So after 1 1/2 weeks of vegan, I decided thats NOT my style.

I miss my eggs. Especially eggs. An I had phantasies about a steamed salmon on chard with rice an a japanese sauce.
My protein intake was pretty low and even if I like lentils and beans - My body don't
So I had terrible cramps and was constantly hungry.

And - see my last post - I was thinking TOO much about food.

I did not loose any pound. I don't feel healthy(er) than normal.

But I realized one thing. In the future I will get my meat from the local farmer. Once a month he butchers pork and one week later beef.
I will eat 1-2 times a week meat or fish - but vegan? No .... thanks. Not with my food allergies which makes it even harder.

So, I'm a bit grumpy cause I do not want to spend too much time thinking about food and thats where it ends.

I simply wanna life a healthy normal life. Where food is only a small part in.
If someone will ask me in 20 years, what I have done 2013 - I wanna say:
I lived. I enjoyed my family. I travels. I was creative. I had a great job (well, I'm working on it!)
And not: I counted calores and thought about food all time.

so: off off - grumpiness! :)

    It's so good that you gave vegan a trial. I know that would be so difficult for me, living on a dairy farm and loving my meat and eggs, etc. Moderation in all things is my motto, but doesn't always work! I'll always be working on it! Good luck to you with feeling better and more alive!

    Better off with what suits you best. But probably good that you tried it as you now don't have to wonder what it would have been like.
