Going Vegetarian

I'm thinking about making the transition to a vegetarian or vegan diet. I've been seeing a lot of stuff on TV about it recently and want to give it a good effort. With more and more emerging research supporting the benefits of a plant-based diet, along with fast growing demands, it is easier than ever to give being a vegetarian or vegan a try.

My first goal is to try it for a week and see how far that gets me. I'm going to try to stay away from the negative stereotypes that have plagued most vegetarian and vegans diets. I'm going into this with an open mind and a full heart. It's been a long time since I've been really secure about my body and I need to get back to enjoying it.

I've tried doing this several times before and have failed within a day or two. I think because I put to much pressure on myself. This time I have no expectations for myself or any pressures at the moment. It's just me and the fruits and veggies right now. Let's see what I can do.

This is awesome! The longest I did all veggie was a little over a month. Felt great too. Let me know if you decide to give the vegan thing a try. That is a whole other level and would be tough for me...but when you are committed and focused anything is possible. :) Power to you!

It went ok. I didn't feel like i learned or gained anything. I think that I was just experimenting.
