    Is it harmful to take a pain reliever when you're dealing with the flu? I've been staying away from NSAIDs to help in healing my gut but I am dealing with the flu and wondering if it would be safe to take one? I've been eating right, getting light exercise, and taking hot baths.

    I'm glad that home canning or freezing veggies didn't have the same effect!

    I have dropped a dress/pant size since January. But I'm hoping to keep losing. I try to eat only fruits for supper and this is helping--I focus on northern grown fruits. Lately, I have a small bowl of frozen blueberries and an apple. It seems to be working.

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 know starting the day with "VFB" or Veggies For Breakfast seems to do a lot of magic for me, but I never considered a fruit based dinner; Not so sure I should as for a 2nd breakfast I'll usually have an oatmeal with fruit. Not to mention that just fruit for dinner I don't know how my body would react and cause me to want MORE sugar?

And, it iWe love our lighter fruit based evening meals. It helps us sleep better, not to be too full, and to have eaten such quickly digesting foods. And, it is sure a tasty treat each evening. The secret is to have a large breakfast and a big lunch so that when the evening meal time rolls around you are not feeling super hungry and so do not give in to the temptation to over eat.  More ...

    I'm still moving forward--haven't reached all my health goals but I'm seeing such good progress that it gives me incredible motivation. I love my new way of life! This year at campmeeting I ran into people that haven't seen me for at least 6 months. Everyone commented on how trim I look. I'm on my way!!

    Thanks Sean! I totally agree about the gun analogy. That came to my mind when they were talking with me. Unfortunately, they weren't in a listening frame of mind. I think if I suspected it ran in my family, I would be extra careful in my diet and lifestyle. But they aren't there yet. I'm praying there will be a time in the future when I can drop a few seeds to promote better health and hope as well. We don't have to be limited by our past. 

    I've experienced this in my own life. My health does not mirror my parents, grandparents or siblings because I live and eat differently. I went to a reunion this past week and found I am much leaner and with more energy than most. I am so thankful for the health I've found in eating whole plant based with no oil! Thank you for all the help and support that's been helping me on my Health Walk. My leaky gut has improved to such a point that tomatoes no longer bother me and neither does gluten! I am praising God every day!

    Cholesterol and Genes

    I have some friends that have high cholesterol. They tell me, "It runs in my family." I know that could be possible, but I also know they are eating a high fat diet. Can you suggest a kind way to encourage them to take some healthy steps forward?

    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.
