Waka Flocka

Waka Flocka Flame's drastic weight loss is inspiring his fans to lose weight. The 31-year-old "O Let's Do It" rapper once tipped the scales at 300 pounds. He credits a vegan diet with helping him lose the weight.

"I was fat. I had stretch marks. I just got tired of it," Waka explains in a new promotional video for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

He said he noticed the weight loss was good for his overall health, and that was all the convincing he needed to stick to the meat and dairy-free diet.

"I got on stage, I felt better," he says. "My attitude was better. Like, everything about me was better."

Waka is a dog lover who has worked with PETA to help save animals over the years.

The new PETA "Vegan Roundtable" campaign clip also features hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons and R&B singer Mya sharing the reasons for their vegan lifestyles.

    Wake! I like this guy... ?????

  • southern

    That's nice Waka but as for me and mine we likes all the meats and cheeses and its hot as hell in bama how the hell am I gonna do without blue bell ice cream.

  • Owww76

    After watching that "What The Health" documentary on Netflix, it definitely has me re-thinking eating vegan meals from now on. You just never know that foods that you consume on a regular basis can slowly be killing you. All of those chemicals that the animals are injected with is crazy.

  • Noirluv45

    There are so many cancer-causing additives in food. The food industry is killing us. My former brother-in-law went vegan and got very ill because of the lack of protein. GMO's are another thing to watch out for.

  • Coy little wink

    I'm gonna try to eat vegan 2 or 3 days a week...baby steps ?

  • Owww76

    I was mind boggled at all of these places telling us eat this and that and the stuff they are listing is not good for us. But come to find out the ones that are sponsoring all of these places are the big corporations like Pizza Hut and Taco Bell. I am gonna try to go vegetarian for a week and see how that goes and then just make lil' changes to my eating habits afterwards.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Oh Lord...look at the way Mya is looking at him. She's at it again!

    Now, Waka has already had Mya, so that's some tea for your Wednesday morning. A little birdie told me that was one of the reasons Gucci cut her loose a few years back. Not that Gucci Mane was pressed over Mya's long forgotten ass; but, rather, Gucci had heard that Mya had made more rounds than a bartender at Applebee's and I'm told he'd also heard she was an expert head provider and he just wanted to hit.

    And of course, he did. And then he waved goodbye to her. Like so many others have.

    Mya had everybody in the Brick Squad; ALL of the No Limit male artists; Cisco AND several other members of Dru Hill; and countless other music stars and industry figures and a few basketball players and football players.

    Mya has spread her legs from coast to coast, and every city, hamlet, town and village in the country. The word hoe doesn't even begin to describe her.

    She covers more miles than DELTA, and sadly, I'm told she'll suck off any baller and has hardly no walls left. Sorry to be so crude but it is what it is.

    And for all that, she's still BROKE.

  • Owww76

    Yes exactly! One of my friends stopped for 8 days since watching it. I just gotta find ways to make vegetables fun. to eat. I had some veggie wings at this restaurant in Philly that were really good.

  • Noirluv45

    Isn't that something? How ironic is that? Have you seen the ingredients in Taco Hell's food? It's horrible! I think your approach is a good one to take. I really believe in researching things. There are so many things hidden from us. I hope things work out for you.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Definitely good luck to you!
    A week is easy, day 8&9 hurt.

    Monthly I do a veggie and fruit cleanse, once you feel the benefits, you'll want to stick to it. I eat pirk maybe every 2 months, and allow myself a burger once a month

    Your body will thank you

  • Noirluv45

    Veggie wings? What are they made up of?

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Totally with you. Although I've switched from ice cream to froyo

    This chicken bacon I just ate ?

  • Owww76

    They are made out of Seitan. It was really good and tasted like meat. I was surprised. A friend also told me they make vegan cheesesteaks out of it as well.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Seitan is too close to Satan for me....

    Just kidding ( although it don't sound right...)

    Goes to google- hopes it's not man made, if so may as well not feel bad about the goat, Mac & cheesecake I'm making Saturday ?????

  • ALLMINE

    im a vegan.. i don't usually tell people tho. lmao. i don't like attention. i enjoy it tho.

  • Owww76

    Thanks I appreciate it. Yeah all of those sponsors that are telling these places how to tell people to eat and it isn't beneficial to them at all. I was impressed with the people that were taking all of these prescriptions and just by changing their diet to vegan they were able to stop taking the prescriptions and feel the benefits of a plant based diet.

  • Noirluv45

    Oh, OK. I've never heard of that until you mentioned it. At least they are making alternatives tasty.

  • xenaD

    &I just how do you know? ???

  • Skin Deep Beauty

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I've been doing that

  • xenaD

    I eat red meat 2x a year (depending on the year) some years I don't even touch it! (I stopped pork and red meat in 04) I'm thinking of going vegan soon! I want to try tofu or a meat substitute just to see ??

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Good for him
    There is a really good vegan restaurant I tried last week. I had curry chicken and fried rice....it was amazing! The chicken was soy based.

  • Coy little wink

    So u eat seafood?

  • xenaD

    Yes

  • hotntot95

    A few weeks out the month I cut my meat and dairy consumption...it works..
    watch "what the health" on Netflix...very eye opening about the human body and how it has to work overtime to digest meat and the effects it has...

  • Noirluv45

    You're welcome. Isn't it funny how society has been duped into believe taking medicine and being sick is "normal." Look at all the prescription medication commercials that play, most of which, cause more sickness and even death. Have you listened to the side effects of those medicines? I'm all for changing diets and taking vitamins and supplements that do not have dangerous additives. I was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year and I turned everything around by changing what I put in my mouth.

  • Reina1718

    Lol

  • Ni Ni

    If true, at least she kept her business low key.

  • Coy little wink

    What benefits did u have? Weight loss?

  • hotntot95

    That part about the pig farms in north Carolina???

  • darealwifey

    Yep...watched it and been mostly vegan for two weeks. That movie is no joke.

  • darealwifey

    Yes, ma'am. I'll never look at pork the same.

  • Noirluv45

    Ugh! I live near Smithfield's meat processing plant where they process pigs and chickens for market. When you drive by there, it's stinks to high heaven! It's so sad to see those pigs and chickens packed in those trucks. They don't have room to move.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Lol

  • hotntot95

    Never again will I eat pork or smoke sausages ...

  • Phyllis

    Good for him!!????Me and my husband just started the vegan lifestyle. I was quite surprised of all the delicious recipes we found. Very excited about this new journey for us.

  • Coy little wink

    I only eat bacon...its not pork ??

  • Elevated Soul

    It's good for people to eat less or no meat. Another thing that is just as bad is sugar. Cut those bad carbs out..Intermittent Fasting is also a very very good method to use as well....

  • Rayne

    His skin looks clearer.

  • Owww76

    Yeah that was really crazy and all those people getting sick from the gas coming from those farms!

  • JV

    I would absolutely do vegan; I just don't want to break my wallet to do so. I had a soy non-chicken product that tasted fantastic.

  • xenaD

    Overall health and feeling well! No major weight loss... I am able to maintain a steady weight

  • hotntot95

    Terrible..it turns my stomach after seeing what they are doing to keep up with the American diet...

  • Ni Ni

    I do that, either eat meat only at dinner or once a week, unfortunately still no weight loss. My body is stuck at this size?.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    A church friend of mine went started the alkaline diet perfected by Dr. Sebi (RIP) last year in September. Since starting this diet she is cured of fibroids and migranes. And has lost 30 lbs. Because she knew I suffered with migraines she wanted me to try it and gave me a grocery list with all of the approved things you can consume. Some of that stuff I have never heard ever in my life!

  • JV

    If you liked that, I would give "Okja" a try. It's not a documentary, but it was animal lover-themed and Tilda Swinton is pretty entertaining in it. Not for everyone but for a movie on Netflix I enjoyed it.

  • Elevated Soul

    Yes I don't mess with GMO whenever possible......I read everything.

  • Owww76

    Very true! The side effects always make you sicker than the medicine it is supposed to help. It is embedded in our minds because we are taught eating habits at a young age. My grandmother was a day care cook and everything was fried. When I lost 100lbs 12 years ago i changed up my eating habits and went to the gym. That documentary definitely opened my eyes to some new things I am gonna try to do with my eating.

  • Elevated Soul

    Have you tried Intermittent Fasting?

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Yes it's a pretty penny and then I would have to divide and conquer in my household. There is no way my children wouldn't be willing to switch over!

  • xenaD

    Try it! It's delightful ?

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    I wanted to try the intermittent fasting

  • Scromes1212

    Let's keep it funky. Duck Gregory was a vegetarian for 50 years and he died at 84. I know folks that's been eating pork they whole life that are well over there 80's. I was a vegetarian for like 3 years then I go to the doctor and he tells me I have hyper tension. Said it was from the sodium in all that fake meat I was eating and whiskey and cigars. There are more factors that come into play when it deals with a person's life span. But shout out to Waka for trying to live right. Just understand as b lack folks there are a lot of factors they play into our life expectancy.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Is it expensive?

  • JV

    I like how in every pharmaceutical commercial now, they have some "cute" animated/CGI mascot that's totally annoying and unnecessary. Like the lady walking her bladder everywhere.

  • Ni Ni

    I did that several years ago(was younger)...stopped eating at 3:00. I did lose weight, but my nerves so bad now...i have eat something in the evening?.

  • southern

    Wtf has she done to YOU for her bitness to be put on front damn street like this? Damn folks love saying who they HEARD somebody done fugged. As for being broke I want to be her kind of broke. And I don't even like Mya beak nose ass but damn. Shit

  • Noirluv45

    Yep, sure does! Right. It's important to start children off eating right. My cousin and his wife refused to give their children refined sugar. She made most of their food from scratch. Doing that, they don't have a taste for junk food and such. Congrats on losing 100 lbs! It's amazing how much better you feel, isn't it?

  • Noirluv45

    Good! It's very important to do so.

  • Elevated Soul

    I love it because it keeps me discipline.

  • DynoMight

    Vegan for years. Still here. Still getting carded well past the legal age. No alcohol. No smoking. No choking. No doctors. #Hydrated

  • Noirluv45

    It's horrific what they are doing! I used to eat at Taco Bell, and then I got hipped to what they put in their food...never again!

  • freelancepimp .

    Phyllis you dead already. Girl bye...

  • hotntot95

    Actually it's cheaper...u will be surprised how much we spend on meats...when I started cutting it out and buying veggies, beans, fruits, brown rice...it's much cheaper, I go walking a few times a week..and I lost a few pounds

  • Lovely1

    I agree

  • Elevated Soul

    Good for you because that takes a lot of discipline......I have a few friends who are vegetarians too.

    I get carded as well but I'm not a vegetarian. I eat mainly veggies/ certain fruits/ black walnuts but I'll eat spinach chicken or salmon atleast 3 times a months.....

  • hotntot95

    Even the chickens are being forced to lay eggs, unnaturally...all this stuff is unhealthy for us to be eating..

  • Owww76

    Oh that is really good. Junk food is my downfall, i am trying to cut that. Ughh LOL! Thanks, it was a lot of work to lose it but to keep it off is the hard part. But I changed a lot of things up in my eating. Is topped drinking soda, i cut back on eating a lot of beef. I just eat turkey,chicken, pork and fish. I just been talking to other friends who are vegan/vegetarian getting some suggestions on what to eat.

  • Mark mcharm

    Not a 84 year old around with no health problems thst eats meat and processed foods sidney poitier is 90 go lookat what he looks like most black men we barely make 50 from poor diet add in stress it is not good.

  • Mark mcharm

    it is so easy people think allwe eat are sprouts and nuts all day

  • Dr. P

    he doesn't know shyt. Typing these long rambling ass paragraphs about a woman he has never met, never will meet, and wouldn't piss on him if he was on fire. Messy ass. I hate when people who don't even clear $40,000 annually call millionaires broke. STFU with your dumb typing ass.

  • ThottyPippen

    Do what fits for your life. The most important thing is to research what you're eating, not fad-hopping. Look at your labels...look at the sodium content because I've noticed that when a company is trying to copy meat or have a turkey substitute, they load it with salt.

  • Mark mcharm

    Bruh that is old news you are bringing up she already said shewas wild when shewas younger

  • Coy little wink

    I have...a couple weeks ago I had some ground turkey go bad on me....the smell when I cooked it was horrific! Thankfully I love seafood have only been able to eat that since...having sushi for lunch ?

    I love fruits veggies and nuts always eat plenty of those

  • Scromes1212

    That's my point lol Sidney Poitier is not a vegetarian. Your speaking as if you know what his diet consists of. But I agree, we have to be more healthy as a community

  • hotntot95

    That's what I'm doing and I see significant results in my body and how I sleep and my skin...eating too much meat and dairy is a slow way to destroy your digestive system..

  • Mark mcharm

    uhm sidney poiter is vegan bruh

  • Dr. P

    I agree with you 100%%%% her kind of broke is nice, current net worth $4-$6 million...meanwhile this fools credit score is probably on par with his shoe size. I hate when people front like they KNOW the mileage of a woman's coonta. Barely even know who their true daddy is, but stay typing like their jealous filled words are truth. Chileeeee...

  • Dr. P

    he's hurt she didn't give him any...

  • Scromes1212

    By insinuating he makes 40000 a year and Mya is a millionaire, your doing the same thing you accuse him of. JS

  • Dr. P

    I know hun...

  • Coy little wink

    No choking...lawd!

    so what's your guilty pleasure?

    My problem is potato chips and sweets ?

    Are we sure that's Wacka in that pic (right side)? Does your eyebrows get thicker after you go vegan? Are we sure that's the same person? Just curious. ?

  • my view

    what was the grocery list

  • Scromes1212

    I never heard that. Sorry. But the fact still remains there are plenty of people that aren't vegan that live to his age. And when did he become vegan? Most vegetarians I know stay eating French fries and cheese pizza and bean burritos. But That's just me.Dr Sebi was 82 when he died but I'm suppose to believe he had the cure for aids and cancer lo? Come on

  • my view

    my grandmother is 94 and still eats every part of the pig and is just fine. her brothers are 75+ and they eat what they want when they want so i do understand what your saying

  • Sid

    I tried Vegan but I couldn't stay as one due to the fact that I was trying to gain weight(muscle). Its good if you're to lose weight but I rather have thick thighs and muscles so it's a no for me. But I credit him cause it's hard to be Vegan.

  • Scromes1212

    Thank you. I haven't ate pork in 15 years but that's a personal choice. It's all about moderation with anything you choose to indulge in.

  • hottlanta

    Went to Walgreen's and got 2 Degornio Pizzas 2 for $10.00. So the more people that goes vegan that is more for me. Gonna go and stock up on 2 more 2 for $10.00 pizza's tomorrow. Thanks for saving me some money because them pizza's sometimes cost $7.00 apiece.

  • Scromes1212

    They got 4 for 10 at Costco. Congratulations, you played yourself smh

  • hottlanta

    You said nothing about how many dyck miles Dennis Rodman got on him but trying to be a reputable Secretary of State now. She is single she can go as many miles as she wants.

  • hottlanta

    Awwww dayum. I am black and you know I keep my receipts they are going back. When I finish doing my hour and a half run I pop in a pizza and keep it moving.

  • Scromes1212

    Lol now that's some black folks sh#t smh

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Turkey?

  • hottlanta

    All of our bodies are different. Studies have shown that vegan bodies are just as messed up and people who eat junk food. There is not a one size fits all food plan for everybody. I can't eat anything with soy it makes me sick as a dog but yet soy is supposed to be natural and safe.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    I'm scared of tofu ?
    It just doesn't "look" right

    Even though One of damn evil stepsisters who are vegans probably slipped it to me ?

  • hottlanta

    I got a girlfriend who takes so many supplements they look like M&M candy and she says she is healthy and only walks from the bathroom to the bedroom.. They showed a lady last week taking all of those supplements and died,

  • Darkandlovely617?

  • Wreckognize Game

    You should write books because you are so detailed with your analogies and descriptions. I started reading your font before looking at the name and knew this was you.

    I haven't tried it yet
    maybe for a special occasion

  • Mark mcharm

    You miss the point and yes he is the chances of a Black Male surviving to 90 is slim because you know how majority eat process food eat steak,eggs and potatos for 3 months and see what your cholestrol looks like compared to eating plant based dishes and pineapples and fruit.

  • You Could Never

    There is a girl here at my job and she is the fattest most out of shape vegan I have ever seen in my life. And she been vegan for 10 years she said. She also obviously has a calcium issue and Im not sure if its her diet. But she has broken two bones in the past 8 months.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Store hop to ensure best pricing
    Costco & bjs are awesome $4.99for 2 pounds of organic kale & spinach

  • Coy little wink

    I was being silly...I've tried turkey and beef bacon but pork bacon is supreme..lol

  • Darkandlovely617?

    ?

    My mom is the same way. I get it, I do.
    I love goat and lamb too much to go vegan ?
    And the occasional fried rabbit ? Peter cotton tail skin taste so good, and I don't do fried food ( insert bad & boujee face) ?
    Find and try alfresco chicken baco ( the raw, not precooked!)

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Absolutely ?

    But seriously though, what's concerning to me is ladies my age (32) who are having reproductive issues, a high rate of kids with disabilities, extreme ADHD, breast cancer at 27 scares me!

    We definitely have to take care of our bodies. We are so lucky to be the in between crowd. We've learned so much from our grandparents & parents and are able to see the effects on our children & nephews, nieces just like only 10 years younger than us

  • Naomi

    The fake meat will get you which is why a lot of vegans tell you to make your own version of "meat" You want meatloaf? Sure there's the fake "meat" meatloaf...or you can make it out of lentils or chickpeas on your own. It's easy to become reliant on fake meat...you just have to look up recipes on your own...like coconut bacon...SO GOOD. Made out of coconut flakes and liquid smoke. I get rave reviews on it every time lol

  • Noirluv45

    Junk food was mine too, and at times, it still is. Lol! You're welcome. It is very hard to lose weight (I lost 50 lbs.) and keeping it off is hard. It's a day to day decision, isn't it? Good for you! I had a Coca-Cola addiction real bad. I, too, stopped drinking it. It's a journey, isn't it? Plus, you have people that can help guide you, so that's cool as well.

  • Noirluv45

    What happened to the days when people left nature alone? It angers me because God doesn't need anyone's help. Their interference is making things worse. SMH.

  • Naomi

    Good luck! I was vegan for two years but then got lazy and went back to being vegetarian. Haven't eaten meat in 5 years and don't eat dairy anyway since it messes up my stomach. The recipes are great. If you're looking for some more, go to Oh My Veggies. They have great recipes and meal plans. Again, good luck to you and your hubby!

  • Noirluv45

    I know! Isn't that something? They are trying to invite us to ingest that mess.

    Same. LOL You won't believe how many people are surprised that the first words out of my mouth ARE NOT: Hi, I'm Naomi. I'm vegan.

  • DynoMight

    Hey "Coy little wink" ? I LOVE your tag name, lol. I love chips too. I just make them on my own using sweet potatos or Japanese potatoes which are less sweet (find the at our local Chinatown grocer). I use grapeseed oil or extra virgin olive oil, but any plant-based high smoke oil works.

    Better a gal (yes, I know the picture of JJ WALKER is confusing, lol) from the south, flavor and texture are important. I simply recreate the things I love sans the diary, fat and preservatives. I don't buy "fake meat" products and I make my own vegan gluten free breads, buns, burgers (TVP, black beans, etc), sauces, etc. I just made vegan fudge brownies with vegan chocolate, no eggs or diary. Research flax eggs for recipes to start. It's possible. Working on a cookbook now. ??

  • NicoleZee

    You can still be healthy and eat meat. You can eat organic or vegetarian meat. I just believe that humans need meat, we're omnivores. I'm not about to eat like a bunny for the rest of my life! No way in hell I'm giving up lemon pepper chicken wings, no way! You balance your diet. It's okay to eat the bad stuff in moderation, NOT every day! Luckily, I have endless food allergies, so I don't have much to choose from anyway :(.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Actually that's a white thing. My dad had receipts from 20 yrs ago. Mom NEVER kept them.

  • ShelbyMoore

    I need some recipes....I started last year and I've been trying to figure the entire thing out still (October will be one year). I will say, I feel the difference between when I eat meat and when I don't eat meat.

    When I don't eat meat, my acne clears up, I feel lighter, more energetic, etc., but when I eat meat, I have mad acne, I'm luggish, etc.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Like anything else
    One day at a time. For me I'm happy with the small conscious changes: I make my caramel macchiato at home instead of Starbucks
    I control what coffee milk & other is added, ensuring it's best quality of "the bad stuff" if I have to

  • ShelbyMoore

    Where do you find your recipes?

  • Coy little wink

    Thanks ? your name is pretty bomb too ?

    A cookbook...wow that is awesome...make it happen I will purchase! I love cookbooks I have a growing collection...

  • DynoMight

    Hey ShelbyMoore, I'm actually working on a cookbook now.

    What do you like to eat?

    The key is to think plant-based. You do not have to cut out the flavors you love, just the things you (use to) use to flavor them. Agave instead of refined sugar. Sea salt or kosher salt instead of table salt. The other thing is recreating textures. I even make Baltimore-style lump crab cakes with NO crab, vegan style. How? With the correct spices, chickpeas and dulse flakes..

    Tell me what you like to eat and I'll post something for ya. Imagine collard greens with no smoked pork... but still smoky and delisously vegan and healthy! ????

  • unknown user

    I could've sworn on the last season of lhhatl he was in a scene eating a chicken wing. Is this new.? I could be wrong. ?

    I feel you them lemon pepper chicken wings is a must have and I get mad when I tell someone to make them wet and come back dry as ever with a whole bunch of lemon pepper seasoning on them don't do it.

    I guess.

    You are welcome. I know, it's a narcotic, but it helps. I also take Immitrex, but it causes nausea. I have a long list of drug allergies, so I can't take anything over the counter and nothing with codeine. Morphine is my go to drug for migraines or post op surgery pain! However, it doesn't work for all types of pain and insurance companies are cracking down on much of a narcotic patients can receive. People keep recommending marijuana to me, I have pelvic pain too from having endometriosis, but I'll pass. I doubt it would be strong enough plus it stinks, I just prefer narcotics :).

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Yeah, that's a whole nother conversation ?

  • NicoleZee

    But wait, with a government job, if you have a medical condition and have to take a narcotic, wouldn't that be okay if you have a prescription???

  • Darkandlovely617?

    It's definitely mind over matter. I ain't ready yet.
    Have fun! So many great recipes out there.

    I'll join you nevuary 3061, again: I ain't ready.

  • DynoMight

    Thank you, Elevated Soul ??? It's very cool that you limit your meat and diary consumption. I started out vegetarian, then vegan and on my way to raw vegan. I stray away from the word "diet" as well as judging others as they seek to find what's best for them psychologically. We both know it's healthier to stick with alkaline foods to balcance acidity. We also know it's not easy being fly unless you give up the fried foods, lol. I support you in Spirit. Stay strong and keep your ID handy, lol ??

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    You make it sound very tasty & feasible...Please hurry up w/your cookbook. Thanks in advance. ??

  • DynoMight

    God bless you for your positive vibes. I feel them and return them. I will. I do many things for us and use this platform as a backup and to keep my hand on the pulse of social media, being the INFJ/I'm not on "Wastebook" aka Facebook small business woman I am. I'm not for the masses, but I do teach classes... lol. Stay tuned... stay close... I promise to always share my test notes. ;) #OfLife

  • hottlanta

    How folks gonna tell people not to eat real meat but eat fake meat. Ain't nothing natural about something being fake, DUH!!! These are the same people that will go out and buy a real leather purse instead of a fake leather purse. I buy/eat real meat but I buy fake purses. I bet all three of them wear real leather shoes. Notice how the wealthy has the time and money to live that lifestyle and poor people don't. That is why they call Whole Foods, whole paycheck. I went to look at some of their muffins and it had on there eat within a day and cost $10.00. If I pay that kind of money for some muffins I want some chemicals so they can sit on the shelf for at least a week. Then l gain weight because I paid all of that money for those muffins and chopping them down so they won't expire soon.

  • hottlanta

    Betta ask somebody.

  • DynoMight

    Lol.... I don't smoke or drink... but if I did rock with the herb.... I'd be like Bob Marley. Anything that you can give to a kid to heal them can't be bad in moderation. Sister do yo' thang. Get lifted so you can lift ish. I'm with you, I just don't want that contact smoke, lol. I'm already high on beet juice, berries and ish. Lol

  • Ms Thang

    I have some vegan sisters on my friends list that's always posting sweaty pictures of themselves after a workout and vegan meals they made. This has been going on for about 3 years now and they still look the same and the oldest is always in the e.r sick or aching. They're still 250lbs.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Actually Mya is an advocate for Raw Vegan lifestyle. She gives tips and also her make-Up and shoes are vegan and cruelty free. She fell off a few times she admitted before but have been steady for a few years. If you follow her you will know. Can't speak for Russell Simmons but Mya is good in my book.

  • Ms Thang

    ??I just finished talking about these 250lbs vegan sisters. If the oldest sister not in the emergency room for sinus and high blood pressure, she's complaining about her back and knees.

  • BlahBlahBlah

    I saw What the Health, it was very, very, informativ went cold turkey Vegetarian this week and I feel like crap, but im used to caffeine, sugar, chips, candy, meats, dairy and my body is detoxing.

  • BlahBlahBlah

    Do you boo, but black folks is catching diabetes like a cold.

  • Phyllis

    Thanks so much for your support . I will definitely check out their website as well.

  • BlahBlahBlah

    This is true, like a cheat meal you can enjoy it and incorporate a healthy lifestyle of some activities that make sweat a lil.

  • brooklyn23

    For real.... not only do you lack nutrients (supplements aren't the same as getting it directly through food) but there are plenty of fat vegans why? ....because either they were fat prior to becoming a vegan or they became fat after becoming a Vegan replacing healthy fats with , freaking pasta, bread, sweet junk food, etc

  • hottlanta

    That is the side they don't want you to see. In the real world I see it all the time.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Lol ?

  • hottlanta

    Halle is thin she is a diabetic. She has never been overweight. I also have a girlfriend who is what we see as healthy and has extreme high blood pressure whereas I got a girlfriend who can go out and shake the hell outta some salt and doesn't have high blood pressure. All of our bodies are different and we have to do things in moderation. When I was young and we didn't have meat we were poor and know if you don't eat meat when you have some money you are a vegetarian. My how times have changed. Farrah Fawcett was a vegan and still got cancer.

  • hottlanta

    I want my makeup and stuff animal tested. If it kills an animal it will kill me.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Yes it would be ok. I'm more or less talking about getting a migraine at work and taking morphine as a remedy on the clock lol

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Immitrex makes me drowsy

  • speakinmymind

    @DynoMight, keep me in the loop as well. Ive started and fell off a few times due to my own laziness to experiment with more vegan food options but I so desire to make a permanent lifestyle change.

  • speakinmymind

    Thanks for the info Naomi!

    Here's best diet tip: stop drinking sugar. I only drink water. No juice, diet soda, milk, coffee or tea. Monday through Friday, I stick to a plant-based diet. On the weekends, I eat whatever I want, in moderation.

  • Disappointed

    I say do everything in moderation, listen to your body and live life.

  • Elevated Soul

    I make sure to drink a green smoothie atleast 5 times a week.....i also drink Aloe Vera juice too...

  • Elevated Soul

    My eating window is between 11 pm and 7 pm. and then my 16 hour fast begin.

    A friend of mine has a eating window from 12 pm- 8 pm but 8 is too late for me to eat.I usually finish eating between 6:00 PM to 6::30 PM

  • Elevated Soul

    LOL.........My eating window is between 11am to 7 pm....

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Wait...Whet!? They lying then....I know some fat vegetarians but all the vegans I know are skinty honey..

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    RIGHT....Veganism is EXPENSIVE....Sandra Rose need to do a blog post oh how to become Vegan living paycheck to paycheck while living in the hood which are food desserts<<<This is a real term ...look it up...

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Diabetes and vegan are not the same....if you eat healthy and eliminate your sugar and work out you can erraidicate the need for meds on Type II ..I know people who have done this.

  • Mister Fantastic

    And not taking a "break" from sippin lean?
    STOP IT!

  • SDot

    I love mya. I tried Vegan but man it's hella expensive.

  • DynoMight

    That's super. Yes, I bought the book the Sister wrote regarding green smoothies. It's available online. The recipes are phenomenal for those smoothies. I also juice via my Breville juicer. Sounds like you are totally on track. Thanks for the inspiration. ??? Keep it up. With you in Spirit. -DG ??

  • Shamari123

    Waka looks like the guy version of Teyana Taylor (in the after pic up top).

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    1) Drink enough water to match your body weight: 200 pounds is about 134 oz of water.
    2) Cook most of the food you eat at home.
    3) Limit refined sugar and carbs as much as possible. These carbs that get absorbed slowly into our systems, avoiding spikes in blood sugar levels. Examples: whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and beans. We can minimize the health risk of bad carbs by eating fewer refined and processed carbohydrates that strip away beneficial fiber. Examples: white bread and white rice.
    ***Do periodic detoxes......2-3 year.
    4) Exercise (errands, chores and daily activity doesn't count) 30-35 mins a day of rigorous activity...whatever you enjoy doing the most that get your heart rate up.
    5) Sleep 7-8 hours to balance your sugar levels so you eliminate your cravings...ever notice how your cravings are intensified when your sleep deprived.
    6) Eliminate stress
    7) Eat bacon. Bacon makes everything better.....

    or win the lotto and hire a chef that can make you the bomb azz vegan meals...

  • Ms Thang

    Hey I don't get it either. The younger sister talk about her extreme work out session with her trainer, kick boxing and sh!t and I just figured she would be more tone but she's a cute girl.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    That's what I been telling folks about Dr. Sebi...no disrespect...but he obviously DID NOT have the cure.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    No. Soy is the devil. I've done research...

  • hottlanta

    Are they healthy skinny or scary looking sick skinny. Skinny doesn't mean healthy. Even with Wendy. Even though she is skinny she needs to do some weight training for muscle tone. She looks scary and sickly. She has that ole white woman body with no azz as they get older.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Those green smoothies will get you right. I lose 10lbs everytime I do my 10 day fast.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Now that's some Tea!

  • Queen B

    Being a vegetarian is hard let alone a vegan i don't even know where to start ? I love some chicken wings but i can give up a few things. I dont buy sodas but will drink them if i go out to eat every now and then. I love my cake and ice cream too ?

  • ShelbyMoore

    I am willing to cook just about anything. I eat a lot of quinoa, tofu, squash, beans, peas, lentil, salads, etc. Sometimes it just gets boring.

  • Malcom Flex

    Vegan? That's why they're calling HIV?

  • Malcom Flex

    LOL

  • kgirl33

    If going vegan please don't substitute real meat for fake meat. It's just as bad AND expensive. Cut out sugar, dairy (yes that includes cheese) and and anything white. Avoid Soy and protein shakes. Get your protein from beans and lentils. Just overall eat plant based. I've noticed a difference in my energy level and dropped 10 pounds without even trying. If it's not for you so be it, but don't knock anyone else's journey.

  • Elevated Soul

    They sure will get you right.....

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    So from 7 pm until 11 pm you don't eat

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Occasionally

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Hmmmm...LOL

  • Elevated Soul

    Right....I take a 16 hour break from eating every day but it's not as hard as it seem.....You can even see videos on You-Tube about it and you will see many are doing this. Some people even do a longer daily fast.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Dennis Rodman never pretended to be anything other than a freak. Not sure about all those dycks you're attributing to him tho...

    And Mya is taking your advice because she's got more miles than a box chevy.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I don't recall her ever laying it all out so I did it for her. I wanted to give her whoring the documentary feel it requires.

    Good day.

  • Cici

    I switched to a plant based diet and I feel so much better. I have so much energy, feel much happier, and my mind seems so much clearer (if that's a word lol). I also had reproductive issues (no menstruation) for a long time, and I've recently became regular through diet change. Sorry to be personal, but just wanted to give my testimony. As I stated in another post DIET IS EVERYTHING!!!!!!!

  • Noirluv45

    Amen! Nail hit on head.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Look here Biggie Smalls, you don't know a thing about me so you can stop doing three things immediately:

    For one, don't act like you and I are acquainted because we are not. So don't act like you know something about me that you clearly do not.

    Two, don't ever think you can come on a chat forum and put me in my place based on your misguided, ill-informed and ignorant perceptions.

    Three, I will write whatever the hell I choose to write and you are free to not read it, or kiss my ass, or both.

    Good day.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    She really didn't though. She kept it from the public, but not from the industry.

    Sandra KNOWS I'm not lying. LOL.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    The same way I know there's a Sun in the sky: I open my eyes and see.

  • hottlanta

    So why are you not talking about the men. They are the good one's. That has gotten so lame and ole. Why you all up in her business. Handle your own. Don't think somebody don't know anything about you. I am sure they have stories since you always have the 411 on everybody else. People who have lives don't have time to worry about someone else's life.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Precious, sweetheart, I'm not here to impress you. I mean, who are you for me to try and sway?

    I post whatever I choose to post wherever I choose about whomever I choose. I don't care that you don't like it. All that shows me is you're as dumb as you look--arguing with a stranger over somebody that don't give a damn about you. LOL.

    I haven't spent my life working at Church's Chicken, where you appear to have spent a significant number of years, both behind the grill and at the drive-thru. If I post it, its real.

    Sorry you're bothered but i think you'll get over it.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Nothing worse than a hypocrite.

    Except an unattractive one, which she is.

  • Mark mcharm

    And i doubt she slept with wacka i kind of think that is bs if you see the age difference now i do know jay z and the game have . but i have met mya a few times she is ok by me men do it all the time.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I think I'm equal opportunity. Maybe you haven't been paying attention.

    I don't have an algorithm on who I talk shyt about because its really not that serious. I do happen to be well-plugged so I can pretty much dish dirt on damn near anybody noteworthy.

    I usually don't. I visit Sandra's site just about every day and more often than not, I don't go there even when she posts about people I don't like.

    At other times, I let it out. And when I air it out, I don't hold much back. It is what it is. Its become sort of therapeutic as well.

    Sorry you're bothered but i can't assure you that i care how you feel either way hun.

  • bashi

    Yes I transitioning to fully vegan I love it.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Honey you are making it clear that you don't know anything about what you're talking about.

    Since when does age difference matter to a professional baller hunter? You sound naive as hell boo.

    And I'm sorry but meeting Mya "a few times" does not qualify you as an expert on who is hiding between her legs.

  • Dr. P

    I didn't bother reading your long ass thread. Shut.up.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    But you're used to it. The only difference is you don't even have enough sense to get your cell phone bill paid.

    Then again, judging by that pic, you're lucky if you get a bag of snacks from Dollar Tree for what you're offering.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    ...But obviously you did boo, with your mentally challenged big ass. LOL.

    And here's some fashion advice hun: brown makes you look like a UPS truck.

    Leave the packages at the front office sweetie.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Oh, P.S., God in Heaven knows I need to work on my credit. I actually don't have any to speak of. Not anything recent, actually. That's because everything I need or own is paid for.

    And when I need anything outside of that, I tend to pay CASH.

    I thought you could use that clarification.

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Well dam

  • DynoMight

    So sincerely happy for you. No health; no wealth. Keep it up!

  • Isignedup4this

    It's a pic the actress Mo'Nique, moron. Your mammy didn't raise you well, and the absence of your father shows.

  • Cici

    Thank you! ?

  • Peter Piper ATL

    And of all the pics in the world, you chose THAT. Makes me think you two are twins.

    I didn't magnify the pic so I assumed it was you since I saw a big, blurry unattractive object. i'm sure you get that a lot.

    And "moron" is not a read honey, so stop trying to be clever. Sounds like something Daisey Duke would say in an attempt to read.

    In any case, this doesn't lessen your lameness. And I'd recommend you play in the front yard with the kiddies hun because you're out of your weight class coming this way.

  • Cici

    Just gradually remove meat and any other thing you want to stop eating. You can take it meal by meal and go from there.

  • Lady_Elle

    Really happy for you!!!
    So many health benefits!
    How long has it been for you?

  • Lady_Elle

    I will read up on Soy and Protein shakes. It makes sense to get protein from beans and lentils.

  • Lady_Elle

    I have seriously been thinking about this as a start for some time.
    I don't really do soda.... but it will be tough to subtract coffee for me.
    I will try it starting in September.

  • Dr. P

    I bet everyone in your life hates you. You won't shut the phuck up. Your never ending typing and talking are the primary reason you're single and unable to maintain healthy relationships.

    Even your parents, well your mammy hates you because I KNOW your sperm donor ran away faster than his nut leaked down your mammy's leg. He's the lucky one. Meanwhile you're ass won't let me live.

    Your wife backed mammy is my profiles inspiration and twin. They hate her ass too, down yo the church. Tell her to stop phucking Deacon Roddenberry.

    If you will excuse me, I'm boarding my flight to D.C. and I'm done with you MORON. I've given you more attention than your daddy ever will.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Be careful eating or drinking Soy. It's loaded with isoflavones, which can mimic estrogens and can lead to estrogen dominance syndrome.

  • Cici

    Thank you!!! I literally started 2 weeks ago, but I'm really strict. It's totally worth it. I would try off, and on for years but I would never stick with it. I'm totally making the lifestyle change.

  • NicoleZee

    Oh yeah! If you took that while working, you'd need a couch so you could lay down! You're not supposed to drive while on it either.

  • hottlanta

    Alrighty now and have a safe flight.

  • NicoleZee

    I eat organic or vegetarian chicken or just vegetables if I get tired of meat. I'm not a health nut though. I jog, do yoga, just want to be healthier. I used to have a bunny rabbit back in the day. All they eat are vegetables and those rabbit food pellets! I can't just eat greens every day! My mom loves salads with unhealthy salad dressing. I don't know how she eats that shit. That's too many greens, and if the salad dressing is unhealthy, what's the point of eating the greens to begin with???

  • NicoleZee

    I love the wings at J.R. Crickets. Delish! I can't eat at too many places due to food allergies but I can eat there and I don't have any kind of allergic reaction. I always order the lemon pepper wings and fries. I wonder what kind of chicken they use though, I hope it doesn't have hormones in it! I should ask next time! I have to keep it simple with food or I'll end up in the morgue :(! I can't even really try new foods unless I know every ingredient in it. I mostly make my own food, that's better anyway. And I definitely don't eat nasty ass fast food. How do people eat that shit every other day??? Gross, unsanitary, and unhealthy!

  • Cici

    I feel you ?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I have never liked coffee or tea. However, letting go of creme soda was hard for me. I actually went through sugar withdrawal. After a few months, I didn't miss soda anymore and I noticed I had lost weight.

    Monday through Friday, I eat of lot of fresh salads, fruits, and veggies. If I eat meat, it's baked or grilled salmon. On the weekends, I reward myself with a burger, a large slice of pizza or a piece of German chocolate cake. I don't believe in depriving myself of fatty foods. I simply eat them in moderation and make them a small part of my diet. I also drink more than 2 liters of water a day.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I don't have time for complicated meal plans. Fresh salads, fruits, and veggies are easily prepared. And water is everywhere.
