A couple of things came to mind when I read your post. First tho-- thanks for the encouragement and support--it is doable, right?! Your husband is gonna be so surprised. not only will u weigh less, u'll glow more! Kay, now down to biz...I became a vegetarian at 14, stayed that way til I was 25 and then, pregnant, caved into venison...go figure...anyway, I've been doing a LOT of reading and know from experience that some vegetarian ways simply don't support weight loss. I like most of America had great success on Atkins, but know that meat is something our bodies are not meant to absorb. Still, the tendency to rely on grains, potatoes (even sweet/yams) and breads (even multigrain and especially wheat) is what sabotages weight loss. I know u cld read a million books and get as many opinions but Daniel P. Ried's The Tao of Health, Sex and Longevity has real good stuff in it. Speaks of grain free living (one of the prinicpals of living food/raw diet), but still good to keep in mind even if u only reduce the rice, wheat,starch in your cooked veg. life. Also, as a recovering chocaholic and I do mean ADDICTED to chocolate (my daughter once said "mommy i think u love chocolate more than me!') one of the raw cookbooks i'm reading suggests stuffing a date with an almond to curb chocolate cravings. sounds yummy. And finally the raw websites i've been scouring all have "live" brownies--cocoa and carob. rawfood.com is one. I'm gonna give them a try. I've been doing weight training for the first time in my life and feel confident that I can sustain the reduction benefits of MC...u can too. Sorry to go on and on...
