    New Vegan; Diarrhea?!

    I think most people would say you are experiencing the side effects of Detox. I am not entirely convinced that that is a real thing. but I think anything is possible and if anyone was a good candidate for experiencing the side effects of detox - it's you. You said you weigh 320, and weight...

    That is a pretty broad request. Would you mind being a little more specific? However, I think joining the Vegan Forum and participating in the forum is a good start. :)

    It's not just Barnard that writes about that. All of our favorite PB doctors do. I think I first heard that in the documentary Forks Over Knives. then again in What The Health. I'm pretty sure it was a chapter in Eat To LIve and/or How Not To Die. and Marc, if you haven't seen those...

    Write a headline for when pb is too common to report

    We haven't added to this in a while. Of course, this whole thread was just tongue in cheek. But I'm a little saddened that my very first "prediction" is now less likely to happen. On March 1, I wrote Smithfield Foods Declares Bankruptcy CEO laments, "We Thought Plant-Based Was Just A Fad"...

    Are you vegan and take Vitamins/Supplements? If so read below

    Yeah, you have to include a none of the above choices. I don't live in the UK and none of those markets or cafes exist in California.

    Darn. I wish they hadn't taken down that tutorial... Anyway. In googling around i found a whole lot of step by step directions. 30 minutes ago i was complaining about Cronometer's lack of instructions/ directions. I have to take this back. I'm not sure if this is new or I just never figured out...

    Oh! Rice and potatoes and grains are great. But they have to be unprocessed or unrefined. Instant oatmeal is refined. You want the "old Fashioned oats" are good enough. They take 3 minutes in the microwave. Steel-cut oats are a little better but are a bit of a pain to cook. However, you can cook...

    CronOmeter isn't really all that hard to use, but there is a marked lack of directions. There used to be a great short instructional video but after they made the last update they took it down. Let me see if anyone in the YouTube community has filled the void.

    Do you have an InstantPot? I bought my InstantPot last Christmas, and I wouldn't say it totally changed my life but I really like it. The vegan forum has a section on recipes and you might want to look at that too. This recipe is for 8 servings. I makeup 8 one-cup servings in Tupperware or...

    This week it has been so hot, I have been having big salads for dinner. You can add beans, sunflower seeds, almond slivers, to your salads for protein. I know a lot of the WFPB diets recommend having big salads almost daily. No cooking is required (although you get tired of all the chopping)...

    I really don't know. I wonder if anyone knows. However, on Cronometer before I added "my stuff", your diet was almost 80% carbs. 77/14/9. I think the WFPB doctors recommend carbs to be in the 40 - 60% range. So maybe we need to give your doctor some credit. Maybe it is the carbs. BTW once i...

    Scientists are re-thinking animal cognition

    According to the Dogs with Jobs book, no one really understands how dogs can predict seizures. And very few dogs seem to be able to do this. One theory is that they can smell some kind of blood chemistry change. just checking on that and I found this
