You talk a lot about your diet but not about exercise. I wonder if there is a clue in there ie that you don't mention it. I would suggest starting to ensure you get plenty of good exercise, start with just walking - and with some sunshine if you... (more)

I'll focus on breakfast, since that seems to be the hardest for people. I have some non-egg breakfast ideas, many on my blog. The hubs won't touch eggs in any form so I have to get creative. As you can see, there are so many things to eat it's... (more)

Do soy allergens end up in eggs of chickens that eat soy-based feed? For that matter, what about wheat gluten? The Tropical Traditions site says this: "Almost all commercial eggs, including those that are organic or marketed as 'Omega 3' eggs,... (more)
