Good-bye to VeggiePharm blog...and an update from Wilbur!

This is going to be my last regularly scheduled post here at VeggiePharm. I've been having too many complaints about posting comments, too many spammers, and still the strange issue of 100's of fake subscriptions every month. I still don't know what that's all about.

Anyway, I've decided that since I'll be blogging a lot more as I work on my next book, I'll just do it all over at the Potato Hack blog ( I've just recently gotten the rights to the website, and will redirect the url to the potato hack blog, as well. So that will be my home for the foreseeable future. Already I've begun to remodel.

I'll leave VeggiePharm here in case anyone wants to read...there is a ton of good info to be found in the old posts and especially the comments. One of my favorite commenters through the years has been "Wibur." If he wouldn't have popped up when he did, I would have had to invent him. His journey in healing his gut has been remarkable. Unfortunately, Wilbur has been unable to post here and someone recently asked about his status. Wilbur and I email each other now and then and are Facebook friends. Wilbur sent me an email and asked if I could post it in his name. Instead, I decided to put it here for everyone to see.

Weight Maintenance

It's harder than you might think!

     There's a ginormous problem with dieting that nobody talks about. Weight loss is easy compared to keeping it off. Millions of people regularly lose 10-15% of their body weight doing various diet programs, but within a year most have gained nearly all of the weight back and only 5-10% of dieters manage to maintain a 10% weight loss for more than five years.
