Plant-based Study starts in 10 days! Preparations are underway…

Posted by Jenn on January 5, 2011


Baselines are being determined (lipid profiles, CBC, Blood Chemistry,carotid ultrasounds, BMI) this week and the beginning of next with our kick off meeting happening at the end of next.  The first official day of the study is Saturday, January 15th.  I am posting all of our participants Bios and baseline measurements on the “Plant-based Health Study” page.  Each participant will also have their own page in which they will blog about their transition to a plant-based diet, their adjustment to it and their progression from day 1 through Day 60 (the study’s endpoint).  A mid-point assessment will be made at day  30 and a final at day 60.   The same parameters will be measured each time. Have Questions? Want to know more? Just ask us!
