So what made me decide to become a Vegan: I guess the simple answer to this question is that for me, there were proven health benefits to a Vegan lifestyle & I did not want to miss out on this simply because I love cheese!
What made me even think about becoming a Vegan – sounds ridiculous but I watched ‘What the Health’ a documentary film about the collusion of industry, government, pharmaceutical companies and health organisations. It made me see things in a completely different light. Now I know that this film was based in America and perhaps some of our companies here in the UK are not the same, but I couldn’t deny that there were very clear health benefits to becoming a Vegan and that for some reason we were not told about this in the mainstream.
So me and my Partner are embarking on a journey to Veganism, to start with we are eating up all of our leftover meat, honey and the such and will be starting our new Vegan lifestyle as of next month. I am not delusional though I know that this process will take time and effort – but I hope to be able to reap the benefits too!
So a little about me, I am 27 an office administrator for a University in the UK. I spend most of my day sat down working at a computer (much like I am doing right now). I walk to and from work (40 minutes per day) but do not undertake much more strenuous activity. I have been for the past year or so suffering from issues with bloating and discomfort after eating (I have not been diagnosed with anything as I have not been to seek help for this) I hope that this new lifestyle will help to ease the bloating and discomfort I feel after eating. I hope it will help to unclog my arteries and decrease my chances of heart disease, diabetes & cancer. We can only try!
You may disagree with my choice or feel that I am making a mistake but you must remember this is my life and ultimately my choice. You may feel that I am not doing this for the right reasons, but you must remember everyone has their own path, their own opinions and their own reasons for doing what they do.
I hope that this blog may help someone who is also looking to transition to a Vegan lifestyle, who knows maybe we can take this journey together.
