LOL. Meat is a cakewalk compared to sugar. And yeah, veganism is the right way, and it's obvious, but it aint easy coming off the American Diet. It feels like a power curve - the initial steps are pretty easy, but it gets harder the more you approach the end.

I suggest reading Joel Fuhrman for guidance on nutritional intensity, which points to veganism.
I don't grok how health concerns are "selfish" if by "selfish" you mean something like petty and uncompassionate, self-focused rather than other-focused. You have to put on your own oxygen mask first. non? If I get obese and diabetic then I become a "load" on others, do I not? Maybe I misunderstood the tone of voice or something.
As for meditation - it's now my favorite refuge, and I am a two or three times a day guy. Also, I am never, ever "bored." If I have twenty minutes to wait for something - I can use that time well and enjoy it. Bonus points!
Thanks for the suggestion.
