Vegan Weight Loss Support
The term vegan used to represent the foul odor of the old health and vitamin
food stores. It's "poster children" were the zealots that were against
everything and anything, and made it almost impossible to get through a meal
without hearing "you're not going to eat that, are you?" But many people
tried it anyway, because not only is it a healthy choice, it can be a great
way to lose weight as well.
The most challenging part of going vegan was that without dairy, eggs, fish,
meat, it was almost impossible to put together a meal at home, much less a
meal when you were at work or out with friends. Even if you did manage to
put together lunch or dinner vegan style, you were often left hungry.
When you're a vegan, it takes a lot to feel full, and often times, you're
left so unsatisfied, that you ultimately give up the vegan lifestyle. Even
though you knew going vegan was a healthy choice, you ended up finding it
too difficult to maintain and you ended up swinging to the absolute other
end of the pendulum, eating more cheese and meat than you ever did prior to
being a vegan. Being vegan just wasn't easy, or practical.
Luckily, being a vegan has taken on a whole new cool persona. With books
like skinny bitch, organic offerings from gourmet groceries like Whole
Foods, "vegan" has gone commercial and it's suddenly become a lot easier to
have great tasting foods without a trace of dairy or meat. Being a vegan
has enormous health benefits and the next natural step becomes, how do you
find low calorie vegan recipes? How do you find vegan foods that will also
help you lose weight?

How does PEERtrainer work and how will it help me lose weight?
If you are like most people, you know how to lose weight and get fit, but simply have a hard time following through. PEERtrainer was built to help you follow through, via daily logging and peer support. It is easy to get started--you log your food, exercise, thoughts each day. This takes about 5 minutes, and is a great habit to develop. You do this in small weight loss groups of 4 and larger "teams". The logging makes you much more aware of your habits. The group members read your logs and keep you motivated and supported. This tight integration of logging with free online weight loss support groups is very effective. It is also a unique and patent-pending process.

The Importance of Social Support and Self-Monitoring
Group and peer support is a highly proven method for losing weight and getting healthy. It is one thing to learn how to lose weight and eat more healthy, it is another thing to put this into practice on a consistent basis. Friends and family are of limited use because there is only so much burden they can bear. Getting the support of an anonymous group of people each day can make the critical difference. Self-monitoring is the other method, backed by volumes of research, that is highly correlated with weight loss success. You keep a log of your food, exercise, goals and thoughts. When you do this each day it keeps you accountable to yourself, and brings this aspect of your life to the top of your mental agenda. When you are writing each day, you are thinking about the things you write about. This begins to change how you think and facilitates better decision making. When you make better decisions, and have a broad support network, you are very likely to lose weight for the long term. When you do both these things, the odds of success increase dramatically.
