A little about me. Mother of a adult son of 25, I'm 52 years of age, currently working and living with me. He is soon about to move out. I work from home. My goal here is to support and be supported by members, and hopefully have a positive impact in my interactions. Not easily done, as I've seen that interpretations in posting are not always taken with the spirit I intended.

Battling weight all my life, but for the first time I really have faith that I will step out of my history and finally take off the fat suit! And it has all to do with joining this site.

I don't follow it, but it's a very restrictive diet. Your best bet is to get recipes books on it, and make yourself 'go to recipes'. best of luck.

CRAVINGS - How do you deal with them.
that is an excellent starting point. It will give you a fighting chance to contain the cravings. if it's from a plant, it's food, if it's made in a plant, it's not food. says Mister Pollan.
