Bill Clinton told Wolf Blitzer last night that he "essentially lives on a plant-based diet." The diet change was sparked by his bypass surgery, and the results have been amazing; Bill has lost 24 pounds and says he's back to his high school weight. (He wanted to lose weight for Chelsea's wedding, so he figured he'd give the diet a shot.)
He mentions all the reading and research he's done, including Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn (Rip's dad), Dean Ornish, Colin Campbell, and says:
"I did all this research, and I saw that 82 percent of the people since 1986 who have gone on a plant-based, no dairy, no meat of any kind, no chicken, no turkey?I eat very little fish, once in a while I'll have a little fish?If you can do it, 82 percent of people have begun to heal themselves."
