90 Salads in 90 Days

The writer challenged herself to eat 90 salads in 90 days. Before that she was a vegetable-phobe.

She didn't lose any weight but she went from a couch slug to: "Then, a second little miracle. In the first month -- actually, in the first couple weeks, I noticed a remarkable physiological change: my energy levels shot through the roof. No longer did I feel like Rip Van Winkle after every meal; food coma wasn't mandatory anymore. Weirdly, I also started to crave a lot more fruits and other types of veggies that weren't part of my crazy commitment, and wanted far less in the way of sugar and carbs. (Perhaps the diet guru did know what he was talking about.) "

So if she would just divert some of that new extra energy to exercise (and cut out more of the carbs, meat, etc) she may actually lose weight.

But it's a start, and that's what's important.
