  1. hey i don't know if you've thought about logging your food on a website, but i just started logging my diet on livestrong - http://www.livestrong.com/thedailyplate

     

    it will tell you how many calories/fat/protein/carbs etc that you are getting, and break it down in charts and graphs too. it even tells you if you get enough b12 and other vitamins. you can also add what type of workout you do and it'll estimate your calories burned, which might be helpful.

     

    you can check out my food log if you want an idea of how it works - http://www.livestrong.com/thedailyplate/diary/who/jessibot/

     

    anyway, hope that helps!

  2. i'm really lucky to be in nyc, because of all the amazing vegan options here within walking distance.

     

    but i believe that there is no reason to flock to a town because of this. why not start your own veg restaurant, coffee house, store, etc. right in your own hometown? there are surely like minded people where you live, and you'll be fulfilling a need for diverse dining. not directed at anyone, but just a thought to throw out there.

  3. my dog (black lab) has been vegan her entire 11 years. she's happy and healthy as a puppy. we feed her Natural Balance Vegetarian formula (sold at Petco, and other places) and whatever table scraps she likes.

     

    and I second the bunny comment - i have 2 awesome bunnies, who are natural herbivores. they make great housepets, easy to litterbox train, and are smart as hell. for those of you who are thinking of adopting, check out http://www.rabbit.org for info.

  4. hey everyone!

     

    i've been lurking a bit, and found this place after watching the vegan fitness dvd. actually, it goes like this. listened to erik marcus's podcast with brendan brazier, bought and read the thrive diet, watched vegan fitness, researched on the internets, found this place!

     

    anyway, i've been vegan about 10 or 11 years now, started off in the hardcore/straight-edge scene and went from there. i've been kind of a junk food vegan for the past decade, with on and off bouts of "going raw" to try and get healthy. i used to be into mountain biking and road riding, going to the gym, etc, but haven't done anything besides yoga in the past 5 years.

     

    well, i'm here for support, knowledge, help, therapy - haha, and to just get back the life and body i used to have. i'm 29, about to get married, ready to start fresh.

     

    well i started a little food blog, and trying to keep that up as much as possible. it's here: http://jessibot.blogspot.com/ if anyone is interested in checking it out.

     

    well, that's all for now!
