I went vegan for 2 weeks

Hey everyone! So my fiancé and I have decided to go vegan for 2 weeks. I chose 2 weeks because it seemed like it only 2 weeks based on a documentary I watched on Netflix called “What the Health” to show any benefits. 2 weeks is actually a short amount of time too. I see that there may be additional benefits without consuming animal products or dairy. Some benefits include:

  1. Reduces the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes
  2. Lowers cholesterol
  3. Lowers blood pressure
  4. May reverse prostrate cancer if in early stages
  5. Reduced saturated fats since you’re not eating any meat
  6. Lower BMI
  7. More energy
  8. Weight loss

I’ll post my journey on this blog. I purchased Silk nut milk that comes with 10 grams of protein and I also bought Musclepharm’s new like products which includes organic plant based protein and even a vegan pre-work out. Stay tuned!

A little behind but here’s a measuring tip!

Holy crap it has been a while since I have posted anything on my blog and I truly apologize. School has recently started and I am getting more hours at work so it is getting a little hard to throw in a post. With that being said I found something that might interest all of you.

How to count food

I find this very interesting and helpful because I have recently started to count my macros. I needed a change and I felt I was not reaching my goal fast enough. With that being said since I have started counting my macros I have lost a few pant sizes as well as 10 pounds. I realized I was getting way too much protein in my diet. Yes, more protein is good if you are a bodybuilder but like they say too much of something is not always a good thing. Regardless I am still learning about this whole macros deal but I have noticed a change since I started counting. This is not for everyone and my macros will be different from yours therefore I will not state how much I need. Let’s just say I work out 5-6 times a week. I do heavy lifting as well as cardio. Anyway for all you counters out there, hope this helps!
