I’ve been vegan for a while now. I feel great. Thanks everyone. This site has been pretty helpful. I’ve been reading around a bit and found this. Just thought I’d share. I’m sure some of you know about him already. http://drmcdougall.com/index.html
He actually recommends a roughly 80/10/10 carb/protein/fat ratio. I’ve logged my diet on fitday.com for several days, and am surprised how naturally I gravitate towards that ratio!
Anyway, here are my questions.
1. The hardest thing to deal with is my social life. I’m getting lots of “why do you eat like a rabbit?”s and “man, why can’t you just enjoy life a little?”s. And I’ve already given up trying to explain that “clean” feeling to them. So how do you guys deal with things like eating out?
2. Can any of you recommend some good books about blood pH level for me to read? I’ve been pretty interested in that lately, and google just doesn’t cut it. And on Amazon, I’ve only been able to find diet books. I’m looking for a largely informative book, not a book telling me what to eat.
Thanks in advance, guys.
