So I’ve now been 100% Vegan for 7 days (well today will be 8 actually but I’ve not eaten yet lol) .. For me the decision to turn Vegan is largely based on Health reasons, amongst other stuff, but I won’t bore you with statistics or try and convert you in to becoming vegan but there are undeniably lots and lots of statistics linking meat and diary to various health issues and linking a plant based diet to improved health. For a long time I’ve suffered with digestive issues and bad bloating (sometimes very painful) when I eat, I’ve tried various different things including having an intolerance test, cutting out certain foods like bread etc, trying various supplements, herbal remedies etc. And nothing helped. The one thing I’d never tried was cutting out meat/dairy. So I’ve decided to give it a try and so far I’ve not felt bloated at all, I’ve not felt like my body’s struggling to digest food what so ever and I actually feel much more energetic and full of life! So far so good I’ve actually enjoyed my food and don’t feel I’m missing out on anything either. One thing I have noticed though is how negative people are when you say you’ve turned Vegan people seem to try and tell you not to, make jokes, be really judgemental or tell you you’re going to lack proper nutrition. All I say to that is, I wouldn’t do anything I hadn’t looked in to first and wouldn’t do anything to damage my health. You can still get all the essential nutrients we as humans need without meat and dairy. I’ve been a meat eater for 25 years, I don’t suddenly think all meat eaters are bad people nor will I try to force veganism on to anyone. I will however continue to post pictures of my food and my journey and continue to spread positive vibes and share my love for fitness, health & wellbeing ..
