Search the internet and you will find lots of articles to support your bad eating behavior. "People want to hear good news about their bad choices".
John McDougall, M.D..
"When I was 88 years old, I gave up meat entirely and switched to a plant foods diet following a slight stroke. During the following months, I not only lost 50 pounds, but gained strength in my legs and picked up stamina. Now, at age 93, I’m on the same plant-based diet, and I still don’t eat any meat or dairy products. I either swim, walk, or paddle a canoe daily and I feel the best I've felt since my heart problems began.”
Benjamin Spock, Pediatrician and Author, Dr. Spock (1903-1998)
“Some people think the “plant-based, whole foods diet” is extreme. Half a million people a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn onto their coronary artery. Some people would call that extreme.”
Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, Author Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease
"Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution of a vegetarian diet."
Albert Einstein, Theoretical Physicist
At first the changes you are about to make may seem overwhelming. After all, you are about to abandon the eating habits of a lifetime...before you know it healthy foods will be not what you ought to but what you want to eat.

"If you do what I ask, your disease is history. Rather than detour around it, squish it with a balloon or brace it open with a wire bracket - either of which is just a temporary angina-relieving procedure - my program can prevent disease altogether, or stop it in its tracks. All the interventional procedures carry considerable risk of morbidity, including new heart attacks, strokes, infections, and, for some, an inevitable loss of cognition. Mine carries none. And the benefits of intervention erode with the passage of time; eventually, you have to have another angioplasty, another bypass procedure, another stent. By contrast, the benefits of my program actually grow with time. The longer you follow it, the healthier you will be."
Caldwell Esselstyn, MD
“When about 16 Years of Age, I happen’d to meet with a Book, written by on Tryon, recommending a Vegetable Diet. I determined to go into it. My Brother being yet unmarried, did not keep House, but boarded himself and his Apprentices in another Family. My refusing to eat Flesh occasioned an Inconveniency, and I was frequently chide for my singularity.”
Benjamin Franklin “The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
“I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol-lowering drugs for the rest of their lives.
Dean Ornish, MD
One farmer says to me, "You cannot live on vegetable food solely, for it furnishes nothing to make the bones with;" and so he religiously devotes a part of his day to supplying himself with the raw material of bones; walking all the while he talks behind his oxen, which, with vegetable-made bones, jerk him and his lumbering plow along in spite of every obstacle.
Henry David Thoreau
The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined. If beef is your idea of "real food for real people" you'd better live real close to a real good hospital.
Neal Barnard M.D. , President Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car.
Harvey Diamond Author Eat for Life
Your choice of diet can influence your long term health prospects more than any other action you might take.
C. Everett Koop, Former Surgeon General
Remember to look forward to each meal with the possibilities and great foods available to you, not the foods you can't eat. This is a lifestyle, not a diet. Losing weight is an added benefit to a plant strong, whole food nutrition plan.

You're dealing with high fat, high protein, low carbohydrate, low fiber, and if that's the centerpiece of your diet, which for most American's it is...you're going to have a high likelihood of heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
