Hi! My name is Laura. I have been a member of Sparkpeople for a many years now. I have watched it grow from a small, intimate community to this growing, thriving universe! I am pleased to have been a part of the growth.

I used to struggled with losing weight. But now I am healthy and have attained and MAINtained an ideal weight for over 12 months by turning my back on conventional wisdom (low fat, high carb) and embracing a more evolutionary approach.

I ditched grains and sugar, all processed foods (all of them!), and "industrial seed oils" (corn, soy, canola, all so-called vegetable oils). My diet is all natural foods: meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, nuts and berries. Cook my foods in butter, coconut oil, bacon fat, avocado oil or any other healthy fat that is on hand.

I sleep better, have CURED my allergies, don't get acne, healed my toe nail fungus, increased my tolerance to sun, cold, and heat. My seasonal depression appears to have gone away, too. All this without medication, supplementing only with vitamin D3 and probiotics.

My macro nutrient profile would be called high fat, moderate protein, low carb. I eat when I'm hungry as much as I want. I NEVER count calories, weigh or measure my food. And I am in complete control because I have no sugar cravings driving me to eat and eat and eat! This is not a gimmicky diet, it is a bio-chemically scientific approach to being healthy! I eat the way the human body EVOLVED to eat. Want more info? Just contact me. I've got nothing to sell, but I can direct you to where you can learn more.

    Laura I live in tungass forest. It would be impossible for me to keep growth away if I don't kill the ground within my property lines. Completely impossible, imagine buying an 8th of an acre in the middle of a deeply wooded forest, where no man has ever lived or even seen... I can't even see the sky thru the trees, it's that thick. Clearing area is a safety issue.

    Hi, i just wanted to stop by and say thanks for all the wonderful info you posted on the Organic Gardeners page. Super enlightening, my dad is a landscaper and yard maintenance. I'm going to pass this on to him. DH and I are just starting our yard so this info will help us too. You're awsome good luck on all your goals
