Re: Diet for Arthritis

Well I see that many fruits are higher in calories than veggies and are low in GI index (which I think means they're slow-digesting and provide long-term energy). I assumed fruit carbs were faster digesting because they were sugary.

Welcome!

I think the OP meant they have been a vegan for the past 4 years, not since 4 years of age.

Diet for Arthritis

I have arthtritis in both knees and have read about the benefits of both gluten-free and grain-free diets. I'm trying to figure out how to get enough slow-digesting, complex, non-inflammatory carbs without eating any grains but I'm stuck. I've been looking at http://nutritiondata.self.com/ I see som...

Re: this is all new to me!

Welcome, mrivard! I'm a newbie too, so I won't try to offer you advice on lifting. I'm impressed by your cardio work, for sure. What is an 80/10/10 lifestyle? I'm sure everyone is blown away at how weak they are when they first start-- it will improve. I've been lifting for only 2 weeks, and I can ...

Re: What's the biggest motivator of your vegan diet?

I'm onboard with all of the reasons. I've noticed that most vegans are vegans and the vegans who stay vegans do so because they don't want to hurt animals. Environmentalists tend toward reducing their animal product use rather than eliminating it. Health nuts tend not to have a problem with taking ...

Re: Hello :)

Welcome to the forum! P.S. Broccoli is one of my favourite foods too! Do you have it plain and raw or do you cheat? If the former, it's hard to imagine it being a favorite food.

Re: What's the biggest motivator of your vegan diet?

Interesting. I've never really understood how someone could do it just for health because I think it would be so easy to make exceptions. Your health isn't really going to deteriorate if you have a slice of pepperoni pizza once a month for example. I'm not trying to criticize health vegans; it's ju...
