a lara bar, a bowl of berries and grapes, a salad and a smoothie doesn’t sound like a lot at all! you’ve only been doing it for two weeks so you probably aren’t eating as much as you could/should be eating, why don’t you try eating dates or something to get more calories? You should be feeling full and satisfied after every meal! But if you really aren’t happy, maybe try raw till 4?
That exact same thing happened to me when I started eating more cooked foods for dinner and more calories, it sucks and I can understand your frustration because I’ve been there and I’m still going through that now. Maybe now that it’s winter you’re just not working out as much and your body is holding onto a few extra pounds? Don’t go back to restricting, I’m sure in the summer you will lose all that weight again <3
thank you :)
it’s just harder to digest and there’s no need to
*gets the urge to delete all my social network accounts, drop out of school and live in the woods*
you can’t just thoreau your life away like that
My followers are not the ones who need to get a grip, they are all incredibly educated and no I am not saying you aren’t, but you are educated in the health of animals when they are unwell. Vegans are educated in all aspects of food, we do immesnse amounts of research to deal with people who are going to shit on us about our lifestyle to make them feel better about their own. We look at everything, including the diets of animals. I mean what an animal does in its own time is its own business. But we have no right to enslave torture and murder animals for our animals meals if they can thrive and survive on a vegan diet, which most can.
Remember you work for the animal health industry, one that is sponsored and paid to promote most generic pet food brands. Most pet food is made with ground up dogs and cats that have been euthanize at shelters, its also made with all the toxic and bad meats that have been recalled and discontinued because it isn’t safe for consumption. There are a lot of vets who promote a vegan diet. Why is it that if pet food is so perfect, dogs have diabetes, cancers, thyroid issues, etc?
Cats are carnivores I will never disagree with that, cats are one of the exceptions. Cats continue to kill birds, and mice when they are domesticated because that is a part of them, they are carnivores. Dogs don’t, they are so domesticated these days that some dogs couldn’t hunt to save their lives. Dogs are omnivores and can thrive on a vegan diet. If you need some more examples check out the vegan zombie, 40 below fruity, and gary yourofsky on youtube who feed their dogs vegan diets.
Premium veterinary foods are not made by veterinarians, they have just as many recalls and problems as regular pet foods, its just more expensive and the vet clinics get money for promoting it. It’s a business, be more cautious and be suspicious, if someone is profiting big off of something you should probably do your own research.
"this is what these animals eat in the wild" NOPE
Far from it my friend. These animals are far from hunters from being so domesticated. This meat is often cooked…animals don’t cook their food. It’s got a ton of extra artificial vitamins and nutrients added…also not found in the wild unless there’s a tree that drops iron supplements from it that I don’t know about. They also don’t find little round pieces of kibble that have a “perfect balance” of meat and vegetables in it. They eat what they find and they survive. The animal foods you buy in the grocery stores and pet stores is nothing like it is found in nature, it is the farthest thing from their natural diet. Feeding them whole foods is far closer to what they would be eating.
A plant based diet is ‘unhealthy’ when it’s about the animals, and healthy when it’s about getting fit or getting into shape for yourself.
It only has worth and gets approval when it is for human benefit, and that is sad and disgusting.
