  1. I been taking a multi vitamin and an iron tablet daily well, on and off. and have noticed to much my iron levels are 8.0 from 8.2 last I checked. Is there any good vitamins you guy will recommend for me to try, thanks Ashland
  2. Title sounds worse , but basically I was at work yesterday felt great. Then I started getting all sweaty which isn't unusual, because it is hot at my job. Then I started feeling dizzy and was losing my breathe by just walking. I felt a weakness in my thighs and arms, they were really sore. I at first thought I was dehydrated, so I was gulping down powerade which wasn't helping. And things that are light were feeling like they weighed a ton. As the day went on the symptoms got worse and worse. It was to the point it took 5 minutes to catch my breathe so I went to the E.R. thinking I was dehydrated, they put me on iv's did some test as a precaution and about 4 hours later the DR. came back and said I know why you were feeling weak your anemic, your levels are 8.2 and when it gets in the 7's we have to do a blood transfusion. ( a normal woman is between 12-14) And that freaked me out, because I don't like blood. The thought alone made me want to throw up. I found out I was anemic when I was in college trying to donate blood. Actually this is before I even stopped eating meat. You know they prick your finger drop a bit in this water if it sinks you can donate if it floats they have to test it again? Well mine are floaters, I even had someone jokingly say " your trying give blood but I think we need to give you some" At times I do feel fatigue but yesterday it was horrible, I always thought it was because I laid around all the previous day. Any help or suggestions? I did a search and didn't find a similar topic.

  9. My name is Ashland. I am 23 years from Atlanta Ga. Well I am trying to lead a healthy lifestyle which may be hard because I am living in the south. Because yes most of the foods are fried, fried dead, and fried some more. I am currently a vegetarian who eats a lot of junk food such as chips, ice cream, french fries, and other blood pressure raising artary clogging foods. My goals are to maintain a 70% vegan diet and lifestyle. 10% raw vegan and 20% vegetarian diet. I want to incorporate a lot of physical activities into my everyday life, even if its just walking more. But I am a member of my local gym, they have a lot of good programs and classes. I want to take part of at least 1 class a week working my way up to more classes. Going to the gym 4 times a week doing a lot of cardio and strength training. My fitness inspirations are inspired by Brittany Daniel's. Shes an actress and a fitness nut. I read some where online that shes goes to the gym up to 4 days a week and eats raw/vegan (its 70% of her diet). If you guys can google her name. She has a wonderful body. Shes my desktop on my laptop. The inspiration of getting to an ideal true weight. Take care, well be keeping you guys updated!
