    Quoted from RandomGuyOffCL:

    my next half ass thread planned is “who owns their own bubble machine”

    Slow down, Mister. Those bubbles had better not be a petroleum product.

    #252 2 years ago

    This thread has been inspiring to me. I’m
    not a vegetarian but I’m doing it for the next week, to see how I feel.

    #253 2 years ago
    Quoted from PW79:

    Or is it real & I've been manipulated into thinking it's a fake topic?

    It’s both. Wife and I watched “what the health” and decided to try out the vegan thing. I know it’s corny Af to make a life decision after watching a documentary but screw it.

    Truth is after about a month in we both feel much better, many slight ailments have all but dissipated for both of us...Not kidding

    The thread was just me being silly about something I’m seriously giving a shot right now

    Quoted from Mr68:

    Slow down, Mister. Those bubbles had better not be a petroleum product.

    You better watch it...I’ll pull up to your house in my Tesla with some broccoli

    I’m 48 hours into this meat-free diet and I can already feel a difference. Is it normal to get a little more blood flow, if you know what I mean?

    Quoted from swampfire:

    Ask your Doctor for a set of lab tests (blood), and use it as a base line. Liver panel, triglycerides level, etc.

    Check it again after 30-45 days.

    Quoted from iceman44:

    How can you be a fat Vegan?

    Still eat a lot of calories? There's a vegan place here called Doomie's you can get a double "bacon" western cheeseburger and have it made with grilled cheeses as the buns.

    Quoted from swampfire:

    Yes! It is one of the (ahem) biggest advantages to going vegan. Noticeable difference for sure. James Cameron is coming out with a movie about a vegan diet. He has said that men could stop taking Viagra by simply going plant based.

    48 hours seems pretty quick to notice such a change though. Congrats.

    #258 2 years ago

    Beans, corn, and potatoes are pretty calorie dense. It's easy to be a fat vegan.

    #259 2 years ago

    I would never go vegan just to follow a fad. Or because I feel bad for an animal. I understand how nature works. Shit gets eaten every day, whether by man or beast. I will say that there is a lot to be said for good animal husbandry. If you're going to kill and eat something, at least do it in as humane and painless a way as possible. And eat or use every part of the animal you can. I can empathize with the people who cant have dairy and such wanting to find alternatives that still taste like meat or cheese, but if someone doesn't want to eat chicken because it's inhumane, I find it silly to want to try and replicate the taste. And even though I love pretty much all commercial meats and wild game, I can still throw down on all vegetable dishes and be satisfied. I can roast a couple eggplants or smother some cabbage for supper and be totally satisfied with that. I also don't have to have meat with every meal and walk around being all macho about it. I think the back and forth from both sides is really silly considering each is free to follow their own diet. The millennials that I work with say something often, and it's actually something I can agree with them on. They are fond of saying, "You do you and let me do me".

    Pretty sure nobody is asking you to.

    #262 2 years ago

    Why is it silly to want to replicate the taste of chicken? Whether your motivation is to eat healthier, or because you don’t want to take part in the killing of chickens, does that really matter?

    It may also be due to the fact that it's finally skirt weather here in Philadelphia. Day 3...

    I don't think anyone here disagrees with you.

    As a meat eater, I found this thread very informative.

    I love the topic change.

    Quoted from RobT:

    I don't believe I said anyone was. I was just saying I would never follow a diet just because others are doing it. And there certainly is a lot of that going on. Not just for veganism, but for a lot of things. And my feelings are the same concerning the others as well.

    #270 2 years ago
    Quoted from jwo825:

    I was just saying I would never follow a diet just because others are doing it.

    Why do you eat what you eat? Cuz your parents & everyone around you ate a certain way. You followed what they did. OOOOooOOOoooOOOooooooOOOOOoooOOOooooOOoooooh!

    #271 2 years ago

    My Uncle was an Ant eater.

    I actually have a very different diet than my parents. But you're right that when I was a kid I ate whatever they provided. It's kinda what you have to do as a kid.

    My mother breast fed me through a straw. Said she only wanted us to be friends.

    Well you are really going out on a limb to say that people shouldn't do something just because other people are doing it.

    #278 2 years ago

    On bloodflow, polyphenols are definitely worth looking into...found in dark berries...here is my blackberry bush which I have been shaping for a few years, few weeks away from harvest now..can’t wait!

    I don't believe you will find a recommendation for what other people should do in any of my statements. I made one post stating what I believed, not what I thought others should be doing. I hardly think that's going out on a limb for anything and I didn't think it warranted any snarky responses.

    You are right, you didn't say that nobody should do something just because others do it. You simply said that *you* wouldn't do something just because others are doing it. My bad.

    Thanks for your valuable and insightful contribution to the thread.

    No problem. Stick with reading and your comprehension will get there. And then you'll be able to make valuable contributions as well.

    If you could stand to lose some weight, there are other benefits. I don't want to get this thread locked, so it's on the last page of that Trudeau thread from a few months ago.

    Ha, I don't even have to look, I remember that post! I do need to lose about 15 pounds, 30 to make my doctor happy. Day 4 of meatless week, still going strong. But not vegan -- I'm eating cheese too, but in moderation.

    I'm still trying to figure out how a post about losing weight being inversely proportional to penis size locks a pedophilia thread, but whatever. I'm not vegan, but I eat a lot more vegetables. I eat some dairy (milk in my coffee, fetta in my salads, American cheese in the occasional breakfast sandwich). Ultimately, don't eat more calories than you burn in a day, and try to know how many calories you are burning. If you are trying to lose weight, that last 10% is a bitch

    Calorie counting apps are a huge eye opener. We all eat too much, and it's really hard to cut back at first.

    I did really well with calorie counting & exercise a few years back...went from 216 to 179 - and even then, I still had fat on my midsection. I'm back around 200, but strangely most of the new clothes I bought from when I lost weight still fit pretty decently. I need to get back on the weight loss fitness wagon...but it's always something - I'll start, then get sick...something. Bah.

    Maybe due to your BF% going down? That would be my guess.

    The change to dairy free was easy with the exception of milk. I especially love it in my coffee. So far the unsweetened almond milk is my favorite but I'm wondering if anyone has a any suggestions?

    By the way, the bratwurst from Beyond Burger is out now and it is spectacular.

    I'm partial to Flax Milk. I don't drink coffee, so I'm not sure how they pair...but I like it for cereal & recipes.

    Sadly (or is it?) I had to give up coffee nearly 2 years ago now because of stomach issues.

    My wife still drinks coffee and she loves this stuff:

    My grandfather ate real half-and-half in his cereal with a side of bacon...then smoked cigarettes. He had every horrible health problem you could imagine...made it to 84. My other grandparents lived till 97, 97, and 99.

    So, I'm thinkin' if I keep up this healthy livin', I'll make it to 300 or so!!! ....or get hit by a truck.

    A Whole Foods just opened up by me so I checked it out. Never been in one before. Anyway, I tried these two products.

    The sausage tasted pretty good, but admittedly not the healthiest option with a fair amount of saturated fat and sodium. Still, not so bad a version compared to a real polish sausage.

    The veggie burger is a healthy alternative but the texture is not so great and it tastes pretty bland. You really have to dress it up with condiments. If you remember the scene where Clark Griswold tried to eat the burger and it falls apart when he takes a bite, then cousin Eddie says “I don’t know why they call it hamburger helper, it does just fine by itself” that’s basically it.

    I was in Los Angeles last week. I have to say, it's way easier to be a vegan out there than it is in Chicago. There are great restaurants with vegetarian and vegan options EVERYWHERE. My family and I ate at a place near our hotel in Santa Monica called True Food Kitchen. It was awesome! I only wish they had restaurants like that around here.

    And our pizza is better here too. I was not at all impressed with your deep dish pizza, nor New York's cardboard pizza. Our food is awesome.

    I'm afraid I can't agree with you on that one. The next time you are in Chicago, look me up and I will take you to a deep dish pizza place that will knock your socks off.
