Current Weight:(19 Dec 14) 142.8 lb
Goal Weight:130.0 lb
following: VeganLinz's own diet
performance: losing 1.1 lb a week

Although I've been a member here for awhile, I stopped recording food and exercise when I reached my target weight and needed a break from what was becoming obsessive recording of food intake and activity. Well, now I am a new first time mommy and need to get back into mindful eating and exercise! I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl in July 2011. Throughout my pregnancy, I battled morning sickness and lethargy. In short, my whole exercise routine and food plan was thrown out the window. I remained vegetarian thoughout my pregnancy, but completely stopped exercising. Luckily, I've dropped most of the 24 lbs I gained during pregnancy, but I'm still having trouble with those last 5 lbs. It's also been a struggle to fit in exercise with a newborn.

Other stuff about me: I'd like to get back into jogging and weightlifting. I've been vegan for 4 years, and vegetarian 6 years before that. Feel free to email me any time if you have questions about diet!

I hate restaraunts...
Restaurants pack a punch by hyper-flavoring their food. They know that fat, sugar, and salt give food the kind of flavor that people crave and will keep them coming back for more. Like a drug, people get hooked on their product. But to make people feel ok about eating at their establishments, they go so far as to lie about their entrees and present some items as Healthy Choices. That way, they can draw in the widest spectrum of people.

I go out to eat about once a week, and I stick mainly to ethnic restaurants. Check out www.healthydiningfinder.com for some good tips to ordering at restaurants.

Natural Peanut Butter?
Maranatha No Stir products are awesome! Oh, and they also sell Maranatha brand peanut and almond butters at COSTCO/SAMS CLUB. I was delighted to find a large jar of almond butter for $6.50. That stuff easily runs $10 in the grocery store.

Turkey products....Is this to good to be true?
I'm sorry if I came across as insulting. That was certainly not my intention. The bottom line is - it's good be informed about your food choices, and it seems that all of us here have that common goal, right? You wanted to know what to consider when choosing to eat turkey, and my point was that there are a lot of things that go into what we eat, and knowing how our food is produced is an important aspect of health and well-being. Also, veggie burgers are a low fat and nutritional alternative to the meat variety.

Regarding physicians - most doctors have about 1 hour of nutrition education...they are not nutritionists. Over the last 9 years, I have done extensive reading regarding meat, and while I'm not a licensed nutritionist either, I can say for a fact that there is no getting around the negative effects of saturated fat. That's what clogs the arteries, leading to heart attack, stroke, hypertension etc etc. Saturated fat only comes from meat. For more information, I highly recommend a book called "The China Study" by T. Colin Campbell.

Turkey products....Is this to good to be true?
Veggie burgers have less calories, less saturated fat, and are all around better for your health...not to mention they taste much better! There are so many options out there, but I'd recommend Boca or Dr. Praeger's. Another drawback of turkey burgers would be the horrid ways turkeys are being farmed and killed on a massive scale (300mil/year). If you are ever interested in opening your eyes to even more "drawbacks", check out this site http://www.goveg.com/factoryFarming_turkeys_farms.asp.
