Breaking: The Results Are IN

In my fun doctor's office gown.

Guys. As you may recall, one of the reasons I started the raw/v was that I had high cholesterol. Before I started the raw/v a little over three months ago, my cholesterol was 241. I had it tested a week ago and got the results back today. My current cholesterol is 181. That's right. I brought it down 60 points in three months. High five.

I was a little low on vitamin D and B12. I got an Rx for the D and a shot in the behind of B12.

When I told the doctor about my new way of eating, I was surprised that his first question was not about where did I get my protein  - but rather - how much weight did you lose? (My doc, Dr. H, is the doctor on The Biggest Loser, so of course that was his first question.) My answer: 25 pounds so far. And then his second question was, how am I getting my protein. (Apparently this question in response to hearing that someone is eating raw/vegan is encoded in all human DNA.) I told him I'm getting it from eating a big-ass ton of vegetables. He was satisfied with that. I am too. 

So no statins for me. Just a helluva lot of kale.
