I don't like negative energy, but when you have it, it can be good to release it, lol. ;)
Many of you probably remember Jolita Brilliant. Back when she was on this site and promoting fruits and getting enough calories, I thought we understood each other well, as she also comes from an eating-disordered background like myself. Back then we exchanged PMs and were happy embracing this lifestyle together.
My first "slap in the face" was in my post where I still had a negative body image of myself because of my weight gain. As people here such as Esperanza, Peter, and Chris were very helpful, knowledgeable and supportive, Jolita's post was deleted and then she PMed me saying I shouldn't listen to you and that I should restrict my caloric intake. WTF?! Then she claimed the promotion of thinness hurts her too, but implied losing weight is important for her because it sells. :(
On Facebook I kept seeing regular posts from her as well as pictures where she brags about her weight loss OBSESSIVELY. I'm thinking her mind is saying "Welcome back eating-disorderd mindset!". I unsubscribed from her newsletter as I was/am fed up with her attitude and mindset. It's so sad knowing that she's a "health coach", yeah a "health coach that promotes death".
I thought she couldn't get any more idiotic, but I was wrong! Not only is she bad-mouthing Freelee and DR and 30BaD in general, she is claiming veganism is not good and is now a paleo b$?§&! Needless to say I removed her immediately from my friends list on facebook and remembered to unsubscribe from her Youtube channel. I can only hope her clients realise that she's gone mad and quit seeing her. She may be a coach, but she's not only a coach of death, but a "coach of death AND murder" - really SAD.
She simply couldn't be patient with the fact that she was still doing the metabolic time for her metabolic crime, as Peter always so cleverly puts it. She's simply weak, impatient, SAD etc.
^^There is no way she's going to convince me. 30BaD and its many wonderful members here have helped me so much. I'm proud to be a member here and to finally be on the path of optimal health, happiness and vibrance.
*RANT OVER* :p

Calorie restriction leads to stupidity, such as what she now demonstrates. It's very sad.
She is young. I like to get my advice from the old, sick, previously very fat people.
Not to mention meat is raised on way more grains than a person would need and that 80% of grains produced go into feeding livestock. What's the logic there? lol
Jolita will be back. I mean how you gonna get skinny eating like a 300lb NFL linebacker?
We have strict rules here on 30BaD but we welcome back anyone when they are serious about health, weight loss and fitness again.
That's a good attitude. I hope she wakes up. She's burning so many bridges right now...
she said it
'my getting a six pack is more important than compassion to life and meat will work, i like you, your wrong, get a life, your crazy'
o and she also said she has been sneaking eggs this whole time so never eating vegan. i think that video she made of kapi could see threw her sham.
lol i did try to help her but no it didn't work
That's really sad she was being nasty in PMs. Something must of triggered it for her to really lose it and be mean, not you in particular obviously, but something. I wonder if all the moodiness/ irritability was caffeine based because that's what it looks like at just a glimpse of the videos, willing to bet she has caffeine and is sleep deprived.
Yeah, I'm personally no fan of 6-packs at all.
I can only hope she comes to her senses and realizes eating meat and eggs will get her nowhere.
I'm with you there as well.
Lastly, we need not provide a stage and a mic for Jolita or others who fall off the wagon and turn 180deg. Let her sort out her own health, while we keep focused on what we're doing and the lifestyle we're living. :)
I'm not trying to be mean. I was just upset with what she was trying to convince me with and others as well and I just needed to let out some steam. Of course I will keep doing what I'm doing. :)
