    My reason for changing my eating habits was for weight loss, but to lose weight, I found that eating the way they are talking about here would take me years. I had to do something for faster weight loss. I am down 22 pounds now and plan on another 5 to 10 pounds. After the weight is gone, I will add back some beans and things in the plant based diet that were holding up progress. I'm still eating healthy, but I'm hungry all the time so it's not fun. My goal is to maintain my weight loss once and for all through healthy eating. I have been a yoyo dieter my whole life, and that needs to change. I know I will still have foods that I love from the old days, but only now and then. I think a reasonable goal is to eat plant based 5 days per week…that way I don't feel I'm deprived of my old favorites. I hope it works.

    Being vegetarian is good but eating meat doesn’t give you heart attacks eating other junk food does

    After returning from a 2-day business trip out of town, I learned my husband had turned the door knob around of our son's bedroom, locking him in his room in order to go out at night. I was livid and we began to argue. He began pummeling me, throwing me against a wall, dragging me around the corner into the bedroom, fracturing my left collar bone on the door jamb. The final blow to my left eye left a small vein permanently broken. I'd been knocked out but not long as I came to with water in my lungs from the pot of hot water he'd thrown in my upturned face. All the while, our son was squealing with glee. How could he differentiate between horse play and what had just happened? I began to plan my escape as the growing emotional & verbal abuse turned physical. I wasn't going to have my son grow up seeing that. Shortly before he turned three, with barely $200.00, I left. I was paying all bills as it was as my spouse was "too good" for job after job. Our storage unit had "keepsakes" from each job, the latest on his wrist; manager in training required "advertising." Funny, his now ex-employer was calling me to get it as he'd stolen it!

    I'd escaped west, 2000 miles away and quickly realized meat was no mas in the budget. I think I was predestined to be a vegetarian as I'd push away the beef eating only the potatoes, onions and carrots of the stew as young as 4yo. Today, closer to vegan. Lactose intolerant. Hate puking so no alcohol, either.

    By the time my son was nearly four , my mom & stepfather had come for a visit & upon learning we were no longer eating meat, my stepfather had a fit. "That boy needs meat!" as they sat down to a meal of lentil burgers, roasted potatoes & steamed baby carrots. Lentils are packed with proteins and along with pistachios are noted as early as the Book of Genesis.

    My stepfather was so jazzed about my no-meat burgers and had three! It took awhile but my parents who were then in their early 50s, will now only eat meat 1-2 times a week if at all. My stepfather is 86, my mom, 84. My stepfather had heart issues and has long surpassed the age where the men in his family tree had died from heart disease. My mom was a heavy smoker (if I couldn't afford meat, I sure couldn't afford cigs & to this day can't believe I was a smoker as can't stand the smell) and no matter, I couldn't get through until I asked about her 2nd hand smoke causing heart damage not only to her husband but her beloved dog who sat in her lap all of the time who too had heart issues. Someone whom I told that to told me how harsh that was. I didn't see it that way as my mom is still here. Grateful that they both are.

    It truly isn't difficult to be a vegetarian or vegan. All those many years ago, I'd think, "If someone could make frozen food items for those who don't eat meat!" I get ideas. I guess I send my ideas out in a psychic manner and someone with the know how and $ makes it go!

    One thing that I have learned, is that you can't out-train a poor diet" Light-bulb moment for me. …I sure spent my 20s trying, and never quite understood WHY that dog didn't hunt… especially since it did everything else exercise wise

    it's so disgusting and sad how our government encourages processed food diets & makes it so difficult for people to learn that whole food diets are the only truly healthy diets.

    Look at all those dislikes from heart surgeons everywhere! They'd go out of business if everyone switched to a plant-based wholefoods diet…

    If you want to learn more about how we can prevent and in some cases even reverse chronic disease including heart disease, alzheimer's, diabetes type 2 and cancer, check out Dr. Michael Greger's talk "How not to Die". That's how I started my journey towards health 2 years ago. I can also highly recommend the work of Neil Barnard, Michael Klaper, Noel Fuhrman and Colin T Campbell.
    If you're looking for some recipes, BOSH! on Youtube has the tastiest plantbased food ever!

    A plantbased diet changed my life! Fixed my on-going knee pain and inflammation – I can finally dance again – and made me realise how much suffering and environmental destruction meat, eggs and dairy cause…
    I highly recommend Rip Essenstyn's TEDx talk "plant-strong & healthy living" here on youtube.
