Hello and welcome to my SparkPage. I'm a Nutritarian, which means I eat based on nutrition. If you haven't read Dr. Joel Fuhrman's book 'Eat to Live' I suggest you pick it up. He has other books that might be helpful if you have diabetes, heart disease and other conditions.
I don't eat any animal products, processed foods, salts, sugar, and oils. I plan each meal and use the cronometer.com to track my foods to make sure I get my required nutrition.

A Native American elder once described his own inner struggles in this manner: "Inside of me there are two dogs. One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights the good dog all the time." When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, "The one I feed the most."
