If you've stumbled across this blog, hello and welcome!  My aim is to blog my attempt to lose weight by following the "Quick and Easy Weight Loss" plan laid out by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig in Eat Fat, Lose Fat.  I started learning about traditional foods half-way through my pregnancy with my son (who was born in October '10) and have been working on implementing TF principles into our life.  My husband and I are both ready to go "whole hog" on EFLF (though my husband is considerably less enthusiastic than me!)

People often ask if weight loss is truly possible with a traditional foods approach, because it's so contrary to the teachings of the mainstream "diet dictocrats," as Sally Fallon calls them.  I hope to prove that it IS possible (and enjoyable!)

In the next couple of posts I'll be sharing my history of struggles with food and weight as a precursor to starting EFLF, so stick around.



  1. I can't wait to read about how this goes for you! I'm back on a weight loss plan this year. I lost 58 lbs 2 years ago and then gained it back. So, I know I can do it. I just need to change things up a bit to keep it off this time :-)

  2. Thanks, Jules! I lost 80 pounds (through moderate calorie restriction and exercise) after my 5 year old was born, but sadly I've gained it all back! Good luck to you as well :)

  3. I found you on Mothering and I'm looking forward to reading about your journey :)
