Good luck to every one on their weight loss journeys!!
Congratulations on your 30 pounds. I can't wait until I can say the same!
I started from a high of 285 pounds and am down to 258.2 my lowest before starting to eat junk food and regaining to 268 was 249.2. I have a few different things you may want to read/listen to. Its actually quite a bit but I think if you do it'll help considerably.
List of Good Health Websites Shortened for ease of use.
The last link is a link to a site called the Paleo Physicians network if your looking for a good doctor focused on health and healing its a good place to go...though the list isn't that big yet. Its not as profitable to heal people as it is to place them on a pill and than another and another. They do have things they will want you to take to heal you, but everything has focus of dealing with your issues not just treating a symptom but treating causes.
Sorry for the big post I know its a ton of info hope someone finds it useful. All the links may not apply to everyone as there is one that talks about dealing with RA. I found that for a coworker dealing with RA whose in her 60s.
The second link is a set of blog posts by Jack Kruse a neurosurgeon who blogs on many important health topics and the following are the ones you should start with. The following are actually links too I forgot you can click directly on them I printed this out for a coworker so the links didn't work.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
