I'm a vegetarian who can't cook well. I'm trying to learn how to cook, eat a healthy diet, eat less chocolate and lose weight. I'm here to find cooking ideas. I have been following Eat to Live book by Joel Furhman.

I'm finding out that when I eat mostly fruits and veggies I lose weight (I've lost over 15 pounds) and when I start eating the junk the weight comes back (hey doesn't that makes sense). And here is the best part, I'm never hungry.

I exercise 40 minutes on my elliptical, and I have been doing P90X three times a week (finished P90X and will start again sometime). I also do some exercise DVDs, lift weights and other exercise. I always need ideas for other exercise ideas.

Losing weight by eating healthy foods. Learning to cook will help.

I have been following the Eat To Live plan.

Eating lots of fruits and veggies and some beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.

Exercise 20 minutes a day on the elliptical and 20-30 minutes with DVD cadio exercises. I also lift weights with exercise DVD's and other exercise.

    Thank you for the lists and sites to help you through the holiday. I printed out the one for the 6 week plan. That will be very helpful to carry with me.

    thank you for your comments.... emoticon

    I hope your expectations for more jobs coming back into the US comes true.
    I just question how that will work. The Republican Party's platform involves support for free market capitalism, free enterprise, business, deregulation, and restrictions on labor unions. For as long I've read about politics, Republicans have been for less government involvement in business. The big corporations are global. So it will be interesting to see how this works.
    People don't want to pay more for stuff. Overseas manufacturing has lower wages.
    It would be nice to see our infrastructure improved, but there again the Republicans have been voting against a lot of those items in the past 8 years.

    The world's economy is hurting. Let's see what happens emoticon
