From Kathy:

"I started this program as a diet - needing to lose a significant amount of weight. Instead I have discovered a way of life. I no longer crave unhealthy foods and when I am traveling I find I can't wait to get home and cook up a big batch of healthy vegetables. It is possible to travel every week and remain true to the principals of the program - yes it takes extra planning and packing, it takes commitment to finding restaurants that will honor your preferences, but it is doable! I travel almost every week all around North America and have discovered enough restaurants that will work with me. If I can't find one, I rely on the avocado, pumpkin seeds and Lydia's cereal that I take from home to get me through. The LoveLife Method"

*Update March 6th, 2013:
I also wanted to tell you two great things about my health - I took myself off cholesterol meds last fall and was just retested and have no need to go back on meds!  Secondly my cardiologist told me that I have successfully reversed the thickening of my heart wall that was there when he first started treating me 5 years ago. He said the combination of the eating, exercise and controlling my blood pressure has made me younger :) Thanks again for helping to change my life - I am slowly getting my husband on board too. I am in town this week so we are doing a veggie reset week together!" -  Kathy
