Posted on October 05, 2010 by The VRG Blog Editor

Click here to see Bill Clinton speak with Wolf Blitzer about adopting a plant-based diet after his bypass surgery.

Clinton says:

I went on essentially a plant-based diet. I live on beans, legumes, vegetables, fruit, I drink a protein supplement every morning – no dairy – I drink almond milk mixed in with fruit and a protein powder, so I get the protein for the day when I start the day out, and it changed my whole metabolism and I lost 24 pounds [...]

I did all this research, and I saw that 82 percent of the people since 1986 who have gone on a plant-base, no dairy, no meat of any kind, no chicken, no turkey – I eat very little fish, once in a while I’ll have a little fish – if you can do it, 82 percent of people have begun to heal themselves
