Starting afresh...

Monday, April 01, 2013

hello, all!
I am starting again afresh with my new , healthier plan! I made a life-changing decision for my self two weeks ago...I have ditched meat and am eating vegan...and guess what? I am feeling so much better AND I have lost 4 kilos to boot!

The idea came after visiting my oncologist last month...she suggested cutting back on processed foods and eating more vegetables and pulses. I love such food, but am the only one in the house who does...this does not bother me in the least... I do not fancy meat much, and, except for minor lapses, like one scrap of chicken in one weak moment, I am doing well as I am, and I will stay this way for the forseeable future. Places like McDonalds are right off the menu, and fast food generally is taking a walk. my family reckon that i am overdoing it and are saying that I shouldn't be a born-again vegan, but I am happy with myself for what i am is important to me to eat healthy, and I hope that they will follow me even in some small way in the future...I am trying !

OK, will write more tomorrow!
huggles to you all,

    awesome for you for starting over and nourishing yourself with good stuff. just make sure you read up enough so you get all the proteins and iron you need . Way to go I should eat a lot less meat than I do .

    You need to do what works for you. I read someone's blog and thought she had a great idea - she said she had gone vegan - except when once every couple of months she wants a STEAK or whatever kind of meat and she eats it and then returns to eating vegan again. She said it worked for her and it fit the category of the 80-20 rules that suggest eating healthy 80% of the time or more and allowing 20% off-track still constitutes HEALTHY. Especially if your doctor is in favor of your new choices - I say that you tell the family that you are doing what you need to do for YOU.

    You are the only one to feed your body. They will pick up some good habits, too.
    Good Luck in your healthy lifestyle. You may want to check out the flexitarians spark team. It sounds like that is the way you have decided to eat.
