Dr. Fuhrman tells us that we eat far too many empty calories in a day making it the number one reason we struggle with health and weight issues.
His antidote has always been to get a whole lot more calories from nutrient-dense sources, especially those rich in micronutrients like vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
His top picks are all plants, including leafy greens, beans, onions, mushrooms, berries and seeds, which deliver up to 1,000 different micronutrient compounds for as few as 25 calories.
By contrast, beef and cheese have about 50 times fewer micronutrients per calorie and processed foods may have none at all.

Not long ago British scientists found that consuming more micronutrients is often the only significant factor that sets a lean woman apart from her overweight identical twin. Why? For starters, antioxidants clear cells of toxins that interfere with fat burning. There's also additional evidence that certain plant compounds accelerate fat metabolism while others are angiogenesis inhibitors--or micronutrients that block the blood supply to fat cells so that they shrink.
Antioxidants also soothe thyroid-stalling inflammation. Bonus, Dr. Fuhrman's way of eating decreases inflammation so rapidly you'll release pounds of fluid that your body retained to buffer irritation!
There's more! A person who eats low-nutrient foods develops an unrelenting desire to eat too much in a futile attempt to make up for the deficit. As micronutrient intake improves, the problem disappears. You are able to eat until you are content while losing weight aggressively. Your taste buds change over as well and you begin to prefer micronutrient-rich foods. It gets easier the longer you do it!

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

By now I'm sure you've all heard that we have legalized medicinal cannabis. Well, after giving this some long consideration I've looked into it. There's no cost but there are strict guidelines one has to adhere to. There was a medical form I had to fill out and submit. They are in contact with my doctor. So it's all above board and the dosage I will be on will not in any way inhibit me the way "recreational" cannabis does whether smoked or eaten. The dosage I will be on is specific to my pain and stress levels.
I will have a medical professional assigned to me that I have to check in with on a regular basis.
It is delivered directly to my door.
I have a video conference call next Wednesday at 5:30 pm to finalize everything.

I've tried everything else from prescriptions to organic as you know and eventually my pain and stress levels have changed so that I needed to find other solutions for quality of life.

I'll know more after Wednesday and keep you in the know.

Yes! Thanks for posting this. I've read other places about the "trap" of the scale, and I'm not a fan of scales.

No matter what our weight, we can use the cues from our physical and mental selves to judge how healthy we are.

Health is not and should never be a numerical concept and cannot be defined using statistics. As human beings, however, we tend to want to quantify well-being into easily understandable figures. We feel compelled to ascribe numbers to every aspect of wellness, from the qualities of our food to our fitness levels to the physical space we occupy. As a consequence of social pressures, we turn our attention away from health and focus instead on the most contentious of these figures--weight--checking our scales to see how we measure up to our peers and role models. Yet each of us is equipped to gauge our relative healthfulness without any equipment whatsoever. When we have achieved a state of wellness, we feel buoyant and energetic. Some of us are naturally slim, while others will always be curvy. No matter what our weight, we can use the cues we receive from our physical and mental selves to judge how healthy we really are.

When you throw away your scale, you commit to a lifestyle that honours the innate wisdom that comes from within your body and within your mind. It is logical to examine how you feel while considering your health--a strong, fit, and well-nourished individual will seldom feel heavy, bloated, or fatigued. If you have concerns regarding your weight, remind yourself that at its proper weight, your body will feel buoyant and agile. Movement becomes a source of joy. Sitting, standing, walking, and bending are all easy to do because your joints and organs are functioning as they were meant to. When you are physically healthy, your mind will also typically occupy a place of well-being. Mental clarity and an ability to focus are two natural traits of whole-self health. Surprisingly, promoting this type of easy-to-discern wellness within yourself takes no special effort outside of satisfying your hunger with nourishing, wholesome foods and moving your body.

The numbers you see on the scale, while nominally informative, can prevent you from reaching your healthful eating goals by giving you a false indicator of health. You will know when you have achieved true health because every fibre of your being will send you signals of wellness. When you choose to listen to these signals instead of relying on the scale, your definition of well-being will be uniquely adapted to the needs of your body and of your mind.

This was in my inbox this morning! Thought it quite informative.

Most Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) treatments focus on severely restricting foods from the diet while adding in drugs OR supplements to manage the symptoms.

This is a serious PROBLEM because it just doesn’t work!

The actual #1 cause of IBS is actually a little-known condition called Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)?

Over 80% of those diagnosed with IBS have SIBO. In SIBO, bacteria that belong in the large intestine make their way into the small intestine where they eat and ferment partially digested foods leading to:

- Bloating and Gas
- Abdominal cramping
- Constipation and/or Diarrhea
- Heart Burn and Nausea

If this bacterial overgrowth isn’t effectively eradicated, nothing is going to work in relieving the symptoms.. not even severely restricting your diet or taking unhealthy amounts of drugs or supplements.
If anyone is interested there is a free session/clinic where he, Dr. Jason Klop, N.D. shares the simple 5-step game plan that his patients use to beat IBS/SIBO naturally and reclaim their life, health and sanity

Without medication…

Without side effects…

AND without setting foot into a doctors office!

I do have chronic conditions that would be helped by improving my health--which includes losing weight and exercising consistently. I have type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I'm working of reducing my dependence on medications.

Aside from needing to lose the weight, We all have other health issues.
With the initial weight, I've lost I've alleviated a number of issues but still have some to deal with.
Presently mine is mostly asthma and weakened muscles in my back.
I'm on ventalin and Advair for asthma and doing strengthening exercises for my back.
So yes, I need to shed these last pounds.

What issues are you dealing with?
