Going oil free and eating whole food plant based, following the Starch Smart way, has helped so much! I had developed allergies to citrus, spinach, tomatoes, nutritional yeast flakes, and a few other foods. But all these have disappaeared! My sensitivity to gluten is still there but it has decreased. I trust that as I lose weight and keep eating this way, I'll have total healing! More

My interest was to figure out the percentage of calories from fat in both of those seeds. Well, it ends up that Chia seeds are 53% of their calories from fat and Flax seeds are 71% of their calories from fat. Of course these are considered the most 'healthy' fats.   More ...

You may have a complicated case, but are welcome to consider that option here at this URL.
      Phone consults are conducted at 7 PM Central time on week-nights, and are called Food Coaching to distinguish them from the practice of medicine across state lines. Thus Food coaching is advice from me, a medical doctor, but are not actually me becoming your physician across state lines, as they do not involve the prescribing of medications or tests, although we certainly do discuss those (if appropriate) that you may ask your MD in your state to order for you.

    I have a dear friend suffering with polycystic kidney disease. Very poor as well. She is on dialysis 3X a week. I know that a plant based diet can improve kidney function in general, but wondering if you know if this would help this type of kidney disease. She has had very poor health and I would like to help her, if I can.

    A church member who is recovering from colorectal cancer said he plans on using black pepper in his meals. He says it helps prevent cancer. Have you heard about this connection?

    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?

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 ...
