Help! Memory issues (maybe an Omega 3 problem...)

Okay - so my boss read me the riot act today, accusing me of having a serious lack of long term memory. (He actually sounded worried, and suggested that I go see a doctor...) Honestly, my job performance is just fine...I always get top notch performance reviews, and take detailed notes on projects s...

Re: Two Questions for Vegans

Hi Joe - Seeing that no-one's responded to the post yet (and speaking as someone who is *mostly vegan*, but doesn't avoid honey), I believe the issue is that domesticated bees are harmed by the honey harvesting process. For that reason, honey isn't acceptable. I guess you could argue the same thing ...

Re: The Ethics of Shrimp?

CollegeB - From my understanding of your definition, my position isn't welfarist. Just to clarify - it's strictly moral...working from a different assumption and starting point of what is moral, vs. what isn't. For me, if it can be argued that there is no sense of self, spark of life, awareness, etc...

College B - From what I understand of your definition of welfarist, I'm not - my position is strictly moral, working from a different starting point/assumption of what constitutes moral vs. immoral action. For me, if there's no sense of self (such as--probably--an oyster, then there's no life and no...

Re: The Ethics of Shrimp?

Hey Medman - Thanks for the nod...and you've definitely got a point about the collateral damage issue. (From what I understand, more and more shrimp are farmed...which raises it's own rather significant problems re: health. IE: lots of antibiotics thrown into the water, resulting in more resistant s...

Re: The Ethics of Shrimp?

VJ: thanks...valid point!

Zinzen: I'm sure you didn't mean that as a personal slam, but it definitely felt that way (distressing, when I feel I'm posting a legitimate question). Thanks for the input, regardless.

Re: The Ethics of Shrimp?

Hi Medman - Valid point re: the collateral damage - and it's definitely something that's weighing into my considerations. (Then that little voice in my head wonders how much collateral damage is caused from harvesting plant crops...???) College B: ?!? Can you clarify? My personal stance is that's im...

Eating in restaurants (how strict do you get?)

Was wondering how strict other vegans get when eating out in restaurants? Not talking about cheating, of course....but more like checking up on ingredients in things like the table bread, etc? (I've never bothered to ask the waitperson whether there were eggs or milk in the bread, for instance...and...

The Ethics of Shrimp?

Hi - Wanted to run this by the group - I've been a vegan for 3 years now, and don't really have anyone likeminded in my social circle (my husband, for instance, is totally omni...) My reasoning for being vegan is completely on moral grounds - ie: I don't want to kill or cause suffering to any creatu...

Re: Desperate to get shredded! (Ultra Low carb...?)

Joelk, Rainra - Thx... You know, I wonder if it's partially a gender thing? (I'm female, and my body just seems to react to carbs by automatically storing it as fat.) Re: raw options - a question for Rainra... What do you eat? I've tried raw (ish), with a focus on fruit and nuts, and not only did it...

Re: Desperate to get shredded! (Ultra Low carb...?)

You know, I don't know - technically - if I'm allergic to wheat or gluten. (Would that keep someone from losing weight?) Among the things I've tried are: low carb with protein powder and meat substitutes (tofurky, tofu, seitan and tempeh), and on the other end, raw(ish) with lots of fruit. Neither d...

Desperate to get shredded! (Ultra Low carb...?)

For the past 2(!) years, I've been trying to lose my last 10-15 lbs - lifting heavily regularly, doing regular (spin) cardio, and eating clean. It HASN'T gone away. This has been amazingly frustrating for me... Before I was vegan, I was on Atkins and the fat *melted* off my body, no problem. It seem...

Has anyone tried the Thrive Diet?

For the longest time, I've had a HECK of a time getting cut (went low carb, tried counting calories, etc.) Have been around the weight lifting game for ages, but thought I'd try Brendan's diet...both for that, and just general health. Anyone have experience with it? Thanks! :D
