Re: Vega Pre-workout and Muscle recovery formula

Maybe it's all in my mind, but I think the Vega pre-workout stuff helps me get through a grueling hour with my trainer. Everyone I know is insistent that you need protein right after a workout, so yeah -- add protein to it. It will help you recover. P90x is pretty intense, so you need lots of protein.

Re: The 7 Habits Of Healthy Vegans

I know what you mean about the cheese -- it is very hard to give up, and the fake cheeses are pretty lame, especially if you want them melted. Veggie slices aren't too bad, but they don't melt well. I'm finding eating vegan VERY enjoyable because I love to cook and I've been experimenting with all k...

Re: Many forms of vegan mentality?

My whole family hunts. I'm the only vegan in the family and I do it simply for health reasons. I was diabetic before I started eating vegan, and now I'm not. I have no problem going hunting because anything I kill will get eaten by my family. I don't bow hunt even though I am an Ojibwa, because I th...

Re: Woman Bodybuilding

Find a trainer who has competed for him/herself. The guy who owns the gym I go to in Phoenix competed and so does a lady trainer I know in Phoenix. In fact, she is in a show right now. The useless trainers are usually the ones in the meat market gyms, so do your research.

Re: Eating immediately after a workout and how much protein?

I have trouble eating BEFORE a workout. I get heartburn or I feel like I'm gonna puke. After a workout I have trouble getting enough protein without getting too many calories.

Do you cook meat, fish, eggs, etc for a non-vegan spouse?

My husband is not a vegan, so I cook meat for him. He has come to love many of my vegan recipes, so I don't have to cook two separate meals as often as I did when I first became vegan. Is your spouse vegan? If not, do you cook for him or her? Who does the shopping? Does it gross you out to watch the...

Re: Who's not watching the superbowl?

We didn't watch it either. Just don't care for football. We went to Sprouts.

Re: Partially vegan?

I don't know what she was thinking, but from the context I think she meant that she ate vegan meals 80% of the time. Weird, huh? I for one would rather NOT have people know I'm vegan. Some people get really defensive and others shun you because they don't feel free to eat what they want in front of ...

Re: Stats that will blow your mind...

Like the guy in the Bible who said "all I know is I was blind and now I see"; all I can say is I had diabetes and now I don't. Becoming 100% vegan was the only change I made. No meds.

Partially vegan?

One of my Facebook friends posted a recipe recently, and said that she is "about 80%" vegan. Is that even possible? Isn't that like being a little bit pregnant? Has anybody else here run into people who claim to be partially vegan?

Re: Veganism and Native Americans

My family is Bear clan. As far as I know, I am the lone vegan Ojibwa in AZ. There aren't very many Ojibwa here anyway so I'm related to most of them. We are from the Red Lake Minnesota band. I have an extra struggle because I have been an outdoor writer for over 25 years, writing hunting and fishing...

Re: Martial Arts And Weight Training

I have a black belt in taekwondo. I think that the weight training has helped a great deal by making me stronger and giving me more endurance. I usually train on Monday Wednesday and Friday, and I do taekwondo on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The taekwondo keeps me limber and helps stretch my muscles. It ...

Re: Anybody here outdoorsy?

Y'all are not going to like this. My dad was an Ojibwa Indian who took me on my first hunting trip when I was about 8 years old. I have hunted and fished all my life. Recently I discovered that what I like most about hunting is the hiking, so I've been doing a lot of hiking and I shoot sporting clay...

Re: New You for the New Year Contest 4

My husband took a photo of me in 2006. I was 223 pounds. I didn't even recognize myself! I signed up at the gym the next day and I've been working out three or more times a week ever since. My husband and grand kids work out with me now and we all hike together, too.

Re: New You for the New Year Contest 3

I had diabetes and sky-high cholesterol, even after losing 83 pounds and working out three days a week for five years. I tried the low carb diet and it did nothing but make things worse. So I decided to give a vegan diet a try for three months. Truth is, I was actually hoping it would NOT work. I co...
