Hello. After 18 years of fish being my only animal flesh, I went back to eating meat as I thought my body was telling me I needed it. LOADS of kebabs later I put on a lot of weight. I entered a depression just last year and was told I was on the verge of needing tablets for high cholesterol. With diabetes also running in the family, I decided it was time to go vegetarian. That was so easy that I toyed with the idea of going vegan. It wasn’t until watching the documentary What The Heath swung it for me and I made the choice to do it. Obviously some of the facts and figures I took with a pinch of salt, but what was in the documentary was enough for me. I’m now two weeks in and it has been so easy so far. Maybe it’s the placebo effect, but I feel great. I have more energy, I feel fuller for longer and I’m sleeping a lot better. I haven’t been on my bike since November last year, so the time has come to start getting fit with it. I hope to update to date fairly regularly and hope some of you join me and offer any encouragement and tips if possible. Cheers!
