Thanks so much for all the good advice. I am trying the alkaline diet. I have bought alot of good veggies and fruit, i even had the millet for breakfast with strawberries and bananas, didn't love it - but I didn't feel worse for it too!, that's a good thing. And I believe you are right, have to do things that make me happy, it's very important. As for the chicken, turkey and fish - I will poach whatever fish I eat and I'm gonna try and stay away from the chicken and turkey. And Butter, thanks I didn't even think of staying away from that, so addicted to butter.
It's a good start. I really, really appreciate your help as well as Danie's.
