We compared the effects of one of four diets (plant based - vegan, Mediterranean, DASH and Paleo) in a group of older non-diabetic adults with cardiovascular risk factors attending a cardiology clinic in suburban Virginia. Subjects were followed weekly for 60 days, evaluating weight, blood pressure (BP), and markers of glucose and lipid control. All parameters were re-evaluated at a follow up visit after 6 months. Subjects lost weight and lowered their BP and insulin resistance with all diets, both at 60 days and 6 months. Lipid levels and fasting glucose changes were variable.
