So, how do you currently eat?
Also, why do you not have your own garden?

I am a 24 yr old female.
I have been trying to go vegetarian for years. It would always only last about a week or two and then I'd have a piece of Chicken at a barbeque or a burger at a retaurant. I also couldn't stand people laughing at me for not eating meat, or trying not to eat meat. When I did, I just felt so bad afterward. I didn't like that. I couldn't understand why I did it, if I didn't really want to.
After finding out I had a medical condition, I decided to cut out all meat and dairy, as the growth hormones just agrevate my condition. It's been 6 weeks since my OP today, for the first 3 I still had some dairy here and there, and two portions of meat.
For 3 weeks now, I have been a full on vegan. I cannot stress enough how much better I feel. I feel AWAKE. I feel more present. I can actually wake up in the morning when my alarm screams. I actually have to cook my food every night. No take aways.
It feels so good to know what I am eating, and that my energy goes into it when I make it. It feels great to know that I am not contributing to some caged up cow being milked for all she's worth, and have her calves stripped away from her.
I will never go back. I know now that the short lived taste of cheese or pizza will quickly turn into guilt which in turn will make me feel like a weak willed person. It's just not worth it.
I feel too good now.
I wonder how I will feel after a couple of months...

Sorry if it came of rude. It was rude. I am not an authority on your health as you know. Do what's best! Sounds like you are doing just that. Peace!

It's just that I spend tons of time thinking about and studying how to eat healthy so I was rather taken aback to have a result of my study and thought characterized as "crap"...but well, this is the real world and I am too sensitive...I might very well come to look on it as crap myself in the future...edit on 21-3-2012 by elliotmtl because: (no reason given)

I personally find it extremely difficult to not eat ice cream during a late evening desire. Why it is a sugar fascination during that time I don't know.

Actually I think its determined by the teeth. We have canine teeth to tear meat. We have grinding teeth to grind plant material. I guess we should be eating meat and plant material. Oh wait, thats what I eat. I am 55 and no one thinks I am over 45. Really. When I tell people how old I am they are amazed.

Even if you eat 100% organic fresh vegetables you are still eating genetically modified abominations

Even if you eat 100% non-hormone/anti-bacterial injected, farm raised, grass/naturally feed, and humanly raised and killed animals its still crap. You are what you eat, but we are the world, and the world is #.
