Vegan for real? A different life.
Only a few people know that I became a Vegan in beginning of this year. The same people know that I started fine but struggled a lot. I broke up with it often till I found my own way to it. A way that will help me to restore my health.
Yes, I was kinda sick. I had 45kg overweight, was unhappy with my clothes, struggled with my daily life and I looked way older then I was. My doctor never came up to me to say something. He gave me pills and some eating tips. Nothing seemed to help. Frustration was always there. Something had to change. I have to change.
When I started to do my own research about everything I ate and the amount of it, I found out that most of the things I knew where lies. I was lied to by my grandparents, parents, other family members, the advertisings, the news papers and even by my doctor. Everyone may have tried their best to give me options to choose from and they didn’t know that they had spread lies. But, the industry and the advertising companies know how to lie and do it still every day for their profit. My doctor who also should know better, was a part of the Pharma industry and not interested to get me healthier.
I wanted to know more. I found a doctor who did not lie to me and the change began.
How I became a Vegan
I asked my new doctor, read articles (online), watched documentaries and movies, I asked more questions and started to talk about it. Nobody did this before around me, friends and my family. I asked myself; Why does nobody wants to know more about what we eat? The answer is; We grew up with false information. This definitely had to end, at least for me.
The first shock. Finding out that the global traffic makes “just” 18-20% of global emissions but 54-60% of all emissions is caused by growing food for and having a global live stock system, was completely new to me. This opened my eyes. We all were told to buy new cars, go electric and use less energy. But driving an electric car is not the answer when your food causes more risk to all people on this planet. Even to those who don’t eat meat and dairy products because we made them only available to us for such low prices. At this point I realized that I was blind before. Now it was time to open my eyes and be open minded.
With all the knowledge I had now, I needed to change something and find a new way. I tried every kind of salad, nuts and even vegan replacements for meat. It was hilarious and drove me crazy. There has to be something to eat for me to get my health back and there is. It took me a while to understand that there is more than salad and nuts. Nobody needs the industrial crap of vegan “meat”, really. The understanding of nature in me grew in the last months. I found ways to eat healthier but also discovered that I can do mistakes and get sick from a wrong vegan lifestyle.
Today I struggle much less in my daily life. I lost a lot of my overweight and became a much happier person. My doctor likes my new lifestyle and I look now 10 years younger than before. Dating women became an option again and with some luck I’ll find someone, maybe on Tinder.
I can only encourage you to start your own research. Don’t let anybody stop you from being a better version of yourself. Stop lying to yourself and do something for you. “Life is what we make out of it.” someone said. Stop to believe in the lies you grew up with!
