Wow, Miss_VIV - I thought vegan cheese would be harder to make than that. I never would have thought to make it at home. Will have to try it one day, thanks!

Good point, DS9KIE. Keeping all these things easily on hand would be key.

when eating late, its what your eating that is the problem, so if your eating pizza, chocolate (thats what I ate in college) of course your going to gain weight, but if your eating carrots, peas in the pod, grape tomatoes, apples, oranges, grapes, ect. (notice its all easy stuff to get and eat)...well lets just say you have to eat alot of fruits and veggies to gain weight, compared to the junk food, and i bet you would have more energy to study.

cheese is really tough to do, especially for really 'lovers'............

I have a couple of veggie cheese recipes in my recipe book here on SparkPeople.

Thanks! I really like these ideas... not eating after 6pm may not be realistic for me, since I'm often studying until 12 or 2am... and I need energy to do that. But I could maybe push it to 8 or 9 or something.

I like the open faced sandwich idea - and perhaps I could cut at least cheese out of my diet since that is definitely a trigger food for me.

emoticon to the team! What worked for me when I was a vegetarian... eating off a small plate instead of a dinner plate. No eating after six p.m. No seconds. No dairy. Open-faced sandwiches (one piece of bread), and thinking in terms of not 100 pounds to lose, but five. Much easier goal to achieve. The fives add up. And I walked - a lot. Good luck with your goals. emoticon

Hi. I'd LOVE to find someone else going struggling to lose weight while being vegetarian. Incorporating meat in my diet is not an option, so I really need to figure out how to stop eating so much bread and cheese...

If there's anyone else who's struggling with this or has advice on this - I would love to be friends with you!

And anyone dealing with a slow metabolism (after 30 it REALLY sucks!) and/or going through the issues of balancing diet and exercise with an extremely stressful school schedule... we should support each other too!
