I never touched overt fats (durians not counted, right?) since I boarded the 811 wagon :) I don't know if I'll feel any difference if I take in overt fats, and don't intend to anyway.
I have just started going overt-fat free a week ago myself.
I plan to keep doing it all summer and maybe go back to some fat in the winter,
with some raw vegan nutella :)
I have serious issues with fat that cause me super painful migraines
so hopefully this will help me.
So far zero craving :)
I still crave bread more than anything but less and less, the more fruit i eat :)
Mcdougall recommends a overt-free vegan diet.
Its not about one food, but about proportions. So, if you wanna go overt free is up to your food choices or up to what have being eating in the last few months.
I'm pretty new to this and have only just finished reading the book, but right now I'm eating more fat than ever and feeling TERRIBLE! (way too many social gatherings and "special oocasions" because I'm leaving the country in a weeks time)
I'm glad you posted this up - some motivation here to change my ways. I'm looking forward to jumping on the fruit wagon. should be dead easy to do in south america. can't wait :)
I'm fairly new to this (couple of months) but have definitely noticed that overts negatively impact my energy, the way I feel, and also make my skin break out. I do absolutely love avocado, but I don't have the discipline to just have a quarter of one in a salad so I always end up eating too much of it. It's far easier to just do away with it altogether. So far I've got no plans to eat any overts in the future. I definitely feel best without them. I'm glad to be doing HCRV as it totally wipes out food cravings as long as you eat enough fruity calories.
I actually work in a hotel kitchen at the moment and I am surrounded by SAD food. You'd think that such an environment would make it hard to stick to a 'different' diet, but I can be surrounded by cooked pasta sauces and other stuff that totally enslaves most peoples senses and it all just smells like dishwater to me!
