Another side effect from eating a vegan diet: my energy level is through the roof! I just can't stop moving or doing things! The other night I caught myself running to the store down the street from our house. Just wanted to run; walking just wasn't enough for me! LOL

i use to have the gas / bathroom side effect until i saw a video by dr mcdougall on the benifits of a starch based plant diet. the gas and the constant running to the bathroom problem ended. you still go a few times a day, but it's not an emergency and i don't have to plan trips around where bathrooms are.

Side effects of a vegan diet: Your sides will slim down nicely. When you go out to eat, you might have to order sides. People start whispering about you off to the side...saying "have you seen so-and-so? ...what are they doing to look so good?" Your doctor used to scoff at your vegan diet, but now scratches the side of her/his head because the crazy vegan is so darn healthy.

So, I've been eating a vegan diet for about two months now. Looking back, I can honestly say that a good side effect for me is that I'm eating A LOT less processed foods! Probably because I'm cooking my meals at home more. So happy cuz I feel so good! Why didn't I start this way of eating earlier???
Have a happy healthy week everyone! :)
