I couldn't believe my eyes!  They things they allow on Weight Watchers like pasta, potatoes, breads, and LEAN meats.  Don't they know yet that fat burns fat?

I was sickened by this diet once upon a time and actually gained weight!  This was back in the 70's!

I fell in love with the Walnut oil I got at the good food store.  A little goes a long way!  How much do you cook with these two oils?

We still have 3 feet of snow on the ground with a base of ice under it, so I am not doing much outside.  Since my husband is handicapped and spends most of his time in the loft at his computer, and seldom goes up and down the stairs which he should be doing, I am the one using the two flights of stairs as my personal stair stepper.  Up and down the stairs - routine - let dog out at 6
am, come back in and up stairs to ask Doug what he would like for his breakfast, run downstairs again, go to freezer in basement, upstairs to cook, then carry loaded tray up to loft, run back down again, feed cats and dog, run back upstairs.  then climb on treadmill for 3.5 mph walk in 22 to 23 minutes.  then downstairs, let dog out, come back upstairs, help Doug get dressed...and my day continues up and down stairs.  I love it!

What I see from my treadmill?

Research / Polysystic Kidney Disease

I have a very close friend with this disease.  She lives in Canada.  She is in the hospital because her problem has become very much bigger.  They have her on a renal diet in which she can have some protein, some dairy, some bread, some veggies.  But this is absolutely killing her.  Does anyone have any experience with someone with this problem?  I want to help my friend live long enough to see her children out of high school and into collage.  She is 45 years old, and her doctors have given her just another 5 years.  She will be going on dialysis this summer.  It seems to me that this is the wrong food to give her.  What do you think?

Miscellaneous / Looking for an actual food list
« on: March 21, 2011, 08:02:28 AM »
of what you can have and what you cannot have.  Is there such a list?  And what list is it for foods that everyone on this list uses?


Our Good Food store in Missoula, Montana does not have any of these items.  I have coconut milk - as sometimes I cook Chinese and some of the receipes I used to make called for it.  But I cannot find coconut flour or oil.  any suggestions?

Espicially for the Paleo diet.  I'm 70 years old, on no medications of any kind, and got chunky over the last 15 years.  I started this diet about 2 1/2 weeks ago, and I love it.  I totally agree with the concepts behind the diet, and firmly believe that I'm going to make it to my 100th birthday on this diet.    I've dropped around 12 pounds and am firming up.  I have a gym sized treadmill with 9 programs on it here in my home and spend about 15 minutes a day walking on an incline at about 3.5 mph.  I'm not looking for distance, but am looking for better breathing.  I'm a non-smoker for all of my life.  I live in northwestern Montana on a mountain top 65 miles from the nearest city or hospital or doctor.  I cannot walk outside because of mountain lions, grizzley bear and other dangerous wildlife.  So I happily get on my treadmill. 

Anyway I'm looking for tasty receipes.  I have a vertical rotisserie that I'm using for all of my meats......and I must say it's the best cooking appliance I've ever used in my life.  But nuff of that, I'm very pleased with the results of the diet.  I even put my 80 year old boyfriend on it as well, and he just threw his pain medications away as he says he feels so good he may not have to take them again.    He is a Korean vet and has been overweight for the past 35 years.....320 pounds and he's now down to 280 pounds as of this morning.  He likes this diet too.
