I like veggie pho with mung bean threads in the winter! This clean diet sounds interesting, but I like to look at it as more of a lifestyle than an diet!

Congrats on your new book. Asking questions is a good way to get info so it's okay to ask. Yep, bean and vegetable soup is a good option for the winter instead of the salads. I don't like to eat many cold salads in the winter either.

Happy New Year! emoticon

@SHIRLANGEL: Got "Eat to live" and am a third though it so far... sounds sensible and good, though it's hard not wanting fast results. But, i guess lasting results is better than fast results.
It talks a lot about eating salads... is it rawfood? Haven't gotten to the menus yet...
I live in SWEDEN and it's COLD today -12. Salads work well in the summer, but in the winter i really need warm food... :-)

Both authors have written a number of books. They promote eating good natural whole foods - both raw and cooked. I have both books and am starting The Starch Solution in January.

Dr. Joel Fuhrman - his most recent book is "The End of Dieting" which is an updated version of his earlier book "Eat To Live"

Dr.. John McDougall - his most recent book is "The Starch Solution"

Ah, thanks, both of you... yes, i do believe in eating food rather than nutrition shakes or supplements.
Ok, never heard of these two diets... are there any books you recommend?
I'm not too much into raw food. I rather eat Ayurveda (lightly cooked veggies) in that case... :-)

I would try out veggie programs like Eat to Live by Fuhrman, McDougall Plans, ect.

They are clean eating based on being vegetarians and you can eat lots of veggies until your satisfied without feeling hungry

Hi, TEADRINKER7. The idea of "eating clean" is great, but temporary and very restrictive diets that leave you hungry may backfire - rebound weight gain, binges, health problems from yo-yoing, etc. If you are not sensitive to all of the foods Ms. Virgin recommends to eliminate, perhaps you don't need to worry about them. Clean eating in terms of cutting out processed food is definitely the way to go - without fasting, severe caloric restriction, extreme changes with rapid weight loss, or substituting foods you like with shakes. Whole foods tend to give you more nutrition and appetite-satisfying volume for the caloric value, and gradually incorporating them into your life can be more sustainable in the long run, with slower but more sustainable weight management.

Hi,
I tried the Virgin (or Clean) diet for 5 days in beginning of december. I felt great, but was very hungry... I would like to start it again, but "dread" the hunger, i bike to work, do yoga and strength excersise, so i do need proper meals, or i'm just "too weak".
The only way i'm going to stick to the diet if I can stand it = not being hungry the whole time.
Any ideas?
I guess other people eat meat to bait the hunger, but I'm a vegetarian, so that is not an option.
