I got this email yesterday from my darling friend:

Hi Robin! 
I just had to write and say:  um...not eating sugar is the best thing that ever happened to me.  I have lost 11.5 lbs in 3 weeks. (Ryan said last Saturday "Where was this no-sugar diet 5 years ago?  We could've had a lot less tears if you'd figured this out then.")   I feel great.  It's not even that hard.  Like, not eating sugar is hard 30 minutes a day, and the rest of the 23 1/2 hours I feel awesome because 1)I am not cycling through sugar highs and lows 2) I'm feeling full because I don't waste calories on a nutritionally purposeless food 3) I've got self-control.  I've cut back on dairy a little, and upped my veg/fruit servings to 9 per day (Thanks to green smoothies which I'm addicted to).  So what do you think?  Is it just all about the sugar?
Thanks for starting a revolution in your little blog world...

See? It really does work. And like Jessica said: "It's not even that hard".

What I ate for Breakfast today:

  • Green Smoothie (duh)
  • Oatmeal with blueberries 
  • 1 bowl of this soup
  • 1 toasted pita (dipped into the soup)
  • 1 banana with p-nut butter 

and finally, I was satisfied. I was hungry this morning! Really hungry!

What I ate? Green smoothie, whole wheat pancake with natural peanut butter and sugar free syrup.

I feel pretty healthy if I'm featured on THIS blog. :)
