Donna - I couldn't find any clear answer on the percentage of body weight a week it's safe to lose. A couple of places said 1%, but they didn't cite any reference to back it up. Participants on The Biggest Loser often lose more than that, so the number must be higher than 1%.

Mike - congrats on your Day 2 loss!

Jenn - make sure you find a doctor like Mern's who understands what various diets can do for different health issues.

Nyda - hope you're feeling better and that all your spinach seeds sprout. I think I'm just going to plant some herbs. I'm lucky - my SIL is a super gardener and grows massive amounts of food, so he supplies us with fresh veggies all summer long.
