Well this January one resolution I had- to eat more veggies.I decided that would be healthier and smarter.For me this kinda thing always leads me to the library.So I took out some fabulous books.I wanted to research the best diet for your heart.As heart attacks run in my family, my Grandpa at 50 and my mom at 49.This is always a worry in my head and now it's time to do something.So vegetarian/vegan was what all the books told me.I did know this but,was never ready to give up meat and cheese.No way!But, a funny thing happened along with my research..I got educated.
I just happened upon Alicia Silverstone's The Kind Diet.Which I read in one day.I found the information informative and very well researched.The thing is I knew the information before but,I never really thought about it.I think you can push anything aside if you don't really want to look at something.This book just clicked for me and sent me looking for more information.
A plant based diet can do so much for us reverse heart disease(Dr Dean Ornish),gentle and continuing weight loss,helps people with diabetes lower their blood sugars,helps re balance hormones,helps with headaches and joint pain.I think it is a wise way to look at food. It makes you think about foods that will nourish your body
So I have had no red meat and very limited dairy since January 12th.Then February 14th I've had no red meat,chicken,turkey,3 eggs and very limited dairy(no cheese,no milk and no ice cream).I have lost 7 pounds and 10 inches so far.I feel fantastic and have not missed a thing.
