  • Recently, we saw a brief blurb on ABC news that indicated that obesity rates in America, as well as globally, are continuing to rise. It looks like we’re on track to have 86% of all adults in America categorized as overweight or obese by 2030 – with related health care costs very close to $1 […]

    Some people want to lose weight, so they become vegan. Weight loss is possible. When Jane and I started on our vegan journey, we both effortlessly lost weight. I dropped twenty pounds in 5 months, and she lost 11. These numbers may not be staggering, but we didn’t do anything else. We simply went from […]

  • For the last few years, it seems that “the obesity epidemic” has been one of those hot topic issues. You read about it everywhere and hear about it on the news with some regularity. And now that it’s January again, it seems like you hear something new every day. I guess it’s not so surprising […]

  • Today is our 4 month anniversary – we started following a vegan diet on 7/7/7 (a most auspicious date). Today was also the day of my annual check up. Jane and I have been eagerly awaiting today as a day of validation. We have been operating under the assumption that when I got back my […]

  • First off, let me apologize to anyone I may have offended with that statement, but when I was growing up in New York it was common “knowledge” that British Cuisine was an oxymoron. Bangers and Mash, Salisbury steak, Toad-in-the-Hole, Steak and Kidney Pie; none of these are particularly appealing to me, and so I had […]

    Today is our 3-month Vegan Anniversary. We started this journey on 07/07/07. It’s been an interesting journey. To date, I’ve lost 15 pounds without any other attempts at losing weight. That’s right – no exercise. Jane’s lost 5 pounds. That’s really exciting. We’re not thinking about what we’re putting in our mouths from a “diet” […]

  • That’s 14 pounds, gone without really trying. Sometime in June Jane, my wife, decided we were going vegan. Since we’re not billionaires, we decided that we’d finish off all the animal product in the house first. We also had a trip planned for the end of June, and didn’t want to start our new lifestyle […]

  • As I mentioned in my last post. My wife is making us over as vegans. She’s got every disease known to mankind in her gene pool and we’re hitting our middle-aged stride. There’s breast cancer, colon cancer, brain cancer, bone cancer and now liver cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, etc. So, even though we’re both […]
