How Much Better I Am Feeling Now that I Am No Longer VeganGiven the huge controversy that exploded out of my articles about being no longer vegan … I wanted to share a personal update. Yes, it’s too soon to say for sure how this will all evolve. No, I have not reversed all the damage yet that I suffered on a vegan diet.
But … I am feeling better. And many people have remarked that I am looking better too after ending my vegan diet. Less frail, less grey, less gaunt. More color in my face. More energy. Less anger. My mind feels much more clear. I feel more optimistic. I have become interested again in many pursuits in which I had lost interest. I have started working out again. I am no longer having chronic leg cramps. My skin has almost completely cleared up, and my recent menstrual cycle was the easiest I’ve had in a long time. Some of the white hairs on my head have already turned back to brown at the root. I feel more … substantial.
I am eating a lot of DHA/EPA (wild caught fatty fish), cheeses that are high in vitamin K2, grass fed butter, pastured eggs, and some meat. I am still eating some vegetables but it’s honestly hard to look at vegetables right now, so sick and tired was I of a nutritionally incomplete diet.
So … time will tell. But I don’t see myself ever returning to a vegan diet :D
By the way, my deepest gratitude to all of you who have sent support and well wishes during this challenging time. I especially appreciate those who honor that my well-being has to come first, if I am to be any good to myself and others. Thank you from my heart.
