Tina that is admirable and welcome to the team. When I was introduced to the atrocities I was physically ill for a solid week. I went raw organic vegan overnight with the help of green smoothies. I can't handle cooked or processed phood at all and I've never been healthier. I am now following a juice feast that ends in 30 days and then when I start eating going 80/10/10 by Dr. Douglas Graham.
Hi There, I'm 65 -- with 25 pounds to lose. More importantly, I want to consistently move towards vegan eating -- starting by being a vegetarian. I already don't eat beef or pork -- so it's goodbye to chicken as a first step. Although I know meat-free eating is good for MY body, I am more concerned about the horrific cruelty that factory farmed animals endure so we can (literally) pig out. I intend to lend my voice and time to help free farm animals from the thoughtless bondage and suffering we inflict upon them -- and ultimately eating as a vegan will be my way of loving animals the way the deserve to be loved and respected! Glad to have found this group -- I look forward to eating healthy with all of you!
