Swimming or water aerobics, floor exercises such as yoga/pilates and sit-ups and variations thereof, weight training (with medium-weight barbells, you can keep going longer and make it aerobic).

Just starting this plan and looking forward to getting the ball rolling. I am a breast-cancer survivor (1 year ) and I have had knee surgery (which didn’t fix the problem). I have never been big on exercise, can’t get down on the floor, but I do have an elliptical machine and can use that with my knee. I am not a runner, but I do love the water. Any ideas on low-impact exercises that I can do?

Start with those 25 steps, then add 5 each day or two. In the meantime, work the parts that don’t hurt – arm lifts, stomach crunches, etc. The trick is to start small and slow, add a little every couple of days, rest every other day, etc.

I have just begun! Isn’t this a song title. My main difficulty is exercise. Months ago I was in so much pain with knees and hips I could barely walk. Now am relatively pain free but can barely walk 25 steps before I am out of breath. Any tips on how to begin to rebuild my stamina?

Hi, and welcome. No need to get into the recipes if you don’t want – just go for the whole foods. You will find that there are many dairy-free and gluten-free options.
If you do find a recipe you want to try, but find it contains allergens, please write it here, and I will personalize it for you (and give tips on speeding up preparation).

I am overwhelmed by the cooking necessary. Tomato bake for the after dinner snack? Not going to cook it, I know myself. I am gluten and dairy free which makes substitutions difficult to navigate.I haven’t started.

A couple of suggestions:
1. You can puree the vegetables and hide them in other foods such as muffins, soups, shakes, pasta dishes, stir-fry etc.
2. If you like fruit and don’t have diabetes or high triglycerides, then make the swap.

I really don’t like vegetables. I have always been a picky eater. Help.

Also, for the free vegetables list on this link:; is it allowed to eat from them as much as you want for the entire day any time in the day? because I read this written at the bottom of the menu:
“Click Here for a list of fresh vegetables that are loaded with nutrients and can be eaten as much as you like.”

Thank you.

SWG stands for “sprouted whole grain”. In SWG products, the grain seeds have been allowed to sprout before milling, with makes them more digestible and the nutrients more available to the body.
