Meat-Obsessed Cowboy Goes Vegan Thanks To The Dr. Oz Show

Dr. Oz is changing lives in a BIG way!

On a recent episode of his hit show, the good doctor challenged Rocco, a meat-obsessed cowboy, to a 28-day vegan cleanse. At only 52-years old, Rocco’s blood sugar was at 172, his waist size was 49 and he weighed 265 pounds. When all was said and done, Rocco had the heart of an 85-year-old man. Yikes!

Rocco accepted the challenge to go vegan and by the end of the 28-days had lost 6 inches from his waist, reduced his glucose by 73 pounts to only 99 and lost 30 pounds.

I must say, I always have such a reaction to these kinds of stories. When I was 16, I was a meat-obsessed, unhealthy teenager who weighed a whopping 255 pounds. 9 years of veganism and 75 pounds thinner, I truly the understand the power of a plant-based diet.

Take a second and watch the clip below. I guarantee you’ll be inspired.

    Don,
    Unless you think that the government is not corrupt and has our best interests at heart, you’d be doing yourself a favor to cut back on meat and dairy products. There’s a lot they don’t want you to know. You’re not just eating meat, you’re eating antibiotics, hormones, antibacterial spray, pink slime, meat glue…I could go on and on. These are things the government do not want you to know. If you have to eat meat despite all this (plus the stuff everyone knows about like cholesterol, etc.) eat meat from a local farmer who doesn’t do all that stuff.

Veld donates money to farm animals and also serves them

Lest we be confused that their giant V logo stands for anything other than Veld.

Trading beef for beans is not a solution, veganism is

Please do substitute beef for beans, but also have tofu instead of turkey, carrots instead of chicken, and I think you see where I’m going.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
