I do not know anything about it but I think that it would be funny to hear what she had people eating if they can't eat sugar. Sugar is in everything- fruits, veggies, etc. In fact, I don't think that it is really possible to not eat any form of sugar in a day. Maybe she is talking about refined sugars (at least I hope!).

I'm new to this team. I eat fish and eggs. I'm joining because I need recipe ideas using tofu and seitan(?) hoping this,(and other choices), can replace my dependence on chicken. I need recipes and/or suggestions for cookbooks members know have tried and true recipes in them. And I don't know how to prepare tofu, etc. so will be watching the forums for ideas, methods, etc.

Hummm, I think it would be really hard to give up something each week. I had no problem giving up meat, but I can't imagine just stopping caffine one week then the next week absolutely nothing with sugar. I think I would be setting myself up for a major fall. I would suggest just picking one thing that you think you could do..whether its the meat, sugar or caffine. That way, when you suceed you will have a positive attitude with your next hurdle. Let us know how you do though! Good luck!

I read a snippet about it in a magazine somewhere along the line, but I've never read it. I'm going to have to give it a look see if my local library has it.

I haven't heard of it, but it sounds interesting. I would probably have to work on each bad habit more than one week, though.

I found a great book The Great American Detox Diet by Alex Jamieson. Her boyfriend created the documentary Super Size Me! where he ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at McDonald's for a month. She created a Detox plan to get him back to healthy. It basically calls for getting rid of one bad habit a week..Week 1: drink enough water Week 2: get rid of sugar Week 3: get rid of caffeine...Any way, the basic focus is to eat vegetarian/vegan. I'd like to try it after Christmas and thought I'd find some ideas here. Anyone familar with her book? I'd be interested in a real vegan's opinion of her book/philosophy.
