Out with the Old...

This had been an interesting year.  I've gained and lost the same 10-15 pounds all year. My parents health continues to decline and I continue to see how their refusal to change their behavior adds volumes to the decline.

I've decided I refuse to get fatter, age too fasts, and lose my health.  New year, new me.

I just finished the book Eat to Live by Dr Joel Fuhrman. Very interesting. I've seen the documentaries Food Inc., Forks over Knives, Food Matters, etc, etc, etc.  I know what I need to do.

Plant based, much less meat, eliminate processed foods.  Easy, right? 

I continue to struggle.  Keeping my parents in mind, I'm going to try to be better.  I want to knock off some weight.  I want to find plant based foods that I like and will fill me up.  I'm not sure I'm up for the 1 pound raw, 1 pound cooked veggies a day as Dr Fuhrman recommends.  I can eat more salad and such. 

So here begins a new year. Tomorrow.  Day damn 1!
