    It all depends on preparation. It cleans you out really good, too.
    Rinse it before cooking, cook with broth, onions, a little caraway seed, salt and pepper to taste. Cook until it's soft. If it's still too sour, add a couple of apple wedges when cooking.
    I love it raw, but have to rinse it first. I come from sauerkraut country so the stuff I find here is not the optimum

    I am fighting my weight too. I am pushing 50 so that is probably a factor. But the reality is unless a person has thyroid problems it is likely too any calories and not enough exercise, the simple answer. For me to lose weight, I have to fit 3-5 sessions of something aerobic in each week, 20 minutes or more, and really watch my carbs. Easier said than done. So, lots of green and lean veggies and protein, limited fat and breads and sugars. Going back to the basics works best for me. Weight Watchers is the best weight loss plan in my opinion. They have an online option for 18 per month.

    If I'm being honest, a little bit of both. Moreso the losing weight, though. Which, I've lost a couple of pounds in the last week or so...so, go me, I guess.

    I feel for you.
    Get yourself on a diet program for a person with type 2 diabetes. Really!!!!
    Don't eat "white"...no potatoes, white rice, white bread. Eat whole grains and read labels. Don't drink that fruitty punch stuff. I think you will be amazed...and very pleased.
    Good luck

    Any loss is so much better than a gain! It always seems to come off much slower than it goes on. Be kind to yourself...but NO food rewards!.

    Hey Drafty, you know what they say about things coming around and going around? Well I would go and have words with Amber, she is here saying she has lost 30 pounds, maybe you found some of it?

    Sorry, had to go there, only joking ladies

    I so wish we could donate fat though, seems like nearly everytime we have one of the "Am I to big for my horse" threads someone pipes up about discrimination against our skinny sisters, who can't put on weight no matter what they eat, well set up a drop off point, I have a whole bunch of it I would willingly gift, don't even need a tax receipt, it is totally free.

    Drafty, I can't stand the bottled kraut from the store. I just made a gallon batch with shredded cabbage, carrots, celery, garlic and no caraway. I can't stay out of it. I was just reading that to help with weight loss one should eat a serving at each meal (their serving meaning 1/4 cup). It's full of probiotics and high in B vitamins. One should consume a bit of the juice as well. If eaten as recommended it will greatly improve gut health. Now my horses get some of the juice as well, even wee dog.
