Idk if he still does but Mike Mahler used to use them to meditate also.
This is NOT medical advice. Talk to your doctor first.

If you have pretty good nocturnal erections can you safely say that your ED is not because of clogged arteries even though your cholesterol maybe high and heart disease runs in your family?
Dr Gould allows animal products also. He says one can be completely vegetarian but doesn't have to be.So which study/studies are we going to believe? My guess is that each person will choose to believe the study/studies that bolster what they already believe regarding the link between dietary practices and one's health. Just saying...
If you don't like a highly plant-based low fat diet a la Esselstyn or perhaps Ornish, then go with Dr. Fuhrman. Dr. Fuhrman says to displace some of the carbs in a low fat diet with nuts and seeds - not oils or other unnatural fats - because nuts and seeds have over 100+ cardiovascular studies under their belt. It's pretty friggin hard to argue with that logic!
NOTE: I would also add that incorporating the techniques of a lower fat diet a la Dr. Gould completely defuses any argument against low fat diets since Dr. Gould insists upon a "low carb low fat" diet. Drs. Gould and Fuhrman shatter all the stereotypes about plant-based and low fat diets, respectively.
How do we know Dr. Gould is right? Simple: his dietary technique completely shifts lipids away from the standard pattern B lipid profile and also deflates the standard post meal lipid gradient that hammers our arteries. He reverses plaque in 90% of his patients and his patients are the toughest cases out there.
Likewise, how do we know Fuhrman is right? Well, the longest lived and healthiest peoples on the planet are all lower fat but not super low fat. The Tarahumara are quite low fat actually, but the other very long lived cultures are in the 20-30% range and highly plant-based which matches my understanding of Fuhrman's diet perfectly.
Both the diets of Dr. Gould and Fuhrman and non-extreme and would be enjoyed by almost any guy on here. There is simple no excuse not to become familiar with their books in my opinion.
And you know what I am going to add: the great majority of guys that eat a lot of animal products can't afford the higher quality range fed meats. They end up eating factory farm crap that is corn fed, hormone/antibiotic injected and incredibly high in saturated fat compared to their more naturally raised counterparts. Any argument that this is healthy eating is weak at test
I have basically modified my diet by eliminating quinoa and adding in tree nuts and peanut butter (organic with no extra ingredients). Interestingly enough, there was little change in my lipids per this:
Total Cholesterol: 142
LDL-C (Calc): 94
For those who don't know, I ate low fat for years but this time tried a more Fuhrman-like diet. My HDL improved a bit but LDL went up a bit too. (Yes, I know it's calculated and that LDL-P are more Lpa are better numbers.)
Anyway, I enjoy nuts tremendously, so this is encouraging. Will continue and try to pull LDL-P on this and see what happens.
Guys I went out and replaced my dongle for the fit bit. And to be honest I'm glad I did even though it was a bit lazy . The reason is that the app is just awesome. At least now my iPhone thinks it very easily and quickly to the app. As I mentioned in another thread I am running 2.6 miles per day and trying to get up to 15,000 steps. I've also been losing a little weight and I think this is really going to help me go the last yardWhich fit bit did you get?
