Ok..I feel like I'm going to be destroyed for asking this lol..but this is my first week transitioning into this diet and I'd like to do it right so I don't give it a bad name (my parents think I'm…Continue
"I really don't think I've been calorie restricting too much before this diet..only at the start of this summer have I started counting calories and trying to get about 1200 a day. Before that, I wasn't exercising AT ALL and…"
"The sodium in the soup may be causing your body to retain water... Instead, try making a raw tomato gazpacho (use celery for a salty flavor) and then add the plain cooked lentils maybe. I did that when I was transitioning, and it was really good.…"
"Thanks guys! I really appreciate the responses! :) Do you guys think that having the cooked soup makes a huge difference? or is it fine in transition? I'm partially still in scared of calorie mode lol I've overcome…"
"Yeah if you eat more fruit you will lose fat. This is not calorie restriction. You do not restrict calories to lose weight. You eat your species-specific diet and you exercise. What species are you, and what's your favorite kind of…"
"The MINIMUM for women is 2500; and believe me, eat at least this amount to feel the full benefits of this lifestyle.
I tried eating 80/10/10 on less calories than that (2300), and it really affected my sleep; for WEEKS I had insomnia issues,…"
"Unless you are six years old 100 calories is no where near what your body needs. There are anorexics who only eat 1000 calories a day. It is absolute starvation and sets a person up for malnutrition/deficiences. I hope your parents are able to…"
Ok..I feel like I'm going to be destroyed for asking this lol..but this is my first week transitioning into this diet and I'd like to do it right so I don't give it a bad name (my parents think I'm crazy and I'd like to prove them wrong with some good results! both of them think I shouldn't be eating more than 1000 cals u_u). I've heard over and over to eat until you're full on this diet, as much fruit as you want. I've heard that I won't gain weight eating only fruit. HOWEVER, I would like…See More

I've been a vegetarian for about 3 years now and recently switched to vegan for ethical reasons. I've always been active and was a dancer for about 15 years, dancing at least 15 hours a week. Now I'm in nursing school and for my first year I didn't exercise at all and ate terrible. BUT this summer I've started to work out again and feel so much better, so I've decided that as long as I'm eating a vegan diet, it might as well be the healthiest possible :) I've seen some great 80/10/10 results, and while I'm not ready to give up cooked food yet I'm interested in slowly transitioning to at least mostly raw fruits and veggies :)

I would like to feel healthier and look healthier. Even when I was a dancer I didn't have the toned body I desired. Now that I'm working out more I feel that it's possible but I'm struggling with getting rid of some stubborn fat (about 10 pounds..that being said, I'm well aware that I could lose the fat and still be the same weight with muscle and am totally fine with that). I'm not looking for instant results by any means, but would like to know that what I'm eating won't put on more fat and will hopefully increase my energy! :D
