Thanks for your responses! Do you think only organic is the way to go? It’s hard because it’s really expensive. If people eat regular non organic veggies they are consuming a ton of pesticides. Then I’ve heard organic veggies from a lot of companies are even sprayed. It’s like nothing is safe anymore. I must be like Monroe because way back I was on probably the worst diet one could be on and I had very strong obes. I have really tried going vegan in the past and I usually ended up getting sick and felt incredibly weak. I know the vegan diet really works for a lot of people though. I’m not bashing any kind of diet out there I’m just so confused because I hear so many different stories. I think laying off the sugar would really help me. My body really doesn’t like when I stop consuming protein though. I’ll see if I can find more videos of Tom talking about his diet because if I try again I don’t want to get sick like I have every time I tried that changing up my diet :-(
It is very tricky to get enough protein on a vegan diet. But it is possible if you like beans, and can tolerate soy, whey and other plant proteins. I don't like beans so I include milk, eggs, and fish. I don't eat any other animal meat. I do feel better off of sugar and I've done it for long periods of time. But it is like a drug, and one slip and I seem to be full steam ahead.
Eating organic is the best way to go if you can afford it. Organic farms have to be certified and they get kicked off if they have violations.
