So, about a year ago I met the man of my dreams (so far). He was vegetarian, but didn’t try to implement his diet on me in any way, I came about it on my own after seeing what a great health he had. Of course he was very pleased when I made my transition after a very unpleasant Christmas filled with real physical illness to the point where I wanted to go to the hospital.
In the beginning it was mostly because I couldn’t be bothered with cooking two meals, and I really didn’t mind not eating meat for dinner every day. It’s safe to say that I noticed the difference quickly! I ordered vegi meals for lunch at work and actually found myself sticking to my new life.
But then I became very ill, and my diet became even more restricted to the point where I couldn’t touch sugar, not even in fruit form, yeast, wheat, dairy, eggs basically everything I was already eating. So I decided to eat meat every once in a while, which I couldn’t do for much more than a week I had a new found respect for life and I wanted to find a way to make it work without the meat. It was after this experience that I decided to go vegan, since I couldn’t see the ethics in not eating animals, but consuming their by-products and I’ve been vegan ever since. I later found out I had been mis diagnosed, and am currently suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Since going vegan, I rarely have attacks anymore.
I guess this is a step in another new direction where I really want to go raw but I want to do it right. I want to try for a few weeks and see how I go.
So, this is my hello… :)
