Cute. There's a whole thread on the message boards at DrMcDougall.com about calorie density. Makes so much sense.

So wish I could get my 65 year old husband enrolled, but I have given up. Even with his cardiologist suggesting a low fat vegan diet - that lasted about a month. I keep him as healthy as possible when I'm in control, but unfortunately that isn't 100% of the time.

It has to come from within, we can't do it for them. As much as I adore him I have to just let it go.

I stay on my road and I don't change lanes.

This interests me because he is my husband's height and weighed what my husband weighed a couple of years ago. My husband is down about 30 pounds and appears satisfied to stay there. It would bother me less if he did not point out people who are bigger than he is to justify his satisfaction.

I'll just have to play with it. I was going to try the hull-less barley. I think I like my grains a little more cooked than you do. I'm going to soak them and then add them to the beans I'm cooking in the crock pot tomorrow.

I'm not sure about that. Maybe do an experimental small batch soaked and then cook and test over and over checking the time to see what works for you? For me, I probably would not do more than simply adding it to the dish I was cooking at the last minute if it was in a liquid. In a casserole I imagine it wouldn't make much difference except adding a little less of whatever liquid it might have in the recipe.

I have not, but since I leave it pretty chewy I think I may try using just a long soak instead.

I always feel healthier when I practice my own little form of meditation regularly, and I started doing it a few years ago exactly the way she is describing here. Nothing elaborate, just focus and breathing. One of my realizations when I started this health journey was that I spent inordinate amounts of time holding my breath from stress, which of course fueled the stress even more.

It was entertaining. Kind of a cross between fact and a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor. I didn't watch all the videos, might go back and do that when I have more time.

This article must have been the result of a lot of creative thinking pooled by a group of people- not, I imagine, intended to be as serious as some of the replies seem to believe. I see a lot of overlap in the groups just as there is in any collection of related collections. I would have to actually make a study of it to decide which group(s) I belong in. An entertaining read:

I just finished a very eye-opening dvd called:Healling Cancer from Inside Out. by Mike Anderson. His dad died of cancer before the information was available that we have now.

Not only is this about healing the body as a whole unit, but of course our favorite subject: the healthy results of eating a plant based diet.

Lots of information also about the AMA and the ACS, suppression of information, threats on those who heal patients with natural cures, etc. As I said a real eye-opener.

You can get this video by ordering it from www.ravediet.com/?PARTNER=TCHOOKS

Thank you for these links. I am placing more on today after work. You are very helpful! What a team player. Thanks!

When you place a link in the future, use ADD A LINK directly above the posting box.

The movie that you made a link to: Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is wonderful. It was one of the first that I watched and it made an impact.
