That is so awesome! How are you doing now that it has been awhile? Are you still following a vegan diet? I am on and off, struggling to maintain it. The food item I am struggling with is eggs. I can give them up for a week or so and then fall back. Have you had scrambled tofu? Any suggestions?

An improperly-planned animal based diet can result in life-threatening deficiencies over the long term as well. ;)

If you want a vegan plan, you have to do it yourself or pay someone LOCALLY to plan it. The availability and composition of foods varies in different areas-- a product that's fortified with various B vitamins in Ohio where SparkPeople is based might not be fortified with the same ones in California or Massachusetts. Since an improperly-planned vegan diet can result in life-threatening deficiencies over the long term, it would be irresponsible to provide a computer-generated vegan diet for people whose health you can't monitor.

I am very dissappointed that Sparkpeople doesn't have a vegan food plan. I cut meat from my diet last summer and cut dairy last fall due to the abuse/torture/death in the factory farm industries. Shame on you Sparkpeople for not offering a plant based option.

Just adding that it would be really lovely to see a vegan plan. I am sorry but being a vegan gives people the best health possible. For this widely used health promoting site, not to offer a vegan meal plan is a joke to the ultimate health of people.

If losing weight was easy then everyone would be skinny!

Plant Based Diet is what I'm doing.
I feel so fortunate that I went to to a 10 day course at a local hospital (Brunswick, Maine). if you are near that location and if you would like more info just ask. Check out the hospital near you.
"Lifestyle Choices". All animal products are on the no list, even plant based oils use extremely limited. I'm not expected to make a 100% leap immediately just do your very best. There are loads of recipes on the internet. Today I made Chili, no animal products. it was great.
Read "Food over Medicine". In 14days my glucose 122 to 111 (128 is diabetic 2), chol 227 to 203. weight 165 to 158. I'm happy! I'll stay with the Plant Based Diet! http://www.vrg.org/journal/vj2005issue4/vj2005issue4lowsodium.htm

Please set up a vegan plan - I am allergic to dairy - is it due to your advertisers and keeping the site free that there is no vegan option?

If you want to stay healthy, I'd say your first step should be: do not to eat anything which needs an advert.

You do NOT have to follow any SP diet plan. I think, although not absolutely sure, that you can create your own specific plan; I know you can set limits and goals for most nutrients. You should be able to use your doctor's diet plan and input the limits or ranges, then eat the food and track it. I hated the plan SP put me on so I canceled it. I don't have a plan as such, but I avoid and include certain foods and have my own calorie range. By daily tracking I saw that after eliminating sugar, my biggest problem was fats, so now I'm working on cutting them down to a level that is both effective and comfortable. There may be a team for vegans, but if not I'm sure you'll find them with the vegetarians. Don't let one snarky comment stop you from staying with it and working toward your goals. Good luck! emoticon emoticon

Hey, I'm just wondering what kind of product could be both vegetarian, and an animal product. Maybe she meant eggs - you don't kill the chicken so it's okay for vegetarians but not vegans.

Would be really nice to see a vegan meal plan. and dude, go easy on her; this is supposed to be an encouraging site.

Losing weight doesn't build character, it reveals it.

I too would like a vegan diet plan. I am not diabetic nor need any other special diets such as low cholesterol, heart healthy, etc. I do not eat any animal products and I am sure there are many others out there as well.

Sparkpeople does offer a new diabetes meal plan.

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/diabetes-diet
.asp


But it doesn't offer low-GI or specifically low-fat meal plan options.

I'm not eating animal products, and am aiming for low GI and low fat (Dr Neal Barnard's Reversing Diabetes). Is there an appropriate diet plan available on SparkPeople?
