Having been a type 1 diabetic for the last 44 years, Sanjay Gupta's special last summer, called "The Last Heart Attack", got my attention. So I got the book by the doctor featured there, Dr. Calwell Esselstyn, author of "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease", and I've been trying to follow his dietary program ever since, about six months now. Totally vegan, plus no added oils or refined grains. That means most of the "products" in the grocery stores are now off limits. So I'm relearning to cook, and enjoying myself, as well as feeling better too. Now looking for more resources, restaurants, etc, that can fit into this diet, as well as people also into similar interests. Found the group via random google search.
Hi. My name is Peter. I'm a 61 year old, single (except for six cats), artist and jeweler, living in West Seattle not far from Westwood village. I've been in Seattle for about 15 years now.
Fun seeming group with a wide variety of interesting people.
