A vegan lifestyle can improve your health tremendously and save the environment. It's no secret most Doctors want you to limit your meat intake. Infact, when I had stage 4, five of five of my doctors didn't want me eating any meat at all. In fact, colon cancer is often caused by eating meat. I ate only fish, and I got colon cancer.

Vegan Food List (non starchy):
Most doctors, I have spoke with, one at Harvard, mentioned to limit starchy vegetables, like corn and potatoes, etc.
Vegetables (as much as you want within reason):
Spinach (cooked) (less than 7 pounds a day)
Dandelion greens (they are bitter)
Swiss Chard (less than 7 pounds a day)
Dill (German cuisine)
Fennel : is a key ingredient in some Italian and German salads, often tossed with chicory and avocado.
Parsley (Italian cuisine)
Black Lentils (Lowest carbs of all lentils)
Beans (if you can tolerate the gas)
Sugars include pasta and breads (all types). When you have cancer or want to prevent cancer, it's ideal to avoid sugar in any form. Whether it's fruit, honey, bread, etc.
Most tofu has more protein than red meat per gram. Protein causes your cells to mutate and your DNA to shorten. Too much protein, especially meat, causes aging, cancer, and illness.
What's my ideal diet?
Consider eating vegetables your ancestors ate. For example, if your DNA is primarily German, you want to have cabbage, green onions, sauerkraut, and dill. Dr. Valter Lango who specializes in Longevity and health at USC Longevity Institute recommends to eat closely what your ancestors ate.
The newest research from USC and Harvard both support limiting your protein (all sources) and sugar. A low protein diet has shown to reduce cancer. A high protein diet has a mortality rate 4 times more than the low protein diet. Don't be fooled by all the marketing in your local grocery store. The leading studies and scientist in recent years have mounting evidence to the contrary.
