Your Questions About Weight Loss Blogs

Jenny asks…

Does anyone know of a site that is specifically for blogging about weight loss?

I am planning on starting a diet and would like to blog about it and be inspiring to others who are dieting an get discouraged. Because I know the struggle, my weight loss might not be as life threatening as it maybe to others but it’s important to me. & I would like to share my story with those who it would encourage to pick up and try again.

Maricela answers:


Take a look at – it’s free and easy and you’ll find a lot of support there. In the last couple of days, there’ve been a few missions started dedicated to weight loss (a couple women who’ve lost 20+ already and want to lose 20 more).

There is a lot of support, encouragement and accountability – and you’ll get an opportunity to inspire a lot of people if you’re successful! Hope that you’ll check it out!

Sharon asks…

what cleanse should i do to just start my weight loss?

I want to do a cleanse to jump start my weight loss and i wanted some suggestions. I really lack discipline and that is why i never stay on a weight loss program. I want a cleanse to help me to jump start a lifestyle change. I’ve heard about the master cleanse/lemonade diet. I wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions. I am not starting a cleanse to just lose weight for a specific event, i want it to be a precursor to a lifestyle change.

Maricela answers:

The basics of weight loss are not as complicated as people make it out to be. You need to simply change your diet to healthy whole foods, fruits and veggies and get plenty of exercise.

It all depends on what you want to get out of it. Check out my fitness blog for more fitness info and ideas:

Lizzie asks…

What commercial weight loss programs are vegan?

I lost 90 pounds on a “whole plant based diet” (healthy vegan), but want help in losing another 60 pounds. Are there any commercial weight loss programs that are “vegan” in nature?

Gina Kolata describes the abysmal record of the most popular programs including Weight Watchers, Atkins, and medically supervised calorie restricted diets. Her deep research indicated that the vast majority of people fail to maintain much weight loss over a period of a few years.

What commercial programs are available to vegans?

Maricela answers:

Commercial diet programs sometimes rely on pre-packaged foods. They are not commonly associated with whole foods or with plant-based foods.

Congratulations on your 90-pound weight loss! Most likely, you are now feeling much more energetic and exercising more each day. Since you have been so successful, and you have been eating plant-based whole foods, you must have been doing much of your own cooking.

I think you will like these websites to help you with webcasts, blogs, recipes, and nutritional information. Perhaps you have already seen them.

John asks…

Is there a site online like a blog, where you can write about weight loss with other people?

I want to write a diary about progess with weight loss, but I want help from other people if that’s possible. Are there any online blogging sites that could be used for this?
Or what blogging sites are there in general?

Maricela answers:

My favorite web site for diet and health related interest is the following:

It’s based on a pure vegetarian lifestyle which has proven success in improvements to health and well being. I lost 80+ pounds by following a whole plant based diet. It’s the same diet that Bill Clinton is trying because of his cardiovascular disease.
