  1. i went through this a few weeks ago, about 6-8 weeks into going vegan. It will eventually get better. What i did was just eat some veggies/fruits that had less fiber and slowly added the beans back in


    Good to hear.I'm looking to incorporate a lot of white rice in my diet but i had problems with it in the past, it made me sleepy because of the insulin spike.

  2. I noticed when i eat a food that is rich in fiber i get very Bloated.If i eat for example 100 grams of adzuki beans i don't get bloated much but if i eat around 180 grams of adzuki or lentils i'm about to pop! I have to eat a lot in order to gain weight, is there any solution for this? Will my body adjust to all this fiber?


    p.s. I started eating beans and lentils recently

  3. Fasting is great.I usually do a 2 day fast with water only.It really cleans the body.


    11 Health Benefits of Fasting


    Posted by Mush Panjwani on August 23, 2009


    I found enormous amounts of material when I started looking for the health benefits of fasting. It seemed that every expert in medicine, health and fitness had something to say about the benefits of fasting. But the following piece from Dr. Cinque summarizes it all very well:


    Fasting promotes detoxification. As the body breaks down its fat reserves, it mobilizes and eliminates stored toxins.

    Fasting gives the digestive system a much-needed rest. After fasting, both digestion and elimination are invigorated.

    Fasting promotes the resolution of inflammatory processes, such as in rheumatoid arthritis.

    Fasting quiets allergic reactions, including asthma and hay fever.

    Fasting promotes the drying up of abnormal fluid accumulations, such as edema in the ankles and legs and swelling in the abdomen.

    Fasting corrects high blood pressure without drugs. Fasting will normalize blood pressure in the vast majority of cases, the blood pressure will remain low after the fast, if the person follows a health-supporting diet and lifestyle.

    Fasting makes it easy to overcome bad habits and addictions. Many people have overcome tobacco and alcohol addictions by fasting, and even drug addictions. Fasting rapidly dissipates the craving for nicotine, alcohol, caffeine and other drugs.

    Fasting clears the skin and whitens the eyes. It is common to see skin eruptions clear while fasting, and the whites of the eyes never look so clear and bright as they do after fasting.

    Fasting restores taste appreciation for wholesome natural foods. People say that their taste buds come alive after fasting and that food never tasted so good.

    Fasting is the perfect gateway to a healthful diet and lifestyle. Going on a fast gives you the motivation and enthusiasm to make a fresh start.

    Fasting initiates rapid weight loss with little or no hunger. Most people are surprised at how little desire for food they have while fasting.

  4. People love to overplay soy being bad. I eat organic non gmo which is good. Very bland b though. Beans and lentils are great for protein if you dont want soy.


    Is it because of dairy industry to supress soy as a dairy alternative thus making more than 90% of the soy worlwide GMO? i am not sure the soy is really bad.It seems most people on this boards here use a lot of soy.

  5. Typical withdrawal effects may include anger, depression
    If I had to give up seitan, I'd be angry and depressed, too


    isnt seitan like pure gluten? Gluten is an opiate similar to caffeine,alchohol,drugs.As weird as it sounds its true.

    My symptoms have improved now,cant wait to finally get it out of my system.

  6. That's weird, I gave up gluten for a couple of months and nothing out of the ordinary happened to me. Can I ask why you gave it up?




    Some of the comments from people on facebook regarding going gluten free.I gave it up because i am focusing my diet on more raw foods than before, gluten is a toxin and grains that contain gluten are nothing but detimental to our health.Gluten is a "weird protein" that "we are not engineered to digest,"



  7. I went gluten free about a week ago and had painfull detox symptoms for a few days.Right now i still have very weird symptoms such as:

    1.cold hands, sometimes feet.They get warmer when i eat more.Big vein in my left and right hand

    2.tingling in arms(left arm to be exact)

    3.mood swings


    5.low sex drive

    6.apathy,lack of motivation

    7.fatigue during the day

    8.mild headaches

    9.bad sleeping patterns

    10.aching bones and joints

    11.looking anemic



    I didn't have any this symptoms when i consumed grains with gluten.

    Could this be lack of vitamin B, zinc or is it just gluten withdrawal symptoms??

    p.s. i drink lots of water so i know it's not dehydration.Can someone help, i don't like these symptoms one bit!

  8. Are lentils edible raw? 100 grams of raw lentils has 26 grams of protein while cooked lentils have only 9 grams.3 times less.


    I recall having read somewhere that you shouldn't eat raw lentils because they contain anti-nutritional factors such as saponins, enzyme inhibitors, and lectins that interfere with or prevent nutrient absorption. Some of them are water soluble and can be dealt with by soaking, but for the most part you can only destroy them with heat.


    Also, just to be clear; 1 cooked lentil doesn't actually have 3 times less protein, it's just that they expand so much when you cook them... but yea, 3 cups of lentils is a pretty serious portion.


    just ate 100g of lentils with potatoes.

    Damn i had difficulty breathing aftewards.What gives?

  10. Hey nice another me out there haha im 6'2'' about 157 lbs. working on getting bigger though. I lost a bit last year, I think due to stress mostly. The thing I would say about vegan protein being expensive, its true. I live in NY where everything is expensive and vegan protein is definitely not an exception. However I came to a conclusion that lead me to a decision a few months back. Good quality food needs to be a priority. We have nothing if we don't have our health. I used to think hemp seeds 12 dollars a lb no way, and then buy a 6-pack of beer for $10. I still drink don't get me wrong. But when I'm low on cash I know where my priorities are at. I spend way too much on things I don't need and pass up on things that I should have for my health because it seems expensive. Waying out how important it is for me to be fit and also how much medical bills cost if I get ill; I've decided for me its worth to fork out the cash for things like hemp seed, vega protein powder, chia seeds, etc.

    That's my two cents,






    thanks for a lightning fast response!!Well i'd go for more weight as well but if manage to get to 151 i'll be the happiest man alive.

    What about soy, i have never eaten it before but heard lots of bad stuff about it and it's connection with estrogen.Can i eat fermented one?

    p.s. I have heard that Vega proteins are good, do you have any links? The site is a bit confusing

  11. Hello all.Well to cut the long story short, i have switched to a vegeterian diet in april 2011 and then to a vegan diet in june.Only a few weeks ago i started to a completely gluten free diet.Still having detox symptoms from it,that thing is like the worst drug!!!The symptoms were insane for a few days,i thought my organs were failing.The problem now is that i have a VERY hard time gaining weight and not only that.Most of my weight ends up in my belly.I'm a 100% ectomorph(skinny as hell ) 6'2'' at around 143-146 pounds! My goal is to have a lean belly with 150-152 pounds.Before a vegeterian diet i ate normal animal protein and had abs when i was at my highest weight which was 176! My arms are my biggest problem, i will look to buy some weights and start lifting at home.Since i'm from Europe we don't have much plant proteins and the ones that exist are way too expensive.Hemp protein for example.I would buy myofusion but that protein isn't very veganish so that would be like cheating .
