It has been a busy holiday season to say the least. I always say I am going to do something and post results on my blog but it never gets done. Life gets in the way, supposedly. Anyway I know it has been a 2 months since I posted I was going vegan. OMG! Horrible, I know. SO this is what I have to say about going vegan for 2 weeks.
- I lost 5lbs. This was mostly because I was cooking my own food since there isn’t 100% vegan options out there. Also because I stopped eating any type of dairy, I could actually poop. I have always had issues with not going on the regular. But once I cut dairy out of my diet I felt amazing.
- I was not bloated at all! I mostly always get bloated because I was always constipated.
- I had a lot more energy! I love my coffee and always drink coffee in the morning, but once I started the diet I didn’t need it. Weird I know! I freaking looooveee coffee.
- It was not that hard because my fiance did it with me. I’m sure that if he didn’t do it with me than I would have had a harder time sticking it the diet.
Needless to say I went cold turkey and went all in. I don’t suggest you do that unless you have extreme willpower to just change your diet like that. I did it for 2 weeks and stuck to it. If you are looking into possibly going vegan I suggest you start out small. You can start by slowly removing certain foods from your diet, such as dairy or if you are out somewhere and they have a tofu option choose that. I think you should start slow.
Fast forward 2 months after and I would not call myself vegan but I have limited my dairy and meat consumption. I used to eat cheese and sour cream like crazy but now I opt out. I realized after going vegan that dairy was what made me constipated. I don’t drink cow’s milk either. I have vanilla almond milk creamer for my coffee and I don’t even need to add sugar which is great! I also did gain all my weight back because after I was vegan for 2 weeks I started eating out a lot! I ate a lot of starch like fries and white rice. That plumped me up real quick. I took it easy on the working out too. I don’t know about you but when it’s holiday season and it’s cold all I want to do is Netflix and chill and cuddle. Also there is nothing wrong with this! You should be able to love yourself at any shape.
My final words would be if you are going to go vegan, start out slow. If you don’t want to be vegan, get rid of the dairy in your life. You don’t really need it. That’s just me though.
