I have days when I stay in my calories and I am content, then I have days when I just cant eat enough and go over I find those days are because I didn't plan and bring enough foods to get through the day. I have to tell my self no binging after dinner, I find I eat at night because I think I am hungry but if I stop and really think about it or have a cup of tea I am fine. Work in progress

When I first turned vegan I actually gained quite a bit of weight. This happened to a friend, too. For me, I was trying so many processed substitutes instead of just eating more plant food, and I think for my friend, let's face it, vegan deserts are so common and usually better than those with dairy and eggs.

When I was a vegetarian as a teenage in the rural Midwest and my options were often slim (I am specifically thinking of going to camp once and the director sitting me down thinking I had an eating disorder from avoiding all the animal products), yeah, it was hard to eat enough then.

With all the wonderful vegan food to try and enjoy that is so much more interesting I find it much easier to maintain my calories and therefore my weight which in turn maintains my health which is a double whammy don't you think ?

I'm doing great myself and my appetite is well diminished because of the wonderful and healthy meals I'm eating.

The only super powers I want are Kindness, Gentleness, Patience and Peace of Mind.

Has anyone else noticed that sticking to your ranges is a heck of a lot easier when you're vegetarian/vegan? I'm finding it harder to go all out and binge eat, not because the food isn't tasty, but because I'm eating so much to hit my calorie goals! I also seem to be getting way more key nutrients than when I was tracking as an omni. Anyone else noticed this?

Each day I am grateful for nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, dreams that turned into reality and likes that turned into love.
