Re: Dr.McDougall -- The Starch Solution

I like his ideas and I think he's definitively a good advocate for a healthier eating. Most of his ideas work for me. I do eat starchy foods but also mix it up with legumes, some raw veggies, fruits and nuts,seeds, tofu. I am just hungry every 1-2 hours if I don't eat complex carbs. You guys should ...

I already eat these and much more(we don't seem to have here hemp seeds though). As I said my Diet pretty much balanced that's why it seems weird.

Do you get that much fiber?

I know that I do get a lot of fiber. I'd say even too much. I've been Vegan for a year now. I did build myself a balanced and junk free Diet. It does contain cooked and raw foods. I avoid eating fruits like one hour before and after a meal. But for the last couple weeks I've been feeling bloated. An...

Re: How to stay motivated to workout?

What's your WHY? Why do you workout? What's the result you wanna achieve? what will it give you once you achieved it? How will you know that you achieved your big goal? After you come up with answers for these questions. You should build yourself some smaller specific goals, that will support the bi...

Re: disney princess soon to become WWF superstar...

Just to add to what Richard and Robert said. Do you know the difference between perfection and excellence? Perfection = That is when nothing is good enough, it comes from lack of self appreciation. It strives for something that can never be achieved. And it takes every temporary stumble as negative....

Re: Reintroduction-want to get back into it!

Hi Emma, I like Alex's advice above, and I'm taking it to heart as well. Maybe I'll post it in my house so I see it everyday. :) Do it! and let it serve you as a daily reminder. That's what I teach the people I work with, and that's what I do for myself. My house is full of these written reminders ...

Re: How much soy I can eat daily?

Processed or far from its natural form = JUNK.
If a product has some nutrition in it doesn't mean it's healthy.

clean tofu/soy can be ok to add to your plan. But I wouldn't eat it 3 times a day that's for sure.
Balance it with some clean Whole foods.

Re: Reintroduction-want to get back into it!

Hi and welcome again. Advices are pretty much useless without action. - Ask yourself what's your big Why that gonna help you follow thru this time. Even when challenges arise and even when usual daily excuses arise. - Make a true decision and commit to the outcome that you want. A true decision is w...

Re: I'm here to hash through this vegan philosophy

Hi and Welcome, If you are looking for a study that will give you some absolute truth you won't find any. You can get info from different places but at the end the decision is yours. There isn't even such thing an absolute truth. There are so many studies that contradict each other. Science already ...

Re: healthy eating obsession (AKA Orthorexia)

Since this is basically a healthy vegan forum -- does anybody think they have a healthy eating obsession. I'm guessing the majority of people posting and reading this forum understand what is in the foods and how certain foods, toxins, sweeteners, preservatives or process foods could lead to future...

Re: Taking a nap after a workout?

I'm all good after the nap. But it's 1- 2 hour nap and cutting my day shorter. Two hours sounds more like making up for a lack of sleep than just enjoying a quick, post-workout refresher. Do you feel like you get a good night's sleep? Some people sleep in chunks like that instead of just once durin...

Re: Taking a nap after a workout?

I've taken naps and rests here and there after my workouts all my life. It's called listening to your body and giving it what it needs. There's a tradition among 14ner baggers (people who hike the 14,000' mountains in Colorado) of taking a nap on the summit. When you get to the top, it's not uncomm...

Taking a nap after a workout?

Lately I've been lifting heavier and I am getting super sleepy like 2-3 hours after a workout. I thought maybe the meal after the workout is too big. I am trying to break and eat even smaller meals. But I am not sure that's the issue. Today for example I just had to take a nap. When I was doing more...

Re: Im Vegan and Gluten-Free

It doesn't look like I have a problem with Gluten. But I was actually thinking of trying it. Maybe it could help me burn that last fat I have to expose a six pack.

Re: Anybody here gained muscle mass without Protein suppleme

I haven't used protein powder in years, and don't intend to go back to it. Building lean muscle takes time. Even world class IFBB pro's using steroids take more than a decade of training to get to the mr. Olympia stage, Dorian Yates and Jay Cutler both come to mind. They were both big dudes active ...
