How possible is this? I am on a journey to try it… I don’t know how I will fare, but I have not lost any weight, and I can’t seem to lower my cholesterol. I do not want to be on meds at all, and I really won’t incorporate soy into my diet to supplement either. I will eat only organic, and keep a journal. Any input would be wonderful. I am 42, 5’4….and do not even want to share my weight. I do know I should not be at this weight, and I feel horrible.
We are also struggling to lose excess weight and it’s coming off slowly. I guess it took years to put it there and patience along with the exercise and diet would help? If you are really going on any kind of “Vegan” diet be sure to check your vitamin levels beforehand because CD/GS makes us more likely to be deficient and needing supplementing to restore. Any veggie only diet will not give you all the vitamins and minerals needed because some vitamins like B-12 are only gotten from eating meat/poultry and fish or from taking sublingual supplements. Maybe check with Dr. O for an opinion and help with the tests or supplements first?
You!re getting close to or in peri menopause, so it’s very difficult to lose weight now. If you eat only meat and other proteins, salad, veggies, and fish, you’ll drop the weight easily. That means no grains, starchy vegetables, potatoes, rice, dairy, sugar, or alcohol. Once you lose it all, you can add back some potato and starchy vegetables to slow or stop further weight loss. I had the same problem at your age and couldn’t lose a pound for 8 years. If I had gone on this diet, I would have. Sugar and grains are your enemy.
