Dr. Christiane Northrup's ideas on diet

Cynthia, Racer, Ania --

This week I was watching Dr. Christiane Northrup on
PBS (begging week). I have seen her lectures before
and have been very impressed with what she has
to say. She links weight, hormones, appetite and
mind set with insulin and the kinds of foods you

The first thing she advises is get rid of the
following things out of your diet:

1) Sugar
2) Aspartame (the sweetner in diet drinks, and the
"blue sweetner packets")
3) Caffeine
4) "white" foods (instant rice, pastas, ice cream,
potatoes and the like).

Since I got my first paycheck this week, the first
thing I did was go to the grocery and begin buying
natural stuff, colorful vegetables and fruit,
good cuts of meat.

Between the loss of appetite and avoiding the "white
foods", perhaps I'll get a handle on the weight
thing. Plus, I'm not on the Effexor anymore.

I also was a taking a high-progesterone birth control
pill to help with endometrosis pain, which put
between 4 and 5 lbs. a month on me for four months.

Oh, it just pisses me off that medicines can affect
and intensify a life-long problem and struggle, in
order to take care of the other chemical imbalances.

Heck, maybe all of us should start our own bulletin
board discussing medicines, diets and eating disorders.
