Yes, I prepare meals for my husband, who is a heart patient, so he enjoys eating healthy too. I have the same cookbook and there are some wonderful recipes inside.

I do eat a lot of fresh fruits, and veggies mostly consisting of salads. I do roast root veggies like sweet potato, cauliflower, broc. and include in my diet. I try to have a protein with either lunch or dinner. Fish or chicken either grilled using about a tsp. of olive oil. Whole grains are also part of my daily routine using quinoa and brown rice and steel cut oats. Hope this helps. Still strongly motivated, I think due to the daily walking.
Yes, my annual physical was coming up and for the last five years my doctor told me I needed to lose weight because of heart issues in my family and also a history of colon cancer. I decided I would lose weight before he saw me. I used JJ Smith’s 10-day Green Smoothie Cleanse. That got me started and my doctor was delighted I had dropped 12 pounds. After the physical, my liver enzymes were slightly elevated. Of course, I read everything I could on liver problems. The key to a healthy liver is fresh fruits, veggies and no sugar, lots of water. I made up my mind this would be my way of life. It’s not hard and after many tests, turns out I have a genetic problem that is nothing to worry about. I will continue following The Liver Cleansing Diet by Dr. Sandra Cabot.
I started by drinking green smoothies, see 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse by JJ Smith. I drank two smoothies a day and a small dinner with protein and salads for two weeks. Snacks were carrots, celery, radishes, lots of water. Then back to a regular diet including whole grains, fresh veggies and fresh fruits. I didn’t miss sweets because of the fresh fruits. Herbal tea helped when I thought I was hungry. Mind set!! Get moving, you can do it!
The switch has recently gone off in my mind and for the last four months, I no longer eat anything white except cauliflower. No sugar, flour, pasta. No more Coke, ice cream, sweets and all the other unhealthy foods. Only water and lemon are consumed, along with fresh fruits and veggies. Protein with dinner, no red meat. The key to better health is exercise. I now walk 30 minutes every day and enjoy salsa music to keep me moving. I feel better than ever in my 71 years. Healthy eating and exercise are addictive and I have also dropped 35 pounds and have a goal of losing 15 more. You can do it! Weight loss and healthy living is definitely starts with a mind set.
