Reversing Crohn’s disease

I saw this post from Melanie yesterday, in response to an old blog of mine. I thought it warranted front-and-center attention. It’s especially on my mind after a convo after my Lehi, UT class last night with a mother of a young (20-ish) Crohn’s patient who eats no fiber. That’s the problem with Crohn’s patients, […]

Vegetarian athletes

I don’t think anyone knows exactly what seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong’s diet is.   But if you read his story written by his nutrition coach, you know a couple of things.   First, he eats 70 percent carbs, 15 percent protein, and 15 percent fat.   You’d have a very hard time […]

The 247 lb. vegan

Tony Gonzalez of the Kansas City Chiefs is the NFL’s highest-paid tight end. He’s 6’5″ and weighs 247 lbs. In the off season last year, he went vegan after a health scare (Bell’s Palsy).
