Obviously no-one would argue against something having to be done if you have heart issues from eating junk food, the point is whether that something had to be going Vegan in order for it to succeed.

"Former US President Bill Clinton recently confirmed that he is indeed eating a MAINLY vegan diet."

I.e. he's NOT vegan!

Re: President shows off trim look after switching to vegan

As clearly said in the video, he eats fish from time to time.

Not easy to lose weight gracefully when you are over a certain age. I've recently lost 8kg, altogether 18 kg over last 3 years. It has almost cured my Type 2 diabetes and has done wonders for my arthritic knees. I look better with clothes on, but I have a scraggy neck and lose skin on my legs and stomach. Hopefully it will tone up as I am very fit and active, and have never had stretch marks. Losing weight can really help with health issues- but not necessarily make you look better if over 60

I've just cut portion sizes and started to eat our main meal midday, and cut evening carbs, but continued to eat a bit of everything, just less, no diet, no diet food. Another 10 kg to bring me into the normal BMI range (having started as morbidly obese, to obese, to overweight (where I am now). Each to their own.

He looked good in the video which seems to be from 2010.

In the picture on the first post, he now looks ill.

Unless he really is ill, that's the problem with extremes.

Re: President shows off trim look after switching to vegan

I agree with Richdog.

I don't know much about vegan but the part I found through all your post put me off it as you make it sounds like a cult.

So in other words, with this thread Vegan_Chef is effectively promoting eating a vegetarian diet mixed with... meat. Awesome.
