Vegan diets?

neither harder or easier. It's just that it may be more challenging to get all your Protein requirements in.

It's no different. I will, however, always dispute the well-worn myth that it's hard to get your Protein in. I've never had an issue. Once you know what foods are your higher protein options (and there are many), it's no more difficult than lacto-ovo diets. There's so much available these days!

It's difficult to say definitively whether it's easier or harder to lose weight following a vegan diet, as it depends on various factors such as the individual's dietary habits, lifestyle, and level of physical activity.

However, some studies suggest that a vegan diet may be effective for weight loss due to its emphasis on whole, plant-based foods that are often lower in calories and higher in fibre compared to animal-based foods. Additionally, a vegan diet may promote greater satiety, making it easier to control portions and reduce overall calorie intake.

That being said, it's important to note that a vegan diet can also be high in calories if one regularly consumes processed or high-fat plant-based foods such as vegan junk food, fried foods, and sugary Snacks. It's also possible to gain weight on a vegan diet if one consumes more calories than they expend through physical activity.

Overall, a balanced vegan diet that emphasizes entire, nutrient-dense plant-based foods and incorporates regular physical activity may support healthy weight loss. However, as with any diet, individual results may vary, and it's important to consult with a healthcare professional before making significant changes to one's diet or lifestyle.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
