Weight loss, especially great weight loss, means change. Not just physical change, either; emotional, mental, and relationship changes. These challenges are real and to be taken seriously. Let Maureen explain...
Hello again, Belldon.
My weight today was 251.1.
I want to thank you for your response email yesterday. It was very thorough and full of tons of wisdom that I will reference often. In fact, when I got on the scale this morning, my first though was what is Belldon going to think? Then I caught myself. I chose to take last night off and have some alcohol and pizza. I knew that the scale would reflect my choices this morning. I knew I'd be reporting to you. And I knew my schedule and planned that I'd have a soup day (or two) to make up for it. Then I was fine. I hope I'm not lying to myself that I have "got this". This gain feels different than previous ones because it didn't feel "mindless". And I'm fine today. So I do welcome your input. What's your take?

Can you trust the reports that come from nutrition researchers? Maybe more importantly, can you trust the reports you hear or read in the media about scientific findings in the realm of nutrition? In the midst of a rapidly escalating obesity epidemic and floundering public health, this is a question you need an answer to.

Good morning, Belldon.
My weight today was 261.7. I made a chicken soup yesterday and this may sound funny, but I felt really connected with the process. I enjoyed making it, put a lot of love into it, and it was the best I'd ever made. My husband walked in after a long day and said the house smelled wonderful. He ate soup for dinner with me. I was in shock! I'm glad that when he finally tried it I had a successful soup. I'm hopeful that if I prepare the new recipes with the same love and care, people will choose to eat Nutri-90 with me. I'd especially like to get the kids trying the new meals and I'm hoping they start to prefer healthy food.

It’s all the rage and I’m sure you’ve seen it, read about it or heard someone raving about quinoa (pronounced Keen-wah), but it may surprise you to learn it’s not new at all. This perfect little food is considered an ancient grain. Quinoa is a “perfect protein”, meaning it contains all nine of the amino acids (protein building blocks) not made by the human body itself There are 22 of these building blocks, but the body makes most of them internally. These 9 must come from our food. Many meats, together with dairy and eggs are perfect proteins, but it is rare among plants.

Spring has sprung here in the Pacific Northwest and as the sun shines those cravings for lighter foods have kicked in for some of us. If you’ve been part of the Nutri-90 family for a while you know how much I LOVE salad and that I love to cook. My Mom made everything from scratch and she passed on her love of cooking to me for which I will always be grateful. Our family has some food allergies so one of my favorite things is finding great recipes and adapting them for specific food needs which means occasionally I get to share some of these great concoctions with all of you when I’m able to make a great recipe RFL (rapid fat loss) friendly.

Thanks to this wonderful Nutri-90 lifestyle I have eliminated a lot of “food” from my kitchen including commercial mayonnaise (which can easily be made at home but that’s another story). I have a recipe for chicken salad that I used to love but no longer make because it uses a lot of mayonnaise. BUT-cravings are the mother of RFL inventions! So, it was off to the kitchen for me as I worked to find a way to adapt this recipe to not only be healthy but also fit into Nutri-90's RFL (rapid fat loss) profile.

You know the deal; you eat out and, trying to stay on the healthy side, you order a salad. You ask for your dressing on the side so you won’t overdo it, because that stuff puts more chemical imbalance on a plate than a burger and fries! But when that pile of rabbit food comes to our table….
