Veggie Challenged - NOTICE: New Challenge/Group Starting

05-13-2006, 11:59 AM
Today is Saturday, May 13, 2006.

Junia, San*_* and I are starting a new diet challenge soon based on the book "Eat to Live" by Dr. Joel Fuhrman (see The book outlines an initial plant-based six-week plan eating nutrient dense foods to cleanse your system and promises dramatic weight loss. We haven't yet outlined the "terms" of our challenge and invite your input.

The plan will be very challenging for me, a voracious meat eater. It will be challenging for vegans Junia and San*_* as well. I will probably not follow the plan exactly but hopefully will achieve my goal of eating more veggies. At minimum, I expect to be healthier and lighter.

Please join us if you are interested. We will probably start our support group in the Veggie Chicks forum as it's less crowded over there.

Here we are. Three ladies standing united against the fat. And fighting it fiercely with carrots, celery sticks and we will even violently attack with a can of low cal cooking spray if there is some sneaky flab trying to attack us in the dark hours of the night. Cherry tomatoes are our bullets and lettuce leaves our shield. I just ripped a pair of jeans yesterday, and who was to blame, yes the enemy, the flab. The war has begun....
Anyone wanting to join the team can and is most welcome to!
