Buying Big Clothes
Saturday, June 08, 2013      2 comments

My weight is going down very nicely at 6.4# since the high on Monday. That's rather typical in the first week of a diet change, so no worries there. Besides, I was just coming off TOM as well. So why did I buy the big clothes? It was som... Read more
Too Much Lunch
Thursday, June 06, 2013      0 comments

Yesterday I went out to lunch with my friends. (I may want to get my extra weight off, but I want to keep my social life, too.) We went to a gourmet pizza place. Since the place specialized in pizza, I ordered one. After I got home, I looked... Read more
Lost My Dinner
Wednesday, June 05, 2013      3 comments

I'm not sure what to make of yesterday. I "lost" my dinner. How does one track that? My son was cooking his dinner and was burning kale in a frying pan. The smell of it drove me out of my work area, and I "lost" my dinner right after that. ... Read more

Greasy Eggs
Saturday, October 01, 2011      1 comments

I've noticed that when I eat eggs, my weight goes down the next day. So yesterday, I made a bacon and egg lunch. I made the mistake of not draining off some of the bacon grease before I cooked my two eggs, though. I ended up with some very gr... Read more

Friday, September 16, 2011      7 comments

I have just come across the most cogent explanation for why our digestive system identifies us as carnivores. It also explains why a high-fat diet is necessary for us. What an herbivore consumes and what ends up in its bloodstream are very dif... Read more
Does the American Heart Association know about these studies?

I continue to read "Natural Health & Weight Loss" by Barry Groves. I am currently reading about fats. A study was done in 1965 by Rose GA et al to assess survival rates in patients eating different fats and oils. In this study, patients w... Read more

B-12 shortage?
Wednesday, March 23, 2011      8 comments

I ran into some difficulties that I believe were related to veganism. As I told my doctor, I had problems with physical depression. My mood was fine, but I did not feel like doing much of anything. I was sleeping too much. Also, the corners ... Read more
Diet change needed
Saturday, November 20, 2010      4 comments

I've noticed lately that my mood has not been as stable as it has been in the past. I looked online to see if there was a link between my vegan diet and the signs of depression I have been experiencing. Sure enough, there was a link. While th... Read more
I have lost my taste for meat.
Sunday, October 24, 2010      5 comments

I thought perhaps I would treat my husband for an evening out at a steak house, since he still very much enjoys meat. I signed up for the assignment well in advance of the event. The date would be three months to the day since I began my veget... Read more
