I eat WFPBNO and track every day. I lost much of my weight as I transitioned to this way of eating, and it was tracking that helped me see how much more food I could enjoy if I switched to WFPBNO. I not only felt much better when I got to this way of eating, but I think that it would have made the weight loss much quicker.

I try to get my g-bombs in every day. I find that when I fill up on nutritious foods, I'm much less tempted to eat junk food. I also listen (and re-listen) to Dr. Fuhrman on YouTube and read his books so that I stay motivated. I need to keep my health on the front burner after having neglected it for so many years. I don't focus on how fast the scale is moving downward. I know that this is for life and I can see that little by little I am losing weight and I feel better and better. Last week, I was able to buy a size I haven't worn in many years. And of course, I try to walk and get adequate movement, But the main thing is eating to live!

I'm currently reading Dr. Fuhrman's The End of Dieting. He writes: "The more you eat healthful meals, and the more days you link together nutrition, exercise, and a positive mind-set, the more your brain will respond to them - and the more you'll come to prefer eating healthfully." I've found that to be true in my life. We can do this!

No matter how slow you go, you are STILL lapping everybody on the couch.

Your weight losses are proving this program is working. Any other valuable pointers?

I like to track whether I'm on plan or not. I color-code my meals on the calendar. If I've had a perfect nutritarian meal, I put a green circle. If I've deviated just a bit, it's yellow. And if I've eaten off-plan, it's red. That way, it's easy for me to look back on my month to see if I've been eating on-plan or not. It's easy to think that a diet doesn't work, but often it's me not doing the diet. When I see too many yellows and reds, I know why the diet isn't "working"! I find that tracking gives me useful information.

I don't currently track. I plan to keep a calendar, or even just a piece of paper in my health note-book showing which meals I met all goals and which ones I did not.

My goals are that each meal be WFBP and no SOS. So even if I don't go all day, I might still get two good meals in. The hope is to see a higher percentage of all on track meals each week until I actually get to whole months where I meet the goals for every meal.

I aspire to have many meatless and boozeless days but unless I specifically track and set goals they don't happen.

Get good at lifelong learning.
