This is a whole new concept to me and not to mention scary. It’s only scary because I’ve never done anything quite like it before. I’ve done a lot of research on vegan diets and so far have not read or heard any cons, all pros – which means, I really have no reason NOT to do it!
Why am I considering this you might ask? It’s not for any religious or animal rights reason, it’s simply a personal choice to be healthy – our bodies do not naturally digest animal products very well and many of us are actually lactose intolerant but don’t even know it! (And yes, I want to lose weight too).
I’m starting a 30 day trial on August 1st – I’ll be cutting all animal products out of my diet completely and I’ll be doing it cold turkey. I decided to do it cold turkey because I read on many blogs that it is easiest to do it that way. I don’t think there will be any side effects or “withdrawl” symptoms, not like when I did the no carb, no sugar diet. And I’m honestly excited (and scared) but mostly excited. I think the results will be better than what I’m expecting and most likely, this is something I will stick with for a very long time and even maybe the rest of my life. We’ll have to see at the end of the 30 days!
Anyways, I’ll be documenting the 30 day trial here and I’ll try to update everyday!
