A former marine has revealed how he has changed his life and physique after adopting a vegan diet.
Chris Horscroft suffered with crippling arthritis pain in his knee for more than a decade, he was taking up to 30 painkillers a day, and barely sleeping because of the pain – with no respite in sight.
It wasn’t until he ditched meat and dairy that he managed to lose weight, reverse a number of immune conditions, and take his fitness to the next level.
The Starch Solution
Horscroft started his transformation when he discovered The Starch Solution, a diet plan developed by John A. McDougall, MD. The plan is a whole food, low-fat diet, based on starches.
“Once I found Dr. McDougall’s starch solution, I started to piece together that it wasn’t my knee that was the problem,” Horscroft told Plant Based News.
“It was actually my gut microbiome, I damaged my gut. Then I started to heal, and that started to sort out all of my immune diseases, like hay fever, psoriasis and also my arthritis.
