I have never been! I am going on a raw vegan retreat Jan 27-Feb 2. Hermosa beach. Luckily I speak spanish pretty well so I can communicate with the natives :) Even though they still will call me a Gringa! haha Is Guanaste nearby?
McDougall plan isn't that bad as long as you're properly hydrating with enough water. the starches tend to soak up more water so you need to drink more. Just think about it this way. You've built up your body fat stores over a long period of time, so as long as you keep the fat low, over time you will burn the fat off. it will take time. excess carbs dont turn into fat so if youre eating high carb plant foods, then you'll be getting mostly carbs. and carbs are our life force. gotta think of it as fuel in your gas tank, if you want to go far and or fast and or strong, gotta put more in the tank. simple sugars=simpler to digest. complex=harder to digest some cooked potatoes at night are not going to hurt your fitness goals assuming you're boiling or steaming them and not cooking them in oil. realize that you are beautiful already. see the light in yourself. be patient and make the small steps everyday towards the bigger picture.
If losing hair was attributed to protein intake then all the guys on youtube going bald from steroid usage wouldnt be going bald....
Hair replacement clinics are popping up all over the western world. Pretty sure its not related to 'protein insufficiency'. ;)
Hair loss is one of the first symptoms of anorexia in women. One of the first symptoms of steroid usage in men. Doesnt happen to all of them but it does to most. Its pretty common i the fitness modeling industry to have fake hair after it started falling out in clumps from all the steroids and starving down for the photo shoots.
What does your body look like at 128lbs though? Here are 2 ladies of pretty similar weight (the girl on the right would weigh more though).
"WEIGHT DOESNT MEAN AS MUCH AS HOW TIGHT THE BUNS ARE!". Too many girls starve down and get a pancake butt. Nothing wrong with that but looking like an 80 year old as a 25 year old....
Are you the one on the right? jk
