Barbara, how good is your self-control? This really works but you really haveve to have good self-control for it to work. I really understand this thing about "craving stupid fatty substances and lots of them". It can almost be like an addiction in itself. But if you can empty your house of fatty foods for a month, your taste buds will change & the cravings will go. If you fall back into eating fatty foods, the cravings jump right back.

I don't know how hard this is for you to do. If you have to feed a household & they like fatty foods, it's tough. But if you're alone or in charge of the food, empty your fridge & cupboards of butter, margarine, crackers, cookies, sausages, bacon, etc. You get the idea. If you can go a month without eating fatty foods, the cravings go right down. You have to be creative in coming up with ideas of making foods good tasting & moist still. After the first week, you'll want fatty foods so bad you'll be ready to eat a pound of butter straight, but resist the urge to indulge yourself.

Because we're older, not young slips any more, you won't see the extra weight melt off like ads tell you, but you will start to lose weight. Most of the extra calories we consume comes from fats. As long as you don't go overboard on sugary foods, you should notice a difference after a month & more further down the road.

For me, as long as I avoid fatty foods & keep active, I can stay slim. If I get careless in either area, I'll gain. I never did when young,m but I can now & don't want to look like my dear Mom. As she says, an apple on two toothpicks. :-)

I hope you don't consider this presumptous, but keeping fats to a minimum does work. I'd add fatty acid supplements though.
