  • Good topic title, Mihani. I'm ready for April. I still struggle to squeeze in exercise. Best if it doesn't seem like exercise; tricks me into thinking it's fun instead. :-) Whats_her_name, bread and starches like rice and potatoes are not conducive to weight loss for me. I limit grains to a cup or less a day, and many days…
  • I haven't found one yet, either. I did find a couple of Type II diabetes groups. I'm still searching.
  • Same here. One glass of wine maybe 3 times a week does not affect me. More than that and my eating gets out of control, which most definitely affects me.
  • liar, sorry to hear you were sick. Hopefully you bounced back relatively quickly. I can't remember the last time I got sick, even with grandkids around. Children are the germiest beings. And yes, my really big salads, or anything else eaten in large quantities late at night, do keep me up. I need to eat big earlier in the…
  • I agree that Healthy Herbivore has some nice recipes, as does Helyn's Healthy Kitchen. I've noticed from other friends who have given ETL a try, they really don't try very long or with the requisite commitment. Dr F is right; if you're just going to try, don't bother. You've already failed. What's true in life is certainly…
  • ^^This^^ A good website resource for plant-based eating is Forks Over Knives.

  • I'm feeling downright chipper today. I had to go to DMV and there was only 2 people ahead of me in line. That doesn't happen often! I came home with groceries and made Cauliflower Stuffed Bell Peppers. Ingredients: steamed chopped cauliflower, mushrooms, onions, chopped yellow squash, garlic, chopped onion, a tbsp…
  • Boy, reading about all this exercise makes me feel like a slug! I ate a huge salad kinda late tonight so I expect it will be a toss-and-turn night. I got a recall to come back for another mammogram so today I went again. After another scan and two ultra-sounds, I was cleared to go home. Yay! That was a little…
  • Me, too! And I've kept it off for over 2 years. That's the real success.
  • ^^ This! ^^ It's very interesting to read how much big-ag lobbying influences government dietary recommendations. I've been almost vegetarian (I still do fish now and then) for over 20 years and, eating lots and lots of vegetables/beans, I get plenty of protein. Even now, after 3 years of no diary and very little grains, I…
  • Love that chart, ignatca! We all forget that vegetables contain protein. Eat as much and as big a variety of vegetables as possible. It's all low calorie and packed with nutrition (we all need more than just protein in our diets). Frankly, most of us (who aren't world class athletes) don't need as much protein as we've…
  • My family LOVES this Cumin and Lime Roasted Sweet Potatoes recipe: http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipe/cumin-and-lime-roasted-sweet-potatoes/ I leave the skins on for the crunchiness. A real comfort food!
  • Same for me. Sugary stuff is definitely a trigger for me. I find that I don't binge nearly as much if I make sure to feed myself really nutritious foods most of the time. If my body is getting plenty of good nutrition, it does blunt the urge to over-eat. I also employ a mental trick I learned in AA. I tell myself that in 1…
  • Interesting article on the sugar lobbyists and US diet guidelines: http://www.psmag.com/politics-and-law/the-not-so-sweet-side-to-the-sugar-industry?utm_source=digg&utm_medium=email
  • I have been following this on Dr F's website. It's been very interesting to read the participant's journals and read what they have been experiencing while eating ETL.

  • OK now I have caught up with everyone. Boy, I feel like a slug hearing about T25 and zombie runs and heavy lifting. I can't remember the last time I stepped inside the gym for which we pay membership fees. Hubby and I did get out for a walk on Monday, and I got a short bike ride in on Tuesday, but nothing today. For liapr…
  • I haven't had a chance to read what's been going on, but first let me share two great recipes I made for dinner tonight. Both surprisingly low calorie and downright filling as well as tasty: First there's Lemon Cauliflower Risotto from my ETL cookbook (p. 221) and second is Spicy Mumbai Potatoes from my old Art Of Tofu…
  • Very inspiring! Great job! Doesn't it feel great? (Don't worry about the excess skin yet. Time will take care of a lot of it. Give your skin time to shrink up; about 2 years or more for me -- but you are young so your skin is much more elastic than my old skin.)
  • Great article on Dr. Fuhrman here: http://www.nj.com/hunterdon-county-democrat/index.ssf/2015/02/flemington_doctor_giving_away_thousands_of_dollars.html

  • I eat fairly high-carb, too, though more low-fat, and almost zero diary. I don't really worry about carb numbers. I eat pretty much any and all leafy, green and colorful vegetables, and a variety of fruits almost every day. Personally, I track more for sodium intake for high blood pressure and I do try to keep my calories…
  • tdh1991, thanks for the two recipes. I will definitely try these. (Musical daughter? Very impressive! Does that mean you get free tickets? LOL! ) I'm planning to make Greek spinach pie again, from Helyn's Healthy Kitchen for tomorrow. We both loved that recipe. Also I want to try her Lentil Butternut Shepherd's Pie next…
  • I have a sibling who is easing into ETL like you. Carnivores have a harder time, I think, as it takes a leap of faith to let go of all the meat at first, since we have all been bombarded since childhood with the "get enough protein from meat" myth. I remind my sibling that I started ETL almost 3 years ago, and have had…
  • I haven't read EOD but I have read both ETL and Eat For Health. EFH seems more like EOD in that there is a wider range of food choices and generally less restrictive. I personally follow ETL, though not necessarily the ETL 6-week plan, which is for aggressive (but healhty) weight loss. It sounds as if you would do well…
  • Great article. Wish I'd seen it sooner. I'm sending this to some family who simply do not believe that what they eat affects how they feel. Not that they will change their minds. I am always amazed at how closely-held beliefs about food can be such challenging topics.
  • How did you like them? I still have not made my own burgers and I have never seen these in stores around here. We buy Morningstar Farms California burgers (hubby's favorite) and I like the chickpea version. But they're so salty that I can't have them very often. Which is why I want to make my own. I will keep an eye out…
  • Great article! I'm keeping a copy of this one. I'm sticking with Dr. Fuhrman's writings about protein. I don't need as much as is commonly believed; I can get plenty eating plant-based; plant-based protein doesn't cause calcium loss like animal protein... and the clincher for me: vegetarians and those who eat 10% or less…
