I don't eat much meat, be if fish, chicken, pig or cow. In fact I eat pig less than ever. My lady doesn't eat pig so I don't eat pig unless its pepperoni. I will not give up my pepperoni. She has to order her own pizza.

Oh my energy levels are fine. I eat a lot of pastas and rice and bread. It is sorta boring but I'm stuck for now.

Oh no! That does sound a bit boring. LOL! =)

There are other web sites, but these are inexpensive meals - thought you could use some idea's. =)

Someone explain to me how a vegan diet cures/prevents impotence? Any vegans I know are unwell from either hair lose, other vitamin deficiencies or overweight. ED starts in the mind. If you're not sexually aroused nothing is going to get you there. I've met men who have sworn they aren't able to function but with time and patience, they got there. Vegans don't just not eat meat and they do eat fat but not from animals. They don't eat or use anything from animals. It's not a diet. It's a religion. ED is the inability to become and stay aroused, not orgasam which are two separate things. Premature ejaculation is not ED. Read kamasutra.

A vegan diet can have too much fat. As you said, you know a lot of unhealthy vegans - they can eat potato chips, Oreo's, soda, etc.

A plant based diet, low in nuts & avocado, can help ED, because ED is caused by a blockage in the veins leading to the male genitalia - it is blocked with plaque.

If a man has ED he also needs to get his cholesterol checked, his heart, etc. checked - ED is a warning sign for other blocked arteries & even heart disease.

A plant based diet, which is low in fat, especially if you don't eat nuts & avocado (as I mentioned above), can help, because if you are not adding any fat into your diet, your body's cholesterol - plaque building fat - will naturally decrease.

Yes, your body makes cholesterol (I believe) made by the liver, but that is not the bad cholesterol.

I hope I explained all this right. I am a bit tired. =)

ETA: Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Vegetable Oil, etc. are *not* part of a plant based diet.

Now you are talking ED and heart disease which helped me understand where you are coming from. Why not just take Viagra which not only helps with the ED but is good for the heart. I'm strictly low carb and my cholesterol is normal. I strongly believe there is so much heart disease because of the high carb diets people are living on.

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 30, 2012, 5:24:53 PM PDT
Personally, if I were a man, I would prefer to eat a healthy diet vs. taking medicine - especially one that can cause the possible loss of eyesight, as Viagra can.

Now, that's just me.

My parents who have heart problems - my had to have a triple heart by-pass & my Dad has had several stints put in - they have stated that they will never give up meat.

I have diabetes & used Dr. Barbard's Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes: The Scientifically Proven System for Reversing Diabetes without Drugs to help - it is so much easier than the typical Diabetes diet & I was able to stop dialysis, diabetic meds, the pain from my lupus is *so* much less - some days, I don't hurt at all - I hurt so bad, I couldn't get out of bed almost everyday, before starting this.

So, I am kinda an enthusiast. But I do think that people need to do what is right for them, even if I would do things differently.

As I told my parents, if they don't want to take responsibility for their own health, then don't tell me when you are having problems.

I don't discuss eating a plant based diet with them, but when my Mom starts talking about the pains in her chest, I tell her that she made her decision, so she has to deal with it.

I know, way more than you were looking for. =)

I'm happy for you Kessa a vegan diet has had a positive affect on your health. You should stick to whatever works for your body as I do. My dad experienced heart failure when he was in his 60's but he was a heavy drinker all his life. His diet was low fat when his cholesterol started to jump when he quit smoking in his 50's. A visit to the Mayo Clinic kept his heat failure under control and he lived to almost 90. Not bad for someone who was an alcoholic all his life. I had surgery last year and had to have a stress test done before surgery because I'm over 50. Passed with flying colors. I think I'll stick with low carb.

Congrats on your stress test & for making the right decision for yourself. =)

Absolutely please do and then I want to read your review. Thanks. I finally gave up the pepperoni. They love me too much and I can't have that.

Yeah. =)

Hopefully you will find foods that make it not so boring & make you feel like you aren't deprived. :-)

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 13, 2012, 12:28:46 PM PST
I know it's awesome food; it's just a matter of motivating myself to do it!

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 17, 2012, 1:16:46 AM PST
I know it's none of business... I just have a suggestion, should you decide to give it a try.

Get as many recipes as you possibly can. Like right now, there are Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes going around.

You don't want to feel deprived during the holidays.

I use Pinterest to keep my recipes until I can get them on KindleCooking & then I will put them on my Kindle (it is like having my very own cookbook - I can even make a Table of Contents - it's cool.

But really, find recipes - Facebook has The Happy Herbivore, The Engine 2 Diet, The Chocolate Covered Diet, Waking Up Vegan, The Flaming Vegan, The Happy Go Lucky Vegan, Fat Free Vegan, etc.

Slowly adding more & more dishes to your routine, might be good. Like as a side dish & then adding something else to that later, etc.

Breakfast is probably easiest. There's Pumpkin Oatmeal, Chocolate Oatmeal, Oatmeal Pudding (tastes just like Rice Pudding, but without taking as long), adding frozen peaches, strawberries, mangoes & blueberries to Oatmeal while it cooking & adding banana before serving - it's really good.

Tonight I made a vegan version of Mac & Cheese, but was lazy so I added Green Beans, diced Tomatoes & Black Olives to it, so I didn't have to make something else.

Tomato Sauce, Bob's Red Mill Bulgur Red Wheat Ala, 28-Ounce (Pack of 4) or Timeless Purple Prairie Barley, 16-Ounce (Pack of 4), Artichoke Hearts, Olives (Black & Green), maybe some Corn or Green Beans and some seasoning - like Ground Chili - makes a really good meal.

Barley, Beans (Mung Beans are really good for this), Mushrooms and some salt (after cooking it) is really good.

Potato Leek Soup - to make it creamy use a stick blender after the potatoes are done. Add some mushrooms & fresh Rosemary - delish!

Am I helping to motivate you? LOL!

I hope so. I don't want to be pushy. Just trying to help. :-)

Thanks Kessa! I know you are totally right. Animals are tortured every day, while our fat asses feast and go yay football. I know you are right; I just have to get re-motivated. Thanks!

You just need to do what is best for you and in the time that you decide.

A medical diagnosis is the first step, and usually prescription medications. But for mild ED, supplements and even acupuncture might help.

Thanks :) I just read a great paper that my brother wrote for college, on existentialists and animal rights!
