I get asked this question all the time ever since I switched to a plant-based vegan diet.
“I could never give up meat, it tastes sooooo good.”
“I would die without cheese.”
I used to eat meat and dairy all the time. I lived on pizza. Meat lovers pizza to be specific.
Chocolate milk used to be my favorite thing in the world.
But I realized that my health and an animal’s life wasn’t worth that couple minutes of pleasuring my taste buds.
At first it was hard. I did crave pizza and meat and all those things.
But when my diet switched, so did my life.
I started seeing things for how they really were and not how society claimed it to be.
My head became clearer. My energy levels were so high. I felt so much lighter and healthier.
It’s been about a year now and my life is so amazing because of my choice to change my diet.
I would say it took about a month to fully get rid of all the cravings. The more time went on the more I started despising meat and dairy.
Pretty soon it actually started to disgust me.
I finally saw it for what it truly was and now I could never eat it again.
I don’t see meat as food, I see it for what it is. It is the bloody, dead flesh of a poor tortured animal.
I don’t see milk as a drink. I see it as a pus filled concoction of estrogen and growth hormones. I see it as a liquid that was meant for a cow. A cow that was killed or deprived of the milk just so a human could enjoy breastfeeding from a mother cow.
So, no, I do not crave meat or dairy. Not even one bit. It actually disgusts me now that I see it for what it really is.
A lot of people reply with, “Oh, you’re just saying that to defend your vegan argument to prove you are right.”
First of all, that is not true at all. I am always honest and straight up. I have nothing to defend.
Second of all, this is where all the misunderstanding comes from.
People see everything as I’m right and you’re wrong.
Everything is a competition when people are living through the ego.
I do not follow this diet to give myself some weird sense of superiority. I do not think I am better than anyone else. I do not try to be better than anyone else. I only try to be better than who I was yesterday. I am only in competition with myself.
I do not think I am right because I follow a vegan diet. I do not think people who eat meat are wrong and inferior.
I advocate for a plant-based vegan diet because it is the healthiest, and the best for; us, animals and the planet.
I do not present my information to try to say I am right, and you are wrong.
I am simply just trying to educate everyone. I put all these facts out there to help people.
I am trying to help people be healthier and make better choices.
You do not have to listen to me if you don’t want to. I am putting the information out there for people who actually care about their well-being. I put the information out there for people who care about animals and who would like the world to still be around for their children.
I believe diet and lifestyle is the most important thing in a person’s life. What you eat decides your whole life.
I grew up having the worst diet imaginable. I grew up on fast food and pop tarts. There were plenty of days where I would eat a pop tart for all three meals of the day.
I used to be sick 10 months out of the year. I always had a cold. I was always so lethargic.
Once I changed my diet my whole entire life changed.
A plant-based diet is the cheapest, healthiest diet for everyone.
Everything I do is to help other people because I wish someone would have told me all this stuff 10 years ago.
I am just trying to help. I’m not here to prove a point and say I am better, and I am right.
Everything I do, is to help you live a better life.
