BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES ARE HERE !!!!!!!!!

THEY'RE HERE!!!! I 've posted photo's taken from summer 2007 when I first began the Martha's Vineyard Diet Detox, weighing in at 202 pounds. I have also included the new and improved "47 pound lighter" pictures to show what MVDD can and will do for you if you persevere. (See Blog Archive Dates 9/15/07)
My goal weight is 135 and on September 23, 2007 I weighed 152. As soon as I reach my goal weight I will post my final "Job accomplished" photo.
My effort to lose weight will have been accomplished but I will continue practicing the MVDD for my health, the rest of my life.
Hope and Healing to all who go here.....

SUPER HEALTHY...SUPER TASTY.....SALAD DRESSING
Say "Goodbye" to Blue Cheese, Ranch, 1000 Island, French,
Green Goddess, and Ceasar Dressings! You won't even miss them after trying this Tangy, Tasty Topper.
Use a small leak proof jar with a twist on lid so you can "Shake it and Take it" for those timeswhen you go out to eat and want to order a salad.
1/2 cup Flax oil or EVOO
1/4 cup Braggs Liquid Aminos
1/2 tsp. (opt) Garlic powder or 1 crushed clove fresh garlic
(herbs of your choosing or.....not. It tastes great even without adding herbs.) If you like it warm or even spicy, then add a pinch of Cayenne pepper.
Don't forget to "GO NUTS"! Bring with you Almonds, Cashews, Pecans, Pumpkin seeds.

YES!!! You CAN add Pecorino Romano Cheese or Feta cheese. These are wonderful on any salad and they are made from sheep and goat milk, not cows milk making them more digestable for people who are lactose intolerant.
