I just dropped a pound or two...not really trying too hard.
99% vegetarian. Today my son BBQ'd - including some turkey hotdogs (and didn't want to turn it all down) so I had one of those.
Hardly eat any meat and don't feel like I need it ...
Still some Nutribullets...allowing some summer ice cream treats...(Autumn but still up to 95 here a lot of the time.)
Vegeburgers, salads, etc. Cooked up a batch of Aduki beans from scratch. One of my staples the last time I was vegetarian...I am ovo lacto, allowing a few eggs here and there. Some skim mozarella... Non-fat Greek Yogurt with a dab of honey, mango jam or apple butter. I eat peanut butter and grain bread...some white french bread. Main fats are olive oil and coconut oil, sesame. Weakness -bread and butter...
Dropped about 18 pounds, pretty slowly...
Not hard to do this way...
I still have a long way to go...

Wow!  Congrats on the 5-7# weight loss, Barb.   Do you feel it is due to the Magic Bullet/Nutri Bullet and now you're getting lots and lots of fresh fruits and veggies?  I think I may have seen one a friend brought to our "Movie Night" last weekend.  He showed how you just fill it and then push down and it does its thing and then you have a puree like mix.

ilinda thanks for the encouraging words.  :) Yes I do feel like it is mainly the Nutribulet...
Also I've been cutting back just a lot  on the animal fat...actually I cut back a lot.
I went off of pork decades ago...never did feel good when I consumed it...
I don't drink milk but I do allow skim Greek yogurt and skim or low fat cheese...Eggs in some form or another perhaps three times a month.

I'm still hanging in. Down to the weight I was at about eight years ago.
I have a long way to go, yet.

I find that if I include some dairy and legumes such as the easy to cook packs of Madras lentils, I do OK. I am mainly vegetarian... only eat a bite of something when offered...one of my kids cooks it, etc. No pork.
I allow some toast and jams and jellies... less likely to binge on fattening desserts, that way.

One thing I do which is quick and seems to help me with my immune system and weight...even if I'm not juicing fresh.  Granted fresh juicing is best but I like to keep three ingredients around: Cranberry juice, Louisiana Hot Sauce (cayenne) and Diatomaceous earth.
Cranberry juice from the store. I'm not that much of a purist and I find that even cheap cranberry juice with some sugar in it has a lot of good medicinal qualities for me. (Everyone is different.) There are inexpensive kinds which have no high fructose corn syrup...
These three taste good to me.
This past week I took a few doses of this and it is having a detoxifying effect.
My weight dropped a couple pounds.
Overall lost 23 pounds in past year or so...

Wow!  Congratulations--that's about 2 pounds per month.

Curious about the DE.  Off and on I toy with using it.  We bought some for the goats, but it is food grade and acceptable for an organic operation, so I assume that is what you are using--food grade.  Are you using it for a specific purpose, or just because it's "good for us"?  It is reported to be high in minerals, but I'm not sure which, and how many minerals.

ilinda -   thanks for the reply. :) How do the goats like it? My cats seem more peaceful when I smoothe some into their fur especially places they cannot reach very well. Some mixed in their food; nutritional component makes them calmer... I use the DE  - human food grade or perhaps it just said food grade. I have it for a couple of the main uses which are listed for DE. Over all cleansing and detoxifying, for the nutrition, for cardiovascular health and weight loss...skin, etc. 
Although I have been looking into the many uses and success stories about diatomaceous earth I haven't been using it as regularly as I should. Back on it..  Can't consider myself an expert, yet.  I posted a long long list of wonderful success stories. Some people call it Holy Dirt.  Discussions in these Topics: (I see you posted too.) :)

PS We ordered two grades of it last year. Human food grade and regular. It is definitely not the pool type it is for consumption ...Someone posted a caution on not getting the swimming pool type  ::)  but I knew better than to do that.

We have the DE and give the food grade to the cats too.

The other bag we smoothe into their fur, we used to sprinkle it around in the worst of the flea season.  Other pests - seemed to help get rid of them...
Also ants. In the hottest time of summer and the worst of the ant season we did need to put some food out on the front porch. The DE stopped the ants from arriving on the dry cat food.

You had asked in your earlier DE post about how the goats like it?  We use it on the goats the same way you do on the cats, and in fact, I also use it on the cats' fur, carefully rubbing/brushing it in to combat fleas.

On the goats, so far, it has been used for lice, and a few other times when they began itching a lot and I just figured they have the beginning of another louse/lice infestation.  It does work, and I'm always cautious not to inhale it or allow it to be dusted around carelessly as the goats have to breathe too.

I have read numerous accounts that it can be used as a dewormer in many animals, but haven't tried that yet.

Overall, I'm satisfied with it, and plan eventually to try it as food grade assist-type thing for self.

I do remember you had posted a LOT about DE in the past.  It apparently has many, many uses.

ilinda - it's great to read how you use it on your farm.  :)
BTW I really like goats! Such intelligent, talkative and funny creatures. I had given my young "kiddos" raw goat milk for a time when we lived in Topanga Canyon, so CA area. A lady up there sold the raw goat milk.

True - DE is used as a dewormer for animals and humans alike. I am not the expert on exact dose... there is probably a reference somewhere on max dose for goats and other farm animals.

For cats (I must admit haven't done it regularly lately but will get back to it) I mix a small teaspoonful into a plate of cat food or tuna. If it's much more than that not all the cats will eat it. When I have given it to the cats in their food as well, they immediately start to act more peaceful.
Today is the day I need to give the cats some again... It doesn't seem to work as well just sprinkling it on their dry food but they will eat some of it that way...

Anyway - DE does help normalize the weight... This is just an article and site I randomly found online. The company is in Australia. Video on this page.

http://diatomaceousearth.net.au/weight-loss-using-diatomaceous-earth/

Diatomaceous Earth (DE), otherwise known as fossil shell flour, comes with a lot of benefits to our health. It originates from diatoms. Diatoms are basically fossilized exoskeletons of hard shelled algae. The algae can be found in water and are the basic food of aquatic life just like grass is the basic food for most land animals. It has been used for several years to aid in weight loss as well as helping the body get rid of toxins.

Some of the deposits of DE can be found on the earth and take the form of naturally occurring soft, siliceous sedimentary rock. The rock is usually crashed to form a white powder, fossil shell flour. The powder is light and has a slight abrasive feel. The fossil shell flour is safe for human consumption but inhaling it can irritate the lungs, eyes and nostrils. It should therefore be kept in places where it won’t be blown into the air.

What is a Diatomaceous Earth Cleanse?

One of the many benefits and uses of DE is to detoxify and cleanse the body. Every day our bodies are exposed to a number of toxins either through consumption or inhalation. These various toxins feed on nutrients found in our bodies while others slow down our bodily functions especially metabolism.  Through the use of the fossil shell flour, we are able to rid our bodies and the digestive tract of these toxins.

How It Works

Diatomaceous Earth is cylindrically shaped with very sharp edges. These edges are too fine to effect the human body and tissue but shred becteria.  The sharp edges basically scrape away bacteria, virus and parasites that are stuck to the walls of our digestive tract. Once you begin using the supplement, the results will not be instant. The process may take 7, 14 or 30 days before any significant results can start to show. It also depends on how long it has been since you detoxed.

Beginners should consume a teaspoon mixed in a quarter cup of water or juice. It can be taken with food or with a drink. If it is to be taken with a drink, it should be thoroughly stirred to ensure that it is well mixed because the particles tend to settle at the bottom sometimes.

Apart from cleaning the digestive tract a DE detox has a number of benefits to the body. It helps our colons to function better and also makes our digestive system more efficient. This way our digestive tract will be able to absorb more nutrients and transport them throughout the entire body. People who detoxify using this supplement will notice an improved quality of life due to improved overall health.

Weight Loss Using Diatomaceous Earth

There have currently been a lot of fad diets and “magic pills” that promise to help individuals lose weight within the shortest time possible. Although some of the diets and pills work, they are expensive to maintain. Thankfully, there is no need to spend fortunes on these fads just so as to lower the level of cholesterol in your body, relieve bowl dysfunction and constipation, and lower blood pressure.

Diatomaceous Earth has the ability to do all these things including increasing energy levels within the body and helping one lead a youthful life. It is inexpensive to purchase and costs only a fraction of pharmaceutical products for weight loss.

Why It Works

Our bodies produce natural toxins and we inhale or consume others on a day to day basis. Accumulation of these toxins in the body tends to slow down digestion and promotes the production of cholesterol in the body. The toxins are stored in our fat cells and make it very difficult for us to lose weight. Several studies have also linked the accumulation of toxins to weight gain.

These studies found that toxins decrease our body’s ability to burn fat which is why it is important to detoxify. Weight loss using Diatomaceous Earth is possible thanks to its detoxifying effects. It is a natural food additive which is believed to have absorption capabilities thanks to the diatoms found in it. They soak up all the toxins and wastes in your colon and small intestines.

LDL fats and sticky vegetable matter clinging on the walls of your small intestine interfere with nutrient absorption because they reduce the exposure of capillaries and interfere with peristalsis. Peristalsis is the process through which the muscles of your digestive tract contract and relax.

The millions of grains found in fossil shell flour and their sharp edges gently scrap the walls of the intestines to rid them of the toxins. In the process, they gently massage the intestines and remove residuals of heavy metals as well as other debris. The walls are left pink and clean. The massage helps to stimulate the flow of blood which makes the small intestines work more efficiently.

Apart from detoxifying the body so as to help in nutrient absorption, diatomaceous earth has also been known to stimulate metabolism. A slow metabolism leads to high cholesterol build up in the blood. Poor digestion also leads to a rise in blood sugar levels and an increase in fat. Using DE helps the body to function better by improving digestion.

Other Benefits Of DE

Other benefits of taking fossil shell flour include:

1. Reduced appetite

Those that use the product claim that when it is eaten in the morning, it reduces hunger pangs for the rest of the day.

2. Promotes healthy nails, teeth, gums, hair and skin

DE contains a nail and enamel hardening element known as silica which prevents nails from breaking and teeth from decay and cavities. It also helps to prevent baldness and promotes growth of lustrous hair with a healthy shine. It also improves the condition of our skin by fading age spots and improving its elasticity.

3. Helps in tissue regeneration

Our tissues degenerate rapidly as we age. Components found in diatomaceous earth help to slow down the degenerative process by helping them retain moisture. It also helps to relieve some of the skin problems such as bed sores, insect bites, benign skin sores, frost bites, burns, eczema, warts, calluses, acne, boils, abscesses, rashes and persistent itching.

In summary, weight loss using Diatomaceous earth has been reported by people who have used it over a period of time. The results may not be instant but those that regularly use DE report increased energy levels, and improved overall health.
