I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm from the Easy Bay area (closer to San Jose). I've been PBing for close to 2 months now and I want to say how great I've found it.
More energy, more stamina, less weight fluctuations, less hunger, overall satisfaction with my diet (notice the small d in diet) and just a better quality of life.
I frequently find myself looking around the MDA site during the day, so I may leave a comment here or there, hopefully I can get to know some of you fellow PBers out there.
See you all on the forums!
San Jose PBer here.
Been PB'ing since Nov 2009.
I've experienced the same benefits. It's great, isn't it?
Yes, it really is amazing. I'm still working on getting my wife on board, but she is a native Japanese woman, and its hard for her to think of life without rice. I think I have my work cut out for me!
It might be easier than you think. My Taiwan born boss tells me he's eating less rice than he used to, after seeing all the weight I've lost.
Baby steps, I guess.
