  1. wjkk wjkf im 24, male, im not amritdhari but around 6 months ago i decided not to cut my hair. around the same time i decided to stop eating meat too. my hair are around shoulder length now but iv noticed that my hair fall out a lot! i dont know if this is because i have stopped cutting it or the change of diet, maybe i dont know how to take care of longer hair? i dont know but im getting kinda worried now. my hair is curly so they get tangled sometimes and i end up pulling it. i just run my hand through my hair and so much comes out! when i was my hair its even worse. also i use to get a haircut once a week and mostly on the sides and iv noticed that the hair on the sides is really weak and growing really slow. i use to have a gutti when i was small but my dad cut it off when i was around 6, wish he didn't do that now. also since iv stopped eating meat all iv been eating is crisp, sweets and chocolates and other unhealthy stuff, i feel so drained and exhausted. i feel so tired all the time, i never use to feel like this before. can you guys help me out, like what else can i eat? what does everyone else eat? something that will make me feel less tired. thanks

They will help you diet better and use your time efficiently, if wanting to lose weight through exercise. You should be able to get them from the local library like I did.
  3. I'm 23 and Mona. But the last year or so iv become really interested in sikhi. Iv stopped eating meat about a month back, stopped drinking, I read paath in the morning sometimes, do simran and have started going gurudwara 3/4 times a week, I only use to go like 3 times a year before! My parents have noticed the change too, dad thinks it's funny while mum is supportive. I have had the temptation to drink(I use to drink everyday) but each time I remind myself of trying to become a better sikh and not ruin it, which does help. Last few weeks iv been thinking of not cutting my hair anymore but I'm not ready to grow dhari out yet.everyone starts somewhere. Or is there really no point in just keeping my hair but trimming beard? Just really confused dont know what to do. I never thought I would become vegetarian and then have thoughts of keeping my hair. Also now that I don't eat meat I have started eating alot of crisps,sweets, chocolates.energy drinks etc! This isn't good, so just wondering what does everyone else eat? Thing is I only have goreh kaleh and pakistanis around me so I don't know who to discuss this with. Sisters an atheist, mum don't know much and dad does Hindu stuff! My relatives/family are a dysfunctional bunch! No point me discussing with them
  4. This has been bothering me for some time now. It is as the title says, why does our respect for life stop with vegetarianism? When I suggest Sikhs should consider becoming vegan, it is become of the horrendous atrocities that occur within the dairy industry. Cows are forcefully artificially inseminated so that they get pregnant and lactate (produce milk) Their calves are taken from them so they don't drink the profits and then slaughtered for veal. They spend their whole lives in chains and being abused. Becoming pregnant and producing milk so often that raw milk is full of blood, puss and infection. They are injected with hormones and bred so that their udders swell to unnatural sizes, causing them immense pain, just so they are able to produce more.. Is this right? Can Sikhi justify this? I've reached a point where I've started to laugh at Sikhs that claim to be righteous because they are vegetarian because to kill for meat is wrong, but don't want to hear about dairy abuse. Is torturing for milk acceptable? It would be more humane to just kill the animal and take its meat rather than let it live and make it suffer! Perhaps Guruji never condemned the use of milk because perhaps in their time it was different. Perhaps there was not this evil level of greed that exists today. People just took what they needed/could from their farm cows. But times have changed and the treatment of cows in dairy farms is absolutely barbaric. How can we as Sikhs allow this to happen? The truth about dairy is no secret. There are volumes of information available, just as there are about the truth of meat industries. Yet why have Sikhs not taken an official stand to no longer be part of this cruelty? How can we happily be just vegetarian when true respect and value for life comes from being vegan?
  5. I have recently started going to the gym to gain some muscle. I have noticed that rather than finding it difficult to actually lift weights because they are too heavy, my problem is I become very fatigued over all very quickly (lack of stamina). I think it may partly be due to a VERY unhealthy diet. Could anyone please advise a simple diet plan which would provide me with enough energy needed for training? If you could incorporate punjabi foods into that that would be really nice of you . Obviously purely vegetarian.
