Temporary Suspension of New Recipes


I am about ¼ of the way through a 16 day detox where I skip all alcohol and eat healthier foods including lots of nuts, no sugar and more green vegetables. I wont be posting new recipes for the next two weeks but if anybody wants to see what it takes me to quit alcohol, eat healthier, lose 6-10 pounds, drop inches from my waist and relapse with occasional bad choices, you can follow my actions, ask questions and even criticism my bad choices as I track my daily activities at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Coffeepot-Cooking/388614061149768. I am already down an inch on my belly, and 3 pounds in the first three days and no, I don’t suffer. Tonight is fried chicken thighs and fried seasoned yams. Will be happy to hold even in weight tomorrow but plan on a 6-7 mile walk so I can afford the relapse. Also I have no set goals but somewhere around 172 or a permanent 8 pound loss would be nice.

    Thanks for the encouragement – other than high blood pressure and salt, I have no real diet issues. I cut back on candy because of that blue zone sugar thing. It will take a year off my life when I reach 94. Alcohol will only add half a year, so not worth the effort unless I drink too much than eat too much and get punished twice. So I detox to lose the weight and cut back on stomach girth. I’m too old to reform more than 16 days at a time so I admire you for trying the everyday thing.
