I’m a medical doctor and a naturopathic doctor and I live in beautiful Maui I’ve finished my 22nd health book.
I have a free newsletter and I also have an online wellness program that you can join and today in this series I’ll be talking about dieting a vegetarian diet.

Is is tempting for people when they learn that you can live 3.5 years longer and when you’re 15% leaner on a vegetarian diet.

If you’re going to try to do a strict vegan diet that doesn’t even include eggs or cheese or any dairy products a strict vegetarian diet is just fruits vegetables whole grains nuts seeds and legumes.
