Thank you so much for advising me. Since I didn't hear anything back, I thought perhaps other's thought me a lost cause. I have decided for the sake of easing myself into this a bit I am doing a juice fast for at least a week then starting with water. I'm headed out now to get some fresh, quality veggies and fruits so I can begin, in earnest, tomorrow. My daughter, 18, is going to do this with me. She has many of the health issues I have: glutton intolerance, pain issues and while not obese, she is a bit large for her height of almost 6' so she'd like to lose some weight and get the food addictions under control.
Thx again, P
