I have been silent for awhile as I am healing from injuries and not on my desktop much. There is always a silver lining though. While healing from injuries I tend to lose weight. Between the injuries and my nutritarian diet, I have now lost 15% of my body weight.
During September 2017, I lost 7 pounds, which is 3 times as much as I have ever lost in a single month before. As of today I am 123.2 which is a loss of 15% of my body weight and almost half-way to my goal of losing approximately 33% of my total body weight.
In addition to weight loss, another benefit of the Nutritarian Eat To Live way of eating is that it is getting me to try foods I have never eaten before. That is making Jamey happy as some of them are southern vegetables that I have never had an interest in but that he has missed having including purple-eyed peas (I had never even heard of them before), collard greens, mustard greens and turnip greens.
Jamey is, and likely always will be, a carnivore but this is at least increasing the variety of vegetables in his diet, so it is good for him, in addition to being good for me.
I am in two Nutritarian Facebook groups (Eat to Live Support Group and Nutritarian Women). Between what I am seeing in them, on YouTube, on other websites and in Dr. Fuhrman’s writings, I strongly believe that the reason Dr. Fuhrman doesn’t add a “results not typical” disclaimer when he publishes results that people have obtained with the nutritarian diet (both weight loss and coming off of diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol medication) is that because for those who stick with the diet, the results are typical. I am thrilled with my own weight loss and looking forward to seeing the results of my next fasting bloodwork (in November).
I am resting a lot and trying to get back on my feet so that I can get back to doing more than the absolutely necessary things needed to take care of Jamey and the cats. As I continue to heal, I plan to get back back to posting on a more regular schedule and working on YouTube videos again as I still have a lot to learn about doing videos and the only way I will learn it it by doing them.
Hopefully by this weekend, we will also be back to our normal schedule with Jamey doing his Sunday posts.
In the meantime, I am grateful to the Nutritarian diet for the benefits I am seeing from it.
