Can I use something like the Virgin Diet as a kickstarter to a healthier, more balanced eating lifestyle (like mediterranean diet).
I am a 45 yr old black man. I am about 40 lbs over BMI median. I have hyperaldosterone related hypertension and am pre-diabetic. My wife, who has loosely followed Blood-type diet for over a decade, wants to start the Virgin Diet.
I know from self exam and some therapy that my weight gain is a result of sedentary life and emotional eating/depression.View Thread
I appreciate that but I think need help with accountability more than diet. Like I said above we eat healthily. Unlike me, My wife believes we need more than just portion control. I hope if we can get the ball rolling with this we can modify into a more reasonable eating lifestyle based on the seasonal/local/mostly plant/mostly whole grain diet we already follow.View Thread
