Celebrity Role Model: Maggie Q

Actress Maggie Q is proof that vegans and plant-based dieters can be strong, fit, and healthy! She’s currently kicking ass on my favorite show, Nikita, on the CW on Fridays, 8/7c, and she’s even getting her cast members to try out vegan dishes as well.

So why does Maggie Q follow a plant-based diet?

“I feel better, I have more energy on and off the set, and I have the satisfaction of knowing that I’m doing something to help stop animal suffering.” -Maggie Q

Maggie Q is a role model because she’s also an animal activist. She volunteers at shelters, helps out at fundraisers, and she has rescued all of her dogs from the shelter.

What kinds of plant based foods does Maggie eat on set?

Green smoothies! Her favorite smoothie contains a blended mixture of kale, green apples, parsley, chard, celery, ginger, cucumber, and a hint of honey.

She also makes homemade veggie pho, which is an awesome vegan noodle soup.

Convinced yet that a plant-based diet is the way to go?

    I am 16 and have been obese before but have slim down fueccsssully. I am here to share how to achieve it so read on, it may change your life. IF YOU ARE FRIGHTEN ABOUT HOW LONG THE PASSAGE IS, just read the 2nd and 5th paragraph onwards about mindset and setting a target.Firstly, you have to have the mindset to lose weight! Without it you would not be as successful. In the past when i am over-weight, I did not care about my body and continued living, thinking that it would be alright growing up fat but society are just as cruel I did not change until an incident which inspires me to be healthy and look good.So you need to think of a target and the reasons for you to lose weight. It could be anything like wanting to look good or for health reasons. Anytime you feel like giving up, think of your target and work towards it.Secondly, food intake should be lesser by 1/5 but eat all your 3 meals. And only eat when you are hungry although there are times when you do not know you are hungry or not(like me, weird stomach) so stick to your meals. Of course, eat healthier food. Details of healthy food or how to make it healthy can be found in the Internet or books.Thirdly, find a sport or activity that will make you lose weight. Make that activity like your personal habit and do it often. I chose basketball as my friends play it and now i am good at it so make a wise decision of which sport to choose and go for it, no slacking. Surely there would be difficult as you would be in a disadvantage as you would be look down on because of your size. For example, you are playing soccer with your friends and they choose you to be the goalkeeper because of your size. That means you would be standing at the goalpost most of the time- result, no weight loss. Repel! Say that you want to be another position like a striker and make them pay! Go for the ball! Play the game like you would not play it again! Play it with your heart! That way you could take advantage of your desires- result, a lot of weight loss. I could not go on cause of time limit and laziness, although I still can say a lot. But the mindset thing is already enough, the most important aspect of losing weight is that! REMEMBER, every time when you are about to give up, every time when you are lazy to go out to exercise, every time when you want to eat extra, every time you step into a fast food restaurant AND every time you are tempted to do sometime that you know that would foil your attempt on losing weight, think about your target, about what you have been through for the past years, being look down because of your size. If that is not enough of a reason Think of your FUTURE, predict. What would you be like when you grow up. Would you get the boyfriend/girlfriend that you are dreaming for? Or someone who you would marry for the sake of marrying. Or do you think you could get a partner that you like just with your character or personality alone? That only happens in fairy tales The modern world is not that kind nowadays.So come on! Change yourself! Do your body a favor! Give yourself a chance to make yourself look good. Whenever you feel like losing hope, read this again and think about what you can achieve when you lost every pounds of fats and attain your dream body. That would be enough for you to make the decision to change for yourself.I ended up typing too much, lol. So all this are from my personal point of view and all comes from experience. Haha, maybe I should be a weight loss counselor or something.I have lost 20kg from obese(severely overweight) to healthy weight because of the power of the mindset.. If I can do it, so can you
