    • My brother and sister in law decided to give up eating meat, chicken, and dairy. They still eat fish as long as it’s fresh caught. He shared quite a few recipes with me that I’ve made and they‘re very good. I don’t plan to go that drastic with my diet but I have started eating more plant based foods and I feel the difference. Years ago when the book “Fit for Life” came out I followed a strict vegetarian food plan for nearly a year, lost a lot of weight, and was in the best health I’ve ever been in my life. I just don’t want to do anything “all or nothing” at this stage of my life.  

      What are your thoughts on vegetarian living?

    • I think being vegetarian is great if you can fully embrace it and LOVE it. At this stage of my life I don’t want to do anything I hate. I will modify, control, do all things in moderation but not do things I hate.
      I don’t like seafood or fish and I’m not a huge meat eater now. My problem is sugar, too much sugar and cravings for sugar. So I’m just trying to control that without making everyone (myself included) miserable.

    • It would be fairly easy for me as meat is not really a staple of my diet.  Turkey is more of a favorite poultry for me, and I could do without it, but living with two heavy meat eating men, everything is difficult.  I have tried tofu, don’t like that at all.

      The veggies and fruits are easy for me, but giving up dairy would be the biggest problem as I love cheese and prefer eggs as a protein.  Carbs are also not a problem as I eat very small portions.  My mom has been following a very strict diet as she is hovering at the diabetic line...she has cut carbs completely, lost 15 pounds and is way too thin now.  

      What do you think Cynthia?  Is there a better way to control diabetes without eliminating so much?  My mom is 76 and very stubborn.ohhhh

    • Hi Vikki! Great to see you!

      I forgot to mention that my mom will not take any diabetes medication, so she feels controlling the diet is her best route, but her resistance also got very low and she picked up a bad respiratory infection recently.  She has not been sick with a cold in eight years.

    • No, I still like meat and crave for a yummy burger once in a while. However, I have cut down on eating meat since my daughter is a vegetarian. We both love tofu, all veggies, and most of the Morning Star frozen foods. On our birthday my daughter took me to a Thai Vegan restaurant it was excellent!

    • I like my veggies, but I LOVE my  beef.  I do eat quite a few vegetarian meals, but I’ve got to have my red meat at least a few times a week.  I rarely eat chicken or turkey.
