Really really wanna be part of this class!
Since your post about the books, I´ve read Tim´s and started his diet a week ago.
Really need some inspiration to recipes that will make it all more interesting… It´s hard to keep eating exactly the same things when you love food and cooking!

I NEED help! Aliens have taken my body so I no longer recognize myself. I used to have firm body, now I have dropping parts and wrinkles. Alone with this came a some extra weight and a bigger waist. This can not be me!

I used to be able to say no to food, but the aliens turned off my NO switch. I could skip a meal and drop a pound. They took that when they changed my metabolism button.

I believe these aliens go by the name of AGING. I feel they can be beaten which is why I am writing to ask your help! Any and all help so appreciated and I will happily do my part in defeating The Aliens!

I would love to win a place in your course! I have lost controll of my eating, managing to stay on a diet and loosing weight 5 years ago left me feeling so good (I managed to get to 59 kg from 80,5), but now I have regained more than half of it. Working full time in a rather frustrating situation, most of my eating is emotional eating or buying fast food because I am exhausted. I love the idea of just 5 ingredients and have already tried some of your receipes.

I proclaimed 2011 to be my year of Winning the War Against Obesity! I have been battling my weight all of my life and I’m tired of being on the losing end. One way or another I’m going to win this battle. Hopefully this class will help!!

Ashley R. February 12, 2011 at 2:39 am

I would love love love to win.

At the beginning of 2010 (eek… a year ago!) I found myself 30lbs heavier than I had ever been in my life. Only three months earlier I was celebrating the happiest period of my life; I ended a terrible relationship, quit smoking, met the love of my life and started two medications to help me deal with ailments that had been tearing me apart for years. Things were, and are, great.

But now I’m thirty pounds heavier. I feel like my body and I don’t know one another. My clothes don’t fit, I struggle to do simple tasks and my once active life style is becoming harder and harder to maintain.

I’d love to win to help me kick start the end to this terrible routine.

xoxo

Would love to be a part of this course for two reasons, one practical and predictable, and one hopelessly nerdy. First, the practical and predictable one: I am part of a gluten-free household; this transition has meant a crash course in cooking in general as well as in cooking clean, simple, healthy meals. We’ve been GF for about 3 years now and I’m sick of our “tried and true” recipes. I need new ideas and techniques!

And now for the hopelessly nerdy part: I’m also a researcher and educator thinking about how digital media and technology can reach and teach in ways we’ve never imagined before. This course (and your work in general) seems like a great example of a new kind of adult learning mechanism, and I’d love to see it in action!

Rebeca February 12, 2011 at 4:12 am

I’ve been struggling with my weight for years. I’ve finally battled and defeated an eating disorder but am still struggling with finding a balance between eating (and not bingeing/purging), losing the extra weight but not getting obsessed and sick again.

Louise February 12, 2011 at 5:19 am

While many people like to blame their evil twin, I actually have one. She’s crawled into my body with me which is why I need pants that are big enough to fit two people. I really do hate her and wish she would get the hell out of my pants so I could get some smaller, tighter ones to be sure she won’t come back. What’s worse is that she likes chips (crisps) and tacos and McDonald’s and fries and doesn’t really like fruit or veggies because they’re not salty or starchy. Needless to say, she’s really cramping my style which is naturally more low-cut than muu-muu.

Emily February 12, 2011 at 6:22 am

I would really love to win because I don’t feel like I’m my best self right now. Gaining weight has not only made me feel a little pudgy but it has really thrown off my self esteem and positivity. When those two things go out the window it’s really hard to try to function. With the added stress of my new job, and the fact that I am currently trying to renovate my house with almost no money, I really need a pick me up, and some motivation that I can regain my waste line.

I think that I would be a great candidate for your program. I’m totally behind your ideas, the 5 ingredient cooking has saved my life! It’s so much fun to see the new things you have on your blog and watching you cook is like a little cooking show I can watch right here at my desk. I especially loved your ice cream tutorial, how fun! (and mine was sooo yummy) Anyways, pick me, a fellow artist, cook, and simple person.

Kristi February 12, 2011 at 10:15 am

I could really use a class like this. Being 30ish with a 3 year old I’ve looked for simplicity when it comes to cooking but all of that simplicity came in the form of boxes, bags, drive-thru’s, and freezer cartons. I used to be able to eat like that and maintain somewhat of a waistline but as I’ve aged and birthed a big baby my waistline hasn’t done anything but round out to what I now understand to be a spare tire. I’d love to reclaim my waistline in a way that’s good for not only me but for my family as well! And simple recipies are that much better since I’m the only cook and my kid still likes to eat simple, single items.

On a side note, I was just turned on to your blog today when I had your warm chickpea salad at my sisters house and it was so simple and so delicious!

Balu February 12, 2011 at 1:23 pm

I don’t even know if I have a waistline anymore… I’m 36 and my last “weigh in” was on sunday about a week ago – it was 144 kg.

I’ve tried diets that are similar to the ones you are describing – basically reducing fat and switching from (slow) carbohydrates to protein during the day. With the result that in the evening you try to go for high protein and no carbohydrates. And of course add some sport to that ;-).

The problem is that I keep falling of the wagon, because after a while finding interesting recipes get’s difficult and somehow the time I want to spend cooking a dish after coming home from work decreases week by week after the initial “yay, weightloss time”. Your cooking class seems to provide a solution for this :-).

What other reasons might I have to get chosen as one of the winners? I’m a man! And if I go through the comments it seems that only a few of those are interested.

So I’d be happy to prove that men not only like to follow recipes and cook, but that we are in fact able to admit the need to lose weight, maintain a diet and cook for ourselves.

Amy Vonk February 12, 2011 at 2:11 pm

I just discovered your blog via the Zen Habits website and today I’m going to try your broccoli tuna recipe.

I love your concept of healthy meals with only 5 ingredients. I once had a cookbook that used only 3 or 4 ingredients but the meals weren’t very healthy and there was too much prep involved.

You have a recipe on the Zen Habits blog – the oatmeal with blueberries and brazil nuts – had that today and loved it. No sweetener needed with the addition of the blueberries. Just realized I forgot the cinnamon though – will add that tomorrow!

Hayley February 12, 2011 at 5:07 pm

Jules, I’d love to win a place in your ‘reclaim your waistline’ cookery class because the concepts and ideas that you have spoken about in the video share a lot of similarities to the Primal way of eating, which is something I have become really interested in. The problem is that I don’t know where to begin, and I think that your class would be a great starting point. Thanks!

Lyn February 12, 2011 at 6:25 pm

Wow, there are some pretty powerful messages here!

I would love to win a spot in your virtual cooking class for many reasons: Recently, I split with my partner of seven years. This lead to moving house (twice), deferring uni and basically not coping too well with life. Being depressed and anxious about my new situation also contributed to adrenal fatigue.

Now living on my own I am getting used to life again as well as being on a single, part-time wage. I am also juggling uni / student placement / volunteer work and my part-time day job. All this whilst trying to conserve my energy and manage my stress!

A free place on your course would be financially fantastic and emotionally rewarding: I am a foodie at heart and my recent health concerns have reminded me of the importance of eating right and getting back to basics. This includes going back to my minimalist principles, which funnily enough I had never applied to cooking! Thanks. xx

Sally February 12, 2011 at 8:23 pm

I’d love to win a place in your class. I think that I really need advice and guidance on the way I eat. I know at least half of it is mental and emotional. I lost my sister to cancer in 2009 and have been comfort eating on and off since then to try and avoid my grief. But its not fair on her or myself to stop being healthy and fit just because of that. I think your class would give me the guidance and education about my eating habits and would help me to become a healthier person.

Diana February 12, 2011 at 9:28 pm

Hi Jules,

I´d really like to take part in your online class, as I feel like intuitively and schience-wise knowing that the slow carb diet is THE way to go for myself, especially as I´m a vegetarian and obesely overweight.
Being obese ever since early childhood, i managed to lose just about 40 kgs over the last years, just to gain half of it back in the last year, mainly due to emotional eating, with life being extremely complicated for me overall right now.
Studying medicine myself, I very well know scientifically that this way of eating is great, especially for people having been obese for so long, insulin-resistence-, satiety- and also just nutrisious quality- wise. But besides knowing all of this I still need to put this into real life – actions, which I hope your class is going to help me with, a lot.
Additionally, I just LOVE cooking and would be really looking forward to trying out your 5 ingredient recipes, which sound intriguingly simple and fun to me.

If all this isn´t going to convince you, maybe the fact, that February the 16th, the day you announce the 10 winners, is my 28th birthday, is.
It would be a really cool and hopefully also life-changing birthday-present to get, to be part of your class.

Thanks a lot, Diana :-)

Alexandra February 13, 2011 at 3:59 am

Hi Jules,
I’d love to win a spot in your Reclaim Your Waistline class. I am an opera singer, as is my boyfriend, and even in this business, once thought to be the only acceptable place to be fat, looks are a huge part of winning auditions – and thereby feeding oneself! I really love your 5 ingredient system, as when I am on the road traveling for auditions and performances, it’s wonderful to not have to stock a huge pantry in order to prepare a healthy meal for yourself in a strange kitchen, often in a foreign country.
My boyfriend and I are both in our twenties, and looking to establish healthy, manageable eating habits for the rest of our lives. I hope to learn from you in the near future!
All the best,
Alexandra and Peter

Erin February 13, 2011 at 11:49 am

I would love, love to be a part of your class!! My husband and I have a semi-crazy life: 2 babies under two, 18 months a part; I own a children’s theatre; and my husband is a full-time drummer. With our ever-changing schedules, it’s hard to find time to join a gym or be consistent in our eating habits. We both love food, though. I have recently become interested in eating healthier but am HORRIBLE in the kitchen. This sounds like the perfect class for me. I want our family to eat as healthily as possible. I want my children to develop whole-food eating habits as soon as possible.

This seems like an amazing opportunity for me to lose the extra baby weight and start our family on the right track. Thanks so much for opening this class!

Ellie February 13, 2011 at 1:32 pm

I too found your blog through zenhabits, and I’ve been working my way through your recipes. While I love to take time to cook when I can, I’m currently a senior in college on the last leg of my thesis–your quick, simple, healthy recipes have been a godsend!

I come from an overweight family, so a love of food has always been part of my life. But since I left for college, I’ve been working to improve my eating and exercising habits, and have slowly dropped almost 50 pounds. Now, though I’m by no means skinny, I’m working out 6-8 hours every week, and training to do my first 10k in May.

Challenging myself through exercise has become a habit for me- challenging myself through better dietary choice is not, and it certainly doesn’t help that I live with three guys who can eat whatever they want! I have some good habits (no coffee, no soda, limited dairy, limited processed foods, lots of water) but I think that mentally I’m ready to make some serious changes to the way I think about food. I just need guidance.

I also have an apple body shape, so while my arms and legs (especially my legs, with all the running!) are looking great, I carry almost all of my excess weight in my back and stomach, so my waist is only a few inches smaller than my hips! This is, from everything I’ve read, the worst place to store fat as it leads to tons of weight related issues. I know that diet and exercise can only do so much against the genetics of where you store fat, but I’d love to give your class a shot and see where it takes me. I can only keep going down!

Thanks so much, keep up the awesome blogging!

Amber February 13, 2011 at 1:59 pm

Hi Jules, I’d love to have a spot in your class. I’ve been following your blog for a few months now and I have two of your cookbooks on my desktop. I’m trying to revolutionize the way my family eats (and family means myself, my hubby who has diabetes on both sides of his family, and four small, beautiful sugar addicts, inherited by my family line.) I’ve been playing around with healthy recipes and following Zen Habits as well, but I really need some tips on cooking healthy food that my family won’t all make a face at and refuse to eat. I tried making a butternut squash, spinach, navy bean soup the other day that just got tossed because nobody would eat it. :( 2011 is my year to break free from being overweight, cook simply and healthfully, and get moving, to be an inspiration for the rest of my family. Keep up the awesome recipes. :)

laurie February 13, 2011 at 3:01 pm

I would love to participate in this class for several reasons. First, I enjoy learning new things. Second, I am noticing how my metabolism has really slowed down now that I’m middle-age. Third, I love to eat and am always looking for great recipes. I’m intrigued with the concept of using only five ingredients. It sounds like fun. :-)

Eleanor February 14, 2011 at 2:27 am

I am a law student in desperate need of help and guidance! Living on next-to no money and spending hours hunched over a textbook have put my health into a miserable state of affairs! I am starting to realize that making changes from cheap fast-food to healthier choices will sustain me for longer and make me feel better. I’m also making progress to being more active, but I still need help and motivation to get to a point where I actually know WHAT I’m doing and HOW to do it!

Inspiration to keep this up would be such a gift!!

Kasey February 14, 2011 at 9:40 am

I love food, and I have tried and tried on my own but I;m just not losing the weight. Part of that is because I do not know how to cook! Really, I am bad, and I don’t know where to start. I think this class could jump start me – and in time for spring/summer, which would make me super happy!! I’d love to win a spot, because I don’t have the discretionary funding for it right now.

Em February 14, 2011 at 12:48 pm

’cause I’m fat.

Em February 14, 2011 at 12:49 pm

’cause I’m fat! And getting fatter….

Libby Bowles February 14, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Hi Jules,
I just found your blog and I am so excited to explore further.
I was just diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyorioditis and losing weight is just getting harder and harder. But I refuse to give up! I love the snippets of information in your little teaser video. I have to believe that if I can learn to eat more as nature intended that I can beat this thing. I’m really excited about the possibilities your class can offer me. Keep up the amazing work, and thanks!
Sincerely,
Libby

kylieonwheels February 14, 2011 at 5:31 pm

I am sitting here with tears in my eyes as I read all the comments.

My first thought was ‘ooh ooh me me’, but reading this has left me knowing that I shouldn’t be in the class. I am fortunate enough to have reclaimed my waistline already, and there are so many more deserving people than I. (this isn’t a pathetic attempt at reverse psychology, I’m serious)

I was never extremely overweight, but I do know how it feels to be unhappy. To hate yourself. And when I read what everyone has written about their own plight to reclaim their waistlines, I sense that hate in their words. I love the community that you have created here, Jules. I hope that everyone who isn’t lucky enough to fall in the chosen 10 still sticks around to enjoy the chatter and the learning as we all share our experiences and our love.

Keep smilin’ everyone :) xxoo

Nessa February 14, 2011 at 7:36 pm

Please Jules

Em, how can I better that comment! You make all this stuff I just wrote sound like such fluff ….!!!

Jules, I really, really like what you make. I really like cooking too and eating …

I have been loving your approach to cooking & how we think about what we eat for about six months now, at the same time I have also been packing on the kilo’s. I used to be normal now I’m fat. Nothing fits me and I feel bad about myself.

I would love some inspiration. Breathe in, listen, breath out … inspire, cooking as creativity! Perhaps The Unbearable Lightness of Being is just around thestonesoup corner for me.
Thanks Nessa
Thanks Nessa

YvetteDownunder February 14, 2011 at 7:45 pm

Waistline – sigh. I used to have one of those. It even survived three pregnancies. Not sure how, but somewhere around my 40th birthday, it went away!

I eat better than ever before. I exercise more than ever before.

I weigh more than ever before. My dress size is larger than ever before.

I need help! I despair that I have somehow ended up with a different body shape than I started with and that hardly seems fair! I am 47 and my kids are all in their 20s. I want to be healthy for my second adulthood, not living with an unhealthy body type.

Thanks

Yvette

RECIPE FOR RECLAIMING MY WAISTLINE

INGREDIENTS
love of cooking
love of self
desire to lose weight
free class from stonesoup
willpower

METHOD
1. beat willpower until doubled in size
2. mix all ingredients – adding willpower in a steady stream
3. continue to do so until body feels firm and healthy
(will keep for a lifetime if a little more willpower added daily)

Caity February 14, 2011 at 9:53 pm

Why I need to reclaim my waistline: Because I’m sick of not being able to see my feet when I need to do up my shoes! It may not be the most creative reason, but it’s the truth.

Christine February 14, 2011 at 9:55 pm

Hi Jules!

Absolutely love what you’re doing on stonesoup. Your five-ingredients recipe concept is truly genius. I think we desperately need more simplicity in our busy modern day lives. I also love how you’re incorporating the health dimension to minimalistic cooking. That is the best part to me. :) I’m currently studying nutrition therapy, and I’ve found that one of the biggest difficulties many people (myself included) face while undergoing treatment is the area on food. We all know the we need our five servings of veg a day, and that carbs (especially refined, high GI&GL ones) are not beneficial nor health promoting, etc etc — but the challenge is how to integrate such a diet into our daily lives and still enjoy delicious food at the same time… So yeah, please count me in for your competition! I’d love to win a place in your class because this is something I know will not only benefit my family and me, but all the people I’ll be helping & consulting. Your class sounds like something that would be doubly awesome because your minimalistic approach makes cooking and good health very achievable :)

Cheers!
- Christine (from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

Anne February 14, 2011 at 11:11 pm

I bcame a stonesoup convert last year when I started working and suddenly had to make prepared lunches everyday. Your chickpea and parmesan and chilli tuna in a bag ideas quickly developed a following – perfect for the time poor girl who is not too handy in the kitchen but wants a cheap, nutritious lunch. Unlike many of my slow food friends I don’t like being in the kitchen and I don’t like fussy over elaborate recipes so I’d love the chance to learn about these food philosophies after they’ve had the Stonesoup treatment.

Juhli February 14, 2011 at 11:51 pm

I too would love to win a place in your class. At 61 I am a year out from the third surgery in 2 years to correct the same problem (3 was the charm) and have been doing pilates for 6 months to get back in shape. I feel great but my waistline isn’t budging. Could it be those lattes and cookies, LOL?

bonnie weller February 15, 2011 at 12:25 am

OK, Jules, you asked for enthusiasm.
When I signed up for this email after first seeing your site, I was prepared to delete and unsubscribe. But each email has been very unobtrusive and just plain teaching. So, on this busy morning, I was prepared to delete you.

But then I saw your neat idea: One Day a Week to Eat Whatever You Want, I thought, ‘Now why didn’t I think of that for my husband and me!? What a Reward!

It’s a wonderful idea! I just need to lose about 7 lbs., but my husband needs to lose more. He could do that!

THANK YOU. WE’RE ON IT. AND TODAY, VALENTINE’S DAY, WILL BE OUR FIRST DAY OF REWARD. WE’D ALREADY STARTED A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO, WHAT A LOVELY REWARD IN THE MIDDLE. I’M TELLING MY DAUGHTER-IN-LAW IMMEDIATELY.

Sincerely,
Bonnie Weller

Susan B February 15, 2011 at 1:39 am

Oh hooray! A competition! I love (friendly) competitions!

I’m a working mom with a working (and graduate-student) husband – our son is 5 years old – and I battle life & my schedule (and our thin finances) every day to cook a nutritious meal that we three sit down to every night because I truly believe it is the only way to live. I win the battle – generally speaking – on a frequent basis, but at the moment I’ve lost my waistline because two weeks ago (two weeks ago TODAY, as a matter of fact!) I gave birth to my daughter, Isobel, and despite eating healthily while pregnant with her and exercising on a daily basis, I still have to shift some weight from carrying her around for the past 9 months.

Finances are tight, so I can’t justify spending (healthy ingredient) money on an online class at the moment, so the contest is a thrilling chance for me! As I’m home from work for the next 12 weeks to watch my daughter grow and develop, I’m fascinated by the chance to make myself a lovely guinea pig for the Slow-Carb method of eating, as I’m a – possible- perfect candidate for the new-ish eating method, and am certainly eager and dedicated to getting back into my (non-elastic waist) pants again in a healthy yet rapid manner!

Laura February 15, 2011 at 1:52 am

Reclaim my waistline?? Yes! Don’t mind if I do! I have been either pregnant, breastfeeding, and for a minute even pregnant while breastfeeding, for the last 3 years and 7 months (not that I was counting or anything). In the last month my body has become my own again… and I’m wondering why my waist didn’t get returned with the rest of it!

Refusing to believe that I have trade my waistline in for my two kids I began a quest to figure out how to get it back. “Internet destiny” has led me to your blog (amongst other information about low glycemic eating) and it is really hitting home for me. Having had gestational diabetes during both of my pregnancies I know that my body has some insulin issues. So, please, help me in my quest, teach me how to cook quick simple meals that will help me get my waistline back!! I really miss it.

Robyn February 15, 2011 at 2:44 am

I am so excited about this class! I love the simplicity of your recipes. You’re a terrific writer — fun, encouraging, knowledgeable. I’m so interested in the online course. (The title is brill, by the way). Sounds so empowering. Thanks for running the contest!

Jeannette February 15, 2011 at 7:08 am

Winning a spot in the fabulously named class Reclaim Your Waistline in five easy steps, or less!

1. Crossing all things crossable, fingers, toes, legs, arms, hair braided too just to ensure nothing is missed.
2. Send prayers to all holy entities at once.
3. Pull out every good luck charm known to man, four leaf clovers, rabbit’s foot, lucky crystals, gnome, buddha belly, scarabs, ladybugs, horseshoe, lucky pennies, bamboo plant, cook turkey for wishbone.
4. When all else fails, compliment the teacher!

Jules, you’re inspiring, really you are. I love the blog, love the recipes. So simplistic but so very tasty. Some of the taste combo’s absolutely blow me away. I’m loving the mint, ricotta, pasta dish right now! Thank you and good luck to all, love reading all the inspiring stories!

Cheers!!

Tara February 15, 2011 at 8:53 am

Simone February 15, 2011 at 1:28 pm

Jules, Jules, Jules

Where do I start, I guess my first priority should be to look after my heart.

The next would be to shed the weight that has piled on since some operations and makes me feel a little self hate!

I’ll be an be an awesome walking advertisement and make you really proud cause I’ll tell everyone I know and I’m super super loud!

Read all about it…read all about it… sign up to “reclaim your waistline” and you too can look this fine!!

I am trying myself and have made a start but I need some motivation c’mon let me be a part!

Anke February 15, 2011 at 5:26 pm

Hi Jules,
I hope I’m not too late to leave a comment (it’s 8:21 am here in Germany)…

Well, I had spent 10 years in the USA and gained over 20 kg, of which the first 10 came down surprisingly fast upon my return to Germany 6 years ago. I then struggled to lose another 4-5 kg, which I finally succeeded in last year and seemed on a good path towards reaching my goal, until about 3 months ago, when I suddenly started gaining again – for no real apparent reason whatsoever?! I have gained 3 kg in 3 months, and do not seem to be able to reverse that trend— help, please!!

I love your recipes and look forward to them and your great videos, so taking part in a cooking school made by you would be just awesome!

Keep up the good work!

Anke :)

Nathalie February 15, 2011 at 8:13 pm

Hi Jules!

I would so love to win a place in your cooking school because i have just finished reading Tim Feriss’ book and would like to learn more about slow carb eating. I need to get back in shape this year as i have been slacking the past couple of years due to a stressful job and depression. I am slowly “reclaiming” my life back and as a matter of fact have quit the job that makes me miserable :) and am now preparing to move from luxembourg to london to pursue my dream of working for a museum! I now just need to reclaim my waistline back :) thanks xxx

Trish B February 16, 2011 at 3:08 am

The day before I read this, I lost my waistline-I need help!!! I decided I needed to buy some new jeans, and found some online that I liked. But….I couldn’t find an actual waistline to measure. And I used to be proud of my hourglass figure. Well that glass is busted. As far as I can determine, my waist is larger than my hips used to be-and of course, my hips are even larger. I need help-desperately!!! I also like the ease of your recipews.

Jennifer Ott February 16, 2011 at 7:18 am

Waistline?! 4 kids in 6 years (including my 2-month-old baby) have made that almost fiction! I do love to cook, but buying and then remembering to use many ingredients is impossible right now. I would love to take this course!
