I'm doing the Kick-Start but should my Family
Posted Friday, November 1, 2013 at 6:28 PM
I need to loose weight, I am at least 35lb overweight & I am not fit. I had a baby (put on loads of weight) & have shifted about 18lb but have completely plateaued. I am always tired (I have chronic pain following a major car crash which doesn't help).
I have a husband who could do with slimming a bit & definitely would benefit from more energy, and I have a two year old daughter who is not a fussy eater & who is small & skinny (like I used to be as I think that is probably my natural state or at least I am very short & weight hasn't been a problem until the last few years - I believe I've become addicted to the wrong foods).
So should we all go vegan?
I'm assuming that if I follow the basic principles & we are getting all of the food groups on the power plate in the right quantity plus we take a multi-vitamin for B12 then we are covered BUT is that ok / does it apply to a two year old child? I would prefer not to have to cook foods I can't eat (especially while I'm getting used to it), but obviously if I have to do something else because it's best for my child I will.
Any advice much appreciated
