Yay!! I’ve lost 25.6 pounds total so far with 54.4 pounds to go to reach my goal! My BMI has dropped from 36.9 to 33.1 and my goal BMI is 24.9.

Removing Toxins From Your Kitchen
With more than 100,000 chemicals out there, and very few of them studied, we’ll soon see a lot of research about how damaging these are.
In the meantime, protect yourself in the kitchen.
NO: Chlorinated white paper towels
The EPA found that dioxins, byproducts of chlorine, are 300,000 times more carcinogenic than DDT; they’re also very estrogenic.
YES: Chlorine-free paper products
Use products – toilet paper included – that say they are processed chlorine-free, or PCF.
NO: Bleached coffee filters
Bleached coffee filters leach chlorine into your coffee and release dioxins with every drip.
YES: Unbleached or oxygen-bleached filters
These use chlorine dioxide, a type of bleach that doesn’t create dioxin residues.
NO: “Antibacterial” dish soap (or anything!)
In addition to helping create antibiotic resistance, when triclosan combines with chlorinated tap water, it creates the carcinogenic gas chloroform and chlorinated dioxins, a highly toxic form of dioxin.
YES: Natural soaps
Choose dish soaps without chlorine or phosphates.
Good brands include Shaklee, Seventh Generation, Ecover, and Mrs. Meyer’s.
NO: Teflon pans
A chemical in Teflon likely damages the liver and thyroid and impairs the immune system.
YES: Iron, porcelain-coated, stainless steel, or glass pans
Get added iron as you avoid endocrine and immune-system damage.
Keep the dishwasher closed
Don’t open your dishwasher door during the wash cycle.
That “whoosh” of steam releases toxic volatized chlorine from the combination of detergent and tap water.
