    What’s your opinion on molasses ? (It’s technically sugar ) for weightloss

    • FrootKat

      October 29, 2016 at 8:29 pm

      Tatum Truter I’m sure adding it in a balanced way will be totally fine !

    • Min Young Lee

      Tatum Truter I think Hannah included blackstrap molasses in one of her What
      I Ate videos once so I’m pretty sure it’s fine plus it’s packed with
      minerals and not empty calories like refined sugar!

    • Magdalena Arias

      October 30, 2016 at 1:31 pm

      I think that both mollases and peanut butter are fine. Blackstrap mollases
      have so many nutrients that are needed in a healthy diet, and peanut butter
      (as long as it is not full of added sugars) can be a perfectly healthy
      source of healthy plant fats.

      Personally I like molasses, it’s got vitamins/minerals like iron, though
      not a lot, it’s better than nothing. Also since it’s stronger I find I
      don’t use as much compared to refined sugar too.

    • Schrödinger's Ape

      It’s better than sugar, but it’s still not a “health food.” It’s processed,
      and all processed foods are worse than their whole counterparts. But no one
      eats enough molasses to affect weight loss.

    whole wheat pasta isnt a whole food if it just has one ingredient?

    • Caitlyn Massey

      October 31, 2016 at 9:54 pm

      also because flour or wheat is not a whole food.


      November 7, 2016 at 2:38 pm

      Hellо therе! I’m rеallу sаtisfiеd with this рroduсt. I lоst weight in a

      just go on this wеbsitе MY TOРРРP

      Shadow Feng yes, but try eating brown or black rice once in a while; the
      husk (right word? I’m not a native speaker, sorry!) contains a lot of fiber
      and other good stuff! 🙂

    Wow, I definitely need that thyroid supplement. I just saw that it has
    Vitamin B12 in it.. Is it enough for the daily intake or should I still
    supplement it?

    • Lacey Anne

      +Vegan in Washington There’s nothing wrong with people educating themselves
      on their health concerns instead of resorting to seeking health advice from
      people who took one nutrition class in their eight years of being advised
      to prescribe drugs from Big Pharma 🙂 As a person with hypothyroid, a
      doctor will prescribe thyroid medication (such as synthroid or its generic
      version) which will target the thyroid function and not its symptoms. Once
      your thyroid is barely in the normal range, a hypothyroid will go off
      medication but will still have all the symptoms. I have gone through this
      process with several doctors. They just want to get another prescription
      under their belt and get you out the door. To each her own! 🙂

    • TheFengLord

      November 1, 2016 at 9:46 pm

      +Lacey Anne It’s clear that you are an expert in the field of nutrition.
      What I find weird though, is that after all the effort you put in,
      carefully and objectively reviewing the peer reviewed literature, that you
      can still come to the bold conclusion that low dose supplementation with
      methylcobalamin is ‘fine’ or even optimal. It seems more likely to me that
      your claims are merely based on personal anecdotes rather than scientific

    • Lacey Anne

      reason beyond making themselves feel superior ❤️

    Well since I found your 70 lbs and gained it this past year I am going to
    take your advice and get rid of it! Thanks for the I go see me doctor
    Tuesday I am going to see if she thinks the thyroid energy will help me! I
    did get my thyroid tested so we will see the results as well.

    I got a thyroid test and it all came back normal but I still feel like I’m
    not hormonally balanced, I have irregular periods, dry skin, not a lot of
    energy or motivation, so I think I’ll try that supplement and the
    probiotics too. Also, hydration is so important! People don’t drink enough
    water, they really don’t.

    • Marina N

      October 30, 2016 at 3:21 pm

      JomoWhore Do you eat enough fat ? that’s really important for hormonal
      balance 🙂 (and eating enough calories is important too). Have you tried to
      check on cronometer if you’re getting everything ?

    • JomoWhore

      October 30, 2016 at 5:49 pm

      I’ve used cronometer before but not lately. I suppose I don’t get much fat,
      since I try to avoid oil and I don’t have much avocado or hummus or
      anything like that often. I guess I could start monitoring again and try to
      get 15% fat.

    • Gabrielle Lamarche

      October 30, 2016 at 9:16 pm

      I’m like this too I find omega fatty acids help me so I just toss in some
      hemp seeds into my smoothies or on top of salads or make a seed milk with
      it. I’m starting probiotics too, hopefully it’ll help!

    Hannah your symptoms sound like low Iron or being Anemic
    i would definitely get some Bloodwork done
    you seem to be eating enough Nori to get enough Iodine for your Thyroid
    over supplementing the Thyroid can lead to serious problems even symptoms
    of Graves disease

    • Isa_DPB

      October 30, 2016 at 6:23 am

      I also feel it’s a bit dangerous to recommend thyroid supplement, I would
      prefer to have a (or several) medical advice on that. (according to Amazon
      comments, it mentions that it’s not recommended for people taking
      hypothyroid medication)

    • vegan for life

      October 30, 2016 at 4:12 pm

      +Isa_DPB anything that may alter the function of your hormones is
      potentially going mess with your overall ballance
      thyrosine has a stimulant effect for most people temporarily increasing
      energy therfore assuming its solving the problem
      getting not enough iron on a Vegan diet is much more likely for especially
      young Women , usally by the time you experience hairloss ,fatigue ,
      dry skin, feeling lack of enery or motivation to exercise it will have been
      going on for a while

    • Isa_DPB

      October 30, 2016 at 5:04 pm

      I take thyroid medication for hypothiroid, so I would not dare taking this
      supplement, if I could take more of my medication, I would lose weight but
      at what cost or my health…
      But you agree this supplement should not be recommended for everybody ?

    • vegan for life

      October 30, 2016 at 5:09 pm

      +Isa_DPB absolutely I would not touch it or recommend it , and you are
      right not to increase your dose of thyroid meds to loose weight
      It is very hard on the Heart and over stimulates your Adrenals

      any pharmaceutical is complete bullshit, nothing made in a lab will work
      with our NATURAL BODIES and even isolated natural supplements don’t work
      the same as whole foods.

    to east pasta sometime.

    • Justine Freedom

      October 30, 2016 at 5:35 am

      It isn’t a whole food because it’s been processed to make it however you
      can have it sometimes 🙂 just not all the time.

    • DayDreamer

      October 30, 2016 at 7:10 am

      thanks for the reply … I will limit my pasta to now and then

    • Justine Freedom

      October 30, 2016 at 7:36 am

      Oh feel free to get stuck into the potatoes 🙂 they’re awesome and yep rice
      too. But yeah I only have pasta maybe once a week if that.

    • A.

      November 2, 2016 at 6:05 pm

      +fff fff That makes sense and I agree with you. I was lucky I didn’t put on
      weight even though I did expect it to happen & I even accepted to be going
      through life being overweight for a couple of months. Anyway, I am just
      trying to help and this is me putting in my 2 cents. I sincerely believe
      that you should listen to your body, even if you’re physically full. If
      your mind is telling you to eat more, then do it. There’s a reason why it’s
      saying that. I am glad I went through with it and I can recommend it to
      anyone who’s dealing with what I was dealing with a couple months back.
      It’s over now, I am not obsessed with food anymore, I am not ALWAYS hungry
      anymore. Everything is 100% back to normal. There are people that believe
      in metabolic damage, there are people that don’t. Clearly you’re the second
      one and clearly I am the first. If you do not agree with my method, then
      don’t follow it. Gaining weight was never a big deal to me, if that’s what
      would’ve happened to me to get to my ideal weight long term, I was okay
      with it. I feel like this is something I had to go through to become a
      normal eater and now that it’s over, my beliefs about these things are only

    • Haley Hays

      Yeah in the beginning you go to the bathroom a lot. Your body just isn’t
      used to so much fiber, one it starts to regulate itself it shouldn’t be
      quite as often. It will get better!!

      Martine Peters Try taking enzymes BEFORE eating to help break down food
      (enzymes are different than probiotics). There are ones specific for “gas”
      caused by veggies. Enzymes are best taken 20 mins before eating. Probiotics
      are best taken on empty stomach, like before bed. But Google enzymes to see
      what I mean. Best wishes!

    I am 53 years old (pretty sure I am menopausal, but not bad, unless the
    symptoms are just from letting myself go) (and I am built very much like
    you were in the back* photo) and just starting this, and you were
    recommended by a friend. I did my first “vegan” shop tonight, and was
    excited, but very emotional when going through the meats and egg sections
    (after watching the Gary Yourofsky video). So I am going to do a video
    tomorrow, and will do one each month(ish) to keep a track of what is
    happening (will not be loaded to YouTube though) …wish me luck.
    BTW I buy from IHerb in the U.S. (I am in Australia) and I take Probiotics
    by NOW Foods, and a bunch of other products recommended to me by a
    reputable PT and friend that lives in my City.

    I’ve been vegetarian for 2months, but suddenly I gave up. Craving and
    eating fried chicken specificly. I want to start all over again before I
    tried veganism. But when I was thinking to restart, I was thinking How can
    I gave up chicken, because I cant. Please help me.

    • Arpita Basu

      November 18, 2016 at 3:18 am

      Personally I’d cut the chicken out first. I’ve read that chicken is more
      environmentally taxing than fish. There’s also the egg industry that’s
      really horrible. Fish has Omega 3s as well as protein, so I guess if you
      had to cut out either chicken or fish, the fish would be the most
      nutritious/”bang for your buck.”
      But…do you like fish or chicken better? If you cut out the food you least
      like, you’re less likely to cheat.

      Honestly I don’t think this is something you can ask others about. For me I
      just think about how they’ve treated the food I was consuming. I’ve been a
      vegetarian for eight months now and whenever I get a craving or someone
      cheeky offers me meat I just think about why I started doing this. I
      couldn’t kill an animal so why am I forcing someone else to do it for me.
