For me, one of the most frustrating aspects of aging has been the physical changes to my appearance. Funny thing is, the laugh lines, crows feet, and even the wrinkles on my face don’t bother me much. What does, however, are the lumps, bumps, and odd rolls of excess fat that seem to materialize a bit at a time with each passing year. That has been coupled with a modest weight gain which my doctor said was fine, and actually a good thing.
Not satisfied that this was just the way it was, I went on a quest to find out what was really happening to my body and what I can do about it. The bottom line is this: although my diet was good and in fact, more healthy than most, it was still accumulating toxins that were preventing my digestive system from working at maximum efficiency. I needed to make a change, so I did some research, and set on a course to both look and feel better.
In this article, I describe how I lost tens pounds while experiencing an abundance of energy and feeling downright good about myself. My secret was cabbage soup, lots of water, and the elimination of white stuff, including bread, sugar, rice, noodles, and other starches.
