Hi everyone I have absolutely no idea what I'm here for .... It just 'feels' right. I'm struggling to go vegan/plant based. I'm almost there, but I keep giving in to coffee (with milk) and chocolate every time I feel stressed, which is a lot as I am mum to multiple food allergies and autism spectrum. Currently 8 kgs overweight and full of excuses. Just got a new gym membership and got a close friend who is raw vegan and bodybuilding. Looking to learn a lot from the forum, but I guess I am looking for a place to ask questions without fear or judgement

Hi ashvalli, black coffee is fine, or you should try a few different soy milks, as for the chocolate, if you're a fan of dark chocolate, the 70%+ cocoa chocolates typically have no dairy in them

if i were you, i would probably spend my effort trying to follow a more wholesome diet, cutting out fast foods and junk foods, rather than feeling bad over a couple slips, i find that alot of people who have a more typical diet, with more processed, flavored foods tend to kind of screw up their taste buds, and find it much harder to get enjoyment from say, a salad, or wholemeal breads, vegetables etc, tastebuds can be re-written with a little persistance though

 

where abouts in aus are you from?

Hi! I just joined yesterday as well! If you are like me, stuff your cravings with fresh fruits and vegs, and you will no longer crave them. Instead, you will crave high nutritious foods

Worked for me and I hope it will for you too!

 

I was highly addicted to chocolate, pizza and bread and I never crave those anymore... But if you do, there are always vegan alternatives!

Thanks for the encouragement guys! I think I put so much pressure on myself to eat a perfect diet! Lucky I don't eat any takeaway or junk due to my daughters anaphylaxis. I just really like chocolate! Lol! Looking forward to going back to the gym this week after the kids have had colds.

 

My daughter is allergic to all nuts, sesame, pine nuts, banana!! And penicillin. Vegan is tough because of the no nuts or banana, and she is also wheat and casein free. She hates meat too, so that just leaves fruit, veg, rice, legumes and lentils trying my best!!
