A Testimonial From PlantPure Challenge Winner Brandon Porter

"My name is Brandon Porter, I am a 41 year old male.

Most of my life, as I'm sure is the case with many of us, I knew little about nutrition and ate mostly what I wanted - with the exceptional moment or two of health consciousness that never lasted more than a day or two.
Last October, I went to the doctor to get some blood work done.  My numbers came back less than stellar.  In short - here's where I was:

-I weighed 224 pounds (I'm only 5'6")
-My blood pressure was around 140/95, give or take 
-I had heartburn every night and took an OTC medication daily
-I had pain in my upper abdomen that was never diagnosed, even after an ultrasound
-My fasting blood glucose was 101, and my A1C was 6.1

While these numbers aren't alarming for many people, I was not ok with them!  I immediately began working on my health.  Since my younger sister is a registered dietician, I called her and she suggested I count carbs and try to hit macronutrient percentages of 40% carbs, 30% each of protein and fat.  30% fat!  At the time, this sounded reasonable.  So I began counting calories and my macro percentages, and exercising.

I did lose some weight, but my blood pressure, my heartburn, and my blood sugar levels didn't really change 3 months later.  I went back for bloodwork 6 months later...same thing, no big change.

This past June I watched "Forks over Knives", and then some other documentaries, then I read "The China Study" and decided to give this a try.  Since August 1st I've been "plant pure" and here are my latest numbers:

Weight:  166, down from 224
Blood Pressure:  average of 110/65
heartburn is gone
Abdominal pain is gone
Fasting glucose:  82
A1C:  5.1 and dropping

I feel great!  Lots of energy, lots of comments from others!  I am convinced that this is the right path for human nutrition.  Thanks for reading my story - I hope it might inspire others to try.

Hope all of you are doing well. We are introducing today a new newsletter format. We hope you find this easier to navigate. With this format, you can see our content at a glance and decide what you want to read. For this week’s newsletter, I would like to draw your attention to a website launched by Dr. Jamie Koufman. She has an interesting story, which you can see under the “About Us” tab at DrCampbell4Nobel.org. Dr. Koufman launched this site to draw public attention to the idea that my father should be nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine.
