Scan0605072334 thumb Before + AfterI hesitate to call this page my “Before and after” because I really don’t think there is an after. My journey to health is just that – a journey – and each year has its ups and downs and different challenges along the way.Scan0605072329 thumb Before + After One thing I do know for sure is that I’m at a much better place than I used to be. From the age of 11 or 12, I struggled with an eating disorder until my mid-twenties.000 0001 thumb Before + After I would restrict my intake too low, over-exercise, and engage in binge eating. As a result, my weight – and mood – went up and down over the years.megandange thumb Before + After I had amenorrhea for a couple years because my body fat was too low to function. It’s a common misconception that you have to be deathly thin to have an eating disorder. If you saw me, you probably wouldn’t have thought that I was suffering as much as I was. Eating disorders come in all shapes and sizes and much of the grief is mental.

After entering recovery and getting professional help, I’m now at a place where I don’t count calories or restrict my intake. I eat a plant-based diet that makes me feel amazing and I do activities that I enjoy, not to burn calories. I’ve experienced a huge shift in my perspective over the past 4 years and I finally love life again. Food used to be the enemy, but now’s it’s a huge source of pleasure in my life. I no longer feel the desire to binge eat like I used to because my body doesn’t feel deprived. I still struggle with a negative mindset at times, but I’m better at dismissing those thoughts and sticking on this healthy & happier path.

Here are some pictures that document my journey over the past 10+ years:

Last year of high school:

My weight was steady around 125 pounds. I met Eric, my highschool sweetheart, when I moved to Ontario from New Brunswick with my mom.

We started dating just a month after I began at my new school. It was puppy love that blossomed into a real, beautiful, can’t-be-without-each other- love. I always say the reason I moved to Ontario was to meet my soul-mate. :)

2003 (2nd year university):

I had gained about 20-25 pounds since 1st year university. My highest weight was 148 pounds.

My eating disorder, something I had been struggling with since 12 years old, surfaced a lot in 1st and second year university. Exam stress, living in a dorm, and new social opportunities led to late-night binges, alcohol, and unhealthy cafeteria food.

Need vegetarian diet

2006-10-05 11:08:29 by katertot

Hello,
I am trying to lose some weight (20ish lbs). I am wokring out 5 times a week and I am going to begin seeing a trainer to help me stay on track.
I know that to lose weight you must also change your diet. I am a vegetarian (no meat, chicken, etc... once in a great while I will have fish). My dilema is that as a vegetarian, I end up eating a ton of pasta and cheese and stuff. I try to eat lots of salads too... but usually I have salad for lunch and by dinner I am burnt out on "bunny-rabbit food".
Does anyone have any book recomendations for a good vegetarian weight loss diet? I dont want a crash diet, I want to change the way I eat in a healthy way so I can lose weight now and maintain my weight later

Diet, more weights, intense cardio

What you do depends on your goals (lose 20-30#) as well as your background, which you omit. How about your age, sex, height, weight, fitness history, and any health, injury, or illness concerns?
For a good overview of fat loss, see Alwyn Cosgrove's Hierarchy of Fat Loss.
Note that nutrition is the first (and second) factor. As a vegetarian you risk inadequate protein, and excess high-glycemic carbs. While I advocate eating natural/organic and unprocessed foods, there's a place (IMO) for meat, or at the least dairy and eggs in a diet. Try shooting for a 40/30/30 (or 30/40/30) carb, protein, fat balance (by calories), eating 6x daily, and maintaining around 500-1000 calories deficit over expenditure (best monitored by tracking your body fat percentage over time)

There are plenty of vegetarian diet plans

That are well-thought out and healthy and provide you with more than enough protein from vegan sources. I know people are pushing meat, but it's not necessary unless you want to add it to your diet.
Here's a list of some diet plans that have worked well for vegetarians I know. They all follow different styles, but they are well-planned for vegetarians and provide enough protein, iron, B12:
-Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman
-The McDougall Program for Maximum Weight Loss by John McDougall
-Thrive Diet by Brendan Brazier
-Macrobiotics

Weight loss tips?

2004-12-14 18:06:22 by fattyboombalatty

I recently hit the big 3-0, and I have gotten quite large. I've never been overweight before, and it SUCKS!!! I am male, 5ft8in and I weigh 200lbs!!!! My build is such that my ideal weight is around 160-170lbs. I'm a mesomorph (ie short and squat), and I'm rather muscular under that layer of fat. Although it may sound strange, 200lbs on me manifests as a slight gut. Nonetheless, the psychological impact of weighing 200lbs is not good.
I know I should eat less and work out. That much is obvious. I guess I'm looking for a specific diet or routine, because I'm new to this weight-loss thing
