I personally follow a plant based nutrition plan for myself and my family. My son has literally followed it his whole life and loves fruits and a wide assortment of veggies. I explain to my patients that I only received 1 hour of nutrition training in medical school, like most of my colleagues, and that is why they have not received consistent messages from their other physicians and families about this. I am always excited to see some of my long standing diabetic and hypertensive patients either substantially decrease their medications or CURE their disease with plant based nutrition. This has invigorated my medical career.
