I have been following a plant based whole foods diet since reading “The China Study” in 2009. I believe in the power of plant based nutrition to prevent and reverse heart disease and most other chronic diseases, and I discuss this option with many of my patients. I am thrilled when patients choose to improve their diet. It is the most rewarding part of my practice. However, I am still a hospital-employed, board-certified, primary care internal medicine physician. I try to do it all!
