The dream I look to fulfill with my life’s work is the goal of the better­ment of mankind, caring for the environ­ment a...

Here’s the secret to weight loss: It’s all about “crowding out,” not cutting out. Crowd­ing out is a term used in nutritional circles to describe how to eat in a healthy way so that you never even have the chance to feel hungry. You literally crowd out the junk you think you want to eat by choosing to eat key foods throughout the day so that you’re...

When my sister and I attended HealthFest in Marshall, Texas, for the first time, I saw a presentation by Dr. Robert Ostfeld, founder and director of the Cardiac Wellness Program at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City. His expertise on the use of plant-based nutrition to treat cardiac iss...

This holiday season, many of us will venture into enemy territory.By that I mean, of course, Thanksgiving and Christmas and Hanukkah and Kwanza meals with our families. We may go in with the best of intentions. If we’re disciplined, we’ll have planned our personal menus, stocked up on whole-food, plant-based fare, practiced saying no...

I want to say up front that there are some wonderful doctors out there, many of whom have not only embraced the whole food, plant-based lifestyle but want to share their knowledge with the rest of the world. Likewise, there have been countless lives saved by doctors who are passionate about their calling, regardless of their personal lifestyles. My...

As a kidney doctor, I can’t tell you the number of times a patient has told me that they were told to avoid eating plant-based foods by somebody else. Sometimes it’s because of the phosphate content of these foods. Other times it’s because of the “sugar.” But often it’s because of the potassium. In the same breath (or should I say bite?),...

Born and raised in the South, I grew up on potluck dinners, Little Debbie snack cakes, milk and of course, sweet tea. Every family get-together was centered with a big piece of meat with cheesy sides and dairy-filled desserts. This is what I knew, so this is what I did when it was time for me to raise a family of my own. I just turned 40 years...

There is much confusion surrounding the issue of fats, particularly in the health-minded community.In the raw food realm, especially, fats are often lumped into one macro-nutrient category and regarded as either “healthy” or “unhealthy.” As with all other micro and macro nutrients, when it comes to fats, it is important that we understand how much ...

I have a lot of trouble with the concept of beauty.   As a Sensitive New Age Man, I’ve swallowed the notion that focusing on physical attractiveness is shallow and probably sexist.  As a plant-based educator, I shy away from physical attractiveness as a marketing hook because I want my clients and students to focus on their...

These pioneering doctors have quite a catalog of groundbreaking research, thought-provoking books and informative media appearances in their many combined years of medical practice. Some ...

I have struggled with food my whole life. My family of four would polish off a half gallon of ice cream in one day. My mother, a full-blooded Italian, cooked the most amazing meals, which I ate heartily. And I remember sneaking white bread and cream cheese sandwiches after my parents went to bed.When I was in the 6th grade, everyone had to be weigh...

I went vegan when I was still just a kid. I spent part of my childhood growing up in the wide-open prairie of Colorado, yet I never really fit in there. I used to climb out my bedroom window onto the roof of our house and stare out at the big sky expanding beyond the beautiful bluish, snow-capped Rocky Mountain backdrop, and I’d wonder what was bey...
