I agree with Dr. Carney's suggestion and my first meal of the day is my biggest and then I taper from there to my smallest meal. I try to finish eating by 4 p.m. but some days it's 6 p.m. I also eat greens with my breakfast meal. That really helps me control cravings for unhealthy foods during the day. It's like magic. :-)  More ...

    I recently heard a lecture by Dr. Esselstyn on reversing heart disease. One of the food recommendation he made was to avoid sugar. I don't use table sugar or brown sugar anymore. I try to use whole fruit for sweeteners. But I am interested in having more info about this sugar link. Can you point me to books and/or articles that address this? I would appreciate it so much.

    I saw your post about starting some groups here. Wondering if a Leaky Gut or Allergies group would be helpful.

    I run a whole plant-based cooking club that teaches people how to "love food that loves them back"--how to eat more vegetables, fruit, whole grains and beans, with no added refined oils or animal products. It has been an incredible journey, sharing what I have been learning and how it is changing my own health for the better. We also have a Facebook Page (Flint New Start Cooking Club) and a website--newstarthealthbites.com 

    But I want to be able to reach more people and be a more effective health educator. So today, I have begun the plant nutrition course offered by T. Colin Campbell and his team. It has been an awesome day studying the first module of this course and I look forward to how this is going to expand my opportunities to help more people discover the benefits of a whole plant based lifestyle.

    I am so happy that my gut is healing! My skin rash has gone down considerably this past month. I used to have flare ups from tomatoes. But recently, I made a new dish for my cooking club. It has our New Start ketchup recipe in it. I tried it and no flareups. The past 2 weeks, I've had some fresh tomato (once a week) and no flareups there either! So excited how going oil free and eating more greens and other anti-inflammatory plant foods has been helping! And oh yes--I've dropped a dress size!! 

    Thank you so much!! I love this new way of life!

    I would like to stop using added salt to my meals. I read how it may inhibit healing from inflammation and want to include this step in my healing process. But my husband and son doesn't think it's safe to do this. They are worried about a deficiency problem happening. We live in Michigan. Can you help?

    I was reading the recently posted article on Leaky Gut. The article referenced Dr. Joel Fuhrman and his success in helping patients with autoimmune diseases. I just finished reading a position paper by him in which he includes fish oil supplementation for EPA and DHA fatty acids.

    What are your thoughts on this? I do not feel right about taking fish oil for therapy. Is there another plant-based source that would suffice?

  • And how much lycopene is needed to have this protective effect?
    I've seen statistics that suggest that the average American eats between 22-24 pounds of tomatoes every year.
