I know there's a fine line between living a healthy lifestyle and an obsession, but isn't being obsessed with exercise and what you eat just as disordered thinking as restricting and whatnot?

Being an advocate for your health is not a negative thing. No one else will do it for you.

Saying that a person who watches what they is eat is just like a person with an eating disorder is like saying that every person who drinks alcohol is an alcoholic. There is a difference between a person consumed by a mental illness and addiction a person who can go out with a few friends and have a cocktail.

Alcoholics are consumed by their drug, their life is destroyed and they have no control over their life anymore. That is not the same as a person who Drinks a little too much at a party every couple of months.
See the difference?

A person with an eating disorder is consumed by their disease. Their life is not enjoyable. A person who lives a healthy life with a healthy mindset enjoys food and their life! They enjoy being healthy and active! Being passionate about fitness is not the same as someone who is consumed by calories in calories out mentality.

That’s the best way I know how to explain it lol.

I''ve been losing weight for nearly a year and i have lost a lot but i still need to shed a few pounds but i cant seem to do that. Also it doesnt help when my parents force me to eat loads of carbs and high calorie foods, what shall i do? and i don't have a lot of energy for exercising either so i hardly exercise that much??:)

Carbs and high calories foods won’t stop your process. Healthy carbs are great for you! And sounds like you need more of them, if you’re lacking the energy to workout.
I would reevaluate your calorie goal, my guess is that you’re under eating. Check out my “BMR” page, I explain how under eating can halt weightloss.
Also read my “clean eating 101” page, carbs can be healthy when from the right sources!
And exercise is important, I would considering creating a fitness routine. Your body could simply be telling you to work harder now 8)

I recently started to slowly get in to the process of becoming vegan. I have done some research and watched documentaries about it. My question and worry is that the lack of vitamin B12 will harm me in any way. I really want to become vegan because of all the health factors that I have heard but at the same time I'm worried about getting all of the deficiency or symptoms because of the lack of B12. What is your take on it and do you think I should not worry?

A common belief is that B12 is found in beef and other animals. It’s actually found in the soil of the food they consume NOT something their bodies make.
It’s not difficult to get b12 and most people, vegan or not, never have to even worry about it.
It’s when your body has a difficult time managing your B12 that you should worry. And that is something medical and would have already been determined at dr. visits. It’s pretty noticeable when you’re having B12 issues (constant headaches, difficulty sleeping, tired/drained all day)

If you have never focused on B12,chances are that as a vegan, you will never have to worry about it lol
They make fortified products like: soy, bread, cereals. That have added b12, but I never used them. I’ve been vegan for 6 years and have never had any issues.

what time should your biggest meal be at?(breakfeast, lunch, dinner)

I personally think all meals should be around the same-ish size. I like to keep my meals around 300-500 calories and have some 150-250 calorie snacks in the day.
