    thank you for this! I am currently on what I call a "veggie adventure", and for the most part I've been cutting out meat, but its great to not have the pressure of a label of Vegetarian, as that seems to mean i can never have meat. I'm just here to minimise my impact on the environment and do what I can, without going full out vegan as for me thats not an option at this time. Maybe it will be someday, who knows. But my point is, thank you for sharing your experience, and I know since this you've gone vegan – and I really admire you for being a plant based advocate! Very inspiring x

    Right now the only meat I eat is chicken and turkey bacon and I don't have either one that often so I would say that's progress. Would I like to be a vegetarian eventually? Yeah, I would, but I'm just taking it one step at a time 🙂

    What you are describing sounds like hypoglycemia and i was vegetarian until I was 11 but I couldn't get enough nutrients and started to crave meat when I got my period. Many meats I have gone back to not eating but I also keep chocolate m&ms on me at all time because I cannot function because when my blood sugar drops

    I got that feeling too! I remember deciding I wanted to finally go veggie, then coming downstairs and my dad had made a chicken curry, and eating it I was chewing it so slowly like 'I do not want to do this'. Meat just doesn't seem like an option at all anymore, it just doesn't make sense

    This is so interesting! Thank you for this video! I've been cutting down on my meat for the past few months because I think I was relying too heavily on meat for protein and I've been learning about alternatives, not just substitutions. I'm doing it entirely for myself and also the amount of animals I was consuming was bothering me. I too get low sugar levels verrrry quickly and for a long time it was a nuisance but I've learnt to live with it and how to prevent it if it happens. Just what you were saying is inspiring and interesting to hear 🙂

    As a vegetarian I often get so much hate from some vegans because I eat animal products and I don't understand it because at least it better than nothing! It's ridiculous

    I was vegetarian for a little less than a year before I went vegan, and I've only been vegan for a month now. It's definitely something I don't think is easy to jump into. It took me a little while before I could actually become vegan, but you are totally on the right track!! If doing this slowly works best for you then that's fine, the main thing is that you are doing what you can and who knows some day you might become vegan. It's great to see more and more people open up about this!!x

    wow i didn't even know you were vegetarian! i'm vegan and i feel the exact same way about the thought of eating animal foods. Love that you're not just another fit girl calling herself "vegetarian" "vegan" but they only do it for health or something and it only lasts a few weeks or months. And every bit of effort is important especially when doing it for ethics! love you!

    I'm so proud of you 🙂 I've been now about 4,5 year vegan and when I start been vegan all my friends and parents ask me how I survive now 'cause you don't eat meat and where I get my protein. But I showed to everyone that I can get the all thinks to be vegan than somebody take at meat. And I feel much better now.
    P.S. you're so beautiful and you have so beautiful eyes too 🙂 hopefully we meet someday at some event 🙂

    I experience the exact same thing with the low blood sugar thing. I thought it was just me. I always have to have some kind of snack with me at all times because I get worried its going to happen when I am somewhere and can't get a snack. I thought it was just hunger but now it makes more sense that it is blood sugar. Do you have any tips on how to manage it? or anything else that you have found out about it like why it happens? Also love your channel by the way!

    I became a pescatarian last week (a vegetarian that eats fish) and I had a question for you. How much yogurt/protein powder do you eat in a day to make up for the protein you don't get from meat?

    Hey grace, I've recently gone veggie due to environmental/ethical reasons, I have cut down on other animal products like dairy but not planning on going completly vegan. Couldnt agree with you more, no matter how much you cut out whether you just cut out 1 type of meat, that's still a contribution!! I have recenty got back into fitness and unlike last time i'm obviously not eating meat. I am aware of other sources of protein but whilst tracking my macros (my fitness pal) im finding that my diet seems to be more relient on carbs and i'm worried this is going to affect my progress. Do you have any advice on how I could cut down the carbs without starving myself, clearly you're not struggling to retain/ build muscle whilst following a veggie diet! Thank you xx

    Also, instead of harribos try getting multi packs of vegan bars like naked bars, treck bars or cliff bars off amazon (they're cheaper this way) and take one everywhere with you in your bag, probably healthier than sweets too👍🏻 cliff bars and treck bars are good for protein too xx

    hey Grace! thanks for the great video, it was really helpful 🙂 i would reaaaally appreciate your help on this: i've always felt like my mindset and my love for animals didn't quite fit my eating habits, and i've been considering going vegetarian/vegan for a long time. also i can't really afford protein supplements and protein bars on a daily basis (i eat them rarely) and right now i rely on meat, fish, beans, dairy and eggs to get my protein intake. the problem is that i don't think im having as much protein as i should… i started weight training a few months ago and i follow several girls who lift on youtube, but they all eat SO MUCH MORE protein than i do right now and much less carbs… i would like to go vegetarian but i'm reaaally scared it's gonna make me gain fat by having even more carbs every day. should i wait until i start working and making money to buy whey protein and other supplements and make the change then? or is it safe to go vegetarian now and know that i won't be gaining fat or compromising the figure i want to achieve?

    I think you would love veganism, since you're actually invested in the ethical side of things and don't bullshit about pseudoscience claims, it's also really interesting from the philosophical/political point of view too! And you can get veggie marshmallows from holland and barrett if ya want to try them out 😉 They're no flump, but cruelty free so ya still feel good about yourself x

    Yes girl! I love this so much! I just found your channel! & I have just gone vegetarian a few months ago as well! Going vegetarian is something I never thought I could do. Even to this day, 9 months later… I still miss the TASTE of it. I loved the taste. But I could never eat it again. Ever. But anyways, good for you!! Excited to watch more of your videos! 🙂

    I watched a program on Netflix called vegucated a couple months ago which really opened my eyes to the meat industry. I've cut down so nuch I used to have meat every day with pretty much every meal. now it's only 2/3 times a week. I'm so much more conscious when choosing foods. The only thing I struggle with is eating out, I find restaurants near me have very little vegetarian options so I don't feel I could commit to being vegetarian.

    @gracefituk Hi Grace! i just found your videos. I've also started at the gym for a few months now and have been struggling with eating vegetarian or vegan in terms of my fitness goals. If you could do a video or tell me how you work your vegetarian diet into your fitness goals that would be a god send. For example for cutting, bulking or general healthy eating xxxx

    I have recently been having a really hard time eating meat–I guess I have just eaten it so much that my body has gotten sick of it?–and so I am having a hard time reaching my protein goals. Any tips on how I can reach those goals without revolving around meat?

    I have this exact feeling of my mind set changing in relation to the thought of eating meat…. it's surprisingly overwhelming! Great comment you made about not trying to use meat alternatives in every meal- that is something I have struggled with. I'm not sure where the hate in some of these people comes from, don't take any notice, blimey.. I do think some people just want to watch the world burn😅 literally and figuratively haha xx

    I agree 100% with you! I've recently stopped eating meat and dairy and as it hasn't been a straightforward, total success it has made some people wonder and comment on my diet and asking what I am (I don't like labels either!) in terms of my diet. So what if I've been flexible about it – the most important thing is that I've become aware of these things and I do my best to stick to vegetarianism and even veganism most of the time. Every little helps!

    Hi Grace, im just wondering, if your struggling with low blood sugar, would something like a banana or some fruit or fruit and nut bar etc not work just as well? Why does it HAVE to be sweets? I'm not criticising i'm just wondering why you seem to need to use sweets to increase blood sugar. 🙂 Ive been a vegetarian for around 14 years now so its great to see others now making this lifestyle change.

    Been following you for a while and I've always said I could never be a vegetarian, and while I still don't think I could cut meat out entirely, I want to start cutting back. I absolutely love that you're spreading this idea that labels are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things and that individuals don't have to be perfect ALL the time, because I really share a similar mindset and am just so happy to see you being a positive influence!!
