Hey Lisa, sounds great! Congrats on your weight loss! I always believe you have to eat for what makes your body happy. I too, had to stop being vegan for similar reasons. Happy to be on the team!

Hello Team "Eat Real Food" !

Please tell me that this team also eats meat! emoticon

I tried doing Dr. Furhman's Eat to Live, plant based diet, but decided it just wasn't for me. It's not because I don't love vegetables, I do! The majority of the food on my plate is from vegetables. I just have no energy when I give up meat. The last blood test I had while on that plan showed I was low in iron, and B12 which explained why I had no energy. I do eat beans, and whole grains also. When I went off that program and started eating seafood, beef, and chicken again, my energy improved dramatically. I am currently following Dr. Jonny Bowden's "unleash your thin" program. It emphasizes whole, organic (when possible) foods. The beef should come from grass-fed cows, and seafood wild-caught, along with chicken fed with non-gmo feed, and no antibiotics or hormones. I've been on this healthy eating plan for a little over 6 months now, and really notice a difference. My food cravings are gone, and I have tons of energy! I've lost 53 pounds, and have about 25 left to go. Most importantly, I've finally found a program that I no longer consider a diet, but a way of life. I love eating real food, and look forward to being part of this team !

Apparently we are following much the same type of plan. If you cannot pronounce it your body does not know what to do with it. eat all natural and real foods. No preseravatives

Keep on track

My name is Jennifer. I am new to the team. I am trying to lose about 40 pounds. I have been successful in the past dropping weight, but it seems to be coming back on so I am making another attempt to keep it in check.
The rule in my house about food goes like this: If you cannot pronounce it or better yet don't know what it is - don't eat it. I have switched the habits in my house from junk food junkies to no frozen entrees, chips, and wonder-food. It is amazing how making the switch can make you feel so good.
Hope to check in regularly and see how everyone is fairing and learning some tips from everyone. emoticon
