Hi, I’m a newbie to this website and group, joining today after watching Dr Carney on Chef AJ’s ‘The Truth About Weight Loss Summit’.
It wasn’t the first time I heard Dr Carney talk about caffeine, nuts and alcohol. I watched last year’s summit, gave up coffee for a few weeks before caving in to my addiction. However, several months later I suffered a dreadful reaction to coffee, twice! It felt like I was having a heart attack but it wasn’t anything to do with my heart. I haven’t touched coffee since, I’m completely over my addiction and will never drink coffee again. The pain and fear is too much.
I’ve been WFPB for 7 years after watching FOK but I’ve never been completely compliant, succumbing to high fat vegan foods too often. Initially losing just over 20kg I’ve been struggling to lose the last 8-10kg for years. I’m 67 years old next month, on no medications and in good health. However, I know this can’t be right and can’t last as the visceral fat I carry is damaging.
5 Weeks ago I fell down some steps, broke my leg and tore both a lateral ligament and my miniscus so I’m still in recovery. My biggest fear is that I will gain weight during my convalescence so I started following Chef AJ and Plantiful Kiki and its been going well. I’m determined to not get on any scales for 12 weeks because I’m a ‘scales junkie’.
I’m trying to focus on improving my health rather than just weight loss as I know that will happen naturally. I want to eat WFPBNO for the rest of my life and never diet again.
Sorry for the long post. I guess I’m using this opportunity to confess haha.
