This is amazing! She appears 20 years younger. I've ordered the book and can't wait to get started. I think I'll take some before shots like Emily did. Thank you for sharing.

This is a startling transformation. Not only does
she look much healthier, she also looks much happier. Congratulations, Emily! You're an inspiration to all
of us.

Hi Gerry

Her last photo looks like it was taken at university or something like that, years prior.

Incredible transformation.

Hi Emily, I am wanting guidance on getting through the deep rooted bad habits so I can have success in my transformation. Do I just need to "force" the good food in for a couple of days and it will help change the physiology and make it easier to stick to or is it all mental? Any guidance would be great.

Hi Leslie,

You need to commit to eating the greens at the beginning before your tastebuds ever change to "liking" them. (and believe me, eventually you will!!!)

Get the phytochemicals and micronutrients in you. Your body is most likely severely malnourished if you have deep rooted "bad habits", so all the more you need to eat excellent nourishment.

As you nourish your body, the cravings for bad stuff will subside, and then eventually go away.

Re-read the chapters in Eat for Health on toxic hunger and cravings vs true hunger. You MUST get through the addictive cravings if you want to get free and get your health back!

Cheering for you!

Go girl! You CAN do it!

Absolutely stunning transformation! You don't even look like the other person. You are an inspiration.

On your website you don't say much about whether exercise was a big part of your weight-loss (other than the pictures of you running at the end). Did you incorporate exercise from the beginning or was all of your weight-loss and getting healty due to changing your eating habits?

Emily...I could watch this transformation every day and still get inspired.
Thank you!

Emily, are you related to Doug Taylor, the Habitat Director from Haiti???

Trying hard to figure this out. I had gastric bypass in 2000. The food is so bulky that I am having trouble eating enough. I make a super soup with highest micronutrient veggies and beans and cashews and micro salads. I have trouble with many fruits and can't do juicing because of dumping and reactive hypoglycemia. My Dr. Says to stop losing weight but I'm continuing to lose because I can't seem to eat enough. So far I haven't found any blogs of others doing the nutritarian diet after bypass surgery. If you have any advice I would love to hear from you! Thank you, Pam Smith
