That would easily last me 2 months, all the fruit would rot before I could touch even half of it. Insanity. She's pretty in the face, and I'd totally fuck her, but that's so not a compliment anymore.
    Because that was ever a compliment...smdh. Anyway I don't get the friggin hoopla with people calling these girl names or calling her stupid. I don't get how people cannot just agree or disagree with her eating ethos and live it at that. I love her look (and I mean this in the straightestway possible), she has a great head of hair, seems like she would have a sweet personality in real life etc. Yes, she seems a bit priviledged but when the hell did that become a friggin crime? Maybe she is a self -righteous vegan that tries to convert everyone to her ways, I don't know....but the OP pretty much lifted her youtube page and posted it here for some of you to ridicule and call her names and that is bullshit and obviously reflects more on you than this her.

    I personally cannot survive on her diet, raw veganism is not for me, I do not have the time or energy to invest in eating that much a day. I am gradually towing sbhikes way of eating and finding that fat in animal protein and veggies are indeed more satiating. I am still a fan of occassional fruit and find eating it does not cause a spike but makes weight loss slower.

    Leida, I have not been here long enough to know your anticedence eating wise, but from all your posts, it seems nothing ever seems to work for you. Maybe u should see a doctor and figure out what is going on or try the raw as sb recommended.

    I mean it is one thing to debate on raw veganism but must be stoop to belittling and calling people names? So darn Juvenile sometimes I swear..

      Whew, that a hard way to get 155g of protein. I'd much rather have some beef, chicken, and fish. Not to mention eggs, wonderful eggs!

      I think my count is as accurate as piling will allow. It would be neat if she had an actual count or weight to go by, rather than just the picture.

        My ideal was always the Russian ballet dancers or circus acrobats. or something like that 15% gal:


        Miss 18% gets my vote every single time out of those three.


        The other two look like the could only sustain that level of bf for competition week.

          Completely True. Its actually sad to me when i see/hear women trying to endlessly attain a level of bodyfat that fitness competitors and magazine cover models have. those women only look like that for very short windows of time. just for a competition or photo shoot.

              You can't see any muscle at all on the 18% gal. If she had legs and arms like the 15% gal, I am Okay with her abdomen. I find visible shoulder muscle (see that deltoid on the 15% model? DROOL!!!!!) and the absence of muscle obscuring flab on legs to be the best. I am not big on defined stomach, simply flat is fine, but the delts and the quad/ham clear definition = YES, WANT IT, WANTIT, WANTIT!!!!

              BTW, Vegan Gal is very much like the 18% gal, not muscular, simply lean & smooth.

                    I'd prefer the 18% with muscle tone.

                    yes, as my husband has told me: "Instead of lifting weights, what do you think about taking one of those stripper classes?" *Snort* yes master, i live to serve!

                      Actually, one thing that works for me is the non-starchy vegetables, seafood, eggs and meat. No caloric restrictions, no schedules, on IF'ing, no nothing. Feel and act like a champ! Except last time no fruit caused depression 40 days in.

                      I am adding a whole lot of psychological dig-dipping atm from Susan Albers books to be able to cope with the life of limited fruit (I come from Eastern Europenian background so I am conditioned to eat fruit literally by the bucket due to shortages for 9-10 months of the year) + 5HTP for serotonin + a bag of seaweed a week for iodine/thyroid just in case. My doctor said" You are perfect BMI and weight. We'll call you if there is anything abnormal in the BW." I will do it this weekend and see if my sugar went up again. We are in Canada, lol. No prolonged and in-depth convos with a doc!

                        The 18% gal is a suit model with no lifting muscle.
                        I'd like to see the 15% gal with 18-20% fat... THAT would be HOT!

                        Just sayn.

                        • Leida, then you need a new doc. Mine takes time for her patients.

                          As for visible muscle, that depends on the man. My guy likes my quads and biceps.

                            My husband actually loves my shoulders and traps as they are shaping up now, but he is expressly against the ribs sticking out and has the primal attraction to the thighs. (I have to admit that in a certain get up with certain shoes I look erm sumptuous) We make a totally odd couple when we do a gym date. He heads for the treadmill upstairs I ran to the squat rack.

                            I am in Calgary, AB! I am lucky to have a doctor! I tried a new clinic in the new neiborhood, a year in, my new doc left, they could not schedule me for physical for 5 months, scheduled me, after 1 hr wait told me that the doc is not coming and no other doc in the clinic would sub for my 5 min physical(!!!), so I gave up and went to my old doctor who is a specialist in 2 min check-ups. Calgary is CRAZY. I nailed my foot with a frozen primal roast and spend 5 hrs in ER bleeding all over, with 3 people casually asking me if they gave me something for the pain, and venturing away after I told them "no" through gritting teeth. I only managed to get the drugs when they actually operated! In Calgary, to stay healthy you do not get sick.

                            I saw a sports registered dietitian and a nutritionist before, but I only found my problems through reading and research and self-experimentation. The specialists just give you the same advice as CW.

                              Hey, didn't say I wasn't lean looking? I am slim, and getting slimmer at a really pleasing rate for me (had a baby 5mo ago, slimmest I've been in 8yrs now...), I just literally don't have the same bone structure or shape - I'm a bigger, curvier person. Could be just as lean, but I'm always going to be bigger than her. I think some people who aren't her body shape naturally will work themselves into an early grave trying to achieve it....they really need to accept that everyone is different. I know *plenty* of people with her bodyshape who are nowhere near a raw diet!

                              For me I think restriction is what made every other diet/plan I followed fail. Reading mark's recent post about the differences in men and women really brings it home to you - any restriction and women more than men will go into panic mode and try to hold on to resources for the sake of the baby they *might* have.

                              • That sucks, but that is not all of Canada or even Alberta. I'm also in AB and have a great doctor and can generally see her the same week I call for an appointment, sooner if it's urgent.
