“Low intensity prolonged work is a good tool for fat loss when used in conjunction with a more intense training at other points.

Walking for an hour with your heart rate just over 100bpm is no substitute for something more intense, but is a low-impact way to burn some extra calories and raise your base metabolic rate for the day.”

“Because there are a very limited number of whole food vegan sources that do not contain more carbohydrates and than fats or proteins.  Vegans can supplement a diet with a "vegan" processed protein powder, or vegan vegetable oils, sure.  But if you were to only eat whole foods I don't think you could do it, a certainly not without shipping/importing a bunch of foods that grow far away in limited climates.”

“So the only foods which qualify as "whole" are those which can be eaten as found in their natural state? Is washing acceptable, or is even that considered to be "processing"?”

“Yeah, but but there's lots of stuff you have to really search for on a veg-based diet, that are easily found in animal products.

For example, it will take lots of planning not to end up getting 70%+ of your calories from carbs, since all but a tiny handful of unprocessed, whole, plant foods are carb sources by at least a 2:1 ratio.”

Aelfgifu1 on Jun 14, 2013 at 18:39:02

“You really don't have to search for vegan foods. You just go to the grocery store and buy them like you would anything else.

And I've been adding what I eat into a daily calorie counter/nutrition analyzer. I struggle every day to get up to the appropriate number of carbs. Sometimes, I even have to add popcorn as a snack after dinner.

Here's what caloriecount.about.com says about my carb intake for *yesterday*: "The guidelines recommend 45 - 65% of daily calories from carbohydrates; your intake was 46%. Choose carbohydrates that are high in fiber and low in added sugars."”

sindurrella on Jun 12, 2013 at 16:09:06

“I wouldn't concern myself over a vegan's nutrition. It's hard to find a diabetic vegan, an obese vegan, or a severely malnourished vegan. Whereas, you can walk down any city street and brush shoulders with so called meat eaters who believe a varied diet means Burgers on Monday, Tacos on Tuesday, Pizza on Friday, etc.....and don't we all know meat eaters who cringe at the thought of a string bean or don't want "rabbit food" on their burger or cannot stand any veg except corn?”

“I assure you that vegans can get plenty of calories without depending on 70% carbs. Not sure how you came to that conclusion.”

“You seem confused about what the word optimized means. Our bodies are very adaptable, but there is still a best, and it doesn't include gluten. You also, like the other guy who responded, seem only concerned with weight loss. This adds to the feeling that you aren't interested in body optimization at all, and probably don't have a sense of what approaching that even looks like.

Few things have been more harmful to our communal health than the paradigm of treating food as simply energy.”

“It's about body optimization.

Celiacs or not, gluten isn't healthy. If you want to be at your relative healthiest, it should go. If you're pretty tolerant, and don't really care about what's optimal, then go on consuming it.”

“You know your body will optimize pretty much whatever you feed it, take me for example, i work out no less than 3x a day, run, cycle to work, swim, ect. My body takes whatever i put into it, and optimizes it, to the demands i have placed upon my body, if you want to lose weight, it is simple as , you need to burn more than you consume, it is not about fruit, nuts, seeds, gluten, ect. But it is about protein, it takes 1 gram of protein to support 1 pound of lean muscle mass a day, so given this equation, a 250lb man, if he wanted to be 185lbs, needs to consume 185grams of protein a day, start out with hitting the grams amount, not caloric intake, work on that later, gradually fine tune the diet, eliminating calories where you can, but maintaining the protein, easy as that.”
