I received the results from my pre-physical labs this morning. I was pleased to see the positive changes in the lipid profile! I’m probably most proud of this progress. I know that the exercise and plant-based diet is beneficial, and I’ve lost nearly 70 lbs., but seeing the changes in the lipid profile really brings it all home. (I had to do some research on the tests and what they mean; I found the best explanation at Web MD.)
