I'm a nutritional anthropologist by trade. You'd think after spending all this time studying our history of food, I'd know better than to let myself get 200 lbs.

But knowing what's *right* to eat, doesn't mean I follow through.

Why did I get here? Emotional Eater; Portion Size; love of all that is processed.

AT the same time, I have some really wonderful eating habbits, like tons of vegies (just drowned in butter or cheese), lots of variety, no sweet drinks (nor diet drinks), tons of water... so there are good things to build from. But now it's taking what I know, and translating it into "do do do"

2) 10 different vegies, 5 different fruits each week, changing out 5 per week. Trying for 20-25 different vegies and 10-20 different fruits each month

Personal Information:
I'm from Colorado.

I'm a nutritional Anthropologist specializing in ancient Mezo and North american pre-Columbian cultures, but with a love of the ancient middle east as well.

Other Information:
Looking for interesting harvest recipes? I've collected tons of Native American recipes over time, that use so-called "traditional" native produce and meats.

Ask, but I'll also post some on line as I go.

    Ohhhhhh.....I SO HATE the idea of "magic pills" - in fact, there are really no such things - think of the alerts all over the media about some of these "miracle" diet aids that are causing all sorts of problems with people's do NOT want to go there, believe me!

    This is a great place for support and information - and if you want to get a real feel for just what you eat during the day and its caloric impact, as RAYLINSTEPHENS mentioned - check out the Nutrition Tracker!

    Check out the SparkTeams area - if you have concerns about self-discipline, you may find that associating with a group of like-minded folks may be of help to you in achieving your goals and keeping you on track....
