    My family history is full of heart problems and death due to heart disease, so I gave it a try (the SCIENTIFIC evidence in the books is very powerful),
    As I said it is a life style change, and I like it.

    What they suggest worked for me, in the first 6 month I went down from 325 to 265 lbs.

    If any of you have cholesterol and/or heart problems I highly recommend you to read the books above.
    Then you can decide if its something you want to give it a try or not..
    Campbell's interpretation of the China study data is questionable:

    That is Why I suggest to read the books and see if its for you or not...

    I find evidence in both books very strong though..

    In any case, here in the US eliminating the sugar and fat intake will eliminate almost all the junk food, limiting meat intake is harder (I still enjoy my Thanks Giving Turkey) however not impossible and works for me.
