You'd think that being a registered nurse I would know a lot about nutrition. Wrong! In nursing school we learned specialized diets for patients who suffer diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and digestive disorders like chrones. In highschool, I remember learning the food pyramid and tried follow that. Let me tell ya, if I knew then what I know now, I would have never gotten obese. Even in highschool I had to watch what I eat and run daily just to keep from gaining weight. As I got older, it got harder, and running couldn't keep from gaining weight despite my efforts to control my diet as well. I've tried many diets and either they didn't work, didn't have lasting results, or I couldn't stick with them because they were too complicated or restrictive. Besides that, all the research journals and weight loss articles I read seem to contradict eachother so much, I didn't know what or how to eat!

Working Out
Is anyone exercising while following this diet? I found out I wasn't doing nearly as much cardio as I should have. Now I'm doing at least 6 hours of cardio a week and it's made a lot of difference. Not only am I losing weight and slandering down, but my skin has cleared up to the point that others have noticed. It's like an additional detox! Plus my endurance has improved.

anybody following the 6 week plan?
I've seen what you're talking about, which is one of the reasons I started my own diet "Nutritarian," which follows the same principles from the Eat to Live diet. You are welcome to join our members if you'd like, otherwise I've added you as a buddy so we can lend eachother support.

Good Fats Vers Bad Fats
plant also raise your HDL, the good cholestoerol, which counters the LDL (bad cholesterol).

And the people above are right about artificial fats which are transfats such as vegetable and corn oils. Stay away from anything that has hydrogenated, or partially hydrogenated on it's ingredients list. According to Dr. Fuhrman it is best to not consume extracted oils at all. In a nut shell, if your looking for healthy fat, eat it straight from the plant source. I've learned to make salad dressings with real nuts and olives rather than oils.

Good Fats Vers Bad Fats
Animal fats, including dairy, are bad fats. They're saturated, they raise your cholesterol, and they're loaded with calories without beneficial nutrients. If you must have cheese, limit it, I've learned that I'm better off without it. Plant fats are good fats, nuts, seeds, olives, avocados... they're unsaturated, therefore they lower your LDL's (the bad cholesterol) and they provide more energy and nutrients for the amount of calories they contain. However, if you're trying to lose weight, you should limit the fat in your diet altogether because you're body will use it's stored fat when it needs it.
