Frenchhen, great to see you so committed to making this YOUR week. That's surely a good example for the rest of us. Thanks for the book recommendation and tip on the processed foods. I haven't read the New Glucose Revolution but I do have Atkins Diabetes Revolution which cautions us against processed foods. I cook mostly from scratch and avoid sodium nitrite and nitrate as much as possible, but yes, there is room for improvement on processed foods. This new diet should help me curb processed foods even more since the fat is a tight restriction for me. Kudos on being only 5 lbs. from goal!
