Re: Diabetic and vegan

Wow, that would be a hard one to figure out being type 1 diabetic and trying to get down to low bodyfat. Though I do know that decades ago, insulin shots were the way to go to get rid of bodyfat easily (and not healthy as the individuals were not diabetic at all). Carb cycling sounds good to try nex...

Re: Need help in planning grocery list

I would add lentils (green or red, though the green ones are bigger and have more of a transitional chew to them), and cashews (raw and unsalted). The lentils are good for a veggie soup (I just put what ever veggies in the fridge doesn't look the greatest to eat raw or cooked by itself), or take the...

Re: getting lean and defined

I wanted to say that I have trouble sleeping some nights too. It usually happens when I have calorie restricted my day. And what I mean with my no sleep, is that I basically pass out at the beginning, then wake up 3 hours later (around 2 AM) with the feeling that I want to go run outside and do some...

Re: Thoughts on candida overgrowth?

Nice that the UK requires strict labeling of produce. The USA keeps trying, but the industry is just so big and strong - bullies. Make sure you are not overtraining. This has happened to me in the past (my younger years of bodybuilding). You should read Thrive by Brendan Brazier. He talks about the ...

Re: Thoughts on candida overgrowth?

When you throw in the words "I don't even drink alcohol anymore", I become a little concerned that you might have done too much damaged to your body, and are looking at the vegan diet to help you deal with it. It may help you heal some things inside your body, but not if you damaged some t...

Re: How do you eat 4000-5000 kcal?

You need to do it slowly. You can't just start downing 4000 calories if you are use to 2500 calories. Your body won't be able to process it and it will just end up in the colon waiting to be exported out. I find eating every 2-3 hours to be most helpful. There is no mind set of breakfast, lunch, din...

Re: Thoughts on candida overgrowth?

I tell clients when they start to clean up their diet, that they will detox for awhile . . sometimes up to 6 months. Detox is the fat letting go of the toxins it held within itself so the body could be isolated from the poison, but now you are utilizing the adipose tissue for energy (which can be wh...

Re: VeganBeast training log

Lost only a pound for this week, but I haven't pushed myself with the diet - just cleaned it up and regulated portion control. My main focus for the past week has been trying out a different workout routine. I have gotten into a routine just the past 3 days - which means I have been consistent and t...

Re: VeganBeast training log

I did have leftover stuffing (three types of bread, EarthBalance, and walnuts - plus other veggies but those are OK for this eating plan) yesterday that would not be allowed anymore. So here I go. Official weigh in this morning was 164.4 lbs. My son reminded me that I have to go back to looking at a...

Re: VeganBeast training log

Dedicated December my son has coined the term for the month of December starting tomorrow. I like to start on Mondays, so I decided to start today - and if I blunder by eating something yummy (like vegan pumpkin pie) then I will just say it was a trial run. So far I jogged 5 miles this morning. I di...

Re: VeganBeast training log

Well, I am just under 160 lbs already. I have gone up in weights by 5 lbs for the dumbells, and off the charts for my back and legs. I did a 360 lbs on the Smith Machine Power Squat! Now, the range of motion was short, and my glutes were sore, but so was my lower back (core muscles had a hard time s...

Re: VeganBeast training log

This week I decided to stop fighting all the holiday treats and go with bulking up in the next 2 months. I will follow the culture this time and use it to my advantage. So I have been trying to eat more, bread and pasta are back on the menu, and the weights are progressing up, up, up! The only thing...

Re: Fat loss, fitness gain

Sounds like exercise induced asthma. My kids had that when they played soccer. You have to increment your cardio training, and doing yoga breath work (to work your lower lungs) helps build up the time before it hits you. My personal breathing technique helps me with this. Instead of taking one long ...

Re: VeganBeast training log

OK, it is now cold in the morning in Michigan: 46 degrees F. I get to wear my long running pants with the pocket for my iPhone on the sides of the legs - luv it because I do not have to strap the fanny pack around my waist. And I do not know what I did before my earbuds with bluetooth (just have to ...
