Re: Chad Love: Take a Vegan Hunting Day

Urging people to give up meat, but not any other use of animals, for one day does not convey this message at all. I will disagree with this because that's what happened with me. I went vegan because of a medical condition. I didn't give a shit about animals. I was the asshole that told vegans that ...

Re: Biggest Loser Trainer goes Vegan

The issue of being a vegan and advocating non-vegan items for your job is, well, it can be dicey. I noticed that the lovely Marzia Price was added to the Profiles section of the website, and she works for the non-vegan Gaspari Nutrition. On the one hand, you are making a choice to stay away from ani...

Re: Need help with how to get the body I want

I dont like lifting weights anymore either, I prefer bodyweight exercises, but I cant even do more than 3 pushups and I couldnt do a pullup to save my life, literally. I measured a while back and I could pull myself up about 3 inches from a dead hang. Ive never exercised being vegan tho, so I dont ...

Re: P90X Push through or take breaks?

No one increases stamina by repeatedly taking breaks. If you want to be able to hang in there, you have to hang in there. That doesn't mean you have to go at their speed, but you do have to continue with it instead of taking breaks. Some advice that the recruiters gave us was "to do the distanc...

Re: Fitness certification?

I went through NASM. From what I saw, it required the most understanding of the body and nutrition, including requirements for certifications in CPR and defibrillator training. The others didn't seem as "science intense" or completely anal about this stuff, which is why I chose NASM.

Re: If you're vegan on and isolated island what do you eat?

Most islands have root veggies. High in starch and therefore calories, and super easy to obtain (don't have to climb a tree or collect handfuls of berries). Seems like the best choice.

Re: Veganism Solves Some World Problems

The presentation went well. I had about 50 sources from non-animal sites, did not include any photos (except of fit vegans on the "Myth - 'Vegans Are Scrawny And Pale!'" slide), and did not talk about animal suffering. After all, it's an environmental class and with the attitudes most peop...

Re: Oxygen Mag to Do Interview, Sample Diet and Pic of Me! :

I'm surprised that they didn't differentiate vegan from vegetarian. Some women may say, "Oh, no meat? Well, all the protein shakes and many of the meals call for nonfat dairy and egg whites, so I can totally do that." Other than that, I think it's great that they decided to feature a vegan!

Re: Can anyone help to lose the 10 pound muffin top?

Great advice so far, but let me add something else: increase intensity. Clearly, what you are doing now isn't working, so doing the same thing over and over and expecting new results is, well, crazy...let's just be honest. If your current activity level and diet have allowed a froofy muffin top to c...

Re: General qeuestions, new vegetarian/vegan!

To come at it from the other end, I went vegan overnight from being a "super omnivore" as I call it (I'd eat up to or over a pound of animal products at each of my 6 daily meals). I had no problems, and, in fact, felt better from day 1. My energy increased in a couple days, and my recovery...

Re: Animal Protein VS Vegan Protein for Muscles

Pat, When you consume food that has protein, it breaks down into amino acids, and your body uses them to repair your cells, including muscle cells. Your body doesn't give two shits whether those amino acids came from soy or meat. Exercise for what you want, and protein/carbs/fats/water to fuel your ...

Re: What is a complete protein?

Thanks for the responses. Let's say I am eating one type of food, like hemp for example. And let's say it has low levels of 2 different kinds of amino acids. Why wouldn't eating a lot of hemp satisfy your needs since, by eating a lot of hemp, you'd be accumulating more of each amino acid. Does it h...
