week 1 results

We are seeking to optimize our bodies and health, for me that means losing five pounds and clearing my skin. For our son, he needs to gain weight, reducing even more the apnea and cyanosis episodes, and any skill improvements would be icing. From past experience we know that grains/starches and animal products daily or even more than a couple of times a week are not good for him, nor are a lot of kidney shaped beans. Soy is also not his friend.

Here are our week 1 results after following Fuhrman's meal plan:

  •  i lost an inch at my waist and 2 pounds. We didn't even follow day 6, due to the raw potluck and zpizza for dinner. I feel wonderful, energetic, and my face looks really good, the "dairy" rash is almost gone. Cravings are diminishing, especially for fried foods. 
  • our son is jabbering/talking more, no apnea and cyanosis episodes (with the exception of day 6 after eating the zpizza and after the egg on day 7. We aren't sure if it was residual from the grain in the pizza or the animal protein). He gained a pound and his waist increased an 1.5 inches. He is taking alternating steps going down the stairs without tactile or verbal prompting.
I am encouraged for both of us. We would love to know how you are doing as well.
