VEGAN: Bill clinton advocates it and he has probably some of the best dr's. You can certainly loss a lot of weight with that diet. Drop alot in your cholesterol. It is probably one of the most difficult diets to follow--especially if your travelling or eating out. I wouldn't feel to guilty if i fell off it once in a while.
