Notes

Dr. Ede is one of those amazing women who is as smart as she is warm, funny and engaging. When I asked her to do a cooking video with me, she said, “I’d love to, but I’m not sure I’m the right person. I don’t do recipes.” She went on to explain that she has significant food sensitivities that restrict her diet significantly, but she agreed to send me a list of foods that were safe for her to eat. When I received the one-page food list for Dr. Ede, I’ll admit that I was more than a little intimidated that I could develop a recipe that she could eat and enjoy. When we made the video and she tasted the dish for the first time, both of us nearly cried! She was thrilled that she could eat a recipe, and I was thrilled that she actually enjoyed it. We hope that you enjoy it too!

    I simply can not say enough good things about your website, and, I recommend it every chance I get to everyone who will listen. Why you say? Because everything on this website I have tried works for me. And I am basically a lazy person when it comes to eating my veggies, and generally making the effort to eat well or well for me. I have significant allergies to sugar and anything that turns into sugar in my system in the form of psoriasis and skin dryness etc. I have tried to deny it for most of my life because, why not, sugar tastes good, doesn't it? Anyway, you have made a website that is easy to follow, recipes easy to find and make, and information that is easily understandable and believable from reliable sources, thus making this site, Diet Doctor . com a trustworthy site. I have success in feeling better looking better, because when I follow your program of eating healthy I am losing excess weight without guilt and with encouragement. Thank you DietDoctor. Thank you Judy Bos
