In Topic: Vegan Diet Questions?

28 March 2007 - 11:04 PM

I know I'm late posting to this thread, so if you don't read this, oh well, but in case you do:

I've been reading a lot on the subject of B12, and thought I'd point out that some problems of absorption could be caused by your doses. You can get the proper amount, but your body can only absorb so much at a time, and the rest is discarded. I only skimmed through this thread because I'm in a bit of a rush right now, but someone mentioned a supplement they put under their toungue and disolved it. That can also be an issue with regard to absorbtion. That is to say, the disolving kind are good as they absorb better than the kind you swallow whole. I can't find a supplement that's just the right dosage, but I take one that's more than sufficient to absorb properly in one day with one dose per day. My supplement is 250mcg/dose. My personal rule is to try not to exceed 2,000 mcg/week in B12 supplements, and never more than 5,000 mcg/week in B12 total. What seems to stick in my mind is about 3-10mcg per dose if you take one dose three times daily, the once per day dose is about 100?mcg per day?, and the weekly is about 2,000mcg taken once each week. I do the daily version.


Okay, I'm not making any sense I think, so I'm just gonna post this in case someone smart sees it and fixes it for me. It's past my bed time :D

Anyone happen to know off the top of your head if Xanthan Gum is made from corn?

In Topic: Running Out Of Food Options

25 March 2007 - 11:39 PM

So many of you have responded and given me such good advice, I don't know where to begin! Thank you all so much! I've been greatly encouraged by reading all your responses, and I'll be revisiting this thread to re-read what you've said :)

Hathor: I would be interested in finding gluten-free sources of vitamin B12 since I've done some research into how it became deficient, and most importantly the fact that I could become deficient in it, and I'd also like to know more about omega 3s since I haven't found much useful information about that topic.

Cassidy: I haven't very well defined "processed foods" yet. I guess I should be asking what should be considered processed, except I'm not sure if such a question belongs on this forum. The definition I got from my doctor isn't very well defined, and I'm not interested in paying another bill for more information from him. As I recall, it goes something like, "Foods that haven't gone through a significant change from its natural state" .. or did he say a "chemical" change? I don't remember exactly, but it was so vague that I'm sure his definition isn't important. It's clear I have some further research to do to decide how "processed" a "processed food" should be before it's considered potentially harmful. Or at least nutritionally deficient.

To all, you've provided me with a load of very useful information and suggestions, and I owe you big time! You can be assured that I will actually be following those suggestions, especially since I feel like I'm out of options .. besides, you've opened up not just one, but several whole new worlds full of dietary options for me! Like RiceGuy said, before I came onto this diet change, I was highly limited in the foods that I ate. Now that I think of it, ten years ago, I ate pizza, grilled cheese sandwiches (sometimes with tomato soup), cerial (with milk), and .. well, that comprised about 99.9% of my diet .. so yeah, I was limited! I haven't peaked into any of these doors yet that you've shown me, but I'm already convinced that whatever's behind them is far more than I could use in a lifetime!

So, um, that was my really long way of saying thanks .. I have been called a windbag on many occasions, so I'm trying to work on that :)

In Topic: Deer Pictures!

Great Bambi pictures, Lisa!

No, Bambi is not yummy. Why does everyone want to eat cute animals; wolves, people, bears all want to eat them...Bambi's don't look at all of those creatures and think "boy do they look tasty." They look and think, "oh no they all want me for dinner."

I am reminded of an old computer game where the deer gets revenge by hunting rednecks and drinking their beer. Yay Bambi!

I don't want to eat them :D
