8/11/18 – 143.2
You may want to skip this rant and conversation I am having with myself.
I seem to have tried most of the popular diets over the last few years and a few more than once. Nothing sticks, nothing leaves me satisfied and feeling strong and healthy except the Eat To Live way of eating. That is a low fat (not no fat) vegan diet. I did it years ago and lost weight. Haven’t lost any weight since. I know why I stopped it. It is because I live in an area of the country where that is just plain “unnatural” and “unavailable”. I can common vegetables but no organics at the one grocery in this town and can drive 50 to 60 miles away to a grocery or specialty shop to get unusual food items and ordering on line for some products is easy. We do have two local farmer’s market but at one you have to order on line ahead of time so you don’t get to pick your produce and only comes in set sizes. The other is small, but good. But both are only open once a week. The really difficult part is that every social event is accompanied by food. Good old Southern food and by that, I mean mostly meat, fat, and sugar! And there is not one restaurant that offers anything vegan other than a salad bar. Even the fruits and vegetables are sugared or fried.
