More About Me

Reasons why I prefer to eat vegetarian or vegan:

Long ago I was exposed to Dr. McDougall's theories about the proper way we should be eating, and I was convinced - although only moderately. I tried it in a limited way and lost some weight but 5 or 6 months later I fell off completely. After that, I ate like a starving American every day and gradually got larger and larger while my health status became worse and worse - even though I did try to be reasonable. Years later, a big person in my life got on a program, believing in it 100%. It seemed to be working for him and he tried repeatedly to convince me that his program was the proper way that we humans should eat and live, and I should follow his lead. It simply reminded me that I KNEW McDougall was right; I finally decided that, for my health, I have to go 'whole-hog' McDougal. With my wife's wonderful support, I launched into his program 1/3/10. I am not vegan out of compassion for all of God's other creatures; I am vegan out of concern for my own, deteriorating health. I guess that makes me a selfish vegan

I joined HappyCow Members Community because:
