  1. I was a vegan for about 5 years. Tried High fat, low fat, Mcdougall, Fuhrman, Graham, Ornish, combinations of those, etc. My skin was at it's all time worst and never got better until I dropped the whole thing.
  2. I use the Aquasana brand. Do a google search for their website. The filters are great and the prices are in the range of what you'll pay anywhere else. Shower heads are easy to install, you just unscrew the old one and then screw the new one on. The thread is universal.
  3. For those bickering about saturated fat, there was a pretty good post on Stephan Guyenet's blog last week with a link to a lot of studies. The reader comments are really good too for the most part. http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.com/2011...t-increase.html
  4. p.s. ketosis occurs from the protein, not fats. Ketosis can be safe for extended periods of time. You're most likely confusing it with ketoacidosis which is mostly experienced by diabetics and can be life-threatening To the OP, have you calculated what your daily caloric intake is? It's hard to tell because your food intake list is a mess, but it looks like you're under 2000 calories a day. That's definitely not enough if you do any sort of physical activity at all. Also, throw the ca
  5. I was vegan for about 4 years. I was a hardcore low-fat raw vegan fanatic for about 2 of those. I was spending about 200$ a week on groceries to get a daily 2500 calorie food intake, lost about 25 pounds ( 140lbs at 6'4") and my acne did not improve one bit. Now that I think about it, everything in my life got WORSE. After 2 years I was deficient in a bunch of vitamins and minerals, my teeth were starting to hurt, the infinite energy I had at first totally plummeted, I avoided all social activ
  6. 1 hour seems like an gigantic waste of time on top of being mind numbingly boring. I'm not a trained professional of anything, but from my own reading and experience I'm convinced that you'll get much more out of less time if you dramatically increase the intensity and reduce the time you spend running. I started sprinting on my elliptical machine with a high resistance setting and could go for 3 minutes before I thought my heart would explode. Since then I've doubled the intensity and can spri
  7. I get about 50 grams of carbs a day from my daily bucket of vegetables and that's it. A paleo style ketogenic diet is the only thing that keeps me clear and the slightest deviation from it will give me a few spots. It's difficult for a few weeks but now I have absolutely no problem sticking to my diet and my health has improved in all aspects. And it's not like I'm starving and restricting my food intake; I eat between 4000-5000 calories a day. Once you quit sugar for long enough, looking at s
  8. Personally I think you'll be better served by keeping your time the same and increasing the intensity instead.
  9. There's 470 grams of carbs in there, most of which come from grains. That's nowhere near standard paleo guidelines. Good for you if it's working out though.
  10. Been there done that. These are very basic things that most people here have already been aware of for a very long time.
  11. That's probably about 1500 calories top. Unless you're a sedentary 100 pound woman, this is just not enough food. You're eating high volume food with an extremely low caloric density.
  12. Seriously? I'm super skinny and wear 34"!
  13. Acrylamides are known carcinogen and are produced when carbohydrate foods are cooked at high temperature. Blame the preparation method, not the food itself. Post WWII japan also introduced refined carbohydrates and other dietary poison in the food supply. What says those aren't to blame? I'm not saying I agree or disagree with whatever you're trying to prove, but overwhelming people with bad articles and random "facts" isn't an effective way of proving your point.
  14. Being in that weight range when you're 6'5" is literally skin on bones. It's irritating especially when you're this tall because not only do you constantly get told that you're skinny, but shopping is a nightmare because nothing fits. I don't even want to count how many times I've been asked if I'm dying of some disease by old ladies. It also sucks when it comes to dating. The women here can deny it all they want, but most people don't want to date a skeleton. It's an aesthetic issue, but there'
  15. I'm 6"4 and I weigh 175 so I can relate. I used to be as low as 150 a few months ago. Always had problems putting weight on no matter I much I ate. Since I gave up being vegan, I just kind of accepted that fat is going to represent a big chunk of my daily caloric intake. I eat about 3500-4000 calories a day now and it's a lot easier than when I was eating buckets of rice and that half the volume of the food I ate was indigestible fiber. I gained 25 pounds in about 2 months and my body fat percen
