for free on his website.

Dr. Neal Barnard, MD

Dr. Barnard is another Plant-Based Doctor, author of many books including “Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes”, and is also President of the esteemed Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine.

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, MD

Dr. Esselstyn is a Plant-Based Doctor and author best known for his landmark study and book (Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease) involving patients with advanced heart disease from his practice as a heart surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic.  All of those who followed his plant-based no-oil diet experienced significant improvement, in some cases actual reversal.

Nutrition Facts

Nutrition Facts is a non-commercial, science-based, public service provided by plant-based doctor and author Dr. Michael Greger that provides free updates on the latest in nutrition research.

Type 2 Diabetes

I know the discussion around Type 2 Diabetes and sugar can quickly turn into a heated debate.  So here is an excellent TED Talk by Dr. Neal Barnard MD, explaining the real cause of Type 2 Diabetes and how to potentially reverse it.
