Yep, I also have tried all diets. This book is more about changing ones eating habits....which seems to be helping me. Yes,it is still hard , miss my cream an cheese I actually believe I am part mouse!!!! But I also like feeling better, have not done it long enough to feel great, but even a little better is worth the effort. Having all my new Spark friend to encourage me helps !!!!!! emoticon

LOL, Thanks Jules, I know you are right. This E.T.L. seems extreme in some ways. But will admit I am actually feeling a bit better. Don't know if I will stick to it always, but will for awhile.

Pixie - I have read and re-read Eat to Live. Your creamer is not a deal breaker. You will stop using it when you are ready. Don't lose sleep over it. Best wishes to you.

Welcome back Pixie!

Hi Pixie,
I have been doing this for about 3 weeks, I am 66 years old and have only lost 5 lbs, but I already feel better. I fell off the wagon today and that is disappointing, but to address your cream in the coffee. I had the same problem, I loved my coffee with cream in the morning. Just cutting back did not help me, I had to quit cold turkey with the crème. I started making my coffee less strong, and now I drink it black with just some sweet n low. I do not miss the crème. Maybe that can work for you. I hope so...good luck to you.

Hi Pixie. I am 63 also and decided that this site looks very good to me. It's my first day here. I am pleased to meet you. I haven't tried the plan you mentioned but it seems like I have tried every diet under the sun. I think my plan this time is to eat healthy foods in moderate portions. I know I can't "be on a diet" for the rest of my life. So, that seems reasonable to me. I hope you do well. It's funy how hard some "little" things, like cream in your coffee, can be to give up. Good luck.

Hi, I am Pixie, I tried this once few years ago. Life got busy, an I stopped. But I am now 63, an Still need to lose a lot. Has anyone on here tried the "Eat To Live Plan"? I tried it faithfully for 3 days, then busted, but will start again in the morning. I do feel better, an I am losing some. I just can NOT give up the crem in my coffee..........but have cut it down to a small amount an only 2 cups. Could use some input if anyone else has tried it God Bless !!
