This has been proven in various studies many times over. I think they would be surprised. Coffee is another story, hah! I think you can do it pretty easily, especially with all the different types of flour to choose from. These toxic particles irritate respiratory membranes, cause coughing and throat burning, increase the risks of respiratory infections, are carcinogenic, and increase the risk of lung cancer. For me this works, and while it is difficult and I have to say no to foods I love, it is worth it. Also, like you, the changes came gradually. Good snack on occasion, good in salads, nice somewhat sweet mildly and peppery flavor. Basically all salads that call for oil can be omitted. There is an overwhelming amount of misleading studies and news headlines that come out regularly claiming that this or that oil has been associated with some health benefit. I lost weight too.
There was a time when going vegetarian seemed extreme. Going vegan, though … that was different. Too extreme. I could never do it. How will I eat out at a restaurant? What will I tell my friends? Where are the calories going to come from now? And as you know, that turned out just fine too. Olive oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil. Like the previous changes, this one started slowly. A big drizzle of oil a few times around the pan to start cooking a meal became a tablespoon. Before too long, that became a teaspoon or two.
