    Protein and calories and meals, oh my

    Im going vegan after seeing, hearing about, and reasearching the countless benefits, over a long period of time and I want this. I want to become vegan. Something to consider is that I weightlift and take it kind of seriously. I try to take about 3000-3300 calories a day and 150 grams of protein. I drink whey protein shakes pretty frequently. I need a substitute for that and a diet that is packed with calories. Is this even possible? Do I have to change the amount of calories I eat and amount of protein? Im brand new here so any feedback would be much appreciated, thank you

    Best exercise routines -100+ lbs weight loss?

    I heard that zoloft can cause you to retain water. This makes sense, seeing is my urine is more pungent and yellower. Could this be contributing to my lack of weight loss?

    Body Fat % w dexa scan

    OHSU has a bod pod and DEXA scanner. I have experienced the scanner as part of a research study - not sure if it available to the general public though. The DEXA scanner is cool You lay on a table for about 5 min while the scan happens, and then you can see a really clear image of your bones, muscle and body fat. Im sure that the medical people understand the real value of it, but I was mostly impressed with being able to see my whole body like that after only 5 minutes.

    Dates that don't revolve around food

    I discovered that this morning too. This isnt the first time I have noticed it. Jason, did you go straight to the main index or, like me, did you go to a thread first? Paul
  11. Hey ladies So at the beginning of this year I went to a new OBGYN and she put me on met..I didnt really take it for long before I started looking into weight loss surgery. Fast forward to now...Im 5 months post-op VSG and down 70 lbs. Still have irregular periods, and dont think Im ovulating because of my temp chart but I have had positive OPKs. Ive been thinking about getting back on met to see if it helps with my FREQUENT stalls and hormones, etc...but was kind of worried because Ive lost so much weight Any input? Thanks SW: 247 CW: 176

    Is this my new normal?

    I bought this bike new and I am just finishing my second season on it. I have attached a picture of the work I have put into it. I had very regular tune ups at the shop and kept the bike clean and paid attention to any loose parts. My question is, is this level of work put in normal?

    Pain Medication

    Im coming off the medication now slowly really very clever of the pharmaceutical companies to produce a drug with such devasting withdrawals that you are almost forced back on. I have good days where I am able to use the tools here and mindfulness etc other times Im in such severe distress that nothing helps at all..apparently this is the pattern of withdrawal and nervous system damage from long term use.
