My Story...

I started being Vegetarian when I was 18 (last year of High School).  I did very well for 15 years then I decided to see the difference between eating some meat -vs- no meat.  Another 11 years later my friend put me up to the Vegan Challenge...I took it!  I did it for 3 months and for some reason I had troubles with my body adapting to the new way of eating.  I took B Complex which helped but I was still always hungry.  I decided to eat Vegetarian meals instead and since then I hv been doing well.  I will not turn back to meat and if anything my GOAL is to be 100% VEGAN!  I know it will take time but I am already eliminating certain dairy foods.  It can be accomplished and with the help of research online, magazines and people I can do it!  If you are switching to Vegan do not expect your body to except the change right away, it all takes time and everyones body is different, LISTEN to your body and do what is right for you.  I am 44 years old now and feel great!  I do not need meat or dairy in my diet.  PS - Unsweetened Almond Milk is EXCELLENT! :O)

I am converting to Vegan eating and living. I make many Vegan recipes and love them! I also use Vegan skincare and would like to know of some good Vegan brands of makeup. I hope to learn and share Vegan eating and livng through this new facebook page and Blog.

    This is absolutely fine. Go slow if you wish, but choose what you consider as right. I was a non-veg too, I gave up meat and egg, but still consume dairy products. IMHO, doing is one step at a time is just fine.

    Lana I like your story, it reminds me of my own. When I became a vegetarian, I did it slowly and I believe that made the difference because I never had any problems with missing anything. Now I`m a vegan and just like you, I also feel great, not only physically but consciously as well. I voted up and now I`m following you :)
