Food and Mood: Losing 100 Pounds!

But after three weeks my blood sugar levels evened out and after five, my (bad) cholesterol levels had dropped 72 points! My cholesterol ratio also stabilized and my blood pressure plummeted to 120 over 80—where it’s been ever since. Oh, did I mention? I lost over 100 pounds in just five months (hey, I’m a big guy—a former athlete). And except for the first couple of weeks, I was never irritable or hungry.

    Hi Richard! I’d love to find out more about *tasty* healthy recipes…do you have any links you could recommend? I’m slowly incorporating more raw and green foods into my diet and it can be a challenge to make something that actually tastes like food…

    Thanks for the awesome article!

    Check out our newsletter. There are great recipes in last column. I know because I got to test-taste them.

    and and look for Part 2 of this article coming soon.

    Also, Google Raw foods, Living Foods, Macrobiotics, etc. (try if it isn’t too far out for you).

    I have it easy, I don’t do most of the cooking around here. Or the uncooking, either. 🙂

    Remember: No one diet and no one food is right for everyone, no matter what “they” tell you. Many, many people do well on primarily cooked foods. Some people do great on meat and potatoes. I personally do better when I eat more vegetables.

    Can I add a third?

    Sugar Blues by William Dufty.

    This is a seriously scary account of the dangers of sugar consumption. I must admit I haven’t given up completely as recommmened, partly because it is so difficult to do so, but I do think that his thesis is basically correct.
