It’s almost two months since the end of my 100 day juice fast.
For all of my life before I have dieted, lost weight and then, in the space of a month or two, put it all back on again!
I’m sure that if you have ever suffered with weight issues, you completely get what I’m talking about here!
This time, after losing a massive amount of weight over the course of 100 days, something amazing has happened…I have not gained a single pound back over the past 52 days of eating!
Not only that, but, I have continued to lose weight, albeit slowly, but nevertheless lose it and feel better and better in myself!
I am 62 years old and have never felt better!
What do I attribute this to?
Simply the Whole Food Plant Based lifestyle, or WFPB as it is known! (Here’s a small section of pics of the food I have been eating over the past 52 days!)
This is exactly what it says…no meat, no dairy, no fish, no eggs, no animal products and avoiding oil, salt and sugar wherever possible. I no longer have any oils in my home other than what I wear!
Wholefood oil comes from avocado, nuts and other unprocessed sources that I eat and not pour.
Wholefood means unprocessed.
The whole of the food.
So, potatoes are cooked in their skins and I try to incorporate as much as possible of the whole of the food.
The proof of the lifestyle can be seen in my own body every day as I continue to lose the excess weight in a healthy, balanced and kind to Mother Earth way.
I am writing about this in my next book and will share all the knowledge I have gained in the new lifestyle I have embraced…I have NEVER felt this good in my body and mind!
And a reminder of my weight problem and ensuing health problems from last year…Now that I’m here, I’m never going back!
