I started reading this book "Eating Alive" about how the digestive system is so important and when it goes haywire, you get all kind of symptoms Anyway, one of the theories is that you have to wake up your system in the morning, starting slowly with a veggie juice, a little later a small fruit, and then later on combine your protein and a carb. I did this mainly to try to feel better, and an ADDED benefit is that I lost about 5 lbs in one week! I was shocked! It was really hard for me to do, because I love my carbs like breads and bagels. Haven't felt better yet, but sure was thrilled to lose the little bit of weight. IT is REALLY hard for me to even lose an ounce!
