I did not become a vegetarian/vegan to be a role model. And I did not join this message board to become a role model. I have enough problems with food and my body functions that I don't need to count every carlorie or measure every portion size...which is a large part of disordered eating habits for some of us. And it's obsessive to have everyone who posts what they eat do so in order to make sure their daily intake falls within someone's idea of 'enough calories'. I've read others saying how they almost have to lie about how much they eat just to post in these threads and that's just sad. It's also sad that two other threads have been shut down because there was too much picking on other people's food choices and arguing over what is considered ok to post. These threads should be fun, but they aren't when there's so much pressure to post correctly.

*sigh* I didn't anything about counting every calorie, or measuring every portion. As for "someone's idea of enough calories", I can speak only for the mod staff in saying that it's not just "our idea", but the WHO, AMA, etc. There has been problems in another thread, yes. One however, was closed just because the threads were basically duplicates. The ONE "rule" (in the daily food log) is to post enough calories to be above the starvation diet level (about 1200 calories). Age, size, etc. aren't really factors in this, as most anyone (unless there's some medical condition) will not thrive on fewer calories than this. It's not like the mods are just picking some random amount.

If I want to post that I had 'rice and vegetables' for dinner do I really have to post how much I ate and what specific vegetables/ingredients I used, if I don't feel like it? That's silly. And Jen, it's not just the mods who do this, and I was not speaking about the mods specifically, and this was not some kind of 'attack on the mods' so no need to go into mod-martyr-mode on me. I know you all do a lot of good things and keep this board running but that does not negate the problems that come from too much micro-managing in certain threads.

I didn't say it was *just* about the mods, but your comment earlier came very shortly after the posts were deleted, if it was directed at least in part to the moderators, then perhaps you should reconsider the phrasing of the post. I'm not generally a mod-martyr type of gal, but this issue (food logs, etc.) has been a pain in the ass for far too long. Being called (or insinuated or whatever) to be a calorie nazi is offensive and mean, and I have every right to dislike it. Deleting two posts from a thread is hardly micro-managing.

What may be 'unhealthy' for you, may be the best that another can do within their individual circumstances.

Again, regarding "unhealthy", it's just my opinion, but what is generally considered healthful by health organizations etc.



If you want to continue this discussion further, let's start a new thread in Community Assistance. I'm tired of PMs, reports, etc. on food logs. I mean really, there are A LOT of issues. If there's some way to hammer out an agreement, I'm fine with that.

You might not have joined the board to be a role model but you need to understand that this forum is accessible to everyone. I moderate a healthy eating forum and I constantly have to monitor food diary threads because I don't want visitors to think extremely bad examples are okay. I've had to ban members from posting in there. It really isn't me being a nazi, it's me recognising that it's not just members who take note but that EVERYONE has access to it, and as a moderator I feel that it is MY responsibility. I've had members slowly reducing their intake until they are eating little or nothing at all, it's not fun to read and it's not nice to feel like it's partly down to you for not acting sooner.



It's really very difficult to consume less than 1000-1200 calories if you're eating a balanced and healthy diet. Eating less than that puts your body into starvation mode, no matter what size and weight you are.



I don't ever count calories but I always know if I'm getting enough. If I've been eating low calorie meals I treat myself to chocolate, fruit or nuts to up my intake.



I'll stop hijacking the thread now



Breakfast, smoothie : orange, grapes, banana, plums, orange juice, b12 suppliment



Lunch will be a korean pot noodle and some dried fruit afterwards



Snack will be a pack of crisps



Dinner will be a huge salad and bean burgers.

I just love reading these types of posts and seeing what amazing and diverse food Vegans have discovered!



Anyway,



I will post yesterday's meal. (Nothing too fancy as I am also feeding an Omni boyfriend):



Breakfast: Oatmeal with soymilk and a tablespoon of flax seed meal with raisins. Half a banana. 2 cups of coffee with agave nectar.



Snack: Dried Mango slices



Lunch: BBQ Tofu with broccoli, homemade garlic mashed potatoes, and steamed carrots. Lots of water!



Snack: hot homemade Chai Soy Latte



Dinner: 2 slices of Vegan Pizza. I used a cornmeal crust with tomato sauce, Yves Pepperoni slices, Vegan Gourmet "Mozz", fresh basil, and fresh garlic. Side spinach salad with avocados, tomatoes, Drew's Garlic Italian dressing, and mushrooms. Lots of water!



Dessert: Homemade Vegan Oatmeal Raisin cookies!



---btw, my omni boyfriend is a pizzaholic. He LOVED this Vegan version! I was a bit worried at first because tastes can vary but he devoured every bit even asking if he could have the last piece! This made me very happy as he will now consider the Vegan version over the normal pepperoni/cheese version. A lot of it is due to the quality of the Vegan Gourmet 'cheese'. He really liked it!

Breakfast: My typical toasted peanut butter banana sandwich, cup of decaf coffee with vanilla Silk creamer



Snack: Two "healthy" cookies (whole wheat with 7 grain kashi flakes & raisins)



Lunch: Some curried chick peas, without rice I was busy and realized all of a sudden at 3:20 that I was starving and hadn't thought to have lunch. The curried chickpeas take all of 5 minutes and I didn't want to wait 40+ minutes for the rice to cook. I really need to get some instant rice :/



Dinner will be red beans and rice, stir fry with tofu, and whatever other vegan goodness my bf's family cooks up tonight! (The stir fry is my contribution)

i think there is a need to try to eliminate stereotypes about vegans - because we should be promoting it as a healthy lifestyle to encourage others to try it too. the only vegans i knew when i was younger were all deathly thin and pale. when i found out about factory farming and decided to stop eating animals, i sincerely believed that the human diet NEEDED dairy and eggs - because i had never met a healthy vegan. i believed that they completely compromised their health by becoming vegan - that was fine for them but as a single mother of 2, i didn't feel it was wise for me to do.



well now it's me. and i DO think i should be an example/role model. when they see me participate in the blood drives at work, or the little 5K races they sponsor, the myth of anemic sickly vegans is dispelled. i'm working on weight loss, i have a ways to go, but making progress, and they see that (incidentally i eat all day at work, they see that as well).



i think being an example is excellent, effective activism.

I had a whole cantaloupe for breakky (it was a smaller one though), I had a "bunless burger" from Fresh (a vegetarian/vegan restaurant chain here in TO) for lunch and roasted brussels sprouts and onions for dinner. Plus a really jinormous fiji apple as a snack, plus a few clementines and cherry tomatoes.
