Re: Vegan Newbie, Accidental 4/4 discovery, Terrified

Anab: Yay, another veggie folk! Yeah, even if I wanted to, I don't really have the option of shell-fish. I am allergic. Additionally, I had an unexpected reaction to fish (in a food without my knowledge). So, I won't be adding that to my diet. I am having a bit of a difficulty digesting it all, as w...

Re: Vegan Newbie, Accidental 4/4 discovery, Terrified

MarcR: Thanks for the thoughtful and encouraging reply. It is comforting that the cholesterol may not be the worst part. What did you mean by: " but if you want a biomarker to target, I suggest triglycerides < HDL"? The coconut oil is a big loss for me. I currently use unrefined coconut mi...

Re: Vegan Newbie, Accidental 4/4 discovery, Terrified

Maureen: Thanks! I figure I will just have to use the coconut oil for my hair and skin, now. Have you read all the info about lectins and inflammatory vegan protein sources? I am finding it a bit hard to follow. Can you give me a good source to start with? (I didn't see it in the primer.) Is that al...

Re: New 4/4 Have Question About Siblings

I am there with you all. I just found out accidentally about 10 days ago. I have two brothers. My mother is 2/4, I am 4/4. We have been discussing whether we should even tell them. Both brothers have very unhealthy diets and do not exercise. I have always been the odd one, as I am vegan and exercise...

Re: Vegan Newbie, Accidental 4/4 discovery, Terrified

Stavia: I think panicked is a fair assessment. LOL I am accustomed to having a pretty good grasp on my health. This definitely blind-sided me. Statistics & Risk: Well, probably a good thing there are not numbers. I would probably just obsess about those, too. Coconut Oil: That is good news. I wo...

Re: Vegan Newbie, Accidental 4/4 discovery, Terrified

Juliegee: Thanks. I am sure the shock will wear off soon. I was thinking about adding additional D, anyway. Guess it is a good time, huh. LOL I am doing a vegan Omega-3. But, I will increase it. Haven't added choline, or heard of it - for the matter. But, will look in the forum, and then proceed. My...

Re: Vegan Newbie, Accidental 4/4 discovery, Terrified

Slacker: I agree, too breathing in the last few days. Aarrrggg. I guess I'm lucky I stumbled onto the bad news early enough to do something about it. Thanks for the link to the primer. I have been looking at it. It is very dense for a non-medical gal. Quite the learning curve. But, I am pushing thro...

Re: Vegan Newbie, Accidental 4/4 discovery, Terrified

SusanJ: Thanks so much! I think I can follow that - insulin resistance first. Okay! I have been debating the need to cut sugar out for a while. Guess I just needed this HUGE kick in the pants. I have not had my HbA1c and Insulin levels tested since the Boston Heart Profile in 2014. They tell me they...

Re: Texas Meetup 2017

Howdy, y'all! :lol: I am a Native Texan, and still call it my home. I am, however, in an RV and traveling constantly for work. I only make it back a couple of times a year. But, if I am there, I would love to attend a meet up! ..... I am in the Austin Area. But, clearly, travel is not an issue for m...
