So, I read up on the 6 week challenge on the hellonutritarian website. What a great site! Never saw it before.

I'm thinking about what I need to buy and do before the challenge starts in 2 days. One thing I really need to do is make a big batch of salad dressing (and buy greens, onions and mushrooms).

I don't think it will be too hard for me to comply. I can have my green smoothies with seeds and berries, a veggie/ bean soup, a big salad with beans, a frozen banana with soy yogurt smoothie for dessert. That's what I eat most days already.

My problem is that I've been giving in to temptation and adding some of the SAD foods my kids are eating...chips, pizza, cheese, some meat now and then. They wreck havock on my body. I also have been eating ALL DAY LONG....pretty much since March. I was keeping to a 4-6 hour eating window for the last 2 years successfully, so I'm off the rails there. My ability to resist and say "no" to temptation seems to have evaporated. Hopefully a 6 week challenge will get me back on track.

Love,

Helen

In a kind of a team spirit way I am responding to this to bury my own thread a bit.
As it is for most of us things are getting busier so I am just going to do the best I can and am happy for eat t to live + Dr Fuhrman as well as Dr. Greger and other Whole Food plant based Docs and leaders!!

On March 21st I started a personal ETL challenge, with the goal to improve my eating / lifestyle so it is more in line with Dr. Fuhrman's ideas.

I have soup just about every day with lunch. I hope that will help make it easier to eat a cold salad, as well!

As the weather gets warmer here salads are easier for me- when it is cold out I tend to not want tthem or need to put warm beans or just throw greens into a soup

I've begun to make salads again for lunch, done that twice so far, I hope to turn it into a new habit. In the past I made a salad for lunch every day, for years but stopped it at some point.
In the past year I had raw cucumber, carrots and bell peppers with lunch but I think to add greens has added value.

Not doing perfect with avoiding sugar. It's a tough week now, teaching two guest classes for student nurses and tomorrow my husband is getting surgery done. I"ve changed my goal for the time beinig to 'no sugar / junkfood in the house' and 'no indulging in treats except for twice a week'.

Thank you Em!
I've begun to use more pepper and I think that helps me to add less salt to my dishes. Like you I never add salt while cooking. I taste my food and then add salt... I wish it was easier to somehow measure just how much salt I get in....

Tell me how you are making it work to avoid salt? I need inspiration...

Failed again yesterday, so let me just say today is day 1, again.

Thanks White-Green!

I'm using Nutritarian way of eating as home base- meaning I shoot for 100% most days but am ok with a little drift

-I eat a salad at least 5 days a week

-I am training for my half marathon on June 29

-I decided to ditch scale - until 7/9- a good amount of time in which I have made good decisions and see where my body is in pounds-18 weeks from now

-I am still struggling with coffee- because I find it addictive-meaning once I have it in the morning I want more and my DH gets half and half and I find it difficult to not put that in it..so I am trying to either switch to tea/decaf and caf and drink it black..or maybe a home made creamer- the commercial ones have sugar and fillers-so yuk

-and I continue to avoid salt..which has been getting better lately

-I quit drinking any alcohol - may have a drink here or there after 7/9

-no snacking
