Welcome! I was finally able to reach my goal and turn my life around by following the advice of Dr. Esselstyn, Dr. McDougall, and Dr. Fuhrman. They recommend a plant based lifestyle, where you eat HEALTHY foods using no added oils. The weight began falling off of me and now I eat all of the time and love the recipes and eat delicious food. A few additional websites I use for recipes are fatfreevegan.com and happyherbivore.com. Good luck to you.

I'm new here. I just joined a few days ago and I am really wanting to fit into my size 12 jeans again. I've gained 60lbs in the past 6 years since I met my husband. I just got married in November and I'm looking to lose back down to what I weighed when I was 20. I've always been heavy ~ Now I want to be healthy since My husband and I are starting a new life together. I'm really excited I found this website. I have a work out buddy but I know I'm going to need lots of support and motivation. I'm planning to really kick off my plan as a new years resolution in January. I hope I can get to know you guys!
