    I think you are over thinking shit. Eat unprocessed food, meat, vegs, and fruit. /thread

    Exactly. If you're going to force yourself to go raw vegan, at least do it right and not resort to some nasty hemp protein. With all the processing that shit's gone through, I doubt it qualifies as raw.

    Frankly, I don't care what other people eat as long as I am not told to eat cold grass all day long. I just had my usual warm and cooked breakfast and nobody/nothing in the world can convince me that I should start my day in a cold, ideological way.

    I've seen the pictures you've posted and your other posts. You need to get into counseling to deal with the emotional abuse you suffered as a child. That is the only likely thing to help you have a healthy relationship with food and a better view of your body.

    I just wanted to express my personal experience being a Vegan for 3 years. It initially made me feel fantastic at the beginning with leaning out and energy through the roof. However it never lasted, slowly my body started shifting to increased bodyfat, fatique, and extreme binges. This all took place slowly over the three years, not to mention very expensive with the additional supplements etc. The whole family suffered and it was a little too extreme. I started to research websites because the majority of the posts under "The kind Diet" by Alicia Sylverstones blog community were experiencing very similiar results. Something was wrong if several people are gaining weight and feeling "off" sort of speak that were trying to convert to Vegan lifestyle for maintaining weight and feeling great. Once I researched more and found Primal thanks to an article in the "Oxygen" magazine, I converted a full 360. I'm still trying to recover from the emotional aspects of things like binges because of the Vegan lifestyle so I just wanted to forewarn you that I personally believe that unless it's for ethics, that lifestyle is not sustainable in the long term. and could backfire your goals in the future like it did for me.

    I heard Sally Fallon (no, I don't agree with all her views!) describe the short-term initial improvement in health some people experience when they go vegan with 'A vegan diet is a very cleansing diet, but it's not a rebuilding diet'.

    I agree. Not only overthinking, but overdoing it in general. I don't want to be preachy and start talking about starving children, but something is totally wrong here.

    That's probably what I should do, except I have never seen sprouts. I will just bump up protein higher on all the other days.

    Yes, I will fight this battle for as long as I can, because I know what happens to me when I do NOT. I will be 160 lbs within a year (just like I was after having my baby and not dieting), and 200 lbs within 5 years. It doesn't matter if I would eat clean grass-fed food or artificially sweetened CW, high fat or low fat. I will be fat if I don't work on preventing it from happening. And I don't want to be 160 lbs again. I just... don't, not now. Eventually, yes, I will descend into fat and in all likelihood it will be diabetes that would kill me. But I want a couple of decades at least before the inevitable nightmare happens.

    Make sprouts. You can sprout all beans. All you need is a jar, paper towels, water and natural light.
