I notice that some of the hits on my blog are from sites with which I am unfamiliar. One of them is the CHIPS site, and I checked it out. http://www.coschip.com/ Great site, and they reference an upcoming visit by Dr. Hans Diehl. Dr. Diehl was one of the speakers on the recent TV taping, and I had the privilege of watching his interview. He was very impressive, and I hope that everybody will get a chance to see his interview. He is yet another doctor who has courage and ethics to be treating people with what works. His specialty is near and dear to my heart - coronary artery disease.
The only thing that I notice is that his claims seem to be very modest in comparison with what I have achieved. My own cholesterol has gone from 292 to 139 unmedicated, and my bad LDL cholesterol has gone from 212 to 39 unmedicated. Both of these changes blew my own physician away. He has never seen such drops, even with medication. I am not sure of the details of Dr. Diehl's program, but it has to be doing people good, and he has to be on the right track for Dr. McDougall to be interviewing him on his TV show.
It just seems to me that a critical mass has been achieved with respect to lifestyle medicine. What Dr. McDougall has been saying for so many years and is starting to echo through concerned and caring people. We are seeing very public people, like Bill Clinton, becoming aware of the power of lifestyle medicine. We are seeing my generation approach the age where a lifetime of dietary error is becoming apparent. My generation was always one to question authority, and this can work in our favor.
Janice below provided a link to some of the CHIPs recipes if anybody wants to view them. They are here: http://blogs.e-rockford.com/thehword/category/chip-recipes/
The recipes do contain oil, which is not allowed in the recommendations of Drs. McDougall and Esselstyn. I would like to learn more about CHIPs and the results that they are achieving and how those compare to what is seen with Drs. E and M.
