    Hope this is rainbowish enough.

    No one here yet so thought I would shock everyone and get this started.

    Weigh-in opps forgot. I was sick all night. I think from the shrimp I ate. I hardly ever have it and when I eat stuff I don't normally eat my stomach retaliates.

    Breakfast - 1 banana, 1 cup of joe

    Lunch - out at Cope. probably roast mashed potatos, veggie and salad.
    Hope everyone has a good day.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -185; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Don't live life comparing yourself to everyone else.
    God has created you to be you and you are free to be you.

    Is there chopped liver in there Aussie? Vegetarians will rise up and revolt! Seriously congrats on the start cause I wouldn't be able to post a picture of my ankle! (Favorite body part ) How was the shower? Any Chip n Dale dancers? I plan to try a lot harder today. I'm still eating the same things, it must still be too much tho cause the scale is not cooperating!

    I've watched the Furman special also Judy and I downloaded his book. I like his message because its a lot like yours except his plan is very stringent and I don't think many people could follow it. I know I never could. PBS should put you on during pledge week!

    Yes Kathy his version is very hard to follow I may make that salad dressing or experiment with some in my blender to see if it is any good .. He advocate zero processed foods that's kind of hard to follow reading labels to get the best processed food choice is my way the less processing the better ...
    I am not famous and have no books to sell so I would be a bad money maker for the PBS station
    I do like to get my fats from avocados and nuts though and I am avoiding sugar

    There are some people on the Diet Debate board who follow Fuhrman and Ornish type ways of eating. Both are supposed to reverse heart disease. Webmd used to have an Ornish board years ago. Very interesting stuff.

    Hi Michelle eating as healthy and as close to the Fuhrman diet
    can probably reverse heart disease I know my Nutrition quest took away the asthma I had since I was a baby
    I had what was called chronic asthma for many years I accepted that and dealt with it as well as I could It was the losing of vision that's got me started on a nutrition quest
    after being on my quest approx. 3 years that;s when the asthma went away It was getting easier to control earlier in the quest But I stopped buying medicine after 3 years on plan
    So there is truth to eating healthy improving your health
