    HI All, I'm only two months into the whole foods plant based lifestyle so I thought i'd reach out to some like minded folks and make some friends!

    since I started I've lost around seventeen pounds and down two pant sizes. I'm not sure I can pin it down to just one thing because as you know, detoxing off all the nasty hazardous things like meat, eggs, dairy, sugar, salt, oil, flour etc. it's easy to drop pounds. But one thing that stands out for me is how I feel after enjoying VFB (Veggies for breakfast) vs eating oatmeal with fruit... lately i'm eating the later as a second breakfast, just a much smaller portion.

    Obviously I'm new to this so if anyone has any pointers, or food ideas, I"m all ears! I spend way too much time looking for recipes, shopping and then cooking!

      Welcome to the wonderful world of whole food plant based eating. It's been an amazing journey for me as it is for all who take up this way of living.

      Please consider joining ATX Alive if you're on Facebook. This is a dynamic group of plant eaters who get together regularly. It's become an important part of my tribe and it's always uplifting to be around others who are like minded.

    • First, Lori WELL DONE! Great job on the weight loss and pant size. I remember how excited it was for me to come down from 48 inch waist to my nowFirst, Lori WELL DONE! Great job on the weight loss and pant size. I remember how excited it was for me to come down from 48 inch waist to my now 38 inches. This was a major achievement for me and the prize was I can now get a pair or Versace jeans to fit So it is important to give yourself rewards as your journey continues. this becomes even more important as you trim down as the weight loss slows. This is a good thing as you body is homing in on you ideal weight based on you energy consumption. It is my understanding that psychologist's say it takes three-years of performing a routine to have it become natural. We all need help so it is great to surround yourself with supports - people that are on the same journey. I am two months in to a reboot of my diet also. I "fell off the wagon" last May when my doctor at the time would not support my lifestyle change. On finding Dr. Carney I am now back in earnest. So congrats again.  More ...

    Hello everyone. So Dr. Carney's Starch Smartest system says to eat veggies for breakfast. What do you have for quick breakfast? Also, it says NO vinegar, which I use Balsamic vinegar for salad dressing... what do you use for salad dressing?

    thanks!

    It's good to see national news is starting to figure it out. Saw this on CNN yesterday:

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/31/health/heart-disease-statistics-report/index.html

    I like Dr. Esselstyn's exhaustive list of veggies to eat.

    Enjoy,

    Ken

No mention that it is what you eat thatMy takeaway from this article is that obesity, smoking and socioeconomic issues is causing the the problem. No mention that it is what you eat that is the issue. No one in the mainstream media is saying it's all the meat and dairy you eat! I expect this is the pharma industry wanting a new revenue stream by getting everyone on heart pills.  More ...

    Found this story on CNN:https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/30/health/rising-drug-costs/index.html

    This story is so sad on so many levels - even beyond the insulin price gouging subject of the article.

    I find it sad that his control is so poor that he needs an alarm to alert him of hypoglycemia (low blood-sugar). But I'm sure he is not alone. This style of rote after-the-fact control and hope for the best is what is traditional, as opposed to a personal before-the-fact totally in control method geared to synchronize with life's variables. Fancy devices should not be necessary.

    I've promised a book on that method (The SPP method) and I'm still working on it. I don't want to leave anything out, so it's taking much longer than I imagined...

    Thanks,

    Ken
