I stopped all carbonated drinks first, I was addicted to Dr. Pepper's no doubt. Then I finally got it in my head to stop eating fried foods of any kind. Kicking candy bars was easy cause they cost too much. When I lived in the city I bicycled but after these changes in diet not much happened. Moved to the country can't bike roads to dangerous. Wound up with high blood pressure somehow, did some self examination of lifestyle. Decided I was getting off this high blood pressure medicine somehow. Next was to kick all salt / sodium which I did no problem. I am very low sodium. Decided if I kicked all caffeine of every type maybe that would fix me, but didn't. I decided bread was my enemy so I have stopped all white fillers of any kind. BOOM - after 3 weeks of being off bread, rice, pasta etc. I was removed off high blood pressure medication. Basically I have a rule if it's not natural food, I don't eat it. Also I stay away from as much grease as I can. Now I eat meat, vegetables of all type, eggs, nuts etc. What's Next? I have one last thing to kick that I am having the hardest time with SUGAR. I don't eat cakes, pies, cookies, etc. very often but I like hot tea (decaf) with refined sugar each day. I drink my coffee black. I am stating all this because after I KICKED BREAD, I felt alive again, I am not hungry at all, I am losing weight without exercise, I am super energetic! I am off my high blood pressure medicine, nothing I tried every worked till I stopped bread.
