A member posted this message on the Veg team forum in response to my explanation the Spark People meal plans do not support a vegan, whole foods way of eating.
I posted a long response about the value of a whole foods, starch-centered way of eating for the management of diabetes.
I invited her to check out our team.
I hope to post a longer response, more directly responding to her concerns, but I can't do it tonight.
Could some of you maybe chime in? Thanks!
Thank you for the heads up. My husband spent 17 days in a Hospital in GA to change his lifestyle (diabetes) and they were vegan and he came out a new man. We just have not been able to do it at home even with cookbooks. One we do not know how much to eat so we over eat and stay fat. Two sometimes the receipies work and sometimes they are terrible or we can not duplicate them. I have a huge hernia and IBS so many days doing house work is a painful undertaking so getting a handle on the diet is extremely important as I can not always stand for an hour preping nor can he wait a couple of hours while we try to prepare stuff we may or may not beable to eat. I like sparks because of the daily/weekly receipies as I need that I also need portion size which Sparks provides. So how do we make this work for us? Joan
