Purely motivated by weight loss, the two went plant-based after discovering "The Starch Solution" by Dr. McDougall and haven't looked back! Not only have they lost a combined 80lbs (WOW!), they also lowered their cholesterol, and Fran is now off half of his blood pressure and heart medications.

Meet our Herbie of the Week: Peggy! Since adopting a plant-based diet Peggy lost 45 pounds (in four months!), lowered her blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides, and most importantly: she no longer has chronic constipation -- a problem she'd suffered for years.
