This makes sense.  So, is it OK to eat whole grain cereal (flaked
oatmeal, for example) on the Maximum Weight Loss Plan?

I avoid all white flours because I know all of Mother Nature's goodness
has been processed out.  I buy stone-ground whole wheat flour for when I
DO make bread; the kind I buy still has little pieces of bran in it!

Mike R, thanks for the suggestions on business lunches.  Although I
don't go on any, I will be going to an extended family reunion next
weekend, and I needed suggestions on how to deal with people.  I have
McDougall soup cups, hot cereal cups, and Kashi all ready to take with

Sheri, eating squash, squash, and more squash
