    Hah. I read Shape regularly about five years ago -- I even had a subscription. I remember they had a "Sugar Diet" once. Because, see, you can have your cake and lose weight, too!!!! Isn't that awesome, grrlz????? OMG KIM KARDASHIAN!!!!

    Ahem.

    It was an entertaining diversion when I was on the treadmill (this was five years ago, after all), but after a while I got tired of the bullshit science studies, constant pandering to cosmetics and clothing, and celebrities I didn't care about. Can't say I miss it.

Pelleted food was made for putting weight on fryer rabbits quickly. Fat pet bunnies are no bueno!
    I would consider giving them an all greens diet, but the pellets are mostly just to help me not go completely broke. They're on Oxbow now, and they don't get a ton of it, just enough to keep their bellies full when the bank account gets low. It's hard taking care of the amount of animals I have on a college budget, but we manage. Besides, my largest rabbit, Rogue tends to be picky with greens. I have to be careful because if I give her something like parsley with dinner one night, she'll suddenly decide that it's all she wants to eat for two weeks. The pellets help balance her out a little bit, especially since she's the very opposite of fat, I struggle to keep her weight on. My other rabbit Bandit is a mini rex and tends to want to be fat, but he does well on the Oxbow food. You're right though, cheaper rabbit food does cause weight problems at least in the rex. I can't make Rogue gain weight at all, and I'm not sure if it's her breed (unknown) or what. She's very healthy and the vet doesn't think there's anything really wrong, she just burns though it faster. She's 9 lbs of lean rabbit muscle, and she likes to use it to tell you when you're doing something wrong! Ouch.

    My rabbit will eat any table scraps (we only feed him bunny friendly stuff)
    Incomplete list below:


    Bunny Safe Plants
    Safe Cultivated Vegetables: Artichokes, Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery (chopped into small pieces - long strands in celery can choke a bunn - thanks, Lisa in Perth!), Chicory, Corn-on-the-Cob, Dandelion, Horseradish, Kales, Kohlrabi, Lucerne, Maize, Parsley, Strawberry, Spinach, Sunflowers, Strawberry and Raspberry Leaves.
    Safe Herbs: Blackberry (general bunny tonic), Bramble, Mint, Parsley (another excellent general bunny tonic), Raspberry Leaves (general tonic), Rosemary, Sage, Strawberry Leaves, Thyme.
    Safe Wild Plants: Bramble, Bindweed, Burnet, Butterbur, Cow Parsnip or Hogweed, Coltsfoot, Convolvulus, Chickweed, Geum, Goosegrass, Crosewort or Maywort, Dandelion, Dock (not seeding), Groundsel, Goutweed, Hawkweed, Heather, Hedgeparsley, Knapweed, Knotgrass, Lucerne, Mallow, Mustard, Nipplewort, Plaintain, Sea Spinach, Shepherd’s Purse, Sour Dock or Sorrel, Thistles, Trefoil, Vetches or Tares, Watercress, Yarrow.
    A couple of warnings on wild plants: firstly, if you are going to feed your bunny wild plants, be sure that you definitely know for certain the type of plant you are choosing, as plants go by different common names in various parts of the world - best to err on the side of caution, and only feed plants which you know the names of for certain, or which you know for certain are bunny safe; secondly, be aware that, if you pick plants from public places, or any place where you personally have not grown them yourself, you must be absolutely certain that they have not been contaminated by pesticides or other chemicals - again, best to err on the side of caution.
    Safe Flowers: Asters, Borage, Calendula, Carnations, Centaurea, Daisies, Galega, Geranium, Geum, Helenium, Hollyhock, Honesty, Lupins (not seeds), Mallow, Marguerites, Marigolds, Michaelmas Daisies, Nasturtium, Rose, Stocks, Sunflowers.
    Safe Trees: wood prunings from fruit trees, with the exception of stone fruit trees (again also ensure they have not been sprayed with pesticides or chemicals), most deciduous trees (but not Oaks), Blackberry, Rose, Raspberry Canes (with all canes, beware of thorns, of course).
    Hay (including grasses: Kentucky Blue Grass, Fescue, Timothy, Lucerne, Rye Grass, Yarrow), Dandelion (sparingly - a powerful diuretic).
    Bread can be fed, but is not ideal and only dried bread, never fresh - no bread is ideal for bunnies, because of the yeast and the highly processed ingredients.

    Dangerous for bunnies - avoid these:
    Dangerous Cultivated Vegetables - always avoid: Cabbage, Lettuce, Mangold, Parsnips, Potato Tops, Swede Turnips, Tomato Leaves.
    Dangerous Wild Plants - always avoid: Arum, Anemone, Bluebell, Buttercup, Bryony, Christmas Cherry, all Clovers, Colchicums or Meadow Saffron, Comfrey, Corn Cockle, Celandine, Deadly Nightshade, Docks (in seed), Dog Mercury, Figwort, Fool’s Parsley, Foxglove, Honeysuckle, Iris, Jasmine, Lords and Ladies, Ground Ivy, Hemlock, Henbane Poppies, Oxalis, all Poppies, Scarlet Pimpernel, Spurges, Toadflax, Traveller’s Joy, Wandering Jew, Yew.
    Dangerous House Plants: Arum Lilies, Bead Plant, Christmas Cherry, Cineraria, Daffodils and all bulb plants, Devil’s Ivy, Dieffenbachia, Fairy Primrose, Hedera, all Ivy, all Jasmines, Leopard Lily, Monstera (Fruit Salad Plant/Swiss Cheese Plant), Miltonia, Poinsettia, Pothos, Primula Obconica, all Primulas, Solanum, String of Beads, Tradescantia, Wandering Jew or Wandering Sailor, Winter Cherry, Zantedeschia.
    Dangerous Flowers - always avoid: Acacia, Aconite, Antirrhinum, Arum, Anemone, Cineraria, Clover, Columbine, Daffodil, Dahlia, Delphinium, Feverfew, Gypsophila, Helleborus, Honeysuckle, Hyacinth, Iris, Jasmine, Larkspur, Lily of the Valley, Linarias, Lobelia, Love-in-a-Mist, Monkshood, Oxalis, all Poppies, Primroses, Primula Obconica, all Primulas, Snowdrop, Snowflake, Tulips, all bulbous plants, and all flowers which grow from bulbs, are poisonous.
    Dangerous Trees - always avoid: most evergreen trees and shrubs, Acacia, Box, Elder, Beech, Gorse, acorns, seeds, Ivy, Laburnum, Oak, Flowering Plum Trees, all stone fruit trees, Snowberry.

    I think you forgot plastic litter boxes in the "Do not eat!" list. I just can't get Bandit to understand that...we go through maybe one litter box every six months because he chews the sides down. I give him wooden and flavored sticks and everything, I think he just likes the fact that the plastic is kinda chewy.

    I even tried spraying that Bitter Apple stuff on the sides so he wouldn't do that.

    He just licked it all off. O.O We never said he was smart. Just cute.

    Me chatting with my friend last night:

    Me: I just made the best dinner ever. It was so delicious!
    Friend: What did you have?
    Me: Well you know I'm moving soon so I am cleaning out my ice box. I made pork meat balls yesterday but I saved the fat. I defrosted thin sliced beef seasoned it and cooked it in the pork fat. Then I took the beef n pork fat and put a few spoon fulls on my veggies.
    Friend: Eating a lot of meat isn't good for you. It causes cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
    Me: ... *facepalm*
    Height: 5'2"
    Starting weight: 180lbs
    Current weight 130lbs

    i just had a friend tell me eating meat was bad too the other day! I didn't really respond. lol
    I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

    You're never going to get to the top of the stairs if you don't walk up them.

    It must be going around. Was there a news story or something this week? During lunch the other day, a friend told me I ate too much meat and would get cancer. I told her that was why I could squat more weight than she could. Interestingly, she didn't have anything to say to that. :P

    It's one of those days....

    The woman in the cubicle next to me is pouring water into a cup - one of my coworkers asked her what she is doing, and she explained. Apparently, she measures out exactly how much water she drinks order to ensure she gets 64 ounces every day. I knew she measured out her food, carefully counting and tracking the calories in her morning oatmeal and mid-day M&Ms, but water, really? I can't even imagine being that obsessive....
