Default A Plant-Based Diet or "Have You Tried The Genesis 1:29 Way?"

Obesity is running rampant in the Black communities of America. I am seeing the issue being addressed by many within our communities. The SAD wasn't really the way for us to eat. It is even destroying the health of the majority now. If it is harming the majority, you KNOW what it has done and is doing to the minority.

As a Black woman who happens to be Jewish, I was looking for a way to help my health as well as keep kosher. What did I discover? The Genesis 1:29 Diet. I just remembered reading this in the Torah and in synagogue. I could not believe that I had overlooked this! Eat as natural as you can. Basically, a vegetarian or plant-based diet. Are there any other Sistas/Brothas/Jewish/non-Jews who are eating this way on FitDay? If so, join in the topic.

Hi, my name is Toni and I also have gone to mostly plant based foods. I am overweight and have been on this type of diet for a month. I have lost 10 pounds(a lot in my stomach) and I feel a lot better and have lots of enery. I do eat some type of fish over once or twice a week. I plan on doing this type of eating for life.

Hi
I am on day 15 eating raw. I eat only uncooked friut and veggies, nuts, seeds, and sprouts. Green smoothies are staple for me. I lost 8 lbs in 12 days, now I am holding steady, not losing and not gaining either. I feel great and really do not miss cooked foods very much at all.
