TIA!

Hi Carley,

Not much protein in your eating plan so there will be a lot of muscle wastage.

To give the best advice I would need to know how much of each food you are eating and your height, weight and age. Plus how much physical activity you do each day.

Dude can I ask what the deal is with you listing your CV at the bottom of your posts?

Like anyone cares?

Hi Janeyc,

The reason I list my CV as it gives a lot of people confidence in my advice. There is a lot of false information provided by so many do gooders that it is making the weight loss journey even harder for some. You may not care about my credentials but from the PM's I get and the emails I think they are well received. I have just read all your posts. Maybe you could do with some professional advice.

I am also a paid advertiser on weightloss.com.au, the fee's I pay help keep this forum hosted and open for people just like yourself looking for free advice and support. We are not permitted to post links to our business so a little plug in our signature block makes the hours of free advice worth it.

Hope you have a great day

Dane
No CV this time, you know more than me.

Hi Carley!
Wow- difficult decision going vego, good luck with it! There are a lot of yummy and good for you foods out there, and it looks as if you're already steering clear of the pitfalls of vegetarianism i.e. lots of creamy pastas!!! Like Dane mentioned, it can be difficult getting enough protein in your diet, and there are lots of plant based sources...nuts and seeds, legumes, and soy products. Good on you, I wish you luck in adapting to your new lifestyle - if you ever want any yummy and healthy recipes, you can PM me... I loves me veggies!!!

The advice may be well received by some, the snark less so. If you are here to present yourself in a professional capacity it would more professional not to insult potential clients.

EWQ,

I carry myself in a professional capacity at all times, this is an open forum and as such the comments made are dimensional based on the author and reader. I have great support from other members and they see my advice for what it is based on scientific fact and real world results and "Free". I charge extra for the humour. I don't see Janeyc or any other member as a pontential client. Not everyone can afford the time or the money for my paid advice so as my "Warm fuzzy" feeling I give back to this forum. I don't see how offering professional advice to janeyc is an insult.

It has been great to add to this forum, I have met some great people who will continue to have my support. But EWQ and Janeyc just make it a waste of energy.

Good louck to you all.

Dane

I don't think that's fair. Janeyc has clearly indicated what she thought of your advice so offering it was clearly not neccessary and I believe EWQ has made her feelings clear previously. Why not just stick with the people who do want it with out provoking fights and snide remarks?

I have no problems with your advice, Dane. It's when you insult members of the forum that your posts become a problem. And while you may pretend that your advice to JaneyC was purely professional, or just humour, it is easy to see that "I have just read all your posts. Maybe you could do with some professional advice." is a snide remark intended as an insult.

If you feel you have the right to post a ten line CV in every post then by all means defend your position. A few of us have asked why you feel it is necessary so your explanation is appreciated. But try to do it without insulting other members of the forum. Even as a paid advertiser you haven't bought the right to do that.

I think rudeness attracts more rudeness, I find the only stupid questions are the ones never asked but if you re read the manner in which Janeyc wrote it, it could easily be mistaken as rude. I am merely stating from my personal view that if [email protected] takes the time to write a little bit of information that is actually from the professional point of view then posting a few fact about himself may make you feel more comfortable seeing that he is a trained person in fitness then why do we have a problem with it? If like what janeyc said "no one cares" why are we making a issue about it?. I don't see the harm in him posting his information in his signature if it isn't breaking any forum rules. I don't really view his personal information any differently to a weight loss ticker/pregnancy ticker/wedding ticker. The information that he has in his signature is all to do with fitness of some sort and this is a weight loss forum. Maybe we all just need to be a little more tolerant ..... unfortunately when dealing with the public/public area's you cant control who or what you have to put up with.... its just like smelly people on public transport... just hold your breath and hope they get off soon. :wink: peace guys lets not loss sight that were all here to support each other.

I agree to, I definatly construed it as nasty and pointless. I just feel that if someone takes the time to offer advice they shouldnt be attacked for doing so. Its only by asking questions and receiving feedback that we learn things to help us on our journeys.
