I watched a documentary called "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead". It really inspired me to lose weight. I have lost over 40 pounds since I started in early Feb. I would encourage everyone who is trying to lose weight or just want to be healthy to watch the documentary.

I just finished reading "Eat to Live" and it focuses on eating mostly fruits/veggies. I haven't completely converted, but I am definitely planning on making gradual changes over the next several months. Basically, you don't have to measure, calorie count, portion control if you eat mostly fruits and veggies b/c your caloric intake will be low. I've tried just adding more salads and cutting out dairy and I have definitely not been as hungry. Amazing what veggies do for you!! I've encouraged all my family to read the book - if not for weight loss, but for the focus on disease prevention (cancer, heart disease, diabetes).

yep I barely track calories...being vegan is mostly helpful in that sense. Smile
