I'm still here!!! : ) Using sunflower and sometimes safflower oil. I have to admit that I fell off for a bit as I was waking up and having to head out the door ASAP to get to work. I've learned a BUNCH about what OP does and does not do for me i.e. I can have a couple of glasses of juice (I try to only eat one meal a day) and still get good pulls. And personally, even if it helps or not, there are times I just feel like pulling. I just plain enjoy it. Great to see the board going strong, and I'll check in more often.
