Weight: 333lbs (-3) total: 35
Water: 5/7 days above 100oz.
Food: 6/7 under 1900 calories.
Book: FINALLY arrived. Skinny Bitch. It seems a bit extreme in a lot of view points but it's really made me aware of how many chemicals we ingest. I'm about 1/4 the way done with it.

Big Hitters 

- Just like a human, what's consumed by a chicken about to hatch an egg, is passed on through the mother to the baby/egg. We ingest whatever medications and hormones that they've received. In order to avoid it, try buying local at a farmer's market where at private farms they're less likely to use hormones and antibiotics.

- The antibiotics we consume in food affect our reaction to antibiotics when given as a prescription, contributing to your drug resistance.

- Aspartame, as it's broken down, turns into formaldehyde in the body. There are Aspartame Support groups and class action lawsuits happening right now because of the severe negative health effects. (again, sorta extreme, but the formaldehyde thing freaked me out).

- Ph levels in the body fluctuate. The goal is to have a more basal than acidic body. Dairy products and sugars raise the PH level. Cancers thrive in highly acidic environments.

  1. Whoa on the food facts, yikes! Have you watched Food, Inc? Scary stuff.

    Congrats on the loss!! :)

  2. Congrats on the great weight loss! That is so encouraging to see your pictures too. I can tell your stomach is getting smaller.
    Keep it up!
    Thank you for you encouraging comment at my blog!

  3. Love seeing the changes in your before and after pics! Great weight loss this week too!

    I try to buy most of my produce from local farmer's markets and only wild caught fish for many of those reasons. It's costlier sometimes but I think it's worth it in the end.

  4. My eyes did this at the word "formaldehyde": O.O haha Great loss, and a very noticeable difference in those photos!

  5. Great weight loss. Thanks for your supportive comment. Those facts definitely made me think.

  6. Excellent work this week. I totally agree on the artificial sweeteners. I've never been a fan, and now I'll label myself an official hater now that I know about the formaldehyde!! ACK!!

    I am a firm believer about heating whole, REAL foods, without chemical intervention. They taste so much better!

  7. that sounds pretty interesting. I haven't read that book but I keep finding it in book stores. Let us know what you overall think of it. I'm interested in picking it up. You're doing awesome!


  8. Congrats on the loss & I see great progress in the before & after pics! You are doing awesome!! I read that same book and I've watched the Food Inc documentary along with the corn one & a few others, it's some scarey stuff!!
