My weight has gone up and down like a roller coaster ride through the years. I had the ‘gut feeling’ I was headed for trouble if I didn’t make some quick changes in my eating behavior. I didn’t want to succumb to a heart attack, stroke, diabetes or cancer.

Fortunately for me, I lost fifty pounds in the nick of time simply by changing which foods I ate. I went from 205+ lbs. way down to 158 lbs. all within a single year.

My blood pressure decreased to 100/60, my energy skyrocketed and I began feeling a lot healthier. I lost an average of about 5 lbs. a month and I haven’t gained any back like on all those fad diets you see on TV.

I am sharing with you what worked for me in hopes it will work for you, too...

I knew I was on to something big when I dropped fifty pounds.  My weight problem was due to the ‘standard American diet’ we all have grown to love.

Although, I still love pizza, burgers and fries, I don’t eat them anymore because I don’t want to go back to the way I was. I do though suffer the consequences of inflammation though during holidays like Easter, Christmas and Thanksgiving when I feast on turkey, candies and desert.

It makes no sense losing weight unless your health improves, too.

What brought me all the good results was eating plant based whole food. This means, I don’t eat any animal products like meat. I also eat little to no processed and refined foods and don’t cook with oil or drizzle olive oil on my salads.

If you like eating fruit, beans, lentils, potatoes, salads, steamed vegetables and brown rice, this way of eating just might be right up your alley.

I try to buy all my food organic which also are free of poison insecticides, chemical fertilizers and GMO’s.

As a result of healthy eating, I haven’t been to the doctor in years, and no longer suffer from gout and rheumatoid arthritis symptoms.

Note- contact your doctor before you change your diet. Do not attempt self diagnosis and cure yourself strictly through diet. It is no substitute for a physician’s care. Go to How I lost 50 pounds eating more.
