Nutrition Support Group

To enhance one's diet and lifestyle by taking the vegan approach.

The Nutrition Support Group is a group endorsed by Dr. Mark Sklar in order to better one's health and lifestyle by taking the Vegan approach. Dr Mark Sklar, being a vegetarian for more than 20 years himself, has been endorsing this lifestyle as he and his family are all vegetarians and is a proud member of PETA. Many studies have proven that maintaining a vegan/vegetarian diet leads to significant weight loss and improved control of diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol levels. This results in having  more energy to live everyday to the fullest. Dr. Sklar wants his patients to be in the best shape and condition possible, which is why he strongly endorses and supports this nutrition group and a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. "Being a vegetarian for 26 years has been a great influence on my life as I haven't felt healthier, livelier or happier since I started maintaining this diet.
