19 Months Of Being Vegan

What The Vegan Diet Did To Me In 19 Months

 

As you may know if you’ve been following me, I went all the way vegan as an experiment a while back that was meant to be for 30 days.  Now it’s 19 months later and I’m still eating Vegan Style.

So What’s happened To Me On The Vegan Diet?

To get a clear picture, I’ve been Vegan or Vegetarian since 1996 and I’ve done this lifestyle in just about every way you can imagine.

When I had my first child, I began to wonder if Milk would be important for his development, so after my wife and I talked about it we started consuming milk a little more frequently and it gradually became a regular staple again, along with some organic cream, cheese, and yogurt.

19 months ago, I decided to give it a break to see if my health improved.  So did it?

My answer is Yes, I think.

Now I’m pretty sure I’m better off, but it’s very difficult to compare how I feel now, to how I feel then.

What I do know now, is I’ve had a few blood tests since I’ve been eating Vegan style and everything looks real good.

In addition to that, I’ve lost a few pounds, and I feel great.

My fitness has improved for sure, but that may be partly related to the little differences in my exercise regime right now.  Part of that change is I work out less, believe it or not.

My handstands are better than ever and my strength and speed are a little better than when I started this Vegan experiment.

To keep this story short, let’s just say, I’m not ready to go off the Vegan Plan for now.

In addition to the fact that I feel great, I’m more convinced that the Vegan Diet, done correctly, is a pretty optimal way of eating.

I’ve also become more convicted about eating vegan because it’s better for the whole world on a number of levels.

I may go into more detail about exactly why I think that Vegan Diet is better for the world in general soon, but for now I’m going to suggest you watch the movie Cowspiracy, as that movie will clue you in on some of the why.

One Thing I Know For Sure.

You Can Be Extremely Healthy Eating Vegan Style.
