∴What you might experience going vegan∴
This year I will be 6 years old! Six years of being vegan that is 😉 And I’ve said this a million times that going vegan was the best decision I ever made. I’ve also said before, that the reason I initially went vegan was because I wanted to lose weight. I did lose weight…15lbs. But, I also experienced a few other things that a lot of fellow vegans don’t know or just failed to mention about what you may experience when going vegan.
Now this has been MY experience, and I am only sharing with you what you may experience based off of mine.
What you may experience going vegan include, but aren’t limited to these and are in no particular order:
- SKIN ERUPTIONS.
- MILD COLDS/SNIFFLES.
- FEELING “WEAK” OR “SICK”.
- BODY ODOR.
Now, I know all these may sound pretty intense. But what people fail to realize is that these are detox symptoms. These things are also more likely to happen if you go vegan “cold turkey” like I did. Your body is purging itself from all the dead flesh, toxins and build up that has accumulated over the years from eating animals and their by-products. So, you may see more pus-filled pimples; runny nose aka sniffles; increased body odor and sweating. Your body is literally going through an internal transformation that is manifesting externally.
A lot of people have told me, “oh I tried the vegan thing but it made me sick. My doctor told me to quit because it was making me anemic.” And what I tell them is, there is no such thing as going vegan making you sick. You are detoxing. That’s what you are experiencing, especially if you just went vegan a week or two ago. Like you haven’t even given yourself time to adjust. You have to think about how long were you eating animals, and how long it’s going to be before you fully adjust to eating a plant-based diet. The change doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a process.
One very important tidbit of information I would like to share is that it is very important to eat balanced, nutrient rich foods. Take a multivitamin that includes iron and b12. Drink at least 6-8 cups of water daily. And I promise you will be good to go forever on a plant-based regimen.
Aside from the detox symptoms I mentioned above, there are way more benefits for you going vegan that you will experience! I’ll share with you some of mine.
- WEIGHT LOSS!
- INCREASED ENERGY.
- MENTAL CLARITY.
- SPIRITUAL REAWAKENING!
- HEAL QUICKER. IF I DO HAPPEN TO CATCH A BUG, BUT THAT IS VERY RARE. YOUR IMMUNITY TO THINGS GO WAY UP. ALMOST FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE SUPER POWERS! 🙂
- ABLE TO BALANCE ALL ASPECTS OF YOUR LIFE BETTER.
There are so many more benefits to going vegan, not just for yourself but for the planet too. It has truly allowed me to sleep better a night knowing I did not cause harm, or contribute to the harm through purchase or eating of animals. I am confident in my decision. I have healed myself and my family living this way. And I don’t see myself ever going back because life is too good!
Peace & Balance Always!
