VEGANISM is a way of living which seeks to exclude as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.
“A person who follows a vegan diet produces 50% less CO2, and uses 1/llth oil, and 1/13th water and 1/18th land compared to a meat eater.” – Cowspiracy
Eating a plant based diet and living a vegan lifestyle, does a lot for this planet – which frankly, needs US to save it.
However, the only reason it matters for me, being a vegan, is that it saves animals.
This lifestyle is: H I G H C A R B.
I am a continually reforming chronic dieter – I have suffered through bro-diets of chicken, rice and broccoli for 4 meals a day to a macro counter where every ounce of food, beverage and vitamin was accounted for. I have survived bulimia and periods of absolute bingeing and purging. To now, me eating consciously… I guess in the fitness world this is called “intuitive eating”, but I choose the term consciously – because I am conscious that what I am putting in my body isn’t tainted with torture and death.
It is safe to say, without citing any research – that eating a plant based / vegan diet means you are naturally going to be consuming a higher (than probably normal) carb intake.
Don’t carbs make you fat?
If you choose to follow me on my plant based adventure, for whatever your reason you find – I want you to know that it is completely worth a try to save the life ON this planet and the life OF this planet.
