Nothing :( i'm on a water fast for a few days - and this all sounds so good!!!

What are the main benefits you feel from water fasting? I've heard of some people doing well on them and others doing very poorly. I haven't done one in a couple years because it was so miserable for me. I don't know if I could read the "what did you eat today" thread while on one though!

yeah, it's quite painful to read!! this is the first one i've done, so i'm not really sure what to expect - i guess i'll soon find out though! how long did you go for when you did it? i've heard that 10 days is the most effective, although i don't think i'll last that long to be honest.

Oh sorry! I didn't want to make you feel bad or put you on the spot. I was just wondering what the main benefits are, as I didn't seem to experience anything but fatigue and depression!:o


how long did you go for when you did it? i've heard that 10 days is the most effective, although i don't think i'll last that long to be honest.

I did five days. I don't think I could do 10 days without it getting to my head and loving the weight loss a little too much. Plus I think I'd just get so weak (from my five day experience). Apparently, some people experience a sort of adrenaline boost after a couple days that keeps them going.

How do you live!?
Seems they're a UK thing only, cause you can't get (real) ones anywhere else from what I've heard - which is a travesty.

Actually, saying that, I swear I've seen recipes floating about the 'net...homemade crumpets?

crumpets? gosh it sounds like I may be missing out.:confused:

do you mean how do you live as in how do I live without crumpets or did you mean where ;) ?

They surely are an UK thing, but having spent my childhood mainly among Brits, I'm into all sort of UK things :p I've found recipes as well, but they ask for special crumpet irons which I haven't found anywhere yet :rolleyes:

@pavotrouge: rings for fried eggs work just as well. no idea though where you could get them in germany - maybe they're a uk thing as well? you could try posh kitchenware stores.

random lesson°° !!!

the spice made from bell pepper seeds is called paprika?
but not the bell pepper itself.

i just recently learned that, as i was talking with someone about bell peppers, that its one of my fav vegetables, and he thought i was talking about the spice, cause here we call it all paprika, the spice and the bell pepper http://laiila.forumcircle.com/forumdata/data59/laiila/images/smiles/food.gif

btw... i only ate some grapes and tomatoes so far, but it's very early in the morning here

@alleen: the same happened to me the other way round - I gave a recipe to a friend and she translated "red and green pepper" as "Pfeffer" instead of "Paprika" (which somewhat altered the recipe). Why does it have to be soooo confusing? ;)

@tigerlily: what a yummy day!

[quote=Aphrodite;411931]What brand of tinned spaghetti is vegan Emzy? I didn't know that you could get anything vegan at Nandos either, not that I plan on going there.:D

[quote]

Co-ops own brand! Said so on the side. Was a PROPER OLD tin though so maybe they don't make it vegan anymore?
I have written to Nandos before and they sent me an ingredient list for the veggie options, of which there are four. The veggie burger is the only one which is vegan but you have to make sure you ask for it without mayo. It's more like a vegetable protien burger and it's actually quite nice although on my own I would NEVER eat in Nandos. It was either eat there or starve. Brixton is SHITE for vegetarians let alone vegans, unless you guys know different?

BREAKFAST:

Baked beans on potatoe waffles

Bowl of weetabix with agave syrup

LUNCH:

Can of organic cranberry juice

Seaseme Snaps

(Was doing a stall in a non-vegan friendly town!)

DINNER:

Multigrain baguette with scheeze cheddar and chive, tomatoes, curley leaf lettuce and pickle with oven chips and a dollop of ketchup and bbq sauce.

Hi, I'm a newbie vegan...I'd been vegetarian for five years and although I'd always seen veganism as a long term goal, I'd never made it enough of a priority. Recently, I was eating a yoghurt (bleh) and I noticed on the inside of the packaging a nice little passage about how the dairy calves (sp?) on their organic farm go on to live nice happy lives in their beef herd :mad:. I put the rest of the yoghurt in the bin and yesterday was my first day as a vegan. I feel ashamed and disgusted that I didn't make the link sooner (boy, do I envy people who were raised vegan!) Anyway, yesterday looked something like this:

B- Two oatibix with rice milk and banana
S- Larabar - Ginger snap
L- Multi-seed bagel with pure
Veggies (cucumber, carrot, cherry tomatoes, lettuce, celery) with red
pepper houmous.
S- Apple, Salt and Vinegar Soy Crisps
D- Stir-Fry (Tofu, wholewheat noodles, sugar snaps, baby corn, carrot, pak
choi, soy sauce, sesame oil, plum seasoning)

Drinks - Water, tea with rice milk x2

B: Oatmeal, Apple.
L: Salad, Hashbrowns, 3 slices of wholemeal bread with Ajvar
D: i'm not sure.. i'm thinking tomato soup maybe.
