Stay with me. Being honest isn’t always easy, especially when it comes to being honest with ourselves. This is not a fat hate post; this is a post about how veganism has really changed my body..in a very negative way. I know there are things I can do better, and I will work on those things, but generally speaking, I do eat a very healthy low sugar, low oil diet that contains enough protein. I know I eat too many things with gluten though. Anyways seeing the first picture makes me want to cry.
Ok, ok, so the above is unflattering and would be for anyone. But here’s another, taken last November:
Since removing meat from my life (and dairy and eggs, which I’ve admittedly struggled with many times-not dairy so much as eggs) I’ve gained more than 40 lbs. I’ve been healthy, I’ve done the low fat, high protein thing..I’ve done everything. And it just seems unhealthy for me. I’m going to take a stab at being raw and see how that affects me. Otherwise…I’m at a loss and veganism doesn’t seem to do my body good…AT ALL. I do want to reiterate though; at this point, I am not considering giving up veganism. I just want to feel healthy and be comfortable with myself, and I’m working on it, but I know nothing happens over night. It’s going to be hard, but I can feel better about myself. Self-hate is so unhealthy…sigh.
