(NaturalNews) Former U.S. President Bill Clinton in on board with the holistic health advice we've been promoting at NaturalNews, it seems. He's adopted one of our top-recommended smoothie recipes to lose weight and increase health and vitality. In a televised interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Clinton was asked, "How did you lose so much weight? What kind of diet are you on?"

Looking considerably thinner than during his days as a McDonald's hamburger-eating President, his reply was "I went on essentially a plant-based diet. I live on beans, legumes, vegetables, fruits... I drink a protein supplement every morning, no dairy, I drink almond milk mixed in with fruit, and a protein powder."

"It changed my whole metabolism," Clinton says. "And I lost 24 pounds. And I got back to basically what I weighed in high school."

Here's the rest of what he says in this short video interview, available on CNN.com at: http://edition.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/2010...

"I did it because after I had this stent put in, I realized that even though it happens quite often that after bypass surgery you lose the veins because they're thinner and weaker than arteries, the truth is that it clogged up, which means that the cholesterol was still causing buildup in my vein that was part of my bypass.

I didn't want it to happen again. So I did all this research and it says that 82% of the people since 1986 who have gone on a plant-based, no dairy, no meat of any kind -- I eat very little fish -- 82% of the people who have done that have begun to heal themselves. Their arterial blockage cleans up, the calcium deposit around their heart breaks up.

This movement has been led by Doctor Caldwell B. Esselstyn at the Cleveland, Dean Ornish out in California, the doctors Campbell, father and son who wrote The China Study, and a handful of others. But we now have 25 years of evidence. So I thought... I'll become part of this experiment. I'll see if I can become one of those who can have a self-clearing mechanism."


Dr Esselstyn is, of course, the very same doctor who has been a guest on the NaturalNews Talk Hour (http://www.naturalnews.com/027472_Dr_Caldwel...) and whose website www.HeartAttackProof.com helps people teach themselves how to reverse heart disease using a plant-based diet.

Bill Clinton has apparently made a courageous decision to pursue a plant-based diet and thereby save his own life. Notably, such a move would have been impossible during his presidency due to a strong political backlash from the dairy and meat industries who continue to push their disease-promoting foods on the population.

Kudos to Clinton for embracing a lifesaving diet that will undoubtedly help him live longer and healthier. That he took on this diet is also a powerful demonstration of how the plant-based diet is going mainstream.

I'm largely a follower of a plant-based diet, of course. But I add in lots of potent superfoods in my smoothies, including things like powdered Chinese medicine herbs (He Shou Wu), spirulina, and Boku Superfood (www.BokuSuperfood.com).

Although I don't drink cow's milk, I am currently using Jay Robb's Whey Protein (www.JayRobb.com) with great success as part of my recent physical training regimen. Over the last four months, using Jay Robb whey protein combined with 12 - 14 hours of martial arts, weights and cardio training, I've added 9 pounds of lean body mass and dropped 10 pounds of body fat while gaining strength and endurance.

As Clinton is now discovering, the foods you eat really do make a difference in your health! That's no surprise, actually, when you think about it. Too bad no sitting President has the political willpower to say such a thing while they're in power. There are simply too many vested interests in disease and pharmaceuticals to make such a move politically viable.

Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
