Patricia Herrera's Vegan Weight Loss Success Story

Learn more about switching to a vegan diet.

Before eating a vegan diet, California schoolteacher Patricia Herrera was tired all the time. Doctors prescribed her medications to treat her diabetes, but she discovered that going vegan could solve the same problems as the medications. After going vegan, Patricia lost weight, got control of her blood sugar, and lowered her cholesterol.

This Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's reverse diabetes success story is based on Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes that is shown to be three times more effective than the American Diabetes Association dietary guidelines at controlling blood sugar.

My experience is similar. A family practice doctor told me that I could not rely on diet alone to bring blood pressure and cholesterol levels down. Even now when she sees my numbers (completely in range!)she is a skeptic and says that I should be taking the meds.
