Going Vegetarian... A week later

I never been one to shy away from something new. A little over a year ago I did a 30 day cleansing (no fast food, no pop, etc.) and it worked out well. But I think after about 2 months I fell back into my unhealthy ways and my body paid for it. I gained weight and I started to get aches and pains more than ever before. On top of all this, I wasn't working out too. And it scared my wife... It scared me too, because I just turned 33 and for the first time in my life, I started to get VERY concerned about my well-being. Anyway, before the beginning of the year, I told my wife that I would go vegetarian for 30 days. (It wasn't a New Year Resolution or anything... Just felt it was a good starting point) I didn't actually start till this past Monday.

So I'm writing to tell you guys how the past week went. I decided to still eat diary products, but no fish, pork, beef, or chicken. (I felt like going without diary products or vegan would of been too much-for now) I initially thought that I would be hungry all the time... But I really haven't. I have been feeling very good. Like when I wake up in the morning, I noticed that I have more energy. I feel lighter, but haven't lost any weight yet. Don't get me wrong, I do get the urge to eat meat every now and then, but it's nothing too bad. I use to feel a little pain every now and then near where my heart is located but haven't felt it, since going vegetarian. And not to gross you guys out... Doing the #2, seems to be easier... Lol I just feel healthier. I'm interested in finding different vegetables and more recipes to try.

I will continue this and see how the next few weeks go and check in with you guys in a month. Hey you never know, depending on how I feel, I may make this a permanent thing.

  1. Keep up the good work. You may want to try the veggies in liquid or juice form it's easier to digest and you can get more veggies and fruit in. I can't do dairy and our bodies are use to digesting process dairy. You may want to try some Almond or coconut milk as a dairy sub......anyway stay strong and keep eating clean......!

  2. Thanks for the feedback bro. I have already been thinking about diary substitutes and maybe incorporating juicing as well... Just taking one day at a time.
