“I couldn’t do it, I need my grease (referring to pork, ribs and fried foods, like catfish)”
“You really have gotten small..are you alright?”
I usually respond politely with a pleasant smile and I don’t usually say much, unless the person shows genuine interest. Lord knows, I’m not in the offending business.
But inside I am yelling, “you can do this, if you want to, you don’t have to eat meat..that’s your choice. I look good because of the way I eat..you should give it a try. That grease is going to give you a heart attack..high cholesterol..and who knows what else. Am I suppose to be overweight?”
Those of you who think you can’t eat a vegan or raw food vegan diet (plant-based diet), know that it can be done. Granted, it is not easy, but if you gradually transition, you will find that you can do it.
I devised a list of reasons why you should consider eating a vegan/plant-based diet based on my experience and studies. The benefits of eating a vegan diet are enormous. Below are 16 reasons why you should consider eating a plant-based diet:
Helps cleanse the body
Achieve your ideal weight
Lower blood pressure
Rarely get sick (colds, flu)
Regular and easy bowel movements, like clockwork
Increased fiber intake
Lower risk of heart disease
Lower risk of prostate, breast, and other cancers
Lower risk of developing chronic diseases (diabetes, heart disease, etc)
