    OK make that 3 books. A friend of mine recommended Nourishing Traditions. She is a "normal" woman without any visible health issues, yet she says eating according to that plan has restored her health. Doctors were about to put her on antidepressants because they and she believed that her exhaustion was depression.

    She is a cross fitter and a christian. She believes that as long as she eats things the way God made them, she can't go wrong. She does eat grains, limited to 2 servings max but sprouted, organic and non GMO. Now, for me grains are problematic, but it may be a way to get my husband and kids on board.

    She found a farm where she gets raw dairy and organic free range chickens and has offered to take me some Sunday. Speaking of dairy, I've been eating full fat greek yogurt with breakfast. Yum.

    So for now, I will eat according to SPII but aiming to find organic, grass fed sources for our food.

    Theatre Update on "Annie Get Your Gun" I auditioned last Saturday afternoon. I was called back for the role of Dolly Tate, the asst. to Frank Butler who gets displaced by Annie and becomes the sort of villain of the show.

    Callbacks were supposed to happen on Monday night but were postponed to next Thursday. I cannot go because that is the day before "Lust N' Rust" opens. I sent the director some references to call if he is still interested in me. I won't be terribly disappointed if I don't get the role. It is a 40 min drive to the theatre from my home.

    And...I had my first professional head shot taken last night. They put pictures of the actors and actresses in the lobby of the theatre for the run of the show.

    I have heard many good things about Nourishing Traditions.

    How fun to have your "professional head shot" posted in the lobby, that kicks it up a notch! congrats.

    I have heard good things about NT as well. I personally think there are a number of permutations that will work. The key is finding what works for your body and sticking to it long enough to heal your body and then let it work.

    VLC doesn't work for me - but it's because I don't enjoy it. I can reduce carbs, but I love things like butternut squash, pumpkin, etc. Rice, other grains? Don't need those I've often wondered if I was willing to eat more organ meats if that would change things for me.

    I think it's hard because you see so many different variations that apparently work...and it seems like the success stories are about pretty fast changes. And so we keep trying different things - VLC, IF, etc. I don't know, other than it's all rather confusing.

    Cheering you on as you find the workable solution for you.

    I will be interested in your results as you follow nourishing traditions. It would be great if this was the avenue that got the family on board.

    I'm really critical of photos of myself. I generally feel that I am completely unphotogenic. It would be really cool to get professional photos taken someday so I can at least have one to be proud of!

    I have to get the NT book, but they have lots of info on their website.

    I know that choosing something and sticking with it is the key. I think that I am looking for something that my entire family can live with while still helping me heal my metabolism and eating disorder.

    Finding something that the whole family can live with is a major issue in our house. Although as it turns out DH has gotten this bug in his bonnet about meat, I am trying to ignore it. I have been mostly making a salad (caesar for the kid, and BAS for DH and I) then a protein and a veggie or 2. When I do something carby for them it is usually on the side of at least the salad. Over the course of a couple of weeks I make them homemade pizza one night and pasta one night and they get ice cream one night each weekend and once a month or so I make a loaf of bread when we have company-none of which I eat. I use the best sources I can and make everything from scratch, so I figure they are better off than most. Small changes and eventually they will have changed over and not even realize it.

    Getting my family on board on has been key to my success. It's taken a long time. I had to do it gradually. [I tried the radical "they will change with me" approach, and that DID not work!] I think starting with a "traditional, whole food" approach is good. I still make DH rice sometimes, but something like that is easy for me to bypass. [It's not completely perfect. I'd love to ditch the "nuts" and the occasional "treats", but mom and DH "need" these things. But, it's better than chips, crackers, and candy, so I'll take it!]

    DD was on a restricted diet almost from birth due to allergies she now no longer has. She also has an issue with food so I do not think I will ever get there with her. However, its not hard to deviate with just one.
