I've read now two Pritikin principal books (both from my local library) and believe this is the lifestyle change of eating that I need.
It just makes a lot of sense and the life long health benefits are so many. The success stories of people turning life threatening diseases around are very inspirational.

I'm going to explore this a little further, the diet I've been on for the last 5 1/2 weeks if very close.

Some years ago I went on the Pritikin diet and lost a lot of weight. Of course it all went on again later, but I date the onset of my arthritis on being on the Pritikin program. I don't think that taken all fats and oils out of your diet is a good thing as our joint need some lubrication. Jon Gabriel spent time in the Pritikin clinic. If you read his book he explains what happened. I think that Jon has found to solution to all our problems.

You don't take out all oils and fat eating Pritikin.

Anyway different things work for different people. The weight is falling off me and I'm never hungry and I have never felt better in my life. It's not just about your weight, it's about changing your whole eating regime to live longer and hopefully avoid the "plague" like diseases that the west is suffering from our over abundance of foods high in fat.
