” “”suit and noose””? Is that what you call plant based eaters and environmentally concerned humans? Or is it the people who plant bugs in fruit in grocery stores, listening in to your thoughts!? Perhaps you need to MEDICATE.
|There’s prob a ton of good advice on here, so I’m not sure if I’m adding anything useful, but I was an omnivore that is transitioning vegan.
When I started about 4-5 years ago I gave up red meat and milk completely to start (for ethical and health reasons). Shortly after that I limited lean meats to weekends. Once I realized I was doing fine (if not better) meat free mon-fri, I gave up meat completely and this has been for about 1.5 years.
Now I have been phasing out eggs and cheese. Everyone has their weak spot and cheese is mine. But I’ve been sticking to 100% vegan for a few weeks now w/ the conscious muscle diet plan.
Some vegans are militant and I totally get why. The meat and dairy industry truly is evil. But what they don’t understand is many people get turned off by condescension and anger. Phasing out meat and dairy worked for me. Cold turkey (no pun intended) is very hard to do.
But once I started making rules (ex. No meat mon-fri) it got easy to follow and get accustomed to. But honestly, I can truly say I feel better not just morally but physically. I’m sleeping better and all my best personal records at the gym have come after giving up meat. The real trick is to find the yummy meat substitutes. There are so so many good ones out there!

|heck out dr John Mcdougall starch solution on Youtube or get his books. he explaines how unrefined carbs are healthy and filling, and possibly humans natural staple food, being the “centerpiece” of the meal! and they are very filling, and very good to eat if you are an athlete (we all know runners eat spaghetti)! anyways, just have fun feeling better and more energized and happier!|
