I'm low on protein and iron. I found my weight remains because I'm too high in carbs, sometimes too high in fat, and sometimes too high in cholesterol. I make a veggie and fruit shake drink just about every day, but I'm still not within range with some nutrients, especially protein and iron. emoticon

I agree. Sounds like you're dangerously low on protein. Maybe potassium, too. Try eating a banana with 2 T. peanut butter every day. A dr. recommended that to me when I started having seizures from not eating enough.

Hi-- Congratulations on walking for a very good cause. I can only speak from my own experience and my own inclinations. I lean towards vegetarianism and always have, but every once in a while I need a good steak. This could be once or less than once a year. Could it be that you are not getting enough good protein? This could be one of the reasons why you are shaky. Rice and lentils provide great protein (together), but maybe you need more red meat. If you are concerned about how it is raised, maybe go for an organically or humanely raised lean meat. Good luck.

I've been hard at work training for an 18 mile walk to raise money for suicide prevention. It's going pretty well as I've walked almost 60 miles in the last month.

Since I'm very overweight and out of shape it's slow going. My concern at this point is that I'm really hungry a lot now. I'm not dieting but focusing on eating tons of veggies and lean meatless protein (nonfat cottage cheese, tofu, etc.).

Yesterday I walked 8 miles and today I'm so shaky hungry. I don't want to undo all the work I've done though. Does anyone have any thoughts or tips on keeping a good balance?

Thanks so much,
Brewery Chick
