John, you have done so well, you have inspired me to try this eating plan. I will try anything to try to aleviate it.x


 john,Hulk
john,Hulk @chewbacca

thanks helen, best way is to cut out things gradually that you love to eat,its what i did as i didnt want to feel loss for the foods i love, i gradually cut potential bad foods out over a course of 6 weeks or more, i forgot to mention bluberrys are very good, citrus fruits are not generally but, we are all different on what effects us, potatoes,peppers,tomatoes eggplants and processed meats are not good,fresh fish is great and turkey,chicken,lamb and venison,avacados are great too, i dont do any sauces of any kind or gravys,sugar is very rarely now, i have black decaf coffee and honey and my 2 litres of bottled water a day :) thanks , it is a choice ,some changes are better than nothing , i wish you well helen :)

and helen , i stopped smoking at the same time to after 32 years,i dont know how i did both things given up at the same time , diet and cigarettes, i do have ecigs to vapour but, they do not effect me in any way probably because whats in them is in foods, i still have the habit, wish that would go but,at least i dont smoke now :) yes, i feel so much better,skin and welbeing,energy and healthy weight , i was getting a big belly, i am glad i did these things/changes , i really am :) thanks

 john,Hulk
john,Hulk @chewbacca

yes, its rubbish when these things slow you down,10k + thats good very good , i am dead after 5 k , mind i havnt done that for 3 years and did it a while ago, thought i was going to die, my legs suffered for a week, i am not used to it, i have come to the conclusion exercise is bad for me :) work is enough,i do try speed walk there :)
