    I'll have to look for some homemade recipes. I'm up for trying things I don't normally like when prepared in a different way.

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.
    Pretty brave I suggest starting this on a weekend.....
    Btw, caraway takes the bloat out of cabbage......
    Now I wish I could have you try "Filderkraut".....fresh, original....not bottled.....sold straight out of the barrel it's made in.....*dreaming of old times*

    I hear you! I gained 55lbs in 6 months and nothing I did would stop it. I remember eating nothing but veggies and lean meat for two weeks, stepped on the scale and saw I had gained 7 lbs. I was so upset. I think my biggest problem is the house we are living in. I started gaining weight and developed severe stomach issues, and other issues such as missing cycles and such. They thought I had celiacs, pcos and other things. My tests in the end always came back normal.

    Since my last round of tests I have become normalish again, weight has started coming off easier. I do a lot more trekking through snow and hauling hay and bedding pens in winter, but I think that maybe just the fact that now I am out of the house half the week is helping. I changed jobs and moved back in with my parents part time last year.

    I have done everything from body by vi to keeping track of food and doing the calorie counting thing. I have all but eliminated carbs, we occasionally have bread like once a week maybe. Instead of pasta I eat spaghetti squash. Homemade meat sauce with ground venison and fresh veggies. We are cattle farmers, but right now we are short on fat steers running around the place. I try to stay away from corn as we use corn and peas to fatten up livestock, what makes it so good for us?
    So lots of mushrooms, broccoli, peppers, etc. And I always take extra helpings of salad. My willpower is getting better, and my brother usually makes sure anything that isn't good for me is gone before I get back from work!

    Deserthorsewoman - I'd never heard of Filderkraut until you mentioned it. I've never seen that type of cabbage before, a summer cabbage. I like a few caraway, not a bunch in my kraut.

    The Fildern, which translates to "fields", is an area near Stuttgart, famous for it's Sauerkraut. When you live in that area, you'll get the fresh kraut when it's in season, of course.
    And let me assure you, there's nothing like it in cans or in a glass

    Caraway.....little goes a long way

    Hi! I'm 230 and just can't get the desire up to lose it. I've been trying to go vegan and have been doing pretty good. I finally tossed the scale to the back of the closet. That felt great! I'm just going to try to eat healthy whenever I can. So, here is my advice for you. Don't change what you're doing all at once. Start eliminating one thing at a time. I'd start with eliminating the potatoes at breakfast because the eggs and bacon are zero carbs and you can lose weight. Remember that you shouldn't eat starches and meat together. Eat one or the other, but not both. Night eating is the worst for overweight people. I eat one thing after dinner and I gain 3 lbs!! So start with the potatoes, don't change anything else and weigh yourself before you do it and then don't weigh for a week or two. If you've lost just keep doing that one thing until you stop losing. Then elminate or cut down on another. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Corn is a grain, not a vegetable. Don't make that mistake. I did and it played havoc with my blood sugar and quickly put the pounds on. Corn is high in sugar, starch and calories and low in any nutritional value.

    Corn, or a form or corn (fructuose corn syrup, corn starch, corn derivatives) are in almost all pre packaged foods because it's a cheap filler and preservative. It's in diet drinks, it's even in jello for pete's sake.

    So if you're making your own meals from scratch, you still have to read the labels of the ingredients.

    Perhaps too much sugar is your enemy. Excess sugar that the body doesn't burn off is stored as fat, primarily around your middle, giving you that "apple" look.

    A short google search showed this:

    Here is a list of some of the possible code words for “sugar” which may appear on a label. Hint: the words “syrup”, “sweetener”, and anything ending in “ose” can usually be assumed to be “sugar”. If the label says “no added sugars”, it should not contain any of the following, although the food could contain naturally-occurring sugars (such as lactose in milk).
    • Agage Nectar
    • Barley Malt Syrup
    • Corn sweetener
    • Corn syrup, or corn syrup solids
    • Dehydrated Cane Juice
    • Dextrin
    • Dextrose
    • Fructose
    • Fruit juice concentrate
    • Glucose
    • High-fructose corn syrup
    • Honey
    • Invert sugar
    • Lactose
    • Maltodextrin
    • Malt syrup
    • Maltose
    • Maple syrup
    • Molasses
    • Raw sugar
    • Rice Syrup
    • Saccharose
    • Sorghum or sorghum syrup
    • Sucrose
    • Syrup
    • Treacle
    • Turbinado Sugar
    • Xylose
    Sugar alcohols are just as bad. Take it from a diabetic (and pray you never develop diabetes)

    In highschool my son's health class had volunteers eat one thing all week. My son was given potatoes. He could eat all he wanted, boiled, baked, fried but no ketchup or gravy. He went thro a 20lb bag and more and lost 5 lbs.

    Some stuff I have read I have found rather interesting. When I spoke to my doctor recently he said basically cut out suger. He was saying exercise will help with fitness but doesn't necessarily massively help with weight loss as it is more about your diet.

    What I mostly remember being told was cut suger which also means cutting carbs.

    - don't go overboard with meat
    - have little to no stuff like bread, pasta, rice, potatoes
    - don't go overboard with fruit so about 2 handfuls a day
    - most of your diet needs to be coloured vegies eg. Carrots, broccoli, beans etc
    - of course cut out junk food or at least have it in moderation

    Obviously you wouldn't go crazy about it straight away but just slwoly cut things down or out. I have been doing it for a couple of months and within the first month I lost about 4kg, I have gained most of that back as I had a few bad moments. I am also finding though I have seemingly gained all of that back I feel and look more toned then chubby. Though I had a few moments at the beginning I am finding it increasinly easier to make the better decision, I mean after all I'm just eating the way I should be.
