80 years young, Michael Dorfman became plant based in 2008. Born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1942, Michael Dorfman has been residing in Mexico for more than 40 years, including the last 6 in San Miguel de Allende. Because of his growing interest in Eastern philosophy, he decided to become a vegetarian in 1976. For health reasons, in 2008, he chose to make the change to a Whole Food Plant Based diet. What he has learned from his experiences and in-depth research on nutrition and specific lifestyle changes during these past 14 years has significantly impacted his life and led to his decision to not only strive to achieve optimal health for himself but to support others with the same goals in mind. In 2019, he published his first book on Amazon, “The Thriving Vegan – How to Discover the Foods your Body Loves.” That same year, he became certified in Plant-Based Nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies through eCornell University. He recently completed a 46-page eBook, “The Nutrition, Lifestyle and Covid Connection,” which he offers free to this podcast audience.
