Hay Yall

#1 Postby gafool25 » Thu Jun 13, 2013 8:36 am

Names John, i got started by listening to a local radio host Dr Joe Espisito in marietta ga, those that live in atlanta are familiar . then i watched forks over knives, fat sick and nearly dead, hungry for a change, engine 2 diet, then i got the books by rip esselstyn, and from then im now a vegetarian! im a firefighter and do not want to be a statistic ! not dying by fire by heart disease. so ive made the switch, eating a plant storong diet and cut outs the meats and dairy and ive felt so awesome! of course ive got the friends and a few family members that just cant give up the meat but i say well its your health im just trying to kick some knowledge your way, i can bring you to the well but its up to you to drink it! lol any way glad to be here and hope to meet some local fellow vegetarians.

John - nice to meet another GA local! I live in Duluth and own a business in Norcross. Congrats on making the switch to a plant-based nutrition plan, I've enjoyed the same documentaries you mentioned. Welcome!
