No weight loss so far but I've been eating like there's going to be a famine so it's a wonder I haven't gained any back. It's probably because I still have so much weight to lose. Still doesn't mean I can't make more of an effort the rest of this month.

Default Science articles on carbs, protein types, milk and probiotics

Interesting snippet from Science Daily regarding the amount of carbohydrates and the type of proteins we ingest in our diets compared to lifespan expectation:

https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0817093812.htm

Also on that site, a correlation between milk use at breakfast and lowered blood sugar, which may be useful for treating Type 2 diabetes: https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0820085243.htm

and finally, why using probiotics constantly is bad for you: https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0806095213.htm

I'd add that globally dairy farming (like meat production) is ecologically
a very bad thing (said the milk and cheese-loving horticulturist-in-training), so those of us without diabetes shouldn't go increasing our milk consumption on the basis of the above!

Thanks so much for this video Greco. I sent it to my mother because in our private talks about my switching to an Plant Based Diet, she often asks me how I meet the bodily need for protein because she's got her own ideas about consuming Dairy products and Animal (meat) products or anything that converts into sugar in the blood stream.

My own brothers, all three of them, are diabetics. They don't get how the food choices they've practiced for years has led them toward an diabetic trajectory. And because all three siblings in the video speak about their own experience, it carries lots of weight in helping others to see how important it is when trying to understand the impact of traditional food choices vs the great benefits of consuming food from an Plant Based Food diet.

I didn't switch to an Plant Based Diet for weight loss, although weight loss was an natural consequence of ridding my diet of Dairy and Meat (animal products). At my special medical appt, last Friday, when the nurse recorded my weight, I was so surprised to learn that since March of this year, I've lost nearly 63 pounds. That's roughly an ten pound weight loss each month since early March. I switched to an Plant Based Diet so I wouldn't become Diabetic. Weight loss, as an result of this radical change in foods I consume, was never an objective.

Thanks muchly for the video. I think it will help my mom and all three of my brothers to see the benefits of not consuming Dairy or Meat (animal products), as conveyed by the three siblings featured in the video you posted, Greco.

I promised after I did my main grocery shopping I'd start working on my resolution to only eat meals prepared at home or my with my sons in their homes. Items from the deli section okay but only items to use to make meals not already prepared items. For example deli meats and sliced cheese to take home to make sandwiches with okay. Orange Chicken, jalapeno poppers, corn dogs, Mozzarella sticks and so on in the heater case not okay. I realize there is a lot of food available in stores that is far less healthy than foods served at some restaurants but for me right now it's more about getting in the habit of preparing meals for myself and saving money. I get so much more food, more filling foods and in general healthier food when I don't cave and hit the drive-thru, or just order pizza because it's so much less hassle. Anyhow the month is almost over, I'm surprised how hard it's been. I didn't realize I'd gotten in such a habit of easy food, and one so difficult to break. Since I didn't do my shopping until around the middle of the month I've only been at it for a little over two weeks, but already I'm noticing a difference. I'm eating a lot more, but I'm losing weight more quickly so win win. Plus I just feel a lot better. I need more strips so I can see what if any effect it's having on my blood sugar.
