To be honest I love fruit. I actually feel better and more clear headed if I have fruit and not much else for a while. But then I love to have a big serving of protein and I love vegetables. I am sure caveman would have devoured the whole berry bush when he came across it. :Looking at everyones experinces, and my own battle to lose weight, I wonder if we are all just simply eating too much?
I suggest simply being patient and by this time next year, you will be at your ideal weight.
I have met people who have lost 50+ lbs by simply giving up all grains & sugars. No additional exercise, no gym, and nothing else special.
It is the WHEAT that is responsible for an amazing amount of health problems:
* IMAGE: Wheat Belly, weight gain, Bad Cholesterol, Brain Fog, heart disease, lost energy
* MDA - WHY GRAINS ARE UNHEALTHY
* Wheat Free Diet gets AMAZING results:
* Grains - Fat melting away from not eating grains
* Wheat - Makes us feel Hungry
* Wheat - Visceral Fat, Man Boobs, Breast Cancers, blood sugar, Big Belly
* Wheat Benefits = none
* Wheat-insulin resistance,diabetes,heart disease,hypertension,cancer,arthritis,cartilage
* Wheat - Your Brain on Wheat
* Wheat Severe Joint Pain
* Wheat the Nicotine of Food contributes MIGHTILY to Diabetes
Grizz.., that you very very much for the links! I totally agree with you in regards to wheat. I've almost given it all up - almost. Isnt it interesting though that wheat is actually just a grass seed...I'm reading here more and more that the high fat intake is not working for a lot of women here. I'm one of those. Since playing around with PB eating, my weight has gone up. I'm going to enjoy going through your links. Many thanks!

I don't think it's really fair for you to say this and blame the fat, when you also admit that you haven't completely given up the wheat. Have you had a consecutive month or so without grains and minimal sugar?

Your're right Maria, I haven't totally given up the grains and sugar. Its just in the past when I have cut back on everything, including fat, I have lost a some weight. But still not a lot. CW is very ingrained...I'm going to have to experiment with my body from week to week to see what suits me. But I'm not the only one here who has put on weight. Perhaps not sticking to PB 100% is the real problem. I shall see how I go this week. And I'm walking more now that the weather is warming up.
