Accountability, Part 2 and Double Chocolate Banana Soft Serve

Are you really, truly serious about losing weight? If so, Beck's advice on Day 6 needs to be taken very seriously (as serious as the heart attacks we are trying to prevent and reverse, Dr. Esselstyn!).

There are many ways to go about finding this accountability, and one way that I found works well for me is to find a small group of people who check in with each other daily and list out what they have eaten (the good, the bad, the ugly). It works like magic. Seriously.

If you take it seriously.

It casts a spell over you that strengthens your resistence muscle. If you commit to 100% honesty.

I know what you are thinking. It's so worth it. You'll thank me when you are at a healthy weight.

If you are struggling with a sugar addiction, here's a recipe to pay particular attention to.
Banana soft serve defies all explanation. One could argue that it is the saving grace of the Plant-based epicurean world. I for one know that if there were not a replacement for soft serve ice cream, I just couldn't commit. Little do most people know, what we're eating is better.
