I joined SANE primarily for my wife, who was in a pre-diabetic situation and gaining weight without any control.
Since discovering SANE, I have more energy for daily affairs. I no longer feel lethargic after eating pizza or bread. Preparing such a large amount of vegetables makes me happy, funny, and in a better mood. And SANE is different from anything that I have tried in the past in that you can eat as much as you want and still lose weight.
The number one piece of advice that I would offer someone who is just embarking on their SANE journey is not to focus on what you can’t have; play with combinations of the food that you can have and be creative.
I read a really great book that spoke about the body depositing overwhelming emotions in a special area that are stored. The body then puts further “dirt” on, often as fats or as real dirt. By the process of losing weight with the SANE program, the old dirt could come up again as layers are removed – including the old ex-overwhelming emotions – with the chance to be felt now and the chance to let them go and heal.
