Physician, plant-based for several years:

Dr. James Loomis
Physician, plant-based since 2011:
"I found that shopping for and preparing healthy, complete, flavorful meals was not nearly as difficult as I had anticipated. Eating out was more of a challenge, but many restaurants were more than willing to prepare a plant-based meal with advance notice. More amazing were the mental and physical changes that occurred."
Terry Shintani, MD, JD, MPH
Physician, plant-based for 30 years:
"Using a balanced, plant-based diet, I have dramatically reduced risk factors for heart disease in countless patients."
Anthony Lim, MD
Physician, plant-based since 2014:
"I was under the misconception that carbohydrates are evil, and I lumped all carbs together, which is one of the huge problems with the low-carbohydrate movement."
Psychologist, plant-based for several years:
"We love dogs and eat cows not because dogs and cows are fundamentally different--cows, like dogs, have feelings, preferences, and consciousness--but because our perception of them is different."

Dietician, plant-based for several years:
