    Good info. I use a website called Fooducate. They analyze and grade the nutritional value of foods and beverages. It is surprising how many products that are marketed and labelled as if they are healthy, which are not healthy at all. I cannot post the link, because of my "new poster" status. But, its a very good resource I'd like to share.

    Me too. I revamped my eating habits this past November. I have been studying Vegan Macrobiotics. Learning the damaging effects of the typical American diet has made it easier for me to make the changes I have made. I have not perfected it yet. I probably never will. I aim for progress, not perfection.

    But, generally, I don't eat sugar, processed foods, meat, or poultry. I do eat white fish twice a week. And, I eat fruit for dessert or special occasions. Losing weight was one benefit, but the biggest gift was that I feel so much better. I didn't think I would be able to do this. But after one week, I started feeling so good. After two weeks I felt even greater. And every time I have "cheated" there has been a remarkable icyness in the way I have felt that lasts a couple of days.

    Recently, I have made it a point to drink 8 glasses of Sparkletts water a day. And, I have found that when I "cheat", the drinks I used to enjoy taste far too sweet for my tastes now, I don't enjoy them anymore. I do add the juice from an organic lemon to my first glasses of the day, for detoxification.
