Re: Constipated when switching diet

I use to have crazy acne and bloating.. Lately I've been fermenting a lot of stuff like yogurt, sauerkraut, water kefir, kombucha.. and I might try to ferment beans. I have cut all legumes out though as they seem to be hard to digest(which is why I may experiment with fermenting them).. I removed al...

Re: Stronglifts for three months and hit a pleateau??

how often do you lift weights? are you overtraining? perhaps you need more time between training days for recovery/rebuilding the muscle.

Re: Should veganism mean more than what you put in your mout

It is what it is.
Everyone likes to define things, but it doesn't always mean what you define is how everyone will see it. Isn't that enough?
Sometimes the less defined things are, the more welcoming it appears to others. I would think that would be a good thing.

Re: Can't seem to stick the landing

Introduce a new food you haven't tried before(or don't eat much of) that isn't meat so that you have something else to think about.

Re: Why is it hard to be vegan?!?!

Well, my Kombucha tea sat for 9 days, so I finally drank some today. I didn't know what to expect in the taste since I never drank any before, it had a bit of a vinegar flavor which might be because I had to use a bit of vinegar to start the batch since I had no Kombucha tea previously. I started a ...

Re: Why is it hard to be vegan?!?!

That's great to hear blissful86!
One thing I discovered recently is that Kombucha Tea contains B vitamins.. It supposedly contains b12, but it isn't proven as far as I know. I've recently started making my own, and have yet to drink it. Figured I'd mention it to you.

Re: When to eat?

There are different opinions regarding scheduling. Some people say you should eat frequently about every 2 or 3 hours so that your body can maintain an anabolic state. Others choose something in line with intermittent fasting where one goes a period without eating to allow toxins to be removed and r...

Re: Why is it hard to be vegan?!?!

I struggle with acne as well. If I eat a lot of bananas, I find I break out. Certain fruits I can tolerate better than others. It might be related to the sugars raising the insulin levels which effects hormones, which then effects acne. Foods with a high-glycemic index can spike your insulin levels ...

Re: Advice please: I think our house is haunted

What you describe sound like some of the known effects a person can witness while falling asleep. You can do a search about it, but if you fall asleep while maintaining some level of consciousness, you're spatial awareness can feel different and you can start feeling vibrations (which makes you beli...

Re: Consuming Enough Protein on a Raw Food Diet

Hi Kon, I think its fair to say, that if are bodies did not use what was/is made available to us, then we would never have made it as a species... Self experimentation is good Kon, i see you still keep some cooked quinoa in your diet, and why not, this is a very nutritious "superfood". I ...

Re: Consuming Enough Protein on a Raw Food Diet

I'm curious how these studies measure the foods after being cooked. Ultimately it doesn't matter if a food has more of something available if what is available can't be used appropriately by the body. In other words.. It only matters how our bodies react to what we consume, and the only way to find ...

Re: Lifting/pump

I think focusing more on the contractions and making sure the muscles get stimulated deeply will help. Often people tend to naturally lift weights in the most mechanically efficient way possible that doesn't engage the muscles as much as possible. Maybe try slowing down and hold the contractions a b...

Re: Consuming Enough Protein on a Raw Food Diet

As far as the issue of not cooking food goes, I recently have stopped cooking my food unless I absolutely need to. The only thing I cook now is quinoa. I haven't noticed any weight loss but all my life I've generally been on the light side compared to your average person. Lately I've turned to eatin...

Re: Anyone get grief mentioning youre vegan? Trying to deal

Interesting post. I like how open you are as to the whether or not I ACTUALLY act like I (and my vegetarian food) are better than other people AND whether or not I actually say what food is best for other people (given the fact I didn't say I did EITHER of these). I swear, you must be ABSOLUTELY gr...

Re: Anyone get grief mentioning youre vegan? Trying to deal

I never think to mention it. If nobody is genuinely interested in what I eat, there's no point talking about it. What I eat is my concern only. What other people eat is not my concern. I was raised a vegetarian, so been one my entire life, and I've never received any grief for it from anyone. The ke...
