Dear Dr. Linda, Your Blog posts are excellent.....what I've read so far......and although I see the wisdom in the vegan plant based diet.......i am totally frustrated, because I have seen little weight loss....although inflammation was better. I am postmenopausal and have great resistance to losing the pounds I have packed on in the last 5+ years. I have tried Forks Over Knives, McDougall's The Starch Diet....even attended his program and TrueNorth in Santa Rosa last year.....also attended a week long Reunion with Dr. Fuhrman 3 years ago. I can't lose weight following these programs, so end up discouraged and go back to something less than perfect. I started BHRT 6 weeks ago and Running 3 times a week plus walking on off days around the same time. (although, I have always walked or pilates, etc) I eat fairly healthy but not Vegan. Mostly eggs and clean proteins along with the veggies......I am JUST now beginning to see the tape measure move...... My question is WHY do I have such poor results when I eat totally Vegan??? Yet, now beginning to see positive results with Dr. Sara Gottfried's Hormone Reset Diet??? (which allows clean proteins and lots of veggies) I truly want to be a believer for the FOK, McDougall, Fuhrman, Carney, Camps but have seen no results as promised. And yes, of course, if I ate nothing all day but vegetables I would find results, but that is miserable and makes it impossible to eat at anyone's house or out EVER. What gives? Hormnones? What? Why?Post is under moderationStream item published successfully. Item will now be visible on your stream.
