“Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease” by Caldwell Esselstyn:
Bananiac asks Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, author of “Prevent & Reverse Heart Disease” what his thoughts are of raw fruit and vegetable diets in terms of treatment of heart disease.
Dr. Esselstyn makes it clear that although many diets seem to be getting popular in our society, many of them lack the peer-reviewed published scientific evidence to back up their claims. His thoughts on raw food diets is that they lack in high calorically dense foods such as potatoes and grains, which make it harder to get enough calories on raw food diets. This as a result makes a lot of people eat high fat diets because they do not eat enough calories from fruit, which are low in fat. Eating a high fat diet will NOT treat heart disease and that is Dr. Esselstyn’s biggest concern with raw food diets (and many other diets, as well).
