It's interesting to see how many of us (myself included) see the benefits of MB and yet we aren't completely "devoted" to it. For me, there are three main reasons I'm not 100% yet - 1) availability. Rural Minnesota is not exactly high on non-meat, non-dairy eating habits. :roll: 2) expense. Again, other than 'ordinary' vegetables, things that are "MB approved" are typically much more expensive. 3) I'm not sure what a lot of the different foods are really like, and, coupled with 1 and 2, I hesitate to buy something I don't even know if I'll be able to eat. So I do try, and I experiment when I can, but once in a while I get so tired of the "same old thing" I just eat whatever because I need to eat *something*.

So, have I found enough excuses yet? 8)

What about the rest of you? Are you convinced of MB's benefits, not quite, or not that interested, period? :wink:

I believe in the benefits of MB :!:

I, too, am not completely MB but what changes I have made I can tell a big difference in the way I feel....body AND soul :!:

And those are the 3 main "reasons" ( oh, okay.....excuses..... :wink: ) that I'm not totally MB.....not to mention the fact that I'm not a "whiz" in the kitchen :roll: ..... :? ...... .....yeah, yeah, I know....you can't "catch" a guy if you don't know how to cook ! :wink: .............I'm better at cleaning.... :lol: ... :wink: ...

Default BENEFITS OF MB

I too believe in the benefits of MB but i am not completely MB either.

my excuse is that i love food!! All kinds of foods (Jeez, i apologize if i sound foolish by saying this).

When i first read "Confessions, i was so "gung ho" about changing my eating habits that I incorporated it with my Weight Watchers routine, i have done that and till this day I still do. I have tried a few of the foods that were mentioned and liked them..Leeks have become a favorite with me as well as dandelions (they grow like weeds upstate!!!)
i did manage to cut down on meats and dairy and i eat lots of beans as well.(i know i have mentioned this before, but that book changed my life.)

I have thought about going MB but i am just not ready. This is selfish of me but i am not ready to give up the foods i enjoy--Dont get me wrong, i am not eating ice cream,cookies,chocolates bread so on.. every day, but every once in a while i do "cheat" or what i would like to call "reward" myself.. I know that once i eat something out of the ordinary my stomach feels it right away. i have also controlled my eating habits which is something i never thougt i was able to do.

I have been battling my weight for years and now i am actually trimming down i still have 40 more lbs to lose, but now i am battling exercise,it is my main focus as well as eating right. i would like to attempt MB sometime in my life.. but i need to take one step at a time. I do love to cook!!! whenever i get a chance which is only on the weekends, In the summer i cook alot of veges cause they come from our garden, big huge garden full of peppers, tomatoes, escarole,dandelions,onions,garlic,basil so on...

***Osarella, Christy.. I wish i can take you with me shopping, here in NY we have Whole Foods & Trader Joes
I just love shopping in those stores, sometimes i go to Trader Joes on my lunch hour and pick up all kinds of what i call "Treats" everything organic that is where i buy my seaweed,brown rice so on....you would love it..Maybe if ever you guys are in town, i will take you there.....

**remember to Chew Chew Chew

Geez I think I pulled up something here. Let's forget about it and forget about Gunther Von Hagens (I am NOT a fan of his work). Just one more thing; the bodies he uses are people who voluntarily gave their bodies to him. Besides that, people who smoke like chimneys did stop their habit after seeing the result (black longs).

Sorry for pulling this up here.

Thank you v much Sara.
You've picked some great Dirk quotes for your sig! It's true, 'life' doesn't 'owe' us anything - we just need to be greatful for the 'small mercies' and daily 'laughs' we can get/make.
Best wishes
